You might have a bent door hinge, but most likely you have a worn door boot. its the grey rubber thing that the glass seals to.
try to lift up on the door to get the hinges back into place and if that doesnt work then you might need to replace the door boot.
look at the edge of the boot where the glass hits it. the glass must seal to the rubber and if the rubber is worn or torn then it wont seal.
not an easy piece to replace but it can be done. i wouldnt recommend trying it first as you will find it very tight to get your hands into and the clamps are hard to figure out as well.

We have the same problem with our LG washer. Don't think the door can be adjusted but I'm not for sure. I think the gasket is wore out but haven't checked on fixing the problem yet because it barely leaks.

Model wm0642hw front load. it leaks by door frame.rubber seal with clamp.only 2 years old. do i need to change the door frame outer part a151? thanks for your response in advance


Hi, If the door isnt loose or broken? Its more likely to be the rubber door seal if its leaking between the seal and the door glass. Check the edge of the seal where it touches against the glass for damage or ware if its ok clean any soap residue or bits from the glass.If it still leaks change the door seal.

My front loader washer is leaking at the door and it don't seem to get my clothes clean what do i do


Inspect the door bellow (seal) for any rips or tears. It may be worn or loose and require replacement. This is a fairly simple repair that anyone can do with a little guidance. The following link explains step-by-step how to install a door bellow on a Whirlpool Duet front loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385210-replacing_door_bellow_kenmore_elite

Although the bellow may not have any physical tears, they can also become mishapened over time due to normal wear and not seal properly. You should have a good tight seal all the way around the door.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions.

NOTE: There is another method you may try as well. Although I do not prefer this next method because these washing machines are very heavy, an alternative way of replacing the door bellow is to remove the lower toe panel and tilt the washer back at a 45 degree angle instead of removing the washer front panel. If you use this method, make sure it rests against the wall and will not tip forward. This allows the wash tub to drop down and away from the front panel and gives you access to the the rear bellow clamp through the bottom. This can save you some time. Thanks to user DGBG for the helpful tip.

If you would like some helpful exploded view diagrams of your washer that you can reference, you can use any of these web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com

Just use your model number to begin your search criteria.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: These door seals do wear out and require replacement from time to time. However, overloading the washer to the point where items get caught in the door area can contribute to premature wear and tear.

Some additional items to look for that may cause leaks around the bellow:

1. Check the dispenser tubes that pentrate the door bellow. Sometimes they get pushed behind the rubber causing the water to trickle behind the bellow and leak. You will notice this on fill and rinse.

2. Check the rear bellow clamp that holds the seal to the front facing of the wash tub. The clamp can come loose, causing it not to seal properly.

Front load washer leak


This could be the rubber seal or the door lock. If the door lock is not pulling it tightly closed then it needs to be replaced. Check the seal really closely and make sure there are not cracks and it does not look deformed

How to replace the door bellows seal ?


this is general for all door seals - all are much the same.
disconnect from mains. take lid off
prise off the clamp holding seal to cabinet - usually a wire circle with a spring - and peel seal off cabinet. fold seal back inside drum
seal is held onto lip of tub with what is really a giant hose clip. undo this and the seal will come away from tub.
on new seal, lubricate the slot in the seal that goes onto the lip of drum with washing up fluid.
starting at top, enter the slot in seal on lip of tub. work your way round in both directions pushing slot onto lip. this is the hard part and it may take more than one attempt.
when seal is on all the way round, replace the clamp.
refix seal to cabinet (easy to do) and refit outer clamp.
test for leaks on rinse as water level is higher

Water leaks through bottom of Front door


The manufactures suggest putting washers on the back side of the hinge to draw the door tighter to the seal, otherwise you may have to replace the seal.
