I've noticed that the rubber seal around the door to my front load washer is molded and is brownish/black, is this a cause of water leaking from the bottom of the door? I need to know what to order to fix the leak and instructions so I can do it myself without paying a technician to come out. My unit is only 1 1/2 year old. PLEASE HELP.. moving to a new house and would like it fixed ASAP!
ANSWER Hillary, Besides replacing the bellows assembly 134515300 for mold and mildew, you want to check and make sure you are using the proper type and amount of laundry detergent and softner. The mold and the leak at the door could indicate an improper break down of detergent or softner and or sudsing, causing the appearance of a leak from the door and the mold in the bellows.
