How to replace door gasket for GE WCVH6800J0mr

The front panel needs to be removed in order to replace the door gasket. This requires the removal of the top panel, control panel, service panel. Disconnect power to the machine before attempting any repair works.

Remove the 3 Phillips-head screws that attach the top cover then pull the cover rearward. It may be helpful to place a putty knife along the top seam between the cover and control panel then lightly tap it rearward. Remove the 3 hex-head screws that attach the rear of the top panel to the cabinet then slide the top panel rearward and lift the panel.

Remove the 3 Phillips-head screws that hold the service panel to the cabinet then pull the service panel down and off the cabinet.

Pull the dispenser out to the stop position then press down on the locking tab.

Pull the dispenser out completely then remove the single Phillips-head screw from the control panel dispenser recess.

Remove the 4 Phillips-head screws that attach the top of the control panel to the control panel cover.

Lift and push forward on the control panel from inside the cabinet to release the bottom tab from the front bracket.

Lift the top edge of the panel to disengage the 3 tabs that hold the top of the panel in place.

Push the control panel towards the left then release the side tab. Disconnect the wire harnesses from the control panel then set the panel aside. It is recommended to take note of the connections before disconnecting to prevent messing them up upon reconnection.

Open the door then remove the 3 Phillips-head screws that hold the door lock to the front panel and remove the spring and wire from the gasket.

Use a pair of long-nose pliers to grasp the wire hoop at the spring location and expand it to clear the door gasket and remove the spring and wire hoop.

Peel the door gasket off the outer lip of the front panel door opening then position it behind the front panel. Close the door and remove the 4 Phillips-head screws that attach the front panel to the cabinet. Lift up then remove the front panel from the hooks.

Once the front panel is off, pull down and disengage the gasket from the nozzle.

Ensure that the washer is placed on the outside and that the nozzle is aligned with the indent on the inside of the gasket when reinstalling.

Disengage the gasket from the water inlet pipe and loosen the 7-mm bolt that holds the wire and bolt assembly to the outer tub lip. Remove the wire and bolt assembly from the gasket then pull the gasket off the outer tub lip.

Install the tub gasket on the outer tub aligning the notch in the gasket with the arrow located on the top of the outer tub lip before tightening the wire and bolt assembly.

When reinstalling the wire and bolt, tighten it to a gap of approximately 11/4 inches. Do not over-tighten it to avoid tearing up the gasket.

Position the door gasket inside the drum then secure the front panel back into the cabinet. Put the door gasket over the outer lip of the front panel door opening then secure it with the spring and wire hoop assembly. Start at the top then work around the gasket on both sides simultaneously until the gasket is completely secured.

Reinstall the service panel, control panel, and the top panel to complete the procedure.

Door boot seal on a front load washer how to change

front gasket/door boot.... replacement isn't easy but do-able. first remove three screws that hold front lower panel on and remove panel (where lint filter is). then remove 3 screws that hold on top panel (screws located at rear of top of washer), next remove 3 screws on top front of washer, then remove 4 screws that secure the contol panel. you must remove the washer door at this point, just a few screws and pin hold the door on. now, remove control panel by gently pulling the top away from the washer, it's held by a few plastic snaps. then, remove three screws that secure front panel of washer. now you're ready to remove the old boot/gasket. first look toward lower right side of gasket and pull the spring and remove wire that secures front of gasket. next... at about 3 o'clock on the gasket you'll find a longer screw (about 3 inches) that secures the rear of the gasket. loosen this screw until you can remove the gasket. remove the water inlet and hose from the boot/gasket.... now remove gasket from washer. you're ready to install new boot/gasket. find the small triangle on the new gasket and line this up w/the triangel at the top of wash tub. begin working the gasket onto the lip of tub, make sure to align the triangle and water outlets of the gasket w/the triangle and outlets of the washer tub. once back of gasket is on install the rear wire holder and tighten screw to former tightness. now work front of gasket onto the lip of washer, install spring wire to secure the front. place water inlet and hose into respective holes on the gasket. put front panel back on, put door on, put control panel on, put top on... and wash. like i said, not easy but do-able... i completed it in 1.5 hrs w/no instruction.

Mouldy Door Seal

Use tilex to remove the mold. Then see what happens. If the mold comes back right away it may be a problem with the rubber gasket not seating as it should. Let me know. And please rate my solution. thanks.

Unless you can hear it catching as the drum is going round I would leave well alone, it will probably just get lodged near the heater and not cause any problem.
If the m/c has a removable rear panel then you can get access into the drum by removing the sump hose fastened onto the bottom of the drum. you might find it stuck there.
If no removable panel, then it is a strip down job, Not recommended, unless you know what you are doing.
