If, I don't know of any online manuals, maybe one of the other cats do. Check out the link below. Your washer is the same as the HE3, same instructions. Only difference is that on the right side of the panel inside there might be a plastic clip when removing the control panel. Click on the link.

Front seal inside replacing


If you are referring to the gray rubber door seal (called the bellow), the following link explains step-by-step how to change the door bellow on a Whirlpool Duet series front loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

I have found these sites to be reputable and provide great service. Prices differ between them, so shop and compare. The first three sites I've listed have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
NOTE: The manufacturer recommends that you leave the door OPEN between washes to prevent constant pressure on the door seal which can stretch it out of shape over time. It is also beneficial to allow the wash tub to air out to prevent mold and mildew from forming and will also minimize any odors that may develop. Overloading the washer can also contribute to the premature wear and tear on the bellow which can lead to rips, tears and possible dislodging from the bellow clamp seals. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations for loading in your owner's manual.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. If the link does not take you directly to the instructions I provided, copy and paste the link to your web browser. I hope you find this information helpful.

Just wondering can the rubber seal be changed on my Whirlpool duet front load washer? The seal around the tub of my machine has a small rip in it and now the water flows out when I am washing my clothes.


yes they can, the bellow seal is about $100 and take care when removing the outer tub spring and the front seal spring so you don't kink these or the new seal will leak around the edges

The door is leaking when the washer is in use


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 Kenmore Elite front loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load

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.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites have excellent exploded view parts illustrations you can use for part location and assembly. 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.
