    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.

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 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.

Leaking out of the bottom

The water drainage pipe is probably tampered. You need to replace it. Take apart the washing mashine and find the drainge pipe. If it is not tampered, some pipe is loose or broken in the washine mashine. If all this is too hard, call a repair man to fix it.
