Another method involves removing the washer top panel and working down through the top of the washer. The method I have described, offers the best open access, however. If you have questions along the way, please let me know. I hope you find this informaiton helpful.

Leak/boot tear in whirlpool duet washer


The front door seal is referred to as the "bellow". They will wear out with age and may become mishapened from repeated pressure from the door being closed. Over time the bellow can stretch or develop rips and tears and begin to leak. If the bellow is leaking, or no longer providing a good seal, it must be replaced. This will cause water to puddle under the front of the washer and inside the cabinet. The following link explains how to access and replace one:

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


Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

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

All these sites are reputable and have great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If the model number is correct, the part number is 8182119.

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

NOTE: If you leave the door OPEN between washes this will help 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. In addition, overloading the washer can contribute to 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.

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

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.
