The rubber liner (called a "bellow") can be purchased for less than $100. If you wish to install yourself, the following link explains:

If the bellow isn't damaged, you can still use the link provided to simply re-install it. If the outer bellow clamp (wire hoop with a spring) is damaged it can also be purchased for about $20 or less. Searspartsdirect.com or appliancepartspros.com offer the best prices with exploded view diagrams of your washer. Just use your model number (located along the door opening) for your search criteria.

So, the choice is yours. Spend about $100 (if required) and repair this yourself. Or, spend $$$ for a new washer. I own a model like yours and I know it wasn't cheap. If the only think wrong with the washer is the door bellow, I think this just may be worth the time and effort to repair.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Tub seal has rip therefore washer is leaking.


Its pretty comlicated requires dissasembly of the front of the washer. A good tech can do in 1 hour. You may want to pay for it rather than spending all day and possibly damaging something. Let me know if you need further assistance.
