Question about Electrolux EIFLS60JIW Washer

Open Question

Electrolux model EIFLS60JIW1. It is leaking at the bottom of the door seal. I just got done replacing the seal, and now the leak is a little worse. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I double checked everything. Seal, hinge and latch are all seated properly but the seal barely touches the glass.

SOURCE: whirlpool duet front loadsher leaks at the bottom of door. how do you replace the seal around the door

Hey Guys or Gals


The Whirlpool Duet Washer and why it Leak's. 1) Make sure the Boot(which is the black thing that hook's to your tub and your door) And the ring around it, is tight.Now this Ring,is a Metal Band that keeps the boot on the tub Tight .You can tighten it or loosen it..ifs its loose, then it will leak...Then, there's a Ring around the door as well, Both of these rings are hard to see..so make sure, your really looking good. Now what most people don't thing about is the Main Inlet Tube.On page 18 in the manual.on picture 3.5 it show this source of water that comes into the tub.,this Main Inlet Tube that connect to the Dispenser Assembly,will come loose and will Drip or at times Leak bad,To be able to understand where this is located. First 1) take of the top cover of the washer, 2) take off the front part that hold the door on.That means when you look at your Manual look to pages 31,32,33 and this will tell you how to take off the front of the washer,It's not that hard, to take off,just take your time..and have an extra pair of hands helping you, so it easier and faster.But once you get the front of the waster off,and yes that counts the Electronic display header,That's that button you push to run the washer,,it will pop off after you take a couple of screws out ,after you take the top of the was off..you see them. but back to the MAIN TUBE INLET, this will loosen and water will leak from this now when you replace the boot on this the tube will come loose when trying to put your ring around the boot,you cant tell that its loose becaue you cant see if after installing the boot,i know this dont make any since,but im sure it will if your start to tear it apart..and taking these steps to fix the leak. just make sure that you track the leak,to make sure that this is it...just make sure you take the steps to repair it ..if that means order a new piece then do it. But These Step Will Save you Lots of Time & Money if your Going to play someone to fix it...Here's the Link to the Manual,Just download it and go to the pages i put down ..Might have to copy and paste the address

SOURCE: Kenmore HE2 Washing Machine Leaking

Have you looked behind the bellow under the folds to make sure there's no rips or tears? The bellow could appear okay on the outside, but still could have a tear somewhere out of plain view. I had this happen to me before.

The inner seal from the bellow to the tub could also be loose now. If you said a garment got stuck and the washer continued through the cycle, this could have loosen the seal where it attaches to the wash tub. You would need to tighten the band clamp around the facing of the tub if this is the case.

A good way in determining where the leak may be coming from is to remove the lower panel under the door. Start a wash cycle and watch to see where the water is coming out.

Now...if the tub seal is loose it may require some disassembly to get to. If you're going to go the route of disassembling the washer front, and have never replaced the bellow before, it probably wouldn't hurt to replace it anyway. My rationale: It's better to disassemble the washer once, rather than possibly having to do it all over again in the near future.

You can get a replacement bellow at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Door and Latch Parts" section for item number 1 (part #8540952). It only costs about $32.

If you need instructions on how to replace the bellow, just go to my profile and look under my "Tips and Tricks". There is a write I posted there giving step-by-step instructions. If you cannot find it, or have any further questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps answer some of your questions.

SOURCE: leaking dishwasher

hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

SOURCE: Door Leak:Electrolux #EDW5500DSS

The leak from the door sounds like the door may have moved could be from the door going down a bit hard (yes we all do it sometimes)to acidently leaning on it etc whatever the cuase this can happen you will need to remove the side panels for this and see where the door hinges mount on the machine there is normally an adjustment there where you can loosen a screw or two and push the dorr for a closer gap when closed(it is also possible that these were loose from the factory)if you machine has no screws to adjust with there will be springs normally on both sides wich can be adjusted with a rod and nut system or by moveing the sping to a new location on the mounting plate(the different positions are marked out.Hope this helps you please let me know if you require any further assistance.Garth

How can I fix my Frigidaire PLD4375RFC Dishwasher that leaks from bottom door even after new door gaskets 154576501 and 154701001.

It sounds like you are fixing the wrong area. If water is coming down between the inner and outer door panel and following the wiring harness, the leak is inside the door. Either from the soap cup mounting or the rinse agent area which I think is the same unit on your model. There is a gasket behind that part. Also check the inner door if its plastic for any possible cracks.

I have a Whirlpool Gold GU3600XTSY0 Model. There is slow water leak from the right side bottom front of the dishwasher. It looks like the water is leaking from a sensor on the bottom. The sensor has a...

I would look at the door seal being a problem as well. if the water level float were leaking, it would be worse then just a little water. The door seal is always the first to go. these seal can be replaced by pulling the old one off and pushing the new one back in place. should be able to buy new seal from the people the unit can be bought from.

Leak around the door seal

the seal might look ok but don't forget the seal could crack on the bottom, any time the washing machine stops and the water settle
there's more water at the bottom half so the bottom of the seal takes more abuse. so I would replace the sealer and if you can buy a little thicker one.

My admiral is leaking at the bottom of the door. I have checked & cleaned all around the seals that made it worse.

The most common reason for leaks is a failed/cracked gasket. Replacing it is actually not as hard as it appears.

The second reason for leaking is damaged/bent (sprung) hinges that, when the door is closed/latched do not tightly seal the door against the gasket.

Please report what you find, OK?

We have an electrolux 26.0 cu.ft. side by side for 2 months and there is frost build up in the freezer and freezer door. What is wrong with it.

i had the same thing with my Refrig/Freeze and the repair guy said that most times its a leak around the door seal. Take a piece of paper and put it between the door seal and where it touchs the freezer close the door see if the paper pulls out easly, if it does then you have and air leak, repeat it all the way around the door. Check the bottom side carefully. One other thing check the tempeture in the freezer it only needs to be between 0 and -5. Too cold will also cause air to be pulled through the seals.
