We have water leaking out of the front of our washer not from the door but from just below the door. Is all over the floor??


most likely you have a hole in the boot seal,the rubber piece in between the door and the tub,also open the door and wipe the bottom part of the door on the plastic window,i've found pieces of hair there and the water travels down the hair and leaks through the door.if that's clean you have a hole in the boot seal,open the door,spread the rubber boot open and with you fingers feel all around the rubber boot

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.

LG washer retaining ring problem


Get a second person to help you. Just slowly start at the top. Have your hands go down each side tucking it in and have your friend prevent it from coming out. I know it's a pain but it can be down. That tool is a life saver.

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!!!!!!

The door won't close.


replace the door lock assy, you can't fix this without almost certainly breaking it by prying with a flat screwdriver. Remove door boot spring, fold door boot back over door lock area, unscrew door lock screws (3), then remove from harnesses and replace. Reverse door boot and spring removal, top of spring first, then work your way down ensuring a good snug fit with no water leaks, it may take you a couple of trys.

I have a Maytag Neptune Front Loader. I am trying to replace the door seal because it leaks but can not get the machine apart.


For replacing the nuptune boots, I belive these are all of the steps. First, take the 2 phillips screws out of the door hinges. You should be able to lift slightly on the door and pull it towards you to remove it. Also remove the 2 phillips screws straight across from them. This will let your front panel come of (grasp up top and twist slightly to get it off the clips. Lower the front down and you can remove it from the washer and set it aside. Remove the 4 phillips screws from your soap/ fab softner dispenser. Next, remove the 2 5/16 screws that hold the top on to the front of the washer.
To remove the boot, first, pull the front part of the boot towards you. It will actually pull off without much effort. On the bottom (depending on model) there will be a tube at the bottom of the boot that is either stoppered up or connected to a black hose. Squeeze the green clamp to remove the hose if it does have one. To take of the back half of the boot, we're back up top. Lift the top of the machine (you may want someone to hold it or just slide the machine far enough forward the top can stand up by itself). You will see a large spring connected to what looks like a piece of cable coated in clear plastic. Pull the cable towards the front by the spring. It will quickly contract.
Reinstalation time. Take your new boot and install the back half. As you work the boot on, you will see some triangles all the way around to help you line it up correctly. Once it is on, it's time to re-clamp. This is the tough part. Typically what I do, is I make sure the cable is wrapped around the boot from the bottom with the clips at the top. (there is a nice notch for it to fit into) Next I take one side of the spring and attach it to the clip on the cable making sure that the hook side of the spring points up. Now, grab the clip on the cable (without the spring attached) with a pair pf pliers. I use a pair of needle nose pliers to grasp the spring. Now I stretch the two of them together. This will not be easy and the spring will be under some tension. Once the spring is on the clip, lower the lid. (there will be a black wire harness on the right hand side that needs to be tucked back into place for the lid to close properly. Screw the lid down. Re-connect the hose at the bottom of the boot if your machine was equiped with one. Push the front part of your boot back on. Put your door back on the clips where it sits. Lift slightly on the door and swing it closed. Run a test cycle (fill, tumble and drain) while you are standing there to check for leaks. Once you have verified there are no leaks, replace the front panel and your screws. If you run into troubles, message me back.

Fitting door seal


this is general for fittying door boots.

on cabinet, door boot is usuallyn held by a wire ring tensioned by a small spring. prise it out with a screwdriver.

on tub, door boot is held usually by a giant hose clip for want of a better description. unscrew the tensioning screw and remove.

door boot will then pull off - just pull it off in one place then go round the circle.

to refit.

lubricate the groove in the door boot that fits on the tub with washing up liquid. insert groove on tub at any convenient place and force into position by running thumbs round it in opposite directions. this is a knack i have to say.

when on, replace the giant hose clip and tighten.

slip the outer part of the door boot on the cabinet - this is usually easy. replace the holding clip.

put onto rinse cycle to test for leaks

good luck
