Hello; I have a GE Front Load washer and seem


You can't repair the seal, but you can replace it with a new one for under $130 if you do the replacement yourself. You can order it online or from a local appliance shop, as prices vary slightly from place to place. I suggest www.searpartsdirect.com as they usually have the part in stock and you can get it shipped to you anywhere in the US without having to run all around trying to find one locally, etc.

The tub gasket (door seal) is part number #WH08X10022 with a new substitution part #WH08X10036. However, since each model can be slightly different, depending on the serial number which denotes when it was manufactured, you might want to confirm that the above gasket is the correct one for your particular washing machine.

I'd suggest you call the folks at Sears Parts Direct at 1-800-252-1698 and give them your complete model number AND serial number before you start in on the repair, so you can be sure you have the correct substitution bellows gasket.

It's a relatively easy repair, all you need to do is remove the spring retaining wire around the outer edge of the bellows gasket, just peel it back at the edge to see it. Now locate the locking loop by going around the rim. Once you find the locking loop, you can remove it using a couple pairs of small needle nose pliers as they make it easier to get off.

Once you've done that, you'll see the locking plate that holds the back side of the bellows gasket onto the outer wash tub. Remove those fasteners and you can get the bellows off and start in on putting the new bellows onto the washer, just reversing the order you used in the removal process.

Here's a line drawing that shows the exploded view of the tub section, with the gasket (item #306). Just take your time removing the old gasket so you remember what you're doing and when installing the new gasket so as not to rip or tear it in the process. I'd also suggest you let the gasket relax for a good 4-5 hours (to get the kinks and folds out of it from the packing box) before you do the installation.

WASHING MACHINGE NEEDS A NEW DOOR SEAL


Yes, this is a relatively easy repair for the DIY'er to do themselves. With your brand and model number, you can easily determine what the part number is the bellows gasket to replace your damaged one. Typically the gasket costs less than $130 and you'll save at least another $150 in service tech fees by doing it yourself.

Go to www.searspartsdirect.com and click on the Find A Part link and enter in your Model number and it'll bring up a couple of links for your washer. You'll want to click on the "front panel and door" or the "tub and motor" link to see the line drawing and parts list for your washer.

Look for the bellows gasket and that's the part you'll need to fix your washer.

Here's how to undertake the repair:

I need help in installing a door bellow on a GE front load washer.


You need to provide the model number as GE has several different versions of the front load washers. But here's the basics for most front load washers.

Basically, you should be able to remove the outer lip of the door bellows by rolling back the edge from the cabinet. Once you done that, slowly go around the gasket until you find the connector. The connector can usually be removed with a small pair of needle nose pliers by simply unhooking the locking hook from the loop side.

Once you've done that you can pull and push the edge of bellows off and into the cabinet and start looking for the hose clamp fastener that holds the other edge of the bellows onto the outer tub. Usually a 1/4 inch or 5/16 nut driver will be needed to loosen the hose clamp and once done, you'll be able to remove the old bellows and the clamps. Pay attention as to the placement of the water inlet, on the bellows, as the new one will need to be place at the same location during the reinstalltion.

Be careful when installing the new bellows, especially when slipping the gasket over the water inlet port, so as not to tear it. Reverse the process and retighten the hose clamp and pull ther outer edge of the bellows over the cabinet edge and reinstall the wire retainer.

Check your work and you should be all set!

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!
