Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

We need to order a part for our GE frontload washer, but we don't know the correct part number. How can we find it? It's the rubber seal betweent he drum and the door. It's been torn and replaced before (must be a desin flaw), but we dont' want to pay for a service call if we can try to do it ourselves. Can you tell us how to "name that part" and where we can order it, as well as possibly getting a service manual?

Any appliance repair shop should be able to order it for you, or try a search online.

Hope this helps.

Tiny piece of rubber seal is torn off- water leaks from front end


You can't really repair the seal, but you can replace it with a new one for under $130 if you do the repair yourself. You can order it online or from a local appliance shop, as prices vary slightly from place to place.

The tub gasket (door seal) is part number #WH08X10022 with a new substitution part #WH08X10036. However, since each model can be slightly different, depending on the serial number which denotes when it was manufactured, you might want to confirm that the above gasket is the correct one for your particular washer.

I'd suggest you call the folks at Sears Parts Direct at 1-800-252-1698 and give them your complete model number AND serial number before you start in on the repair, so you can be sure you have the correct substitution bellows gasket.

It's a relatively easy repair, all you need to do is remove the spring retaining wire around the outer edge of the bellows gasket, just peel it back at the edge to see it. Now locate the locking loop by going around the rim. Once you find the locking loop, you can remove it using a couple pairs of small needle nose pliers as they make it easier to get off.

Once you've done that, you'll see the locking plate that holds the back side of the bellows gasket onto the outer washer tub. Remove those fasteners and you can get the bellows off and start in on putting the new bellows onto the washer, just reversing the order you used in the removal process.

Here's a line drawing that shows the exploded view of the tub section, with the gasket (item #306). Just take your time removing the old gasket so you remember what you're doing and when installing the new gasket so as not to rip or tear it in the process. I'd also suggest you let the gasket relax for a good 4-5 hours (to get the kinks and folds out of it from the packing box) before you do the installation.

Here's another link to one of my other solutions for installing a bellows gasket on a GE front loading washer that you can also review for more installation tips, etc.

Rubber seal, drainage seal on washer ruptured its about 3" thick.


being 3 years old you will not be under any warranty. as far as the parts go any appliance shop with your model # will be able to get you the correct part. none of the appliance parts stores go by part number as these are constantly changing for better parts from the aftermarket then what the manufacturer used. so again just take your model # and call a few appliance parts company or even repair shops will sell parts as well.

GE Adora Frontload Washer shredding clothes


We were having the same problems with ripped clothing and longer cycles. Our rubber seal by the door has ripped twice now causing massive amounts of water to run out. I learned through other threads that many people are having these problems and was told that zipping up zippers and turning jackets and clothing with big heavy stuff on them in side out to protect from ripping the clothing and the rubber seal. I removed the panel on the front bottom of the machince and there is a small gray cover that housed the coin trap. Mine was clogged and once I cleared that out, my cycle times got better. I hope this was somewhat helpful. We definitely won't be purchasing another GE front loader!!

GE frontloader door gasket ripped


We had the same problem, I printed off the solution posted by john_in_erie. His repair directions were VERY acurate, however we find a few helpful additions to the repairs - 1st in step #6, the spring loaded wire, is in the front of the gasket under seal (we were looking on top of machine). Also in step #8, you need a short phillips screwdriver or a 7 mm socket with a 1/4" ratchet because of the position of the screw to get around the edge of the tub.
Thank you so much John, we could have not done it without your very accurate installation instructions.
