Rubber Gasket Torn

Hi, we have an LG front load washer/dryer and the rubber gasket between the door and the drum is torn. The model is an LG WD1481RD. Just wanted to know if you know how to change these. We have a replacement gasket on order but are not sure if its a big job to change. There appears to be a spring securing a metal ring which is holding it on the front of the machine. I'm not sure if the machine needs to be opened up to secure the the gasket on the drum. Hopefully not.

Thanks in advance.

IT IS EASY :
1- IF YOU SUCCEED TO TAKE OLD gasket YOU CAN DO IT FOR THE NEW ONE
2- IT IS JUST A RUBER PEICE SO YOU CAN
3- LIKE YOU SAID a {spring securing OR CLAMP } USING A SMALL TOOL {SCREWDRIVER OR BLAYER } TO DISCONNECT THIS SECURING PIECE IN FRONT THEN
4- FLAP THE RUBBER TO INSIDE THE DRUM THEN
5- THERE IS ANOTHER SECURING PIECE HOLD THIS RUBBER WITH DRUM INSERT YOUR TOOL AND DISENGAGE THEN
6- NOTICE THE TRIANGLE IN THE RUBBER PIECE
IT IS THE MARK TO CONNECT AGAIN IN RIGHT WAY OR YOU CAN MARK BY A PEN
7- REVERS THE MANAR
YOU WILL REACH
GOOD JOB

I have LG WD -1050F Intellowasher 7kg front load washer, while operating time getting water leakage under front door. need solution.


Hi,

The problem is due to the rubber boot is been torn that is causing you the leak. You have to check the rubber boot for leaks by removing the clamp assembly that secures the rubber boot to the outer lip of the door opening. Peel off the rubber boot then inspect it for any holes where it may be leaking. The rubber boot in your washer can be accessed only when you remove the front panel. This requires the removal first of the top panel then the console. Also check your inlet hoses on the outside of machine, also check the connections inside the panel in back.


Thank you !!

Torn front grey colored rubber seal, is this repairable?This rubber seal is covered with mold


These seals are not fun to replace for the average person. There will probably be a spring clamp around the front of the gasket which you can remove with a good pair of needle nose pliers. The back side will be held in with another spring or a screw clamp. If you install a new gasket just work from one side clockwise feeding it around the drum with your fingers. This can be a VERY frustrating process. If you have the extra money I would probably advise just calling a tech out. You will probably be looking at around 200 for the repair. Maybe more depending on the service call and labor.

To avoid the smell when you get a new gasket leave the door cracked between uses. You can also just run an empty load with bleach in it on the highest temp cycle with an extra rinse. (Basically highest heat longest cycle) Once a month.

Hope this helps _MJ_
