SOURCE: Ge Adora Front Loader

If you have not already done so, clean the filter behind the panel in the front bottom of the washer. Remove the three philips head screws to get the panel off. Unscrew the plastic filter on the right hand side (use a shallow cake pan to catch any water). Remove the filter and clean out the pens, pencils, change, lint, etc... and put back in. All should work well after this. Thanks, Greg

SOURCE: Door seal on GE Adora Washing Machine

After going through 2 different places that sent me the wrong part, I finally got the right boot seal today from Home Depot Appliances. I just gave them my model number and they overnighted the new boot seal to me, and for only $100. To call a GE repairman, it was going to cost $70 in the trip and $170 for the seal. Rip Off. We did it ourselves. Saved a lot of time and waiting.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: door seal ripped

This is the model that was made by GE to be sold exclusively though Home Depot stores. The cross over model is the GE WCVH6600H0BB
The tub gasket (door seal) is part number #WH08X10022 with a new substitution part #WH08X10036. However, since the GE Adora line might 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 order any repair parts, so you can be certain they'll work for your washer.

It's a relatively easy repair, all you need to do is remove the nuts and washer at the top and bottom of the cabinet all around the opening (once you've opened the door) to get the counter balances off, so you can access the gasket and remove it and replace it with the new one.

Here's a line drawing that shows the exploded view of the tub section, with the gasket (item #306). Just take your time in removing and reinstalling 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.

SOURCE: 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.

It appears that out washing machine is leaking from underneath. Is this possible? We have had it for 9 years. Is it time to get a new one?


Before assuming the washer needs replacing, please follow the advice in the following link to determine where the source of your leak may be coming from:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

Most common sources of front loader leaks come from the door bellow (gray rubber seal). The rubber seal does wear out over time and may need to be replaced. The cost of a replacement bellow is far less expensive than replacing the entire washer. The last time I checked (I personally own a front loader), these washers are not cheap.

If you determine, the bellow needs replaced, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load

Another secondary cause can be a leaking drain pump. Make sure you also check all the interior drain hoses and fittings. If replacement parts are required, I have found great luck with the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

The first three websites have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. Shop and compare. Prices vary between sites.

If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

HI my ge adora washer is leaking and it looks like the rubber rim has 2 small u shaped tears about 3/8" in it what can I do,


You could try sealing the tears with silicon sealer, it might work, otherwise you will need to have a new rubber seal fitted.

GE Profile front loader washing machine is leaking front of door, believe the problem is the rubber washer ring, however can this be replaced?


Hello, this is usually the door seal, most machine incorporate a one piece combined door seal and outer drum seal(often just called a DOOR GASKET), the door seal are put in on the front panel first in the factory, then the drum assembly is put in and the seal pushed over the outer drum. This means a lot of stripping down has to be done just to replace the drum to the door seal.
Thanks

My GE Adora is making my clothes stink like mildew.


welcome to front load machines. the seal is so good that you don't get air circulation after the cycle (like the top loaders). Solution: take your clothes out right away, wipe that water out from around the seal and most important leave the door open when not in use

Leaking front loader


If your washer has a rubber seal around the inside of the door and it has a little opening where the detergent comes into the washer put your hand inside the rubber piece and feel all the way around and see if you feel any holes or cracks in it and that is where it will leak from.

Rubber Seal not Sealing


This seems to be a common problem with front loaders, but there is an easy fix if you follow these simple steps:

1. The rubber seal fits over the lip around the door opening. Carefully seat the rubber seal all the way around the door opening first.
2. Then, place the wire hoop in the crease where the rubber seal fits over the lip. Insert the hoop with the spring pointing at the bottom. Starting at the top and work your way around the door opening to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions.
3. While holding the hoop in place, stretch the spring apart enough to allow the rest of the hoop to snap into the crease at the bottom of the door opening. You may need a second pair of hands to help you with this.

 Good luck and I hope this helps you.
