Congratulations, it may help you if you use a bit of water with a bit of detergent as lubricant when snapping back the rubber gasket in place.

Samsung washer WF328AAW/XAA metal pieces in hose?


Could be a number of things. Either something foreign was left in a pocket (Coins are the most common object) and has come out in the wash. The coin rattles around and falls in between the tubs through the gap in the front gasket. When this happens, the coin can hit the bracket which holds the heater element in place and tears it off. This causes a lot of damage. Most Samsung have plastic outer bowls and often, the tub will be split and a leak will start from underneath. Lastly, it could be the drum main shaft and spider assembly. This is what holds the spin tub into the machine. If this fails, bits of metal will come off. Usually seen as bits of corroded aluminium that get stuck in the pump and hoses. When this happens, the tub usually goes loose and the machine makes a horrible grinding and banging noise when spinning. I would say that if this has happened , its time for a new machine.

Need to change rubber door seal on Samsung washing machine


The first thing to do is open the door remove the wire spring that holds the rubber boot in place.You will need to lift the edge of the rubber boot to see the wire clamp.

Then you will need to remove the lid by taking out the two screws that hold it in place they are on the back.Next remove the four screws that hold the control panel in place.

Then remove the screws that hold the front panel in place.also be sure to remove the soap dispenser unit. after you take off the front panel you may remove the counter balances if you want to to remove the rest of the boot it does make it a bit easier but you do not have to if you do not want to.
I hopes this helps you out.

Happy New Year...

How do I replace the drum gasket at the rear of Model 97273100.


Replacing gasket is fairly simple - need 2 people. UNPLUG FIRST - 1. Remove the plastic cover on top of machine that is mounted to back of control panel. 2. remove dispenser - push down on tab at back and it will slide all the way out. 3. Remove lower front cover by removing 3 screws holding it on bottom. 4. Remove 3 screws holding top panel on back of machine and slide cover back approximately 1 inch and lift off. 5. Remove the 3 screws that hold the control panel on - note these are different type of screw so keep track of which screw goes where - one of the screws is next to dispenser opening. Once this is done you can reach in to machine and disengage locking tab on right side under "washer temp" - have someone hold this part aside if you do not want to disconnect the cables. 6. Remove spring loaded wire securing door seal to front cover. 7. Remove the the 4 screws holding the front cover on. This item is a bit heavy so be careful. Disconnect the three door latch wire harness and place this aside. 8. On the right side of the gasket you will find the clamp screw that holds the seal to the drum - loosen this screw almost all the way and remove this wire clamp. carefully remove the two tube connections and remove the gasket completely. Take note how these were installed before removing. Now you can carefully clean the gasket seats on the drown and door and replace the gasket and reverse the steps to put the machine together. While you have the covers off it would make sense to remove and clean the pump strainer mounted on the lower cross support - this can be messy with lots of water coming out so go slowly and have plenty of towels and a shallow pan to catch the water with. HOPE this helps.

LG washer tE error code


A "tE" error code is more than likely the "thermistor". Supposedly can't be serviced by untrained individuals (thus the directions to call for service) but the thermistor can be found easily by tilting the machine on its back. It is mounted to the back of the drum housing. I removed mine after getting a "tE" error...cleaned and replaced...no problems since! No screws needed to be removed. My thermistor is a small, round, black rubber grommet with the metal sensor pushed through the center. I removed the entire grommet. It easily pops back into place.

Rubber gasket


Hi again,

Rubber gasket due to their function would be tight fitting, you may need to force it out. Often it would have a lip or locking protrusion to keep it in places. The hard part is being able to remove a portion of it off the framework and the rest will follow.

BIG LEAK!!!!!!


If you haven't torn or otherwise damaged the gasket or metal band, you can put it back on. It's a bit of a workout, as the metal band is pretty tight, but that's what they do at the factory. I think you might be able to do it more easily with the front removed.
