If your front load washer is leaking, the following link explains how to access the interior cabinet and what to look for:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

In the majority of cases, leaks on front loaders are caused by a worn or loose door bellow. This is the gray rubber seal around the door opening. If the bellow has any rips or tears it must be replaced. The following link explains how to replace one (if required):

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load

Replacment parts (if required) can be purchased on line at any of the following websites:

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

These sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list also offer helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you with properly identifying and locating parts.

Read through the link provided and inspect the washer cabinet thoroughly. It may help to add some water to the drum.

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

NOTE: Overloading the washer can cause premature wear on the door bellow. In addition, using the wrong type of detergent (i.e., other than HE), or using the wrong concentration of soap can cause premature wear to the pump seals.

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.

FRONT DOOR OF WASHER LEAKING


Hello. W/D here.

It's actually pretty easy to get it back on when you know the trick.

Since it has leaked on you, you may want to remove the seal off of the rim closest to the door and clean the rim and the sealing surface. The seal has a molded lip that fits on to a raised formed rim, and it gets pressed on snugly before the ring and spring are added. You can seat the seal by pressing on it all the way around with the palms of your hands.
To install the ring:
Start the ring 180 degrees from the spring, placing it in the groove behind the seal face. (You want to make sure that the seal is pressed back into place first). Work the ring on around the seal, until you get to mostly just the spring remaining. Now lever the spring over the lip and into the groove, using a small screwdriver, being careful not to damage the seal with the screwdriver.

Best regards, --W/D--

Water Leak from the Front Door of our Maytag Epic MFW9700S


The water leaking is most likely the gasket. It may have a little rip or something making it not seal. Im not sure about Maytag but on our GE we had to slide the the top back to remove some screws then (I believe to was for the control panel) Then we removed screws for the door and the front of the washer. When that was done you have to remove a round clamp that holds the gasket on. Then replace the gasket.

My suggestion is to have a appliance repair come and do it. Its a pain to do, at least it was for me.
