Customer Question
Thank you for being...

Thank you for being there for me I have a maytag front-load washing machine model MHWE201YWOO SERIAL # HL21762234 TYPE H32-A THE main door seal appears to be leaking

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

MHWE201YWOO IS THE MODEL ## I guess it to be 7 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I don't know how complex is it to replace the main vinyl/rubber door seal?

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Pearl, if you can help me with the leak I will be most gratified

Here is a video that shows how to replace the gasket, the washer in the video is not your exact model so there a little difference in appearance but its basically the exact same procedure to replace yours as the one in the video. click here for video
