When the washer is used a thin stream of water leaks from the bottom of the door. I tightened all of the screws in the door,inner side, the hinge, and the latch or door lock. No help! Is it possible that the door seal needs to be replaced? Thank you. John
ANSWER Hi John. Feel the inner door glass at the 6:00 position. Under there it is possible that there may be some lint or scum that has stuck to the glass and not allowing the door to seal correctly. Wipe this glass circumference totally dry. Then look carefully at the same area of the door boot part # 4986ER0001C. It may have a nick or gash that allows the water to leak. If the unit is over loaded it will allow clothes to bunch upon in the boot area and possibly rip the boot if there were anything left in pants pockets. Thank You.
