Question about Washing Machines
Last night, I washed some clothes with two pillows. Looks like the pillows were rubbing against the seal? (the plastic thing next to the door) and now that seal has a hole. It is not big but I don´t want to wash until know if that´s really bad (maybe water can enter there). Also, I think because of this the washer was doing a really loud noise almost at the end of the cycle. Can I replace that part? What´s the name of this part? Or something really serious is going on with the machine and maybe I need to start thinking in another one?
In case the hole is in the plastic part and not in the rubber,you can disregard it. The plastic part called- main tub cover. Regarding the loud noise, to my opinion the reason for it was an overloaded machine. Run a new washing cycle (with clothes) and see if it will work properly. Let me know if you will need for any further assistance. Good luck!

Tips for a great answer:
Pour 2/3 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach compartment of the dispenser drawer of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer.
Run your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer on the "Clean Washer" setting. Press "Start" to start the cycle.
Leave the door open once the cycle is complete to allow the inside of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer to ventilate and air dry.
Look closely at the gray seal of the Maytag Neptune front-loading washer's door opening. This seal can have a buildup of debris or detergent residue.
Spray the seal with an all-purpose appliance cleaner and scrub away any debris or residue with a cloth or scrubbing pad. Dry with a clean cloth.
Remove the soap dispenser drawer. Press the release lever and lift it out to clean.
Take out the inserts and rinse them and the drawer thoroughly.
Wash with a mild soap and cloth to remove any residue. Dry thoroughly before replacing.
