what causes the bellows on my kenmore washer to be ripped

i have a kenmore washer 11045981400 and noticed that it was leaking. also the 3 types of rinse options were on (skincare rinse, 2nd rinse, normal rinse), thus there was a high-pitched buzzing. upon closer inspection we noticed that the rubber rim (bellows) was ripped. we know we need to replace it but i have to know what could have caused the rip - i want to prevent it from happening. is it normal wear and tear? we bought the washer in may 2005. please advise, thanks!!!
