SOURCE: change rubber gasket

Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversable, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everthing. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. We used strong vice grips and much struggling and sweat, and #@*&%!&@ and finally got it on without damage to the new gasket. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.

SOURCE: Inner drum of my 7

Hi there!

I would say it is the rear drum bearing which needs replacement. This is what supports the load of the entire drum. The seal is just a water seal.

The good news is that it's a bosch, and replacements are easily available. You are lucky to get 7 years use without problems. Cheaper models give up after 12 months!

Check online for spares under the model number, or have it replacd by a local technician. It is the main drum bearing you need.

If this assists to a solution, Please take a moment to rate as fixya! Thanks.

SOURCE: fabric softener dispenser won't drain the fabric softener.

Not sure if you already did this, but try pulling the face plates off inside the dispencer and take it to the sink and run very hot water into the "stand pipe" that projects off the back of the face plate to make sure they are clear and no old crusty products are in the hole.. Then put them back in and push down hard and make sure they are fully seated.
If the plates are loose and not seated or clogged, there will be little or no siphon effect to draw the fluids out of the dispenser. At least thats how it seems to work
Also, if you pull the top off the washer, there is an adjustment on top of the dispenser to adjust the dispensing ratios I believe.
I just did that procedure the other day on my machine and the wife said it works good now.
Let me know it it works for you, I was wondering if it was just a coincidence.

SOURCE: we are getting an error code ddo on our wahser?

The DDO error is telling you that the detergent door is open. This error occurs when the detergent door has not latched properly when the unit is started.

There is a sensor that is dependant on a magnet, that is attached to the door, to trip it and send the proper door closed signal to the control oard. If this magnet comes off, or loose the signal will not be sent to the control board, and the error code will be displayed.

Now for the bad news. The magnet is in such a position that a considerable amount of labor is required to replace it.

Unless you are mechanicly inclined and handy with a box of tools I do not recommend that you attempt this repair. It is very involved and is not a DIY repair. It is best to let a tech handle this repair. An approximate price range for this repair is $175.00 to $275.00, or more depending on where you live.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Tumble Action washer won't complete the

Had the same problem and fixed with ease. The problem is with the door lock. There is a secondary locking mechanism that kicks in for the final spin due to the high speed. When the secondary lock goes bad the washer will not do the final spin. The replacement part is under $40 @ AppliancePartsPros.com .

It will not let the water out or spin I think it is the water pomp how do I change the pump I have a frigidaire tumble action washer


First try pressing the start and cancel buttons for about 3 seconds and see if there is an error code, then you can troubleshoot from there....Have you checked the drain lint trap? It is inside the accordian looking drain hose that attaches the drum to the pump. It may be clogged. Use a wet/dry shop vac to remove as much water as possible. Unplug the machine. then remove front panel and remove clamps to check if it is clogged. Hopefully that is the problem!

Water Will not drain after cycle


The filter for the drain is located under the drum assembly. It is inside the rubber cover between the drum and the pump. It has 3 clamps that you will need to remove, than you can get at the filter inside the rubber housing. It will be clogged with coins, or lint from the wash, and once this is cleaned, the machine will work like new.
