Whirlpool front loader still leaking
« on: November 29, 2010, 07:39:10 AM »
Hello, I replaced the bellow and the washing machine still leaks. It seems like the door is not making a good seal with the bellow. it is leaking from the bottom of the door. it leaks when the washer is filling up with water. thanks

Model GHW9100LW2

Please post the model number of your washer.

Did you try cleaning the glass around the bottom of the door were it makes contact with the bellows?
Hope you find our website helpful.

Is this a common problem with this washer. The door does seem to have a bit of play.

I have had to change a few door hinges myself to correct problems with the door leaking.

That is the correct part number.

Put a couple of washers behind the door latch.Also you can put a little food grade silicon on the bottom of the new bellow.The unit is not filling to full?
