Replacing the boot gasket

Hi,

I just got a replacement boot gasket for my washer.  Can you explain what the process is to install the new boot gasket?  I tried removing the door but the top of the door has two screws holding it and on the right inside of the door there is a blue wire that looks like it is connected to the machine

Please help.

Thank you

How do i remove door gasket on my wfmc3200 washer


Be careful to allow the new door gasket to relax for at least a day before doing the installation. Take it out of the box and lay it out in a circle to help get any kinks out of it.

Also, when installing the new gasket, go slowly when stretching it over the edges of the washer drum and the door edge, being extra careful to make sure you align the gasket properly on the washer. You might want to take a digital picture of the existing gasket before you remove it, so you can refer to it when reinstalling the new gasket.

Some models have a port for the water inlet on the gasket, if your's does, install the gasket over the inlet first, then move onto the rest of it. If your's doesn't have a inlet port opening in the gasket, just be sure you have the gasket orientation correct.

Replacing a door gasket/boot is one of the things that most homeowners can do themselves and save yourself having to pay for a technician.

Here's a exploded line drawing of your washer, so you can see the parts and order of installation before you dive into taking things apart.

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.

Hello; I have a GE Front Load washer and seem


You can't repair the seal, but you can replace it with a new one for under $130 if you do the replacement yourself. You can order it online or from a local appliance shop, as prices vary slightly from place to place. I suggest www.searpartsdirect.com as they usually have the part in stock and you can get it shipped to you anywhere in the US without having to run all around trying to find one locally, etc.

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 washing machine.

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 wash 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.

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.

Broken door gasket how to replace on GE front
