    There is a small leak from the lower side of the door. I have tried removing build up around the gasket and clearing the 3 small drain holes that are located in the rubber gasket. We still have a leak.

    Can anyone help?

I had this problem and was really stressing b/c I really did not want to call someone out to fix it. As it turns out, it ended up just being a seriously HUGE chunk of lint that had gotten lodged into the plastic piece that keeps the door closed. It took me about 10 minutes to get this thing out, but the leaking problem seems to be solved. I am SO happy that's all it was!!

So, check at the top of the rubber rim (I'm not a handy woman at all, so I don't know all the right terms). There should be a whiteish piece that hangs down to lock the washer door. Make sure there's nothing obstructing it/in the middle of it. (you may have to look from the side w/ a flashlight). Hope that helps!!

Why is my frigidaire washing machine model # ltf2140fs2 door is hard to shut and the hinges are rusted


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the door on your Frigidaire washer, model# LTF2140FS2, is hard to shut and the hinges are rusted. There could be a possibility that there is a leak that is rusting the hinges. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the door won't shut and why the hinges are rusted. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Leaking under machine


If it's leaking you need a new door seal. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5520777

Taking it off is kind of hard. You have to take the top off, the door lock off, and the front off, and the screws out of the bottom on the drain filter. Make sure it's not leaking from the bottom by putting water in the tub. Check to see if the gasket is torn on the inside by removing the spring ring with a flat head. Find your way to get it back on after replacing this part. The rings are tricky.

Water is leaking during the wash cycle. Nothing shut in the door. Been happening with the fuller loads.


try wiping or cleaning off the bottom part of the door,i've seen pieces of hair on the door and water leaks down the pieces of hair through the door,if that's clean then check for a hole in the rubber boot seal,most likely there's a hole in it

Water leaking bottom front door


Check out the front seal carefully for a replacement. Due to the flexibility of the seal, it is not to easy to spot a tear mark, Under pressure of an operation load, a small tear will allow water leaking through, so there is a leak. It is very common that a hard sharp object left inside clothing and during washing cycle, it makes its way to the seal and cause a damage. Hope this can help.

GE front loading washer leaking


With only a limited amount of information, I would guess your door seal may be worn....but how can you check it? Take a reqular piece of paper (8.5x11) and cut a strip 1x11. Open the door and while holding onto the paper strip, put the strip in the TOP of the door and shut it to see how the seal 'feels' when you try to pull the paper out. It should be very hard, if not impossible to pull the strip of paper out. Now, do the same thing with the bottom of the door. Does it appear to be much easier? Without knowing the age of the machine, I might question the door seal. You might also want to check to see if the door might not be bent just a bit. Do this by placeing a long level vertically along the front facing with the door open, then check the door for level. It may be as simple as bending the top of the door out while you bend the lower part in.

Good Luck
