SOURCE: Kenmore 44082 Front Load - Door Leak

you did fine several companies built kenmore for sears yours looks like a frigidaire on some models there is a problem with water collecting at the bottom of the door where the bellows or boot is and leak to correct this they came out with a new boot that has a channel at the bottom with three holes in it so the trapped water can drain back into the tub the parts kit for that is 5303937187 now on washers with rubber boots its recommend that you shut the door with a little force to make sure it closes tight against the boot sorry about the letters they came with the part number you might want to call kenmore parts to ask about the boot kit if i was there i could tell you but it looks like a frigidaire to me

SOURCE: whirlpool duet front loadsher leaks at the bottom of door. how do you replace the seal around the door

On this same machine, I need to replace the boot, but I also need to replace a broken baffle. Is this a very difficult task? The old one seems to have been snapped to the tub.

SOURCE: Kenmore HE2 Washing Machine Leaking

Have you looked behind the bellow under the folds to make sure there's no rips or tears? The bellow could appear okay on the outside, but still could have a tear somewhere out of plain view. I had this happen to me before.

The inner seal from the bellow to the tub could also be loose now. If you said a garment got stuck and the washer continued through the cycle, this could have loosen the seal where it attaches to the wash tub. You would need to tighten the band clamp around the facing of the tub if this is the case.

A good way in determining where the leak may be coming from is to remove the lower panel under the door. Start a wash cycle and watch to see where the water is coming out.

Now...if the tub seal is loose it may require some disassembly to get to. If you're going to go the route of disassembling the washer front, and have never replaced the bellow before, it probably wouldn't hurt to replace it anyway. My rationale: It's better to disassemble the washer once, rather than possibly having to do it all over again in the near future.

You can get a replacement bellow at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Door and Latch Parts" section for item number 1 (part #8540952). It only costs about $32.

If you need instructions on how to replace the bellow, just go to my profile and look under my "Tips and Tricks". There is a write I posted there giving step-by-step instructions. If you cannot find it, or have any further questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps answer some of your questions.

Problem turned out to be a leak from the top, not the bottom and was caused by debris blocking an overflow trap

A built in whirlpool dishwasher is leaking around the door seal, right side to be more specific. cleaned the seal, and along the bottom and it still leaks. Is there an adjustment that can be made to...


Hi,

There is no adjustment per say on this door or seal. If water spray directly on the door it can cause this, what I mean by that is if the spray arm, either the upper or lower is stuck and continually sprays in one place it can cause the water to leak by the door.

If the wrong type of detergent got in the dishwasher and there are suds or foam this could cause the dishwasher to leak a bit too.

If the dishwasher is not level or not mounted tight the door may not be hitting the seal right.

If all of these are not the problem I have heard of people putting a bit of silicone behind the gasket in the area it leaks, this will make the gasket a bit thicker to possibly help.

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.
