Hey Guys or Gals
The Whirlpool Duet Washer and why it Leak's. 1) Make sure the Boot(which is the black thing that hook's to your tub and your door) And the ring around it, is tight.Now this Ring,is a Metal Band that keeps the boot on the tub Tight .You can tighten it or loosen it..ifs its loose, then it will leak...Then, there's a Ring around the door as well, Both of these rings are hard to see..so make sure, your really looking good. Now what most people don't thing about is the Main Inlet Tube.On page 18 in the manual.on picture 3.5 it show this source of water that comes into the tub.,this Main Inlet Tube that connect to the Dispenser Assembly,will come loose and will Drip or at times Leak bad,To be able to understand where this is located. First 1) take of the top cover of the washer, 2) take off the front part that hold the door on.That means when you look at your Manual look to pages 31,32,33 and this will tell you how to take off the front of the washer,It's not that hard, to take off,just take your time..and have an extra pair of hands helping you, so it easier and faster.But once you get the front of the waster off,and yes that counts the Electronic display header,That's that button you push to run the washer,,it will pop off after you take a couple of screws out ,after you take the top of the was off..you see them. but back to the MAIN TUBE INLET, this will loosen and water will leak from this now when you replace the boot on this the tube will come loose when trying to put your ring around the boot,you cant tell that its loose becaue you cant see if after installing the boot,i know this dont make any since,but im sure it will if your start to tear it apart..and taking these steps to fix the leak. just make sure that you track the leak,to make sure that this is it...just make sure you take the steps to repair it ..if that means order a new piece then do it. But These Step Will Save you Lots of Time & Money if your Going to play someone to fix it...Here's the Link to the Manual,Just download it and go to the pages i put down ..Might have to copy and paste the address

open the door and check between the drum and door frame. There is a large rubber bladder completely surrounding the drum. Pushing the drum further back into the machine will let you see the entire thing and unfold it. These often get small laundry like socks stuck there as well as sharp objects like nails. You may have a tear in it which will leak like that. Replacement parts run about $70.00.

Your water pump is attached to the motor and is probably the source of your water leak.
Replace the pump.
Use the attached video to show how to access the cabinet and pump.

If the washer is leaking around the door area, more than likely the bellow (rubber seal) is ripped or torn. If you pull back the rubber folds in the bellow and inspect, you may find a rip or tear causing your leak.
Another cause can be the rear bellow clamp (clamp that is affixed to the front of the wash tub) can come loose causing a leak between the bellow and tub. All you may have to do is tighten the clamp if this is the case.
The dispenser tube on the left hand side of the door, if not seated through the rubber correctly, can also leak during the fill or rinse cycles. The tube should be inserted through the rubber in the bellow to the flange on the tube. If not, water can fill behind the rubber and drip into the bottom washer casing.
The following link explains how to access and/or replace the the door bellow on a Whirpool Duet:
Searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com and repairclinic.com carry the bellow. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best deal.
If you have any questions, or require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you. NOTE: The bellow can also become mishapened over time after frequent use. This can also cause leaks around the door. Look to make sure the bellow is sealing around the door glass. If not, it should also be repalced.
