SOURCE: whirlpool duet front loadsher leaks at the bottom of door. how do you replace the seal around the door

Hey Guys or Gals


The Whirlpool Duet Washer and why it Leak's. 1) Make sure the Boot(which is the black thing that hook's to your tub and your door) And the ring around it, is tight.Now this Ring,is a Metal Band that keeps the boot on the tub Tight .You can tighten it or loosen it..ifs its loose, then it will leak...Then, there's a Ring around the door as well, Both of these rings are hard to see..so make sure, your really looking good. Now what most people don't thing about is the Main Inlet Tube.On page 18 in the manual.on picture 3.5 it show this source of water that comes into the tub.,this Main Inlet Tube that connect to the Dispenser Assembly,will come loose and will Drip or at times Leak bad,To be able to understand where this is located. First 1) take of the top cover of the washer, 2) take off the front part that hold the door on.That means when you look at your Manual look to pages 31,32,33 and this will tell you how to take off the front of the washer,It's not that hard, to take off,just take your time..and have an extra pair of hands helping you, so it easier and faster.But once you get the front of the waster off,and yes that counts the Electronic display header,That's that button you push to run the washer,,it will pop off after you take a couple of screws out ,after you take the top of the was off..you see them. but back to the MAIN TUBE INLET, this will loosen and water will leak from this now when you replace the boot on this the tube will come loose when trying to put your ring around the boot,you cant tell that its loose becaue you cant see if after installing the boot,i know this dont make any since,but im sure it will if your start to tear it apart..and taking these steps to fix the leak. just make sure that you track the leak,to make sure that this is it...just make sure you take the steps to repair it ..if that means order a new piece then do it. But These Step Will Save you Lots of Time & Money if your Going to play someone to fix it...Here's the Link to the Manual,Just download it and go to the pages i put down ..Might have to copy and paste the address

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Sport HT - Left Front occ. leaks a lot of water

hello. i dont have to tell you that these intermittent problems are often the most difficult to isolate ...........sooooooooooooo lets look at all of the possible causes for your machine leaking

Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

  • Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.

  • The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.

  • Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.

During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

  • Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.

  • Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.

  • Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

My whirlpool duet (Model # WFW8400TW02 )washer stopped working. the steel drum is not rotating and clothes are not getting washed. please let me know what could be the problem.. --Ritu


If this has a belt, then the belt may be broken or stretched out. Bad drum bearings can seize up and won't let the drum rotate anymore. A bad door switch can cause the machine not to run.

Cannot get power; outlet is fine. Duet washer 1.5 yr. old. Door locked


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model front loading washers. If you experience a problem where the door becomes jammed and will not unlock or open, here's an easy way to gain access inside your washer WITHOUT calling the repairman.

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

Duet Sport HT WFW8400TE Washer: Whirlpool Duet Sport HT front loader is stopping b...


First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

Whirlpool Front Loading Door leaking water


The most common cause for a front loading washer to leak from the front door is a torn or detached gasket where that gasket attached to the machine.
Open the door and begin to pull the gasket away from the opening. Look for any problems. If you find a place where the gasket is not firmly secured to the opening, you can list that area up and glue (even with super glue) the gasket back down to the metal opening.
If you find gasket damage, it will need to be replaced.
