SOURCE: My GE front load washer

We believe a shirt sleeve was not fully in our GE GCVH6260 front loading washer. With the twisting and turning the shirt pulled our rubber door seal into the washer, stretching the seal. The rubber door seal is formally called a; "front door boot gasket". (image of washer type linked below)

http://di1.shopping.com/images1/pi/e8/78/fb/28130826-177x150-0-0.jpg

We contacted our local GE store and picked up the replacement boot gasket (part# WH08X10036), which cost about $155 plus tax CDN.

Please Note; I did not remove the front face of the washer..
1. I cut away the old rubber ring as I did not have the "carny hands" needed to loosen the inner ring nut and bolt.
2. I then used a mini hack saw to cut the screw in half (careful not to cut anything else).
3. Once the old rings were removed, I filled the bath tub / laundry tub up with very hot water and submierged the new boot gasket into the water for five minutes.
4. Once heated, I quickly lined up the ring to the proper positioning and was able to put the ring on the washer with little effort.
5. As the ring cooled in place, I put the inner metal ring back into the appropriate groove. As I could not reach in an put a proper nut and bolt into place, I opted to use two thick zip ties to hold the ring in place, pulling it tighter with my pliers on the end and snipping the excess legging off after.
6. The outer ring was relatively easy to put on afterwards.

Special thanks to my pops, Warren McDonald for his great advise on heating the ring to put it in place!

SOURCE: lg front load washer leaking from bottom of machine

I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
  3. Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
  4. If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
  5. Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
  6. Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
  7. Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
  8. Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
  9. Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
  10. Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
  11. Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
  12. There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
  13. There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
  14. Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order

SOURCE: My whirlpool front loader washer leaks water

Check the rubber boot just inside the door. You have to push the drum back slightly and rub your fingers around the entire boot. I had a similar problem and a key had fallen out of a pocket and cut into that boot. The leak would run out of the damaged boot then come out the bottom onto the floor. I purchased a new boot and it took me about 30 min to install it. The problem was solved. If the rubber boot is fine then the over soap thing is probably your problem.

I have a Miele W4840 front load washer and there is water leaking from the door. I've checked the seal and it doesn't seem to be damaged, but there is a definite leak. Please advise.


first make sure your detergent drawer is not popping open. water will run out from beneath the drawer, run over to the top of the door, run down the door, and then straight down to the floor. If you are not leaking out of the detergent drawer, the next thing down is the bottom of the glass door. look at the glass where it contacts the door seal at the bottom. It should be clean and smooth. Most likely you will find lint, hair, and soap residue. that needs to be cleaned off. any surface imperfections will cause a slow drip or trickle of water to come out of the lowest part of the door. If that is fine, and it is still leaking, open the cover to the drain pump on the bottom right of the front of the machine. Make sure that drain pump filter is tight. run the machine with that little drain access door open and see if you are leaking from there. If none of the above helps, and you are still getting water leaking from the door, miele has designed a new clamping ring for the door seal. Call them and make arrangements to have it replaced.

Hey there, i got a miele w4800 front load washer that stopped working all of the sudden. The buzzer is going crazy and the drain and intake fault lights are flashing. Any ideas of how i could fix this...


You have water in the bottom pan of the machine. grab it at the back and tilt it forward. the water will run out and it will start working again, but you will probably need a concertina hose. This is the hose that connects the detergent compartment to the wash drum.

Miele WT945 leaks water from internal drain


Hi
If it is the bottom hose on the condenser box leaking.
This is a vent.
It is most likely the condenser box is blocked with fluff and will require cleaning or replacement. I imagine the appliance is not drying very well if at all
