Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
Round metal ring with spring fell off my front loading washer that is only 4 months old not sure where it needs to go
If you are talking about a small metal hoop with a spring on one end, it is the outer bellow retaining clamp. The bellow is the rubber door seal. The retaining ring inserts into a groove in the rubber seam around the perimeter of the door where it attaches to the door frame. To reinstall, first make sure the door boot is fitting snugly around the door frame opening. Sometimes when the retaining spring comes loose, the rubber may pull away from the door frame. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Make sure the wire spring points towards the bottom. As you work your way around the door to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, you will need to maintain some constant downward pressure while pulling the spring apart in order to snap it back into place with your thumbs. It would be advisable to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this as it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.
If this is not the spring you are talking about, please post back and elaborate a bit more on what the part looks like to see if I can assist you better. (i.e., size, dimension, where you found the part, etc.)
I hope you find this information helpful.
