AWM 8143 front loader- rubber door needs to be replaced

I have AWM 8143 model front loader. I accidentally closed the door with a small part of the clothe in the machine that's why the front rubber was tore. because of that the water is leaking when I use it again. Is the rubber inside the door replaceable? And what exactly do you call that part so i can search on the net. Thanks

Yes,it is called a bellow.If the tear is small enough and just on the front rim of the seal try gluing it with super glue,it will get you by till you can get it replaced.

Whirlpool AWM 8143 - Starts a cycle and then starts flashing open door light and won't go further. Door is shut properly. Tried turning it off at the power and back on to no avail.


This is either a problem with the door lock itself or most probably a motor failiure as the door open light also indicates some kind of motor problem. If your appliance is 4/5 years and above then you will most likely need to change the set of carbon brushes on the motor and this will solve your problem

Leaking water from a whirlpool AWM - 293 front loader


I too have this model machine. The leak in my case traced to the fill up hose that attaches to the drum. The seal at this point seems to be a weak point and requires either a replacement that will only last another couple of years or you could try what I did.

I removed the rubber hose from the drum. Dried and cleaned it thoroughly. placed a fair bit of sealant (silcone) on both parts and reassembled and let sit for a couple of days till it cured. This will need to be redone in about 3 years (that is my average- have owned it for 10years).

Whirlpool washine machine #AWM 3082 - door wont open


Try to unplug the unit for five minutes, then plug back in. Try to start a load, as soon as the door locks agian, hit cancel. That will sometimes let you get back in. Im not sure if this is a top loader or front loader, but there is a way (if its a front loader) to remove the bottom front kick plate, then you have to reach up the inside to the door latch assm, on the bottom of that is a small round handle, pull it straight down, and the door will unlock. If its a top loader (i.e. Cabrio, Oasis, Etc), you can open the top only by unclipping the top from the base. You can do this by putting a putty knife in between the top and cabinet, then finding the clips, pushing them in and lfting, you can get your stuff out that way.
