Re: Front Loading Washing machine door gasget leaking
These arent terribly difficult with mechanical capabilities. The clamp which snugs the bellow to the tub (toward the inside) can be tricky. The front is snugged by a spring loaded cable. Also, take care to align the fill tube at approx. 10 oclock looking at it from the front. And make sure the fill tube is entirely through the hole in the new bellow. It can get frustrating but usually takes less than 30 min.

The most common cause for a front loading washer to leak from the front door is a torn or detached gasket where that gasket attached to the machine.
Open the door and begin to pull the gasket away from the opening. Look for any problems. If you find a place where the gasket is not firmly secured to the opening, you can list that area up and glue (even with super glue) the gasket back down to the metal opening.
If you find gasket damage, it will need to be replaced.
HI. check to see if the front door seal is creased slightly. if so, try to straighten it so that it is flush with the door structure when closed. check the drum seal as well. replace the door seal if needed.
Over sudding can cause this as well. make sure you are using the correct amount of HE detergent.
There are only two ways that water can leak out this way. it can be either the door seal or the door lock mech has become misaligned, causing a slight gap that is letting the water escape through.
I recommend inspecting the door lock mech for its integrity. make sure it is aligned correctly to specs. replace this mechanism if found to be faulty or misaligned. i would also inspect the seal for tiny ruptures as well. the slightest rupture or hole can allow small amounts of water to excape.
I had the same problem and it would leak huge amounts of water all over the floor. After having a repair person out 5 times. It was supposedly a fault that the seals on the door needed to be replaced. My washing machine leaked from brand new. It does leak from time to time but no where near what it use to. Hope this helps!
out the bottom of door?? no through the bottom panel???. check the rubber door seal for rips or tears pull it back and look around entire circumference. smalll rip in very front of seal where door should close against will cause leak for sure
