Need to replace front felt seal. how do you do that?
If the front felt seal is cut or worn out there is probably some thing else wrong too so while you have it apart check the 2 supports that hold up the front of the drum from the bottom at about the 4:30 and 7:30 positions. For access to the felt: unplug the machine - Pop up the top from the front with a slot screwdriver - inside the front at the top corners there will be one screw on each side, remove them and the front will pull forward and lift of 2 hooks at the bottom - There will be wires connected to the door switch, mark and disconnect them before you pull the front away and break the switch - then you can remove the front support the big round thing, the felt is glued to the inside of this, and the supports are on the back side of this - look under the drum and see where the belt is connected to the drum- motor and tensioner, remember how it goes before you loosen it !!! Pick upward on the front of the drum and take it out of the cabinet. Put a few drops of sewing machine oil on the 2 roller supports on the backwall - spin them to make sure they are smooth and not wobbly - if they are replace them - the new seal comes with a tube of glue, remove the old one (watching how it goes back on) clean the metal and glue the new one on, check the front supports, put a few drop of oil on the belt tensioner and reassemble Cross your fingers
