The rubber ring is called the "bellow". The following link explains the steps necessary to install one:

Make sure you inspect the bellow to ensure it has no leaks or tears, first. Re-installing a damaged bellow will only result in a leaky washer.

If its only the front bellow clamp that needs to be re-installed, skip down to step 12. If the rear clamp has come loose where it attaches to the front of the wash tub, then you will have to follow all the steps that require you to remove the front panel. It may sound intimidating, but its an easy repair if you follow the steps provided.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

On my whirlpool duet washer the little pin in the door (black) that pushes in when shut broke and now my washer wont kick on


Is this pin on the door or the frame? If the frame then you need a new door lock assembly that you replace by peeling back the rubber tub bellow after removing retainer spring.

The rubber piece in the front of the washer is pulled up and the metal large ring is not in place not sure how it goes back on


If you are referring to the wire hoop retaining clamp that holds the door bellow (rubber gasket) in place, it installs the following way:

1. Install the bellow over the frame of the door opening and ensure its seated and snug all the way around the perimeter.

2. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop into the rubber groove of the bellow that is located around perimeter of the door frame. Make sure to wire spring points towards the 6 o'clock position.

3. As you work your way around the door frame to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, you will need to maintain some constant downward pressure while pulling the spring apart in order to get it to snap into place.

It would be helpful to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this as it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.

The wire hoop is known as the front door bellow clamp.

If you have any problems, or further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Bought new rubber seal for whirlpool but no instructions how to fit.has 2 wire rings front and back of seal so how do you fit them around the new seal. do you work from the back of rubber seal first ie...


this is why we are paid to do the tricky stuff. Ok, remove the lid then open the door. look for the front pring loaded wire then remove. Pull front of seal off ridge then bend it back into the tub so it allows you to work easier. you will now see a second large ring holding the other end of the seat to the tub. remove it then pull the faulty seal out. Follow same proceedure putting it back. careful not to tear boot as it is silicon.

Washer clunking


Look just inside the door. Between the door and the tub. Feel around behind the rubber boot that seals the tub to the door. See if you find a bic lighter, pocket knife or something like this.

Whirlpool duet washer leaking water


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:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385210-replacing_door_bellow_kenmore_elite

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.

Gasket came loose and rapped around laundry-tub seems loose


if your metal ring (clamp) came off it is most likely due to you shocks or the spring at the top are worn out and need to be replaced. this will happen more often if the cycles are off balance or the washer is over loaded

Whirlpool Duet washer leaking during clean washer cycle


the highest water fill cycle for your waher is the clean cycle.it will fill up with 2x the normal amount of water in this cycle than any other.look for a cut or wrinkle in your door boot(grey rubber outer ring that seals between door and boot)if you find one,only fix would be to replace door boot.also clean inner door glass that comes in contact with door boot ring,any hard water build up or sediment(dog,cat or human hair)will break the seal and allow it to leak.good luck
