Not a terrible job but will require a little patience. you ll need to remove the door((2) screws in hinge and 2 more screws on oppisite side) the front U-shaped panel can then be removed. youll see a few 5/16 screws to remove the front cover adn release the main top . 4 screws from inside the corners of soap dispenser need to be removed.
The door seal itself is simply "snapped into the front cover, grab hold and pull it off. the inner connection point is done with a cable and a spring you can peel it off with little problem.
Now for the fun, youll need to set the new boot'seal around the edge of the tub you can walk it around like changing a bike tire on hte rim, it will be tight( a third and fourth hand may prove helpful)) after setting the boot, wrap the cable around and connect spring( a little hint:: SLIGHTLY, i repeat SLIGHTLY stretch outh the spring to lessen the tension SLIGHTLY, then hook one end on cable, and stretch the 2 pieces together(this is where the pateince coomes in , sometimes it goes reall smooth and its ont in 30secs, othertimes ittl take you 10 min of pullin, beforeit locks tegether) afer thats on simply reassembe

GE Profile front loader washing machine is leaking front of door, believe the problem is the rubber washer ring, however can this be replaced?


Hello, this is usually the door seal, most machine incorporate a one piece combined door seal and outer drum seal(often just called a DOOR GASKET), the door seal are put in on the front panel first in the factory, then the drum assembly is put in and the seal pushed over the outer drum. This means a lot of stripping down has to be done just to replace the drum to the door seal.
Thanks

Water is leaking from the door. Do I need to replace the door gasket?


HI, first, make sure there isn't anything preventing the actual door seal from forming a complete seal around the door frame. this can be caused be a creased section of the seal, or a piece of debris. if the seal is free of the above stated issues, in should be replaced asap.

I would also inspect the door alignment as well. if the door is slightly mis-aligned, this will prevent the seal from making contact with the door frame in a appropriate manner, in return, causing a slight leak during the wash.
