SOURCE: frigidaire gltf1670a front door seal instalation

Open the door and remove either the outer bellows spring (newer models) or use a putty knife to scrape the glue around the bellows to release it from the cabinet lip. At this point lean the machine back to give more space between the drum and the cabinet.
Remove the kickplate for easier access and to visually check for leaks later.
Starting at the top, pull on the bellows firmly (close to the tub) until it comes out of the groove. Once it comes off you will see the bellows spring.
Install the new bellows starting at the top by aligning the marks (arrow on the bellows top and arrow on the tub lip). Work your way around until bellows is properly seated snug against the tub.
Here it gets tricky, it might be easier with an extra pair of hands but there's less room. Some bellows kits contain spacers/plugs which will help to "hold" the spring as you stretch it back in place. Work from the top down on both sides at once. Either use the spacers/plugs or have someone hold the spring in place as you work your way around.
Once in place, lay the machine back to level and reinstall the front of the bellows to the cabinet. Either re-install the outer bellows spring or re-glue the bellows to the cabinet. If this is not done you risk a water leak.
With towels handy (just in case), let the machine fill and agitate for a few minutes and check for water leakage. If all is well, make sure machine is still level by try to rock it diagonally from the top (if it rocks, lower the leg that is lifting). Re-install the kickplate and wash some laundry!

Removing outerseal on my frigidaire front load w as sher


Are you asking about the rubber door boot/seal??? The outer edge is held on by a spring loaded wire that runs around the door opening. You can see it if you lift the outer edge of the boot close to the painted cabinet front. The inner edge of the boot is help on by a very big hose type clamp. Some models you can get to it through the opening after you remove the outer wire. Some models need the washer top removed to get to the clamp screw.

We have a Frigidaire "Affinity" front loader it is leaving a puddle on the floor when we use it. I assume the rubber ring is bad has anyone changed it themselves? Is it a hard fix?


Are you sure it's the door seal? If it is they are normally just held in place with 2 metal rings, 1 at the edge of the seal at the door opening and one at the outer drum. Once you remove the front ring from the door opening you can gain access to the one at the drum. Removing the lid of the machine will also help and give you a bit more light.
Anyone with a bit of DIY know how should be able to replace it, an hour tops for a beginner.

Black marks appearing on towels. Look like marker, smudged.


hi.
it could be the seal on the front of the drum starting to break down.
clean the seal at the front of the drum that seals the door. then rub a white cloth/towel around the seal

if there are any marks left by the seal then the rubber compouds are starting to break down and the seal needs to be replaced.

please feel free to ask for detailed instructions on changing this seal if you need them

How do you take the inner drum out of a Frigidaire front loading washer?


Make sure you have plenty of well-lit space to work as well as lay out the parts removed. Remove the cabinet top by removing several screws from the rear, slide it back somewhat, then lift up. Remove the back panel by removing screws along the top rear, then lift up. Pull loose the rubber boot (it's glued to the cabinet front opening as well as to the outer drum face) CAREFULLY from the front panel opening. After uncoupling the drum motor, wiring, hoses, and suspension components, lift out the entire outer drum assembly. The case splits after removing a handful of bolts from the split circumference. Remove the large drum pulley and any snap-rings holding the large shaft in place. The inner drum should pull out of the rear case, but leave the bearings and seal in the case. The inner bearing and seal are prone to failure over time. The official fix is to replace the rear case (with new seal and bearings) for some 300 to 400 dollars. We chose to replace the bearing and seal from a local bearing supply house for about $16. It's still working well after over 10 years. Assemble in reverse order. Use 3M automotive trim cement for gluing the rubber boot back to the cabinet front. Hope this helps!

Dirt streaks appear after laundering


Grease seal for the bearings need to be replace. Unless you are a DIYer this is an expensive repair. Labor to install a new grease seal is about 400 to 500 dollars depending on the area. Parts will run about 100 to 150 dollars. The grease seal is cheap about a $10.00 part, but since ypou have the washer torn apart, and the grease seal has fail, you should also replace the bearings.

Replace the front bellow or front seal, as it may be called. It is an inner tube shaped rubber liner that seals between the front of the washer door and the front of the drum. The cost is about $35.00-$40.00 and you will need the kit as it includes the rubber spacers that are essential to doing the job. The job takes about 1 1/2 hours to complete. It is not hard, but it is dedious and requires some basic skills. Directions included in the kit are helpful.
