    I have the same problem. I have a Whirlpool Duet model WFW9200SQ00. The "bellow" tore and I've had to order a replacement. I am now searching the net trying to find instructions on how to change it myself. I'm a single mom and after paying almost $100 for the part I'm hoping to avoid a service call. If anyone can e-mail me instructions, I would appreciate it.

I have not seen a tech sheet (or service manual) that details how to remove one of these. Basically, once you have your replacement boot (availible at local parts stoares or from the manufactures web site on line), You can follow these steps:
1 - Remove the front clamp. (a silver peice of wire with a spring at the botom) A small flat head screwdriver will let you pull it off.
2 - You will have a clamp on a hose that comes from the dispenser to the boot on some models that you will have to disconnect.
3 - There is a second clamp on the tub side itself. Remove it by using a short phillips head screw driver to unscrew it.
4 - remove the boot
5 - Reverse the procedure making sure to line the new boot up at the top. (there is a arrow that needs to be ligned up on the tub and the boot.
Taking the lower front panel off can give you a bit more room to work. You can take it off by removing the screws at it's bottom.

My washer is leaking water after completing a cycle


Check the rubber bellow (gasket) around the door. This is the symptom of a door gasket that it starting to leak. Pull the rubber folds back and check the area where the gasket attaches to the wash tub. You may have a crack or tear.
or
The only way to determine where the leak is coming from is to remove the lower kick panel directly below the door. Remove the panel by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. If you prop the front feet up this will give you better access (a 2 x 4 works well).

With the panel removed inspect the rubber door bellow. If the front counterweight (gray concrete block on the front of the tub) is wet, the bellow is leaking. Pull the rubber folds back and look for any rips or tears. If the bellow requires replacing, or if you need to simply tighten the clamps, the following link will explain how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385211-replacing_door_bellow_whirlpool_duet

NOTE: Check the plastic dispenser hose on the left hand side of the bellow to ensure it is inserted all the way through the rubber to the flange joint. Sometimes this dispenser hose will slip behind the bellow and allow water to seep inside the cabinet of the washer.

Check the drain pump to ensure the filter cap is secure and not leaking. The pump is in the front directly below the wash tub. If the pump IS leaking, make sure the filter cap is tight and all hose clamps are snug. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401845-replacing_drain_pump_whirlpool_duet

Check all hoses the run from the wash tub to the pump, and from the pump to the standpipe at the wall for any signs of cracks or tears.

If the leak is coming from the center portion under the tub, the tub seal is breached and needs to be replaced. This is not an easy repair and will require some extensive disassembly to repair. (Cross that hurdle when the time comes).

Any replacement parts you may need can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. You can use any web source you like, but these I have found, offer great service with competitive pricing. Shop all of them for the best prices. Hopefully you won't need any parts.

A piece of the rubber has come off the inside of washer and water now leaks out,


Piece of rubber WHERE? If you are referring to the rubber bellow (door seal), 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 are not referrig to the door bellow, or if you have questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. 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.

Water leaking from front door


Check gasket for rips or damage. Replace if necessary.
Clean gasket after every use. Wipe with a bleachy rag. Use only HE detergent in small amounts.Dog hair, etc can get stuck in the gasket causing a small leak. Oversudsing can also cause leaks.

My ht3 #4292 is leaking water from the door


If water is coming through the door bellow and into the tub and not the floor, this is commonly caused by a water inlet valve that is leaking by or a pressure switch malfunction. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem to determine which one is causing your problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3753262-front_load_washer_fills_when_not_in_use

I included parts resources and instructions on how to replace each component as well.

If you have water leaking on the floor, you may also have a bellow with a rip or tear. If the bellow is leaking, it must be replaced. Pull back the rubber folds and inspect the entire perimeter around the door to be sure. If the bellow needs replaced, the following link explains how:

Leaking water


If your LG washer is a front loading machine, the bellow or gasket may need to be replaced. this is a common problem with front loaders as the bellow can be pierced by anything that may be in or even on your clothes. I would visually inspect every inch of the front bellow to see if there is a TEAR or PIN HOLE. this can be hard to detect sometimes but can save you alot of grief. hope this helps

Thanks

Have you looked behind the bellow under the folds to make sure there's no rips or tears? The bellow could appear okay on the outside, but still could have a tear somewhere out of plain view. I had this happen to me before.

The inner seal from the bellow to the tub could also be loose now. If you said a garment got stuck and the washer continued through the cycle, this could have loosen the seal where it attaches to the wash tub. You would need to tighten the band clamp around the facing of the tub if this is the case.

A good way in determining where the leak may be coming from is to remove the lower panel under the door. Start a wash cycle and watch to see where the water is coming out.

Now...if the tub seal is loose it may require some disassembly to get to. If you're going to go the route of disassembling the washer front, and have never replaced the bellow before, it probably wouldn't hurt to replace it anyway. My rationale: It's better to disassemble the washer once, rather than possibly having to do it all over again in the near future.

You can get a replacement bellow at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Door and Latch Parts" section for item number 1 (part #8540952). It only costs about $32.

If you need instructions on how to replace the bellow, just go to my profile and look under my "Tips and Tricks". There is a write I posted there giving step-by-step instructions. If you cannot find it, or have any further questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps answer some of your questions.

Open your wall faucet to full pressure to stop the drip. If this does not work simply change the inlet valve of the machine which is at the top, where the water enters the machine. You can do it yourself. And rate me plz if helped.
