Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
I replaced the tub assembly on my Frigidaire Gallery Front Load washer because the bearing was shot. I replaced the whole assembly, which included a new stainless steel drum. To remove the old assembly from the washer, I had to detach the rubber inside the front door that attaches to the assembly and seals it. It appears to have been held on there by a round, hoop spring. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to re-attach the rubber seal to the new tub assembly and then put the spring back on to hold it. There is an awful lot of rubber there and I don't know where it all goes.

Hitchhiker, you don't have to remove the front of the washer. The original boot was glued in areas around the door. They came out with a new design because of water leakage on the bottom. The new kit, part number 5303937187 comes with a spring that holds it on to the panel. You can do one or two things, if you don't have the leaking problem, glue the boot back on. Or you can order the new kit, it comes with instructions and replace the whole boot. Check it out, it might be covered under service flash #26-758BR. In any event this job can be done by leaning the washer back against the wall to make room between the tub and front panel. You are going to need an assist, it's better with 2 people.

common problem with that style machine. Try running a cup of vinegar thru te wash cycle. The acid from the vinegar will break it down. It may take more than one cycle if its really bad. Once the smell is gone leave the door slightly ajar to prevent it from happenig again.
