    Its not leaking, I just think the tub is not being stablized by whatever it is that stablizes it during spin

  • Toni Pugh Aug 01, 2013

    It looks like the tub is hanging lower on the bottom left corner when I look at it thru the front door

SOURCE: My front load ge washer model GCVH6260F is leaking

the bellow or gasket may need to be replaced. this is a common problem with front loaders as the bellow can be pierced by anything that may be in or even on your clothes. I would visually inspect every inch of the front bellow to see if there is a TEAR or PIN HOLE.

New bellows $150 plus fitting so I use a Bike repair it and used the glue to glue a piece of bicycle tube to the inside of the seal to cover the chip by 1 cm either side and trimmed to the same height as the seal lip.
I then placed a little bathroom sanitized silicon sealant over the repair within the chip, wet down with soapy water on the door glass in the chip area and shut the door. Carefully wipe of any excess with wet finger and repeat. Open the door and let it all cure.

Kenmore 3.5 cu ft front load quiet tumble action washer. Will not stop cycling, leaks, and shakes violently when spinning.


The shaking could be due to a defective drum support bearing. The shaking also could have caused the door seal to fail, resulting in the leak.

Door on ge front loader washer leaks, door gasket is fine. Could it be the lock not working properly


Yes it could be the door lock not pulling the door in enough to make the seal. Solution... Remove covers and with door pressed in hard, ( You may need help ), adjust the lock mechanism to make seal. Put lock-tite on the threads after it works for you. This will prevent the shaking of the washer from losening of the nuts again.

I have front loader MFW9700 Maytag washer. Water


Check the door seal for tears and the drain boot from tub to drain boot for anything that might have put a hole in like a piece of metal from an under wire bra which front loads will spin so fast that the wires come out of the bras.

Doesn't spin the clothes dry on the final spin but spins at high revolutions without a load of clothes


I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....
