The way to replace it is you undo seal from front which might be a thin spring clamp behind the lip of the door seal it will be metal undo your lid look down the front of your washer to see the inside of the back of your door seal it will either be another bigger spring clamp or a screw clamp undo door seal will pullout replace backwards to how youve undone m8

Wire came out of front plastic gray circular piece and washer leaked water everywhere


Sounds like some article of clothing got between the door glass and door boot and pulled the rubber door boot away from the front of the washer. Check and make sure the rubber boot is not torn. If it is ok you should be able to slip the lip of the door boot back onto the front of the washer, make sure you get it in the grove. Then put the wire retainer back around the boot, you may need an extra hand or two to hold it and stretch the spring back on. Hope this helps

My machine gushes water out when it spins Sometimesfrom the loading drawer and sometimes from the front door.


Hi, if the washer is overfilling this could happen. This would involve a pressure switch. Also, the boot inside the door could be torn at the bottom. Does it leak in the wash cycle. Inspect the boot by opening the door, pull the rubber back and use a flashlight to inspect it.

I have LG WD -1050F Intellowasher 7kg front load washer, while operating time getting water leakage under front door. need solution.


Hi,

The problem is due to the rubber boot is been torn that is causing you the leak. You have to check the rubber boot for leaks by removing the clamp assembly that secures the rubber boot to the outer lip of the door opening. Peel off the rubber boot then inspect it for any holes where it may be leaking. The rubber boot in your washer can be accessed only when you remove the front panel. This requires the removal first of the top panel then the console. Also check your inlet hoses on the outside of machine, also check the connections inside the panel in back.


Thank you !!

My whirlpool duet front load washer door leaks. How do I get a replacement seal for the door?


YOU NEED A NEW BOOT ON THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR. WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR DOOR THERE SHOULD BE A GRAY RUBBERY RING. AS A MATTER OF FACT, IF YOU MOVE THAT RING AND PUT YOUR FINGERS IN IT YOU WILL PROBABLY FIND A MISSING SOCK OR TWO! THAT RING HAS TORN AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED.

A piece of fabric got caught in the seal and it it slightly torn and the seal is warped. A round wire with a spring fell out and the door will not close.


you will have to replace the boot glove as this is what i think you mean,the part were the door fits into,if there is a rip in this rubber boot then water will leak through teribly,the round wire you refer to is the wire that goes around the boot to hold this securely to the washer preventing it from leaking,hope this helps,rgrds,paul
