Your Door Gasket has started to deteriorate, I'd advise replacing it. Its easy to replace, but takes a lot of time. Getting the back spring on is quite a mission. Let me know and I'll walk you through the process. You could in the meantime just refit it, and hope it holds.

Kind Regards

Front of wm2277h is leaking


Door could be misaligned through constant use and movement. I have often fixed this kind of problem by loosening any screws on the inside plate and gently twisting the door in the direction required to better align it. Then tighten up all screws.

Don't attempt it at my recommendation... unless you are happy to risk causing possible damage. If not, call a technician who will quickly determine if it can be re-aligned or needs a new door and seal.

The door gasket is twisted, how do I fix it?


There is a metal retainer with a spring on the outside of the door around the seal remove that and re-form the seal around to door panel and secure with retaining spring. If this doesn't help you will have to replace the seal.

Changing a door seal how do you replace the door seal ?


  1. Check the door seal size. Measure your door or doors, and take down the make and model number. Ads by Google
    '; for(i = 0; i '+ '' + google_ads[i].line1 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line2 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line3 + '
    ' + '' + google_ads[i].visible_url + ''; } s += ""; document.write(s); return; } google_ad_channel = '+7733764704+1640266093+5860073694+9911500640+9665908481+9016233241+8388126455+8941458308+8509902424+8509902424+9683278076+7122150828' + xchannels + gchans; google_ad_client = "pub-9543332082073187"; google_ad_output = 'js'; google_ad_type = 'text'; google_feedback = 'on'; google_ad_region = "test"; google_ad_format = '250x250_as'; //--> google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);
  2. 2Order a replacement door seal. It's easy to find them online. Make sure to check the model number for your refrigerator when you order it. When it arrives, hold the new door seal up against the old door seal to compare the size. The sizes are rarely incorrect, but it will save you the trouble of doing the job twice if you happened to receive the wrong door seal.
  3. 3Locate the screws. Lift the edges of the seal and find the screws underneath that are holding in the plastic liner and door seal. Often, the screws hold in a plastic liner, which in turn clamps the door seal to the door.
  4. 4Loosen the screws. Begin to loosen the screws that hold in the door seal. DO NOT take the screws all of the way out. It is unnecessary and will create more of a job for you. If at all possible, loosen only a few screws at a time, as you go.
  5. 5Remove the old seal. Once all of the screws are loose, the door seal should easily slide out from behind the plastic liner. Don't be too forceful when doing this step, since some plastic liners can be quite brittle and crumble if you are too rough. If the plastic is old, replace it.
  6. 6Insert the new seal. Begin slipping the small lip of the new door seal behind the plastic liner of the fridge. The best method is to start in the top corners and work your way around the door.
  7. 7Tighten the screws. Once the door seal is in a certain section, you can begin tightening the screws. Begin with the 8 corner screws, and then check the alignment of the door while closed. Also check that the seal is even and straight. If the door is twisted, you can easily manipulate the door to twist back into shape whilst the screws are loose. Then tighten the remaining screws.
  8. 8Apply powder. Use a bit of baby powder or talcum powder to prevent sticking. Rub some powder around the hinge side corners of the door seal, and where the seal slides. This will help to prevent the door seal from twisting as it meets the metal of the fridge. If this still doesn't prevent twisting, then wedge a screwdriver under the seal as you close the door and leave it shut for an hour.
  9. 9Check for gaps. Look for any gaps in the door seal, especially at the top on the opening side. These can form due to the door dropping or being out of alignment. One way to check is to turn on a flashlight and place it inside, then close the door and look for light.
  10. 10Fix any gaps in the door seal. Pack out the seal underneath the areas where the door seal has the gaps. This can be done with a small strip of weather stripping, as shown here, or a bit of tightly rolled up paper under the door seal. Alternatively, you can heat the door seal up with a hair dryer to fix the gaps. This softens the door seal and allows you to stretch it.
  11. 11Check the corners. If the application of powder hasn't prevented the door seal twisting, then wedge a screwdriver under the seal as you close the door and leave it shut for an hour. The door seal will then have enough time to mould into the correct shape.

Water is leaking from the bottom in the front left side of side by side maytag. water line is ok not leaking. can't see where it is coming from.


the water for the dispenser (ice/water dispenser in the freezer door) comes from under the frige then up thru the bottom hinge of the freezer door .. it then goes inside the door up to the dispenser .. its a plastic hose and it has to twist near the hinge each time the door is opened .. thats where it usually breaks or develops a pin hole leak .. you can replace the whole hose or just the damaged section if that easier ... since the bottom freezer.hinge where that hose comes up thru, is at the position of your leak then i suspect thats your trouble ... ..also check the condensate pan to make sure its not full .. thats a flat pan under the fridge ..you can usually get acess to it by removing the front kick panel at the bottom of the frige .. if thats full then look for a door seal leak (damaged rubber seal) ... a broken seal or open door will allow moisture to condense inside the machine ..that runs down into the condensate pan where it normally evaporates .. but a problem (like open door) will fill it up to overflow in time ....

My front load kenmore washer door gasket is garbelled


Something probably got caught in the seal and pulled it out of place. If u run washer so that it fills up and starts tumbling,,, and there is no water leak,, there is a good chance u can repair this yourself. So if there is no water leaking,,, you can try and take out the bottom front panel and twisting, or shoving it back into place. If there is water leaking,,, than chances are its ripped or broken, and will need to be completely replaced

Clothes got tangled with rubber seal inside and ripped it. How do I fix/get a new seal?


This part is a problem on many front-loaders and never really goes away. The rubber seal is a replaceable part and should be supplied under warranty. There is no way to fix it.You should try very hard to get Sears to pick up the labor cost as well.

Washer door seal is loose


The rubber seal fits over the lip around the door opening. Carefully seat the rubber seal all the way around the door opening first. Then, place the wire hoop in the crease where the rubber seal fits over the lip. Insert the hoop with the spring pointing at the bottom. Starting at the top and work your way around the door opening to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. While holding the hoop in place, stretch the spring apart enough to allow the rest of the hoop to snap into the crease at the bottom of the door opening. You may need a second pair of hands to help you with this. Good luck and I hope this helps you.
