    take drum out of machine, split two piece drum, replace rear section of drum. bearing comes w/ new drum section cast inside.

    bearing is non removable by it self. expensive and time consuming job ! I would purchase new machine first

SOURCE: Broken door gasket how to replace on GE front

You'll need to determine which bellows gasket your washer needs before you undertake the repair. Go to the following link and enter in your washer model number to get the line drawing and parts breakdown.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action?pop=flush
Click on the "find a part" and enter in your model number

Typically, 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.

You can also 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.

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.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

There was a revision to the shocks which you'll see when you get the new ones. Squeeze the two retaining barbs in with a pair of pliers then twist and push rearward. On the right one you have the air dome in the way - it helps to have a buddy pull from the back while you release the barbs.

My Front Load Washer is leaking whenever water is filling inside the washer. GE WCV6600hbb


Important for you is to observe the point of leak for which you might have a good access point. So place the washer a little elevated and use a good light to probe. Check for leaks from the drain hose connectors, the drain valve/pump, the bearings in the drum or overflowing from the drum due to faulty seal gaskets or water level sensors.
Once this is seen the component can be confirmed and removed/replaced.

Progressively louder on spin maytag neptune model# MAH5500BWW serial#C8028996LC


You have a bad rear drum bearing ( unfortunantly , so do I ) . This involves removing the inner drum and outer drum . The complete rear of the outer drum , has to be replaced , due to the bearing is already installed in the new one . Very expensive to have done and very time consuming to do yourself . You probably should invest in a different washer . Front load washer manufacturers , have not come up with a way to support the front of an inner drum as well as supporting the rear also . Until this happens , rear bearing problems and excess expense for repair , will continue to be the downfall of front loading washers .
