It will not leak if you install it correctly. Click on the following link for step-by-step instructions on how to replace a door bellow:

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

Inspect the new bellow PRIOR to beginning installation. Make sure the inner clamp that attaches to the wash tub is snug and not overtight. Also, make sure the rubber on the bellow that fits over the dispenser tube in the door area is installed past the flange (raised area on the tube). These are the common points that leak. Please let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.

It appears that out washing machine is leaking from underneath. Is this possible? We have had it for 9 years. Is it time to get a new one?


Before assuming the washer needs replacing, please follow the advice in the following link to determine where the source of your leak may be coming from:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

Most common sources of front loader leaks come from the door bellow (gray rubber seal). The rubber seal does wear out over time and may need to be replaced. The cost of a replacement bellow is far less expensive than replacing the entire washer. The last time I checked (I personally own a front loader), these washers are not cheap.

If you determine, the bellow needs replaced, the following link explains how to replace one:

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

Another secondary cause can be a leaking drain pump. Make sure you also check all the interior drain hoses and fittings. If replacement parts are required, I have found great luck with the following web sites:

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

The first three websites have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. Shop and compare. Prices vary between sites.

If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

My front loader washer is leaking at the door and it don't seem to get my clothes clean what do i do


Inspect the door bellow (seal) for any rips or tears. It may be worn or loose and require replacement. This is a fairly simple repair that anyone can do with a little guidance. The following link explains step-by-step how to install a door bellow on a Whirlpool Duet front loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385210-replacing_door_bellow_kenmore_elite

Although the bellow may not have any physical tears, they can also become mishapened over time due to normal wear and not seal properly. You should have a good tight seal all the way around the door.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions.

NOTE: There is another method you may try as well. Although I do not prefer this next method because these washing machines are very heavy, an alternative way of replacing the door bellow is to remove the lower toe panel and tilt the washer back at a 45 degree angle instead of removing the washer front panel. If you use this method, make sure it rests against the wall and will not tip forward. This allows the wash tub to drop down and away from the front panel and gives you access to the the rear bellow clamp through the bottom. This can save you some time. Thanks to user DGBG for the helpful tip.

If you would like some helpful exploded view diagrams of your washer that you can reference, you can use any of these web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com

Just use your model number to begin your search criteria.

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

NOTE: These door seals do wear out and require replacement from time to time. However, overloading the washer to the point where items get caught in the door area can contribute to premature wear and tear.

Some additional items to look for that may cause leaks around the bellow:

1. Check the dispenser tubes that pentrate the door bellow. Sometimes they get pushed behind the rubber causing the water to trickle behind the bellow and leak. You will notice this on fill and rinse.

2. Check the rear bellow clamp that holds the seal to the front facing of the wash tub. The clamp can come loose, causing it not to seal properly.
