SOURCE: LG WD-1021-WF Front Loader Washing Mashing

Replacing the door seal is not an easy task.  You will need to get 2 special tools from LG to make it as easy as possible.  The spring loaded clamps are very hard to put on because the springs are so strong.  Once you get the special tools, remove the front clamp off the door seal.  Pull the seal off the lip to gain access to inner seal clamp.  Remove the inner clamp and pull off the rubber door seal.  Just reverse the procedure when reinstalling the new seal.

SOURCE: sour smell coming from inside whirlpool duet front loader

Residual water sits inside the wash tub under the stainless steel basket and in the drain lines & drain pump. This is normal. If you are in the habit of using very few hot water cycles and do not leave the washer door open when not in use, bacteria, mold and mildew can build up and cause the sour smell you are experiencing. The following link provides some good info on how to prevent these odors:

You may also want to remove the drain pump reservoir and check to see if you have anything caught. Sometimes debris can build up in the drain pump and cause odors. The following link explains how to check the drain pump:

I personally own a front loader such as yours and have never had a problem with odors by following this simple advice. Occasionally run a sanitary cycle with nothing but bleach in the water. For washers with no santitary cycle, run it on the hottest setting you have. Sorry...front loaders require a bit more TLC than conventional top loaders. I hope this helps you. If you have questions, please let me know.

The lint will be in a removable filter and as for cleaning the rubber seal the black grime will most likely be mould. Try a good mould remover.

My inglis front loader washer is leaking at bottom of the door....inside rubber area near leak feels gummy....any advice??


Scrub the glass on your door and the rubber boot. This works in almost every case. The washer gets a build up of scum on these parts and doesn,t allow a tight seal. In rare instances you have to replace the rubber boot. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

The door leaks on my whirlpool front load model wfw8300sw03, looks like the door isnt sealing tightly, if I push on the door it stops lealing, any ideas?


you might have a bent door hinge, but most likely you have a worn door boot. its the grey rubber thing that the glass seals to.
try to lift up on the door to get the hinges back into place and if that doesnt work then you might need to replace the door boot.
look at the edge of the boot where the glass hits it. the glass must seal to the rubber and if the rubber is worn or torn then it wont seal.
not an easy piece to replace but it can be done. i wouldnt recommend trying it first as you will find it very tight to get your hands into and the clamps are hard to figure out as well.
