Theres a metal retaining ring that goes around the outside of the boot aka flexible gasket make sure that it is properly seated also u could have a pin hole in that gasket and have it leaking on your floor. You might want to just replace the boot rather then using a magnifying glass to look for the hole

How to clean the inside seal of a frididaire front load washer


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know how to clean the inside seal of your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF7000E. Below are instructions for cleaning the inside of your washer, including the seal:

• Remove items from the washer as soon as the cycle ends. Excess wrinkling, color transfer, and odors may develop in items left in the washer.
• Before cleaning the washer interior, unplug the electrical power cord to avoid electrical shock hazards.
• Dry around the washer door opening, flexible gasket, and door glass. These areas should always be clean to ensure a water tight seal.
• When extremely soiled items have been washed, a dirty residue may remain on the drum. Remove this by wiping the drum with a nonabrasive household cleanser. Rinse thoroughly with water.
• Periodically, wipe dry the bottom of the flexible gasket to remove lint and other debris.
• The plastic drum vanes may become stained from fabric dye. Clean these parts with a nonabrasive household cleanser. This prevents dye transfer to future loads.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Tip

Hidden Gunk in Your Dishwasher


<span><span>You may be surprised to know you probably have "gunk" around the door seal and on the inside bottom of the door of your dishwasher. Using an old toothbrush or a soft cloth and some <a href="/#">white vinegar</a> or a mild cleaning product, rub around the door gasket and the edge of the door. You'll probably be amazed at the residue that you remove. You may have to wipe and wash several times to get off all the accumulation.<br />The reason this debris accumulates is that the water and <a href="/#">soil</a> seep under the seal but are not rinsed away. Because we can't see the <a href="/#">soil</a>, it hardens and the next time the machine is run, more soil is deposited. Eventually, the soil begins to spoil and an unpleasant odor develops. </span></span><br /> <span><span>Another trick is to GENTLY rub just under the gasket with a wooden toothpick. This will remove debris lodged under the gasket.</span></span><br /> <span><span>Cleaning the bottom and edges of the door will help to prevent unpleasant odors coming from your dishwasher.</span></span>

How to clean my jen air built in oven


For basic cleaning, use a non-abrasive cleanser or detergent and water. Clean the oven frame, oven door outside of the gasket and the gap in the gasket. (Don't clean the gasket.) With a damp sponge (with detergent if needed), wipe up any spills in the oven. (Sugary or acidic spillovers could damage the porcelain.) Wipe up any grease that spilled in the oven. Wipe the control panel with a damp cloth then dry. Clean the oven door with detergent and water. Clean the window or glass with detergent and water or glass cleaner. Use care to keep the water from seeping behind the window.

Next if you want to do a self-cleaning cycle. Remove the oven racks, the broiler pan and any other pans or items that are in the oven. Close the oven door. Press the Clean pad and then press Autoset(0) button to get the length of time to run the cleaning cycle. Press 2 or 4 to shorten or lengthen the cleaning cycle. After 5 seconds the door will lock and the cleaning cycle will begin. The door will remain locked until after the oven cools down (at least an hour after the cycle ends). Wipe up any white ash after the oven door unlocks. If you want the cleaning cycle to be delayed, press the Stop pad within 5 seconds of setting the length of the cleaning cycle. Use the number pads to set the time that you want the oven to end the cleaning cycle. (Make sure that it is later in the day with sufficient time to run the cleaning cycle.)

Water leaking onto floor lower left side


Hi,

Move the refrigerator out from the wall and look for the location of the leak.

Step 2
Check the side panels and the seals around the door for beads of "sweat." This could indicate a condensation problem.

Step 3
Check the floor. A puddle there could indicate a missing or cracked drip pan, or a leak in the water line that feeds your ice maker.

Step 4
Check for water seeping from the front of the freezer or the refrigerator. This could indicate your defrost drain is plugged or your ice maker is leaking.

Fixing a condensation problem
Step 1
Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely.

Step 2
Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets (see How to Fix a Refrigerator That Cools Poorly).

Step 3
If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls

Hope this helpout....

MOISTURE AND HEAT ESCAPE FROM DOOR SIDES CAUSING PROBLEMS WITH ADJOINING CABINET DOORS. WHAT IS CAUSING THE CONDENSATION / MOISYURE LEAK?


Unfortunately, dishwasher generate a lot of heat and water vapor. Some manufactures are now including a pressure sensitive mylar / aluminum strip to be attached above the door under the counter to prevent water vapor and or heat damage to wood or composition wood counter tops. However if water vapor is seeping out from the side of the door and causing damage to the adjacent cabinets woodwaork, the dishwasher door gasket may be faulty. Since this might be the problem, it would appear that your dishwasher is used a lot or getting old. New gasket is about $20. If the door closes and there appears to be a lot of play in the closed door,the latch may be in need of adjusting if possible. That is, even thought closed and operational, the seal is not tight and the dishwasher is running without having a tight seal on the sides. If you have a stone counter top, any water vapor / heat escaping from the top would not be apparent since stone is not damaged by the heat or water vapor, but the adjacent wood cabinets are.

KitchenAid Dishwasher Leaking from under Door


I had a similar problem with a KUDM25SHWH1 dishwasher. Rubber seal looked fine. I found an incredible tip on another fixi it site. One possible problem iss the pump cover screws may have worked loose and is squirting water directly on the door seal. Man that was it! I saw a couple of looses screws and a small portion of the pump cover gasket showing. I loosened the pump top, reset the gasket tightened it all down...no leaks! The pump I refer to is located directly below the spray arm inside the washer. Easy to get to. Another tip was to look for a split sspray arrm that may spray water directly into the door seal.
