How to Replace rubber seal on front load washer

The rubber seal on your washer and similar front loading washers is a relatively easy repair. The seal is held onto the front washer panel and the fixed inside washer drum with separate spring-loaded rings that are reusable. So, don't throw them away! You need to remove the front ring from the front panel before you can remove the front panel. With the ring removed the gasket should be pushed into the washer; noting any drain holes, so that you can reinstall the new gasket in the same orientation. Once the outer ring is removed and the front panel is out of the way, you will have access to the ring holding the gasket to the drum. After the inside ring is removed, the gasket should pull off the fixed washer drum. You are now ready to install the new replacement gasket.

The amount of disassembly of the front of the washer is your option if it interferes with the installation. The door is usually heavy and it is useful to remove it from the front panel. Usually, a couple screws holds it in place. Removal of the front panel may also involve removal of the top of the washer and moving the control panel out of the way so that you can access the screws holding the front panel onto the frame of the washer. The locking latch may have to be temporarily removed but can be left in place if you simply push the front panel out of the way to have access to the inside gasket ring. It is useful to take pictures of each stage of the disassembly process to make sure your reinstall everything as it was.

Installation of the gasket starts with reattaching it to the fixed washer drum flange and then replacing the spring-loaded ring to hold it in place. Make sure the gasket orientation matches the original position. After the gasket is attached to the drum, you can now reinstall the front panel. If you unscrewed the latch mechanism when you took off the panel, now is the time to reinstall it as it can be manually held in place behind the gasket. The door can usually remain off the front panel until installation of the gasket onto the front panel is complete. Now bring the gasket forward and reinstall it on the flange of the front panel; secure it in place with the spring-loaded ring. Your gasket is now reinstalled. Simply reinstall the door and your repair is complete.

Tools needed include a blade screwdriver to help pry the rings off the gasket seal and one or two specialty screwdrivers (usually Torx or Philips) to remove the front panel.

I found my broken lid switch and its two plastice pieces i am not sure how to put it back together and fix it. Or can i buy a new one and then install it? Also i dont know how to take the top off too look...

I believe you're referring to the lid safety switch. Do not operate your machine without this safety switch! The switch / wiring harness are not very hard to install... here's how-

1. Remove console, depending on vintage, there should be a couple of screws that will allow you to rotate the console up and back.
2. Remove 2 gold clips at rear of top. These clips are the only thing that retain the top / lid / cabinet
3. Unplug lid switch harness (small white connector at rear of top)
4. Rotate the cabinet up a few inches at the rear and pull it straight off. The top / lid / cabinet will come off as a single unit. The entire lid switch and harness are connected under the top w/ a couple of screws and a few spring retainers.
5. Buy replacement parts at a local appliance repair shop, including a new striker (the part that pushes the switch down when you close the lid).
6. Reinstall everything reverse from above. When you rotate the cabinet back on, make sure you have the front edge under the base channel and push inward on the rear corners to engage the cabinet on the rear base tabs.

Good luck.

GE #WHDVH626 Front Loading Machine - Door gasket Leaks, Need to replace gasket, HOW?

Remove the top panel, the control panel, the toe panel, and the front panel to replace the door gasket. Disconnect power to the washer before servicing to avoid electric shock.

Remove the top panel by removing the top cover and the three 7-mm hex-head screws that attach the rear of the top panel to the cabinet. Remove the top cover by removing the three Phillips-head screws that hold it in place then insert a putty knife blade or similar tool along the top seam between the cover and the control panel. Lightly tap the cover off rearward; slide the top panel rearward then lift it off the cabinet.

Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops; push down the locking tab, and then pull the dispenser drawer all the way out. Once the drawer is out, remove the Phillips-head screw from the recess of the drawer opening.

Remove the four Phillips-head screws that attach the control panel to the control panel cover. Release the tab on the right side of the control panel from the bracket inside the cabinet.

Lift the top edge of the control panel to release the three tabs that hold its top in place. Push the control panel towards the left, then release the side tab.

Label the wires and mark the connectors matching the wires before disconnecting the wires from the control panel.

Remove the three Phillips-head screws at the bottom of the toe panel holding it to the cabinet, then pull the toe panel down and off the cabinet.

Open the washer door, then remove the three Phillips-head screws holding the door switch and lock assembly to the front panel.

The door gasket is held to the lip of the door opening by a wire and a spring hidden in the fold of gasket. Grasp the wire at the spring location using a pair of needle-nose pliers and stretch the spring to clear the gasket, and then remove the wire and spring assembly. Peel off the door gasket from the lip of the door opening into the drum.

Remove the four Phillips-head screws that secure the front panel on its four corners to the cabinet. Lift up the front panel then remove it from the two hooks and all the way off the cabinet.

Pull down the top of the gasket, and then remove the nozzle from the gasket. Remove the gasket from the water inlet pipe, and then loosen the 7-mm bolt that tightens the wire holding the gasket to the outer tub lip. Take note of the position of the gasket, and then remove it and the wire from the lip of the outer tub.

Install the new gasket into the lip of the outer tub aligning the notch in the gasket with the arrow located on the top of the lip of the outer tub, and then secure it with the wire and the bolt. Do not over tighten the wire with the bolt. Allow a gap of about 1.25 inches between the ends of the wire. Over tightening the wire may tear the gasket.

