    My P16 has the same hole at the bottom of the grey rubber sealant ring. It is a drain hole for any water that gets between the inner and outer lips. It should be there - at least it should be there on my P16.



    Is water draining out onto the floor? What happens if you run the unit? does it wash? Does it empty it's wash waterwhile washing? If so then the problem is not with the hole in the rubber ring.

    Do you mean in the bottom of the rubber gasket between the door and the drum? If so, it is supposed to be there so that it won't hold water when cycle is finished. This prevents dirty water from staying in the gasket and smelling.

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 .

Machine leaks water


The most common place for a front load washer to leak is in the bellow. This is the rubber piece right inside the door. Pull the rubber piece back and check for tears or holes. If there are not any holes then there is probably a hole in the hose that runs from the tub to the pump. Sometimes stupid things like bra underwire and bobbi pins get in here and tear them

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

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.

Frigidaire front load washer (GLTF1040ASO) is leaking water by the detergent dispenser area. Any suggestions on what this could be?


This is usually caused by solidified detergent blocking the water ways in the detergent dispenser.

Check the inside of the dispenser to make sure the outlet holes are not blocked.

Most dispensers can be removed for cleaning check your appliance instructions for details.

from your description It seems to me you need frame #8182628 and handle #8181846.

Check for any small pieces of sharp metal in your washer tub on the front and back where the tub has a seam and is welded together. (you will need a flashlight and will have to put your head inside the washer to see this.) Check very carefully it could be very small. I have seen the stray metal welded into the tub and the tub would have to be replaced. Also check your dryer for anything sharp or holes in the front and back seals. Please rate this post.

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!!!!!!

Leaking front loader


If your washer has a rubber seal around the inside of the door and it has a little opening where the detergent comes into the washer put your hand inside the rubber piece and feel all the way around and see if you feel any holes or cracks in it and that is where it will leak from.
