Try using bicycle inner tube repair patch, because it has the same flexibility as the rubber gasket on door, make sure rubber on door is clean and dry before applying rubber patch

My water bed is leaking, how can I stop the leak?


Firstly you must drain the water out, attach a garden hoseto the outlet and allow it to drain into the bathtub (you do not need to let itdrain all the way, just enough to allow you to lift the mattress) Second applypressure to the mattress to locate the source of the leak, when you have foundthe hole ***** how big it is, if it is of pinhole dry it and apply rubbersealant or rubber cement over it. Allow 30 mins or so to dry and you should beable to refill the mattress. If the hole is much bigger you should cut a patchfrom a bicycle inner tube that covers the hole. Make sure you overlap by atleast a quarter of an inch all the way around. Brush on a coat of rubber cementdirectly on the mattress. Brush a coat on the patch. Let dry until tacky and putthe patch over the hole. If you want, you can put alight coat of rubber cement over the entire repair.

My grey rubber gasket around the tub has a 1" rip in it. This is located where you open the front load door and on the grey rubber gasket just inside. Is there a patch kit? Or do I have to replace...


I search on google and no such patch kit. I tried a bike inner tube repair kit and it seems to work, but my holes are less than 1". Check out my post. I have a gasket on the way just in case.

Water has leaked from bottom


do you mean from the bottom of door? if so open door and run your fingers around the rubber gasket to see if there is any forign matter or rips, and check the small drain hole on the inside bottom of gasket, if there is a tear you could repair with a bicycle innertube repair patch

MAH550BWW front load Maytag washer-gasket drainis clogged


There is a 2" L shape hose connected to that drain hole under. You can unclog it using a soft plastic stick. Stick it on to that hole do not force it turn the plastic stick while putting it in. Thare are 2 types of door gasket on that model one has hole in it and the other doesn't. If your original doesn't have a hole, the one that has a hole will work but there is a plug on to that hole.

This is your door gasket

Just take the front panell off to see if there's a small hose connected to the gasket drain hole. You can even clean it after taking the panell off

Replace boot gasket


Hello, Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversible, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everything. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.

Thanks

The loading door gasket-- the big rubber liner doesn't drain


Some front loaders have a door boot drain hole, most do not and it is normal for some water to accumulate at bottom of boot. To help with mold and mildew use a washing machine cleaning solution, follow directions. Also a bleach solution of 2 parts water 1 part bleach sprayed on area helps. If mildew is really bad, nothing will completly remove it. Make sure you use only a high efficiency detergent.

Mildew smell


PLEASE KKEP IN MIND THAT THE MAYTAG NEPRUNE FRONT LOAD WASHER IS WHAT GOT MAYTAG IN TROUBLE!!!!!!
Whirlpool bought MAYTAG about 3 year ago.

THe mold is because of the rubber boot in the front of the door. PLEASE check to see if the rubber seal has a small hole in the lower bottom of the seal to let small portions of water drain out. If you DO NOT have this small hole, you need to replace the rubber boot with one that has a hole.
NOW, WORD TO THE WISE and this is what I tell ALL FOLKS that have a FRONTLOAD WASHING MACHINE:
AFTER you washer in the washer LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN so that the washer can ventilate and remove any moisture that is within.
ALSO, every 2 months, get a WHITE CLOTH with WARM WATER and a littl;e bit of BLEACH and CLEAN THE RUBBER BOOT!!!!!!

Maytag washer MAH6500 leak - door boot issue?


there is a drain hole at the very bottom of the sump
about 1/4 in
if you ahve any other holes you will need a new boot
there is no real way to patch them, most patches will not flex enough to stay in place
ive included the part number you can order from sears
22003070
the best way to get one over on sears is to order it
then you cazn either fix it kinda hard but id walk you through it
or when the part arrives shedule service, just tell them its leaking

only when the tech gets there tell them you have a boot
sears hates self diagnostics and you will go to the bottom of the list

Rubber piece


If you mean in the bottom of the gasket between the drum and the door the hole is to allow water to drain from the gasket to prevent standing water which will smell .

Change rubber gasket


Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversable, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everthing. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. We used strong vice grips and much struggling and sweat, and #@*&%!&@ and finally got it on without damage to the new gasket. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.