Insert the nozzle into the gasket ensuring that the washer is placed on the outside and that the nozzle is aligned with the dent on the inside of the gasket. Insert the water inlet pipe into the gasket, and then put the gasket inside the drum.

Reinstall the front panel back into position on the hooks then secure it to the cabinet with the four Phillips-head screws.

Slide the toe panel up into the cabinet then secure it with the three Phillips-head screws.

Reconnect the wires to the control panel. Snap the control panel back into the cabinet, and then secure it with the screw at the recess of the drawer opening.

Slide the top panel back in place then secure its rear with the three 7mm hex-head screws to the cabinet. Reinstall the top cover and secure it the three Phillips-head screws.

How do I replace the water intake valve on my whirlpool top loader.

Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid, Kenmore, Roper, Estate, after 1985
• The valve will be mounted to the back of the washer with two screws. However, you must remove the valve from inside the washing machine, and this requires you remove the entire washer cabinet, which consists of the top, front and sides.
• Remove the two screws in the lower corners of the control panel.
• Lift the control panel up high enough so it stays up and back.
• Disconnect the wire harness connector.
• Using a flathead screwdriver, snap out the two gold-colored spring clips at the top of the cabinet on the left and right sides.
• The cabinet will now lift up at the back. Pull the cabinet up 10-12 inches and then slide it forward 2 inches.
• Remove the cabinet completely and set it aside.
• The valve will be on the right side of the washer at the back. It’s the device to which the water fill hoses are attached.
• Label the wires from the valve and remove them.
• Remove the water feed tube(s) from the valve.
• Remove the screws holding the valve to the back panel.
• Install the new valve in the reverse order.
• Reinstall the cabinet. (Note: As you follow this procedure, do not force the cabinet in any way. When done properly, the cabinet will go back together very smoothly.) First, tilt the cabinet toward you 10-12 inches while you “walk” the cabinet back onto the lower frame of the washer. (This will be easier if you have the washer lid open so you can see inside the cabinet at the same time.) The front edge of the cabinet slides underneath the base frame, and the sides of the cabinet rest on top of the base frame.
• When the cabinet is resting on the frame squarely, check to be sure the back of the washer is aligned with the cabinet. There are two plastic strips attached to the back of the washer that must line up with the sides of the cabinet as you set the cabinet down.
• Reinstall the two spring clips at the top.
• Reattach the wire harness connector.
• Rotate the control panel back down and reinstall the two screws.
• Flush out the water fill hoses.
• Reattach the water lines.
• Turn on the water.
• Check for and correct any leaks.
• Restore power and test.
Hope this helped you and best wishes.

If it's stackable, you'll want to start by removing the dryer.
Open the door and remove the outer bellow spring around the bellow to release it from the cabinet lip. At this point lean the machine back to give more space between the drum and the cabinet.
Remove the kickplate for easier access and to visually check for leaks later.
At the top/right of the bellows (close to the tub) loosen the bellow to tub clamp and pull out the bellow.
Install the new bellow starting at the top by aligning the marks. Work your way around until bellows is properly seated snug against the tub.
Replace the tub to bellow clamp and tighten it (make sure the bellow stays snug against the tub while tightening the clamp). Once in place, lay the machine back to level and reinstall the front of the bellows to the cabinet with the outer bellow spring clamp.
With towels handy (just in case), let the machine fill and agitate for a few minutes and check for water leaks. If all is well, re-install the kickplate and wash some laundry.
Good luck!

Frigidaire gltf1670a front door seal instalation

Open the door and remove either the outer bellows spring (newer models) or use a putty knife to scrape the glue around the bellows to release it from the cabinet lip. At this point lean the machine back to give more space between the drum and the cabinet.
Remove the kickplate for easier access and to visually check for leaks later.
Starting at the top, pull on the bellows firmly (close to the tub) until it comes out of the groove. Once it comes off you will see the bellows spring.
Install the new bellows starting at the top by aligning the marks (arrow on the bellows top and arrow on the tub lip). Work your way around until bellows is properly seated snug against the tub.
Here it gets tricky, it might be easier with an extra pair of hands but there's less room. Some bellows kits contain spacers/plugs which will help to "hold" the spring as you stretch it back in place. Work from the top down on both sides at once. Either use the spacers/plugs or have someone hold the spring in place as you work your way around.
Once in place, lay the machine back to level and reinstall the front of the bellows to the cabinet. Either re-install the outer bellows spring or re-glue the bellows to the cabinet. If this is not done you risk a water leak.
With towels handy (just in case), let the machine fill and agitate for a few minutes and check for water leakage. If all is well, make sure machine is still level by try to rock it diagonally from the top (if it rocks, lower the leg that is lifting). Re-install the kickplate and wash some laundry!

  • remove spring clips holding motor to gearbox shaft, note where they go for reinstall. there may be a lock screw in the top right clip.
  • heave ******* motor, to separate the coupling
  • remove coupling halves from gearbox shaft and motor shaft and discard.

  • rotate gearbox coupling, 1 up 2 down
  • rotate motor coupling, 2 up 1 down
  • install rubber shock pad on gearbox coupling
  • install motor on shock pad
  • reinstall spring clips and lock screw if fitted (bottom first, rock the motor on rubber shock mount to ease spring clip installation)
  • rotate motor shaft to align with pump input
  • install pump on motor shaft
  • install spring clips and lock screw if fitted
reinstall body in reverse order

it takes less time to do the repair than it takes to type this
