The rubber seal (or bellow) wears with age and will eventually deteriorate over time. Excessive use of detergent, and/or use of the wrong detergent (detergent that is not HE) can contribute to rubber breakdown too. Regular detergent is formulated for washers that use a wash tub with a capacity of 35 gallons. HE detergent is formulated for High Efficiency washers that only use 5 to 7 gallons of water. So, if you place regular detergent in an HE washer, you are (in affect) putting a higher concentration of soap in your washer. This higher concentration of soap can act as a corrosive to rubber and become permeated in your clothing as it does not rinse completely. This can lead to skin irritations as well. It is important that if you are not using HE detergent that you do so in the future to prevent premature breakdown of the rubber seals of the washer and pump. This will also void most manufacturer warranties if it determined you are using improper detergent. Now...I'm not trying to accuse you of abusing your appliance and not trying to lecture you. I'm merely putting this information out, because some people simply do not know. Overloading the washer is another contributor to excessive wear on the bellow as well as not keeping the bellow cleaned properly. Mold and mildew can contribute to the break down of rubber. The following link can give some advice on proper care of the door bellow:

This could be the rubber seal or the door lock. If the door lock is not pulling it tightly closed then it needs to be replaced. Check the seal really closely and make sure there are not cracks and it does not look deformed
