You will need a T-20 driver. that is the one that is a star pattern, you will also need either a flat tip or phillips tip screw driver.

first remove the two screws that secure the door.
second lift gently on the door to remove the door.
Third remove the 3 T-20 screws on the bottom of the washer, If you have the stand this is really easy.
Fourth Loosen the retaining clip inside the washer on the right hand side.
Fifth remove the retaining clip on the outside of the washer. If you just pull the bellow towards yourself it will come off.

Remember not to tighten the inside retaining clip to tight.

Leaks water on rinse cycle thru upper vent


Are you referring to the vent on the back of the machine? If your leaking water, you need to replace or install some new mushroom valves. These mushroom valves, go in both bellows on the top of the machine. One bellow goes from the dispenser box, to the tub. This is where the water goes into the tub, to fill. The other bellow, is attached to the top of the tub, to vent. These both have or are suppose to have mushroom valves in them. If they do not, you're machine will leak water out the back of the vent.

Leaking water from underneath


The door connects to a round gasket called the "bellows". If it is torn, deformed or coming off water will leak underneath. Undo the 3 screws in the lower front panel and do an inspection of that area

Front loading Whirlpool Duet Washer leaks from bottom of machine


If the washer only leaks during the spin cycle, you may have a worn door bellow (rubber seal). As the washer spins, the centrifugal force of the tub can spin the water into the door area. If the seal is torn, it will leak out of the bottom of the washer. You will need to inspect the perimeter around the door to ensure the seal does not have any rips or tears. To be sure, you need to remove the lower toe panel under the door and inpsect the washer thoroughly. The following link explains how to access the interior of the washer cabinet and how to inspect for leaks:

The door bellow DOES wear out with age, but if you have a tendancy to overload the washer it can contribute to premature wear. If you determine that the bellow requires replacement, the following link explains how to replace one:

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope I've given you enough information to help you find the source of your leak.

Whirlpool duet washer leaking water


If the washer is leaking around the door area, more than likely the bellow (rubber seal) is ripped or torn. If you pull back the rubber folds in the bellow and inspect, you may find a rip or tear causing your leak.

Another cause can be the rear bellow clamp (clamp that is affixed to the front of the wash tub) can come loose causing a leak between the bellow and tub. All you may have to do is tighten the clamp if this is the case.

The dispenser tube on the left hand side of the door, if not seated through the rubber correctly, can also leak during the fill or rinse cycles. The tube should be inserted through the rubber in the bellow to the flange on the tube. If not, water can fill behind the rubber and drip into the bottom washer casing.

Searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com and repairclinic.com carry the bellow. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best deal.

If you have any questions, or require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you. NOTE: The bellow can also become mishapened over time after frequent use. This can also cause leaks around the door. Look to make sure the bellow is sealing around the door glass. If not, it should also be repalced.
