If you are referring to the gray rubber door seal (called the bellow), the following link explains step-by-step how to change the door bellow on a Whirlpool Duet series front loader:

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

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

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

I have found these sites to be reputable and provide great service. Prices differ between them, so shop and compare. The first three sites I've listed have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
NOTE: The manufacturer recommends that you leave the door OPEN between washes to prevent constant pressure on the door seal which can stretch it out of shape over time. It is also beneficial to allow the wash tub to air out to prevent mold and mildew from forming and will also minimize any odors that may develop. Overloading the washer can also contribute to the premature wear and tear on the bellow which can lead to rips, tears and possible dislodging from the bellow clamp seals. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations for loading in your owner's manual.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. If the link does not take you directly to the instructions I provided, copy and paste the link to your web browser. I hope you find this information helpful.

I recently purchased a home which this washer was included. It has a moldy odor. I cleaned it out under rubber ring but seems to keep coming back. What can I do?


The door seal will need to be replaced. Once the mold sets in deep it will keep reappearing every couple weeks or so. Here is a link that will help with the door seal. It's a different model but a similar procedure would be used. Replacing a door seal

Hi, can u show me how to clean my washer to get rid of that moldy smell. there's also mold around the rubber ring around the opening and it feels slimy. Can u please help


First you should reach deep into the front door seal and run your fingers around. There is probably slime in there. You will need to thoroughly clean this with a bleach water mix about 50-50. You might need to pull the seal almost inside out to get in there good. If after scrubbing you still have black in the rubber the mold will come right back, in that case you will need to replace the seal. They are not to hard to replace but a little tricky. Here is a link that should help if you need to replace the seal or if the wire ring pops off when cleaning. Now if all cleans up well or you replaced it be sure to wipe out the seal after each use (deep in there) and /or leave the door open.

If the seal is clean and no mold present and it still smells then you likely have a clogged drain pump filter or pump. Here is a link that should help cleaning a drain pump or try this one for cleaning a ge drain pump filter and this one for cleaning/replacing a Kenmore drain pump

Mildew/moldy seal


This moldy look could also be due to alot of 40 degree or less washing temperatures where the bacteria cannot be killed therefore a once a month maintenance wash at max temp would help solve this.

Water won't completely drain from tub. Door seal is very moldy.


Had a simular problem. In my unit the water was not visible in the drum but you could hear it when you turned the drum by hand.  The answer as told to me by the Maytag repair man:  The machine is designed to hold the water after the cycle is complete.  As he was replacing the boot seal he suggested to just leave the door open so the seal will dry out and not mold.  This has been working for the past several years.  No mold has appeared on the new boot seal.  

From another source I read that the water is left in the machine for balance.

Peace BeeSuit,

Happy to be of assistance,


You asked:
Your, AEG 6200 Digitronic washing machine is leaking from the front door seal down the front and onto the floor.
Is this a common problem and can it be fixed?
- for example by replacing the opening rubber seal?

Yes I believe that replacing the rubber seal is usually the answer.

How old is the unit? And is the washer working well other wise?
Is it draining and not smelling like mold in side?
Some times in an old machine the pump does not completely dran out and it could smell like moldy water! Then if it's aged. I would consider not fixing both of these to problems in a washer 10 years or older not to put good money in to bad!
But if the leak is the only problem, go for the seal!
Happy to of assisted and made a different s in your life!
Bless you,
Huuum

Please give me a good rating for my sound advice before you sigan off.
Thank You
huuum
