Front load Amana washer leaking from inside of door!


My Amana front load washer has water in the door ring, which drips down the outside front of the door seam, during and after the wash cycle. I watched several cycles and determined the water is indeed coming from inside the door ring around the glass (it holds quite a bit of water). I tried tightening all the screws in the door but they were all tight. I have not taken apart the door yet. Is there a gasket around the door glass which needs replacing, and how would I do this?

can't see how there would be any way for water to get into the door itself, it probably just appears that is where it is leaking. if it is leaking out the gasket and running down the front it would appear to be leaking from the door itself.
No, there is no seal between the glass and the plastic part of the door.

Don't know about Amanas, but many diswashers develop leaks where the water actually comes from inside the door. The LG brand is infamous for this.

thats because there are openings for vents and detergent cups in a dishwasher door, there are no such openings in a front load washer.

My bad. I didn't notice the OP meant washer, not DISHwasher.
