I noticed water leaking out the door toward the bottom. When I open the door I can see moisture as high as the screws near the hinge area, so I think it is coming from that area . I cleaned the entire grey rubber thingy and examined it with a flashlight. I cannot see any cracks or holes. Is it possible it is coming from something else, or do you think the grey thing needs replaced. Also if it is that, is it very hard to replace??
thanks

<<<When I open the door I can see moisture as high as the screws near the hinge area, so I think it is coming from that area>>>

***********************

Possible leaking from the DETERGENT DISPENSER area.
Remove the DRAWER from the Dispenser---examine the HOUSING for debris (such as a cap from a bleach bottle). Remove any obstruction found.

Can also be *suds*.
It's important to use the correct type & amount of detergent.
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

I cleaned it and it is still leaking. I ran it with the drawer out, and it looks like the water is not exiting the drain fast enough. How can I clean that drain out??
thanks

Unplug washer.

Remove 2 silver-colored screws at the rear of the TOP COVER.

Grasp both sides of the Top Cover and slide rearward about an inch or two. Lift up cover.

Locate the Dispenser Assy Hose at the front of the tub.

Disconnect hose and remove debris.

Re-install & test washer.
