First, remove the 2 screws that hold the bottom front kick-plate on and remove the plate. Look to see if any of the shocks have come loose or broke. Post back your results.

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.

Why is my whirlpool electric drying making a loud screeching sound


I know this is a late answer but you have bad bearings on the dryer. There is usually 1 on the back of the drum in the center. Its in 2 pieces, one is nickel coated and the other is hard plastic like material that holds the nickel piece. The other 2 are on the front of the drum on the top just out of sight. They attache to a lip on the front of the machine and the drum 'rides' on the bearings. These are usually about 3 inches long by 1/2 inch wide and 3/8 inch tall and are made of a hard plastic like material.

Change belt cleaner?


You have to move or remove the finisher, depending what finisher you have.
Open the door on the right side of the machine . It is about 4 inches high and 14 inches wide.
Open the front cover and move the black bar to the down position as if you were replacing a drum.
Then on the right side, you slide the transfer unit out about 4 or so inches. On the front of that unit there are 2 torx screws held together with a black plastic strip. Remove those 2 screws, remove and replace the cleaner.

How do I remove the drum to Frigidaire GLER642AS3?


Unplug the dryer.
Use a putty knife to push back the top lid catches about 2 inches in from the right and left sides, where the top meets the cabinet front.
Raise the lid to the back of the machine.
Disconnect the wires to the door switch.
Remove 2 screws on the inside top corners of the front panel on the right and left sides.
Reach in under the drum and remove the drive belt from the motor and pulley.
Grasp the rear center of the drum and pull up. It may take a little force.
Remove the drum out the front of the cabinet.

I have a toyota corolla 91. I can wobble the front tires by hand back and forth about 1 to 2 inches. When driving, the front tires wobble. Is this the front or back tie rods?, Do you need tools you...


Possible wheel bearing failure, ball joint failure or tie rod end failure. Does the wobble seem to be when tire is moved toward center of vehicle on top and bottom or front and back??

GE Profile dryer Model# DPSQ475ET4WW


You posted under a DPGT705EC and then a DPSQ475ET4WW, so I am going to guess you have the later one. If it has not been squeaking for an extended time you can get by with just changing the rear drum sleeve bearing (WE3X75). To do this, use a putty knife to push in on the 2 clips about two inches in from the sides at the seam where the front panel meet the dryer top, allowing top to swing up and back. Remove screw holding front panel to side panel near top just under where the top was. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom pegs. Swing to side (you don't have to remove wires). Pull drum forward about 6 inches. (you don't even have to remove the belt.) Change sleeve at center back of drum. Make sure to inspect the front drum support slides WE1M481dark ones and WE1M333 white ones (about 1/2 inch x 2.5 inch strips at the top of the front panel which support the front of the drum), as about the time the rear bearing goes, these may be wearing also, especially the one on the left side. You may have to contact GE to obtain an owner's manual (but there is nothing in them about how to service the dryer, just installation and settings, etc.) Parts can be obtained from just about any appliance service company or appliance retailer which does service in your area.

If you mean the inner drum - remove the agitator, pull off the sofetener cup and remove the 15mm bolt down inside to remove agitator, then secure inner drum to center bearing.
If you mean the outer drum, check the holding down springs visually, remove the front panel by inserting a flat blade approx 4" from each side at the front to release clips, then remove 2 small bolts to remove front panel.
Also check and replace drive belt, tilt machine backwards to gain access underneath.

Brown smudges on clothes


Take a look and see if the drum near the door moves up vertically. It shouldn't move more than 3/16ths of an inch. If it does, replace the upper felt seal/plastic slide. The upper seal that supports the front of the drum on the front of the dryer is worn out to the point that clothes can get stuck in the gap between the drum and the front of the machine. This leaves brown wedge marks on clothes. While it's apart, replace the lower felt seal as well.
