SOURCE: If I replace my bellow seal in my front loader will it leak?

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.

Most likely you have a pump shaft seal leaking you can buy a new pump at this site. You may remove the pump and clean with pool muratic acid, but it is very caustic you would have to put pump in the acid bath in a metal pan that you don't mind using it and it will eat all the organic buildup from the pump. However it may leak worse as the organic material may keep it from leaking too much. So I suggest you use the pump, if you use mueratic acid it is highly toxic so read directions on using it and were air mask and rubber gloves while using it then rinse off with clean water. You should put water hose in the drain pipe and tunrn on the water to test the drain pipe as well. this will make sure the drain pipe is fine. Look at the hoses near the clamps as this is where holes develop on the water pump hoses.

Follow these steps to replace your door seal:
Disconnect all power to the machine first!!


1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,

If the hole goes right through the seal it could be the cause, but I am inclined to think it is a vent hole for the seal and that a leaking seal will come out on the front panel. Remove the machine back and check the pump seals and the hoses, it is more likely those at that age. Take care, there may be live terminals and connectors inside the back of the machine when the power is on.

Washing machine leaking underneath


might simply be a small hole in the outlet drainage hose, this would explain why your machine leaks during the final spin, there is more pressure from the water inside the hose during the final spin than when the machine is draining. hope this helps.

MANSFIELD TOILET KEEP LEAKING


I'm not exactly sure where the seals are that you are describing. I'm thinking that you might need to shut the water off, unbolt the toilet from the floor, and replace the big wax toilet gasket underneath.

That's the main seal for internal plumbing in the toilet, unless you're talking about the toilet leaking into itself and wasting water. In that case you might need to simply adjust the mechanism (float, flapper valve etc.) to get the right setup.

I'm not sure I completely understand your problem though.
I hope this has helped anyway.

I have front loader MFW9700 Maytag washer. Water


Check the door seal for tears and the drain boot from tub to drain boot for anything that might have put a hole in like a piece of metal from an under wire bra which front loads will spin so fast that the wires come out of the bras.
