Leak/boot tear in whirlpool duet washer


The front door seal is referred to as the "bellow". They will wear out with age and may become mishapened from repeated pressure from the door being closed. Over time the bellow can stretch or develop rips and tears and begin to leak. If the bellow is leaking, or no longer providing a good seal, it must be replaced. This will cause water to puddle under the front of the washer and inside the cabinet. The following link explains how to access and replace one:

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


Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

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

All these sites are reputable and have great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If the model number is correct, the part number is 8182119.

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

NOTE: If you leave the door OPEN between washes this will help 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. In addition, overloading the washer can contribute to 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.

Whirlpool Duet washer will not start . Hear a clicking noise then receive DL F fault


The clicking sound is coming from the door lock/switch assembly trying to lock the door but it cannot. After six trials, the error code "FdL" shows up on the display. Press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear it.

The only way to fix the problem is by replacing the door lock/switch assembly with part numer 8181700 and costs about $40-$55. Some vendors listed it as part number 1094190 or PS972231. Below is the replacement procedure.

Door Lock/Switch Replacement Procedure
  1. Unplug the machine and open the door.
  2. Stretch the retainer spring of the seal boot retaining hoop then remove it. The seal boot is the gray rubber around the door opening. The retaining spring is located at the bottom of the door opening. The door lock/switch assembly is located on the right side of the door opening.
  3. Ease the part of the seal boot off the lip of the door opening near the door lock/switch assembly. Remove enough of the seal boot to gain access to the door lock/switch assembly behind the front panel of the washer. Be careful not to tear the seal boot because it will cause water to leak from the tub.
  4. Remove the three screws securing the door lock/switch assembly to the front panel.
  5. Lift the door lock/switch assembly and pull it away from the front panel then pull it out of the machine.
  6. Disconnect the wiring harness connector and connect the new door lock/switch assembly.
  7. Reinstall the new door lock/switch assembly and the seal boot in reverse order of the procedure above.

My machine wont start ,unless i really have to slam the door real


Either the switch striker/actuator on the door is worn or the door lock/switch assembly on the right side of the door opening is faulty. It is recommended to replace both parts when one is faulty or worn. The door lock/switch assembly is part number 1094190 and costs about $55. The switch striker/actuator is part number 906446 and costs about $5.

Door Lock/Switch Replacement Procedure
  • Unplug the machine.
  • Open the machine's door.
  • Locate the retainer spring of the seal boot retaining hoop at the bottom of the door opening.
  • Stretch the retainer spring apart then remove the retaining hoop.
  • Ease the edge of the seal boot off the lip of the door opening near the door lock/switch assembly. Remove enough of the seal boot to gain access to the door lock/switch assembly behind the front panel of the washer. Be careful not to tear the seal boot. It will cause water to leak out of the machine.
  • Remove the three screws securing the door lock/switch assembly to the front panel.
  • Slightly lift the door lock/switch assembly, pull it away from the front panel then pull it out of the machine.
  • Disconnect the wiring harness and connect the new door lock/switch assembly.
  • Reinstall the new door lock/switch assembly and the seal boot in reverse order of the procedure above.

Rubber door seal rip...


The rubber door boot (bellow) commonly wears out on these front loaders. A replacement will run you about $80 just for the bellow. Labor could run as high as $180 if you decide to hire someone to replace it for you. If you wish to perform the repairs yourself, post back with your intentions and I can provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to replace it. It is labor intensive as you will have to remove the entire washer front in order to do the job right. It IS possible, however, if you wish to pursue a repair option on your own. Just let me know.

PS I can also provide you with the part number if you reply with your washer model number (found along the door opening).
