Whirlpool Duet Washer Door Boot Seal Replacement

It’s a common occurrence that the door boot seal on your front loading Whirlpool Duet washing machine will have a bad moldy smell. It’s due to the moisture that gets trapped into the boot seal and when the door is closed when not in use it gets moldy. That’s why it’s really important to wipe down the boot seal after every load and to leave the door cracked open when not in use.
