This is common as the door bellow wears out with age. You need to replace it to stop the washer from continued leaking. The following link explains how:

Replacement seals can be purchased on line at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The bellow should be listed under the "Door Parts" section. Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare.

This is not a difficult repair if you read and follow the steps provided. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Over loading the washer can contribute to premature wear on the bellow. Follow the manufacturers recommended guidance for proper loading to avoid ripping or tearing the seal.

Whirlpool front loader model ghw9100lwi I just replaced my pump, but I unknowingly did it wrong and am hoping a simple plumbing solution will fix it. I purchased a new pump that was attached to all the...


Take the whole pump out, disconnecting the hoses as well. Split the pump, check the faces are not damaged and apply either the epoxy (if you think you will never need to split it again), silicone, or head gasket sealant. Screw back together evenly a few turn at a time. It may also be that the older rear of the unit is made by a different company than the new pump and the moldings are fractionally different. Use the front and back of the new pump, don't mix old and new.

Replace the bellow in my front loader whirlpool washing machine


Hello. You don't need any special tools to do this. Feel around the edge of the bellows seal until you find a spring in the groove behind the face of the seal. Using a small screwdriver, lever it over the edge of the seal, and slowly work the ring over the seal face. Peel the seal off of the mounting flange, and roll it inside the drum. Remove the front of the washer, and remove the spring on the inner part of the seal. Replace the seal, making sure that it is oriented in the same manner as the one you took off. Reassemble in the reverse order. There are a number of very good videos on YouTube. Type in "washing machine repair" and you'll find different chapters in what amounts to a series on repair.....good stuff.
Hopes this is helpful to you. Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate this carefully hand crafted answer! Thanx!

A piece of clothing got hung up in the seal of our front loader washing machine. Now it leaks when in use and a round spring has come out from behind the seal.


you will need a new seal and the spring is what helps to balance the front of the drum , you will need to put it back on, trace down where it belongs,, should be a prong on the machine and another on the drum casing,

Whirlpool door pin location


No, unfortunately the door latch assy. comes as a complete unit. Part# 8182634. This # is for the entire door latch mechanism, not just the pin and lists for ~$45.00. Easy repair... open the door. At the 6 o'clock position of the door seal, begin removing the seal clamp with a small screwdriver by inserting it between the spring and the seal. Then peel the seal back (at the 3 o'clock position) to gain access to the latch assy. Remove the 3 screws holding the latch in place and pull gently out. Remove the wire harness. Install the new latch and rebuild. (make sure you position the seal clamp the same way it came off... the spring at the 6 o'clock position.) Install time= ~15 minutes. Job done! and well worth the 50 bucks!
