    I mentioned that there was wear on the under side of the door.So I put a bead of chalking along the wear areas.My wife did a load of laundry and no signs of leaking.The chaulking is starting to peel away any ideas of some other products to use.

    Same machine different problem. We are getting a good puddle of water from the bottom of the machine. Can't pinpoint where the water is coming from. Lately this machine is starting to have a lot of issues. We're trying to do all we can before having to replace it.

Are you sure it is leaking from the boot seal? The water could be leaking from the top or front of the washer and running down along the door. Pull the top off and watch the machine while it fills. Use a torch for better viewing.

Water is leaking from the bottom of my washer, it is maytag neptune ,front loading washer


Check the door boot (typically grey rubber bellows looking ring around the door opening that keeps the water in the tub from leaking) for cuts.

Black mold on washer door seal


this is a very common problem with the neptune washers.
use a javex and hot water solution and scrub the rubber boot.
you should also do an acid wash. (hot wash with bleach, and no clothes) if there is mold on the boot it is inside the washer as well.

There is a way to prevent this. when the washer is not in use, hang a small towl on the washer door, and do not close the door.
this will allow for air movement in the washer

Maytag front loader washing machine. Mould


How old is the washer? Did you try straight bleach on a towel and placed over the "mold" spot for about 5 minutes, be sure to wear gloves. Then scrub with a small brush being careful not to splatter bleach on yourself and rinse well. May need to replace the seal. I always leave the door cracked open after every use to "dry" out the inside and the boot. I also leave the drawer pulled out when not in use for that area to dry out as well. I have never had mold on the door seal of my Neptune washers, only the water holes above the dispenser drawer.

Leaks


Possible the leak comes from under the tub. Remove the wall plug & take off the rear panel. Check to see if the hose from the under the tub is secure, it could be the grip clip below the hose has come off. This is where it connects to the pump section. You need a grip plier or something to get it back on securely. If this is not the case take a good look to see where the leak comes from.

Next is the door gasket, maybe a tear.
