Duet leaking out the front door. They replaced

Hello LPeck, This is a pretty common issue with all front loading washers. Typically it has to do with the door bellows (gasket) that seals the door to the washer cabinet.

First, look very carefully at the gasket all the way around, using a flashlight. Pay close attention to the area where the water flows into the washer. This is usually located on the upper part of the gasket and sometimes the water inlet port gets the gasket moved out of place and when the water is flowing into the washer, it can leak outside of the gasket. Make sure that the gasket is properly located around the water inlet port and that the gasket does NOT extend past the water nozzle.

The other thing to do is again look very carefully at the entire gasket for small cuts or tears that might be allowing water to leak out. Even a small cut can allow alot of water to leak out of the wash tub, so carefully push/pull the gasket with your fingers while shining the flashlight onto it.

In almost all cases, it is a cut or torn gasket that is the source of the leak.

This is an easy self-service repair, only requiring a few basic hand tools to remove the gasket bellows from the washer cabinet and inner wash tub. Just fold the back lip from the washer cabinet and you'll see the retainer wire that holds the bellows onto the cabinet. With that removed, you can then slip the bellows gasker off the cabinet lip and see and get at the inner wash tub retaining clamp. Typically held on with a large diameter hose clamp. Remove that and you're ready to install the new one in the reverse order.

Just be sure to let the new gasket lay out to help get most of the kinks out of it, from being in the small shipping box, and install it slowly and carefully, so not to put any cuts in it.

This will save you around $150 +/- instead of having a service tech do the installation/repair for you.

If you want to see and order the part yourself, you can go to the following link to see the gasket and how it is installed. You can order it online from sears, or any place you wish.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

This is a pretty easy repair to do and all you need to do is open up the door and go around the outer lip of the bellows gasket and find the retaining loop that holds the front edge onto the front cabinet panel. Look for the locking loop and carefully remove it. I find that a couple of pairs of small needle nose pliers work well, just be careful not to bend the retaining wire loop, as you'll need to reuse this when you put the new bellows gasket on.

Here's a line drawing that shows your washer model and the parts involved, to help make this a bit easier to understand and so you can see what you're going to do.

Once you've got the outer lip retainer off, you'll be able to roll back the gasket off the front panel mounting lip and get to the rear hose clamp. It's basically a giant diameter hose clamp like you'd find on your car's radiator, etc. You'll need a small socket or nut driver to remove this clamp (usually it's either a 1/4" or 5/16" but sometimes it's a larger 3/8" size.

Loosen it and remove it carefully and you can now remove the entire bellows gasket.

When you go to install the new one, you'll want to make sure that you line up the water inlet section properly (if your's has this design, so do, some don't). Be careful not to rip or tear the gasket when putting it on the outer tub and when you tighten up the clamp. Take your time and don't rush this, as you don't want to be doing it again, as these gaskets aren't cheap!

Once you've got the rear of the gasket on, you can then carefully and gently start pulling the front lip onto and over the outer front cabinet. It helps to have help in holding the starting point onto the lip while you continue installing the rest of the bellows gasket onto the cabinet lip.

Once you've got the entire gasket on the front cabinet and you're sure it's on the lip all the way around the panel. You can then reinstall the retaining wire loop.

Now you're done and can give it a try, as you've just likely saved yourself about another $150-175 bill by not having to have a service tech come out and do the job for you!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

How to reinstall rubber ring between door frame and washer tub on a whirlpool duet washer

The rubber ring is called the "bellow". The following link explains the steps necessary to install one:

Make sure you inspect the bellow to ensure it has no leaks or tears, first. Re-installing a damaged bellow will only result in a leaky washer.

If its only the front bellow clamp that needs to be re-installed, skip down to step 12. If the rear clamp has come loose where it attaches to the front of the wash tub, then you will have to follow all the steps that require you to remove the front panel. It may sound intimidating, but its an easy repair if you follow the steps provided.

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

I have a torn boot and have purchased the replacement part, but now need to know how to replace it.

If you open the front door and look at the edge of the bellows gasket, you'll see a wire retainer that secures the outer lip of the bellows gasket to the main body of the washer. Once you remove than with a pair of needle nose pliers, you can pull the bellows gasket off the washer body and look inside to find the 1/4" or 5/16" nut clamp that holds the gasket onto the inner drum.

Be very careful when installing the new bellows gasket to get the water inlet section properly lined up with the fixed water inlet port, since you don't want to tear the new bellows and have the same problem all over again. This is a relatively easy repair and can be done by those with very limited experience, provided you take your time and are careful in handling the bellows gasket to prevent damaging it during the installation phase.

Here's a link showing the bellows gasket and the two (2) clamps that hold it in place. (Please copy and paste, as the link didn't fully load as HTML.) The 2nd link is the full sized view of the parts. AND LATCH PARTS&documentId=W0501061&backToLink=Return to Sub Components list

Tear in bellows on whirlpool duet sport

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, then the following link will guide you through the necessary steps required to replace a door bellow on a Whirlpool Duet:

I apologize, but I do not have any pictures to upload of the procedure. However, if you go to and type in your model number, there are some excellent exploded view diagrams of your washer to assist in dis-assembly and repair. The bellow and components are listed under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading. The part number for door bellow is 8182119.

An alternate method of replacing the bellow is to remove the top panel of the washer and work through the door opening. However, the method described in the link provided, offers the best access.

If you have questions, if this is not your make and model number, or if you require additional assistance, please let me know.

PS has the door bellow for a better price.
