Hello, my washer is leaking from what appears the front and water is dripping down into the drawer below. We only notice this with heavier loads like towels. Is it likely the bellow is the concern given that it doesn't leak with lighter loads? Thanks for your advice!
For model number WFW8300SW04
Hello Cassie, thank you for your question. If there is any leak from the front of the door the bellow is the culprit. It may only happen on larger or heavier loads now, but will probably progress to leaking all the time. I would suggest replacing the Bellow - Gray WPW10111435. Good luck with your repair!

Our machine is dripping water on the inside. When you remove the bottom panel there is a cement counterweight and the water is dripping down the back of the counter weight into the base of the machine. Is this the part that will solve that leak?
For model number WFW8300SW00
Hi Bill, Thank you for your question. You would likely have to try and figure out where your leak is coming from. It could be coming from your bellow but it could also be coming from the tun gasket. I would suggest letting your appliance dry out a bit. Maybe open it up so that you can see the inside. Take a little bit of water, pour it over your bellow and see if there is a leak. If there is not, pour some of the water into your tub and spin it around for a minute or so. See if there is a leak. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

My washer boot is black with mold. I saw the replacement part number: Wpw10111435; but i didn't see the number that is listed on my washer (8540903). The closest was 8540954. The serial number of mine is: Hlt1677748 (about 11 years old. I bought the floor model when i moved here.) please let me know if this indeed is the appropriate boot for my old washer. Many thanks. Kimme

Hi there, we have a Kenmore front loading washer that leaks a small amount of water into the metal frame at the bottom. I removed the kickplate and noticed that the water is dripping from the backside of the bottom concrete counterweight. I also noticed that the water only seems to drip during the high spin portion of the washing cycle. During normal agitation, there seems to be no leakage or maybe just holdover drips from the high spin phase. Is replacement of the door bellow the most likely solution or could there be another faulty part? I ask because i had previously replaced the door bellow about six months ago and have noticed no leaks until recently. Thank you!
For model number Kenmore 110.47511702
Hello Alexander, Thank you for your inquiry. You can pull the bellow out and check for any rips or tears. Check the drain hoses and tub to pump hose as well. The other parts that could cause this issue are the drain pump, the water inlet valve and the tub assembly. Hope this helps!

Hi, my washer leaks and the drips seem to come from the bottom from behind the front panel. I believe it's the boot but I was wondering why it leaks more when I run an empty load. When I do a clean the washer cycle and there are no clothes it leaks a large volume of water. Could this still be the boot leaking?
For model number WFW8300SW02
Hello Jason, thank you for your question. We have researched the model you have provided, and we would suggest the Washer Bellow, part number PS11748353 or the Water level Switch, part number PS11749322. To test the water level switch, unplug the washer and remove the switch. You can test it with a multimeter. Set your multimeter to the lowest ohms of resistance and test your switch. If it does not read any continuity, then your switch is indeed faulty. We hope this helps.

Water leak from bottom of door.
I discovered water leaking from the bottom of the door on our Kenmore front load washer. I did a little self diagnosis from the internet and found that this seems to be a common problem for front load Kenmore washers and that the ususal suspect is the large rubbery bellows. I examined the bellows on my washer and although I didn't find anything wrong with it, I couldn't find any other likely causes. I shopped around and found PartSelect to be the cheapest for the replacement part. Removal is easy by removing the lower front panel with three small screws on the bottom front, then remove the very top panel and then the top front control panel and finally the door panel. the bellows are actually held in place with a spring loop on the outer and a screw tightener on the inner, both are fairly easy to remove and the bellows comes right off. For installation my best advice is to lube the bellows with a small amount of dishwashing soap in the groove that fits on the washer tub. This will help it slide into place and enables a small amount of sliding fine tuning once it is on. From there it is just a reverse of the removal.

My Epic Z is only three years old but started to leak at the bottom of the washer door for no obvious reason. Before replacing the bellow, I suggest you make sure the door latch is not loose and also make sure the star driver screws that secure the glass in the door are all snug (do not overtighten)
Since most people do not replace bellows for a living, I have great instructions for you to follow. I found the entire repair manual on the web.Just follow the repair instructions as written. Two other suggestions, use a very small amount of liquid diswasher soap to lubricate the bellow when fitting it over the washer drum assembly, makes life a lot easier. Second, get a second pair of hands to help you hold the bellow in place as you mount it or you will find yourself "chasing your tail". Bellow replacement and tightening the door and latch fixed the problem. Mom was happy :)...PS the buying experience from PartSelect , part delivery, speed was perfect!

Bellow was cut on the bottom, leaked.
The top panel was removed, right side pulls out, left side has a lint drawer that pulls out exposing a phillips head screw. The bottom panel is removed by taking three screws out of the bottom, then the panel pulls down. Remove the additional screws (4) holding the door panel on. Loosen the band (phillipshead screw) holding the bellow on and pull the bellow off the channel. It also pulls off the door opening channel. Pull the new piece over the channels, tighten the band and reverse the removal procedure.

water leak
Remove outer retaining ring by pulling spring clip located at bottom of the seal. Push the bellows into the tub. Loosen the inner retaining ring clip (located on the left, facing the front of the machine) with a phillips screwdriver and guide the ring out. Remove the old bellows. Put in the new part with the tab on top and the drain holes on the bottom. Reinstall the rings. Kind of tedious but not complicated.

replaced leaking bellows
I followed the description on this site, my machine was slightly different, but the basic procedure was the same. The tip to apply a small amount of the liquid soap to the bellows was useful to ease installation. Make sure the holes in the bottom of the bellows align with the drain in the bottom of the washer. The portion of the bellows that attaches to the main body via the adjustable clamp can be done by a single person with two hands. The portion that attaches to the front panel with the spring-wire band is a four hand job. Position the bellows, attach / position the wire-band with the spring portion on the bottom. Starting at the top get your helper to hold it in position, using needle nose pliers stretch the last bit of the wire-band into final position.

Bellow was torn at the door causing water to leak
I would recommend to remove the front loader door first. Then remove the clamp that holds the front of the bellow to the washer, Remove the top panel and then the front panel. Remove the band that holds the back of the bellow to the washer. Reverse the process to install the bellow. It helps to apply a little soapy water to make it easy to put the bellow on the track for both the front and back. It also helps to have four hands. Hope you have a friend or significant other.

Water leaked from front bellows. (Door gasket)
Easier if you block up front feet on 2x4 blocks. remove bottom front panel. Remove detergent dispenser tray. Remove top front panel. On door remove large round retainer clamp to bellows. (Pop off with screwdriver.) Remove door. Remove inner bellows clamp. Use phillips screwdriver to loosen it. If the input water filler hose is in the way, pull it out, but don't forget to put it back on or a flood will ensue!! Replace by doing everything in reverse order.
