Question about Washing Machines
If it is indeed leaking form the door boot, you should be able to find a hole somewhere. Take off the bottom panel off the machine, and try to look up inside it to find the source of the leak. (Three screws underneath)
The part number for the boot is W10111435. It should be available at any major appliance parts shop, or online. Just google the part number.
As far as replacement of the boot, it is fairly simple, although it can be awkward to reach the clamp. The outer clamp, the clamp holding the boot to the washer cabinet it just a spring clamp, the spring should be at the bottom of the boot. It just pulls off with needle nose pliers. The inner clamp is a bit trickier. Once the outer clamp is off, fold the boot back into the tub so you can reach into the machine (make sure it is unplugged first!). The clamp screw should be ont the right hand side, about the 2 o'clock position. It unscrews with a 8mm nut driver (may be 7 or 9, I forget). One that is loose the boot will just pull off. The new one goes back on the same way, just press it into the grove on the tub (be patient) and put the clamp on and tighten. Don't over tighten, or the clamp will actually pull the boot back off. Just snug it down. A trick to use if the boot is too stiff it to throw it in the dryer to heat it up for 5 min or so.
