Two things

(1)
You need a new door gasket and retaining spring , The old ones are worn and will keep flipping off if you replace them

(2)
The only hope you have is that you pull clothes out of the machine in large lumps instead of a couple of things at a time and in doing so have caught the lip of the gasket and pulled it away from its seat.

It needs a man that knows to fix it, you can take the top off and feed the gasket and spring on your self if you have the required mechanical gumption

I just changed that rubber boot seal myself and it wasn't much fun but it is done thank God. Mine was torn and only a little over a year old.

Front seal came off


Sometimes when the load get tangled during the cycle and you try to pull all the load out in one go, you can dislodge the seal and retaining spring. Remove the wire around the door seal, repositioned the seal around the edge of front panel porthole. There is a folded metal edge around the metal frame and the grey rubber gasket lips over this, once in position, offer up the metal retaining band and use a pair of long nosed pliers to stretch the spring so you can get it to sit around the seal. Sorry this a little long winded but very difficult to articulate properly, so I hope you get the gist. Cheers

that rubber is called the bellow. snap the bellow back to the machine. place plastic ring over it into the grove and work it all the way around. that metal ring should have a spring on it. use a needle nose pliers and pull the spring so it stretches, metal ring should snap right in place.

Rubber seal inside door came off-how do I replace it and where does the retaining wire/cable go?


Hi,

Reinstalling that rubber seal is a lesson in patients. There is a metal lip on the machine opening and a cooresponding groove in the rubber seal. These two need to be mated together. That's the easy part. Once together, the retaining wire and spring go around the rubber seal just on top of where the rubber seal goes over the matching lip. It will take several tries, the spring may be small but it's very strong and difficult to stretch. Good luck.

Rubber around the washer has come off - there is a thin mental wire but it does not seem to fit well. I have also lost the manual which may have a picture in it.


The thin metal wire should have a loop on either end. Connecting the two loops is a spring, that wire/spring combination holds the rubber seal around the tub opening. Putting the wire back on is a lesson in patience. The rubber fits in a slot on the back and the wire holds it in in the front. Good luck.

The rubber gasket around the tub fell off on front loader


Open the door and reinstall the bellows (door gasket) onto the door lip. The metal ring clamps the bellows to the door lip. Start in the groove at the top and work your way down the sides. The spring part goes on the bottom (be careful not to stretch it too much). An extra pair of hands could help.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Good luck!

I use a needle nose vise grip at the top, make sure not to puncture boot. put it around the left side, then i use small screw driver to hold spring on one side, then pull the other side of spring until it goes over boot. Be carefull not to stretch spring to far.

Metal ring aroound rubber seal fell off.


Start with the spring at the bottom, work the retainer around until the seal starts to pull away from the washer. Now grip the loop that the spring attaches to on the side that isn't in place and open the retainer. Push the retainer in place and release the spring.
