Washer is leaking


If your Whirlpool FRONT LOADER is leaking, the following link can give you some guidance on how to inspect the washer to determine where the source of the leak may be coming from:

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


Most commonly, the source of the leak comes from the door bellow (gray rubber seal). They do wear out with age and can develop small rips and tears. A routine inspection of the perimeter of the door seal can determine if you have any holes. If the seal is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:


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


The manufacturer recommends that you leave the washer door open between washes to prevent the seal from becoming permanently stretched. Once the seal stays compressed constantly it can stretch and not seal properly. In addition, leaving the door open helpd let the wash tub air out and prevent mold, mildew and musty odors.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

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

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Large inside rubber seal torn for the third time


new boot or "bellow" is $116 and you could do it yourself. some older front loaders had this problem. the larger the gap opening to its lower trench the more it collects. would not recommend tranditional top loader as these are being phased out. if you must buy a new machine- recommend other than whirlpool, front load (buy GE, or LG)
