SOURCE: HE2 Plus Front Loader is leaking out of the door.

a little patience is needed to replace this, but not terrible hard, youll need to remove the spring clamp holding it to the front panel(peeling back from just at the face youll see it will pop right off, then after that s removed there is another clamp in about hte 2 o;clock position that also needs to be removed, either a phillips, or a 9/32 socket, the new gasket will need to be stretched back over the inner tub rim andtightened( this will take patience as there is not a lot of hand room, and just like changing a bicycle tire as a kid , the rubber will have a tendency to "pop" of the rim until its fully on.

The solution? Plain old bleach.
Scrub rubber seal on door. Run the bleach through the machine once a month to keep clean.

Keep door open after each wash to ensure that it dries out properly.

SOURCE: GE Profile front loader washing machine is leaking

Hello, this is usually the door seal, most machine incorporate a one piece combined door seal and outer drum seal(often just called a DOOR GASKET), the door seal are put in on the front panel first in the factory, then the drum assembly is put in and the seal pushed over the outer drum. This means a lot of stripping down has to be done just to replace the drum to the door seal.
Thanks

Leaks from bottom but only when i put a small load in


If this is a Whirlpool FRONT LOADER you need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door to inspect the cabinet interior for the source of your leak. The following link explains:

The most common source of leaks on a front loader is the rubber door bellow. The bellow can develop cracks, rips or tears with age and needs to replaced. The following link explains how:

Leaking water from a whirlpool AWM - 293 front loader


I too have this model machine. The leak in my case traced to the fill up hose that attaches to the drum. The seal at this point seems to be a weak point and requires either a replacement that will only last another couple of years or you could try what I did.

I removed the rubber hose from the drum. Dried and cleaned it thoroughly. placed a fair bit of sealant (silcone) on both parts and reassembled and let sit for a couple of days till it cured. This will need to be redone in about 3 years (that is my average- have owned it for 10years).

Water leaking from the door and front panel of my Duet washer


Check the rubber door seal, sounds like its split which is common after 2-3 years use.
You can find the general area of the leak by placing dry newspaper on a dry floor beneath the machine.

Kenmore 3.5 frnt loader always has inches of H20 in rubber gasket


does your model start with 417? if so then there is a new door gasket that will help with water left in the boot.
if you have 110, then there is no new gasket/ boot...
you need to clean the drain pump sump screen.
either unit will have a clean out screen that is a removable cover on the front of the pump and it allows you to unscrew the sump filter and clean it out.

Washer is leaking


Check the rubber bellow (gasket) around the door. This is the symptom of a door gasket that it starting to leak. Pull the rubber folds back and check the area where the gasket attaches to the wash tub. You may have a crack or tear. If the gasket is worn please replay back to this post and I can give you advice on how to replace it and where to get a replacement gasket.
