The bellow or gasket may need to be replaced. this is a common problem with front loaders as the bellow can be pierced by anything that may be in or even on your clothes. I would visually inspect every inch of the front bellow to see if there is a TEAR or PIN HOLE.

New bellows $150 plus fitting so I use a Bike repair it and used the glue to glue a piece of bicycle tube to the inside of the seal to cover the chip by 1 cm either side and trimmed to the same height as the seal lip.
I then placed a little bathroom sanitized silicon sealant over the repair within the chip, wet down with soapy water on the door glass in the chip area and shut the door. Carefully wipe of any excess with wet finger and repeat. Open the door and let it all cure.

Cold water leaks into tub when machine is off


Try to identify roughly the area the leak is coming from. This will eleminate some of the following

Hose Connections
Check the rubber washers or replace if the hoses are leaking at the WATER INLET valve

Door Seal
This is a common place for leaks. Carefully check by partially pulling seal inside out and check for punctures, pens, pencils... Additionaly if the door is not closing properly it may need a door adjustment. This can easily be done by loosening the hinge bolts on the front panel, adjusting and retighten. The seal is also known to get lightly snagged by zippers or rub by heavy items when close are being removed. This tends to cause the seal to get damaged at the six o'clock position. This is sometimes hardly noticeable but if it is leaking from the bottom of the door replace door seal.

Water Inlet Valve
If the hose connections are good to the water inlet valve check that water is not leaking from the valve itself it is replace inlet water valve

Drain Pump
Check the drain pump housing and all hose connections. The drain pump is behind the lower panel, behind the back panel, and sometimes removal of the front panel. Hoses can be tightened. If hoses or pump housing is leaking replace pump .

Outer Drum
The outer drum is 2 halves bolted together some washers have a seal between others do not. If the washer is leaking between the seems disassembly of the washer will be necessary. The top panel, console, front panel, door seal, struts. 9696d86e-1b8b-4b2e-af2c-6f3a3ae921dc.jpg

Hi. My dishmaid dw12 sometimes leakes water. ive checked the water inlet and draing and its not that. what could it be


If the water is appearing at the front of the dishwasher during use, it's most likely that one of the door seals needs replacing.

There is a white panel, about 4 inches high, below the door. Stand to the side of the washer, open the door about half-way, and have a feel about on top of that lower panel. If it's wet, it's almost certain one of the seals is perished - usually the bottom door seal. This seal isn't visible like the goal-post seal that runs around the sides and top.

Also, food waste can build up on or under the seals and cause leaks.

If the water is appearing from the back or under the washer, then further investigation is needed and you may need an enginner. It's hard to be definite as you haven't been very specific about where and when the leak occurs.

Front door is leaking..I think there is gunk under the grey seal..can that be taken off and cleaned or anything?


If the door glass and the door seal are making proper contact there should not be a problem..The smallest gap, split or tear will let water out. A leaking door seal usually needs to be replaced by a tech....Nomess

Washer is leaking in front


If the leak leaves a trail on the outer cabinet of the washer, your problem is the ring seal on the door.
If the leak is flowing from under the machine in the front, it will either be your silicon water apron or your water pump. It usually is not the pump, since the apron tends to age faster than all other parts. All 3 parts are replaceable but require some skill to do if you have no experience. The door seal is easier than the other 2 since it is right where you can get to it.
Replacement parts are available at searspartsdirect or 1stsource parts.

I have front loader MFW9700 Maytag washer. Water


Check the door seal for tears and the drain boot from tub to drain boot for anything that might have put a hole in like a piece of metal from an under wire bra which front loads will spin so fast that the wires come out of the bras.

Water leaking bottom front door


Check out the front seal carefully for a replacement. Due to the flexibility of the seal, it is not to easy to spot a tear mark, Under pressure of an operation load, a small tear will allow water leaking through, so there is a leak. It is very common that a hard sharp object left inside clothing and during washing cycle, it makes its way to the seal and cause a damage. Hope this can help.

Slight leak


It dpends. see if you can see any staining on front of cabinet under the door , if you can then yes it will mean new seal.
Another source of water could be water from the dispenser trickling down the front of the m/c.
Another possibility is that you have a leak from under the front of the washer. Put a piece of newspaper under the front of the washer, this should enable you to pinpoint the source of the leak.
Hope this helps
