Wfmc 3200 fixed E04 problem, where does the gasket go?
I took off the black cap in the front, removed a sock, and the E04 problem was fixed. However, a black rubber gasket (about 1 1/2" in diameter) came off in the process & not really sure exactly where/ how it goes. Also, despite having tightened the black cap & put it on properly with the bottom indicator in the right place, the machine leaks a lot from the cap during drainage.

there is small hole in the cover you need to push a small screwdriver or ice pick works in the hole and then turn clockwise till it comes off.
But there will be some water come out so if you have a wet dry shop vac then use it on the end of the drain hose to remove most of the water then keep it handy when you take the plug out there will still be some water come out and you should be able to clena out the trap area
Did you remove the complete front panel to remove gasket? If not, you are going to struggle to get new one on and refit the inner spring. Usually if you add a few drops of washing up liquid to the inner crease of the door gasket it will help.
start on the door side of the appliance put the top of the circle in first this should allow you to stretch the spring a little to make it go on its a pain and it kills the tips of your fingers try not to overstrech it because it will fall off all the time
the pump gears could be stripped or clogged with soap residue including the line from the pump to include the drain hose itself. I took the back of my machine off after cleaning the pump twice to find the reservoir full of a brown soap gunk/sludge. there is also a small rubber tube that runs from this reservoir back into the drum which was plugged shut with the same gunk. this thick soap residue can damage the pump motor or slow the drainage system to get the E 04 warning. I cleaned the gray drain hose out with the garden hose and was amazed at the sludge that game out. When the machine would run on the drain cycle we would also get a sewage smell that I thought was coming form the drain trap but turned out to be caused by the sludge in the pump. After cleaning the system and now using no more that a tablespoon of soap it works great & the cloths are clean.
it is very hard to get the ring on front load washers, it is much easier to remove the top. bottom and the front control panel then the door and support panel. now you have access. some times you have to remove the counter weight in some models before putting on the ring. if you can do it without removing these items you are very very good.
