Make sure that no sharp objects are on the clothes and lift out of the machine instead of pulling out of the machine when the load is done, there have been no issues of any kind on door gasket failures due to product design or part failure to date

This normally happens when clothes are not put in all the way and catch on the boot or the unit is off balance alot causing alot of stress and leaving bigger openings for things to get caught in.

We discovered that our front door inner gasket is torn. Therefore, it's leaking during every load out of the door. I will be ordering the part but concerned that I won't be able to replace it. Do you...


If you've not done this before, expect to spend a lot of time. I've replaced these without disassembling the washer's front, but it's an arm-twisting experience to put the inner part of the gasket on, and to attach and tighten the clamp holding it. Haven't tried removing the front panel, if you can, do it - the job becomes much easier.

PS Check shocks and if the washer is leveled enough, door gaskets tear from excessive loads and excessive vibration.

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.
