    is the boot the whole rubber seal with the metal rim and hook?

  • snha Dec 31, 2010

    i was not able to get the metal ring on . i couldnt find an area that was thick enough for the spring but the washer now works. is the wire there just for stability and can i use the washer safely without the metal piece?

  • snha Dec 31, 2010

    it doesnt seem as if the spring will fit in the seal. if i had to buy a replacement piece, does it come with the wire/spring in place already? is there any specific part of the seal where the spring goes?

You will need to replace the boot.The boot is held on by a spring that stretches around the outside of the seal. The seal simply hooks on to a small lip so all you need to do is start in one spot and push it down and away. Then just work it around like removing a bike tire until it is fully removed. Be careful of the spring. It is hooked together so it may unhook once some of the tension is removed and snap around.

It is not a big deal to replace this part, you are doing the right thing leaving it open as they tend to mould up if left shut.
Here is a link to Bosch so you may order the correct part.

    Yes, the boot/seal/bellow is consist of the seal and the ring. It's simple to change out. If you look at the seal real good and you don't see any rips or holes in it, you may be able to reattach the ring and it should seal well. If not, order the part from the link I posted previously.

    Have a great New Years!

    It may work for awhile but sooner or later it will start to leak from around the seal.

    It comes with the spring in place. Then you just work it on a little at a time. You could probably get the other one on if you took the boot all the way off. If its not leaking now, I would just order a new one and replace it.

How to by pass the lid lock switch on a Kenmore elite Oasis HE washmachine

Not a real good idea except under emergency situations, as the lid lock is a safety switch to prevent access to the washer during spin cycles when the drum is operating at high speed and you don't want foreign objects (like hands) coming into contact with a high speed rotating drum or its contents. If you have the unit open enough to cut the wires, you had enough access to replace the switch, which you can get at or any Sears Service Center in your area. If you are hell-bent on operating the machine in an unsafe condition, just connect the bare ends of the wires with a wire nut, which will perform the same circuit connection as the closed switch. Tape the connected wires away from any moving parts, don't let any bare wire come in contact with any metal and keep the lid closed during all parts of the wash, rinse and spin cycles.

My malber wd2000 door won't open

Malbers use a thermal (heat acting) latch to hold the door closed, so it stays latched for about 2 mins after being turned off. This is to give you time to think before you open the door and possibly spill water all over your feet. When the little bi-metallic piece cools off, it bends to one side (inside the latch assy) releasing the catch, and the door can be opened. Sometimes, the bi-metallic part bends OK, but the latch catches and won\'t release. It just needs a little vibration to free it up. A smack to the latch area (on door or face of Washer) will free the latch.

I tell my customers: Don\'t pull too hard on the white door handle. If you can\'t open it with your little finger (seriously) it\'s not ready to open!

Washer agitates but won't spin or drain - makes a humming/buzzing sound during those cycles

check the pump,could have a sock or something stuck in it.usually i would say to check the lid switch,open and close the lid,if you don't hear a clicking sound the washer won't go into spin or drain but if you're hearing a humming sound that's the motor watch this video it will show you how to get to the pump.pop off the two clips that hold the pump on and remove the pump just pull it backwards off of the motor shaft,now get a piece of wire and strip the ends on it,2 to 3 inches long,unplug the washer before you start to work on it,get your jumper wire and stick it into the wire harness that connects to the lid switch, don't plug it into the ground plug it into the other two wires not the green wire,i'm pretty sure it's the two outside wires and the green ground is in the middle,plug the washer back in and pull the timer out in the spin cycle,if the motor runs and spins you know something is stuck in the pump or the pump is bad,but just to make sure it's not the lid switch and it is the pump put the pump back on and start the washer again if you hear the humming it's the pump or before you pull the pump jump out the lid switch and see if it spins and drains,if it doesn't then pull the pump so you don't have to stick the bad pump back on the washer,all the lid switch is for is so the washer will not run in the spin with the lid open and some washers won't even agitate if the lid is open by using the jumper wire we are bypassing the lid switch to check the washer while it's apart.hope this helps and if you can let us know how you make out so if someone else reads this with the same problem it will help them out too.

Frigidaire Stackable model #FEX831CSO door won't open

Unplug the machine and where the lid is latched you can push a piece of wire wire in the same hole it latches through. The wire will bottom out after in the hole about a inch. Push it slightly farther and try raising lid as your pushing. All the lock is is a metal tab that pushes up and down. After time the enclosure it's attached to splits and makes it fail but it can be opened with whatever goes farther in that hole then the latch itself.

Why is my frigidaire washer not spinning?

  1. Stopped Mid-cycle
    • If your Frigidaire washing machine started spinning, but then stopped, verify that the power cord is still connected to the outlet. See if the outlet blew by plugging in a different appliance into the outlet. See if you blew a fuse. A blown fuse usually is either black or has broken wires. Replace the fuse. If you have a circuit breaker instead of a fuse box, reset the circuit breaker if it's been tripped. Check the lid switch, which is located inside the main housing of the washing machine, near the door frame. If the switch is burned out, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer.
    • The pump's sole responsibility is to remove water during the spin cycle. If the pump isn't working properly, see if it's clogged with debris or clothing. Use needle-nose pliers to remove these items. Check the pump pulley, which is connected to the pump. This component must move freely for the pump to work. If it won't turn, purchase a new pump pulley since you can't usually fix this component.
    • Check the door latch assembly if the door isn't closing correctly. If any of these components are broken, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer. If you do not, the washer won't start spinning since it believes the door isn't closed. Your Frigidaire washing machine won't start the spin cycle until the lid or door is closed. Always close the lid, and remove any items preventing the lid from fully closing. Always close the dispenser drawer.
    Additional Concerns
    • Never over- or under-load your washing machine. Your Frigidaire washer may not enter the spin cycle if the load is too large, since this can damage the washing machine. Remove a few pieces of clothing. If the load is too small, add a few similar items to the washing machine. Check the internal belt, drive motor and motor coupling. If any of these components are broken or very worn, they may not work properly, preventing the washer from entering the spin cycle. Order replacement parts from a parts dealer. Check the tub and basket bearings, and get new ones if the current ones have broken components or are defective.

Door locked won't open on kenmore HE3T

Unplug the machine. You can open the door by removing the lower panel and reaching inside and up towards the door lock. You will feel a small, round, plastic piece that is attached to the lock assembly. Pull it and open the door. Once open, plug the washer back in a try to see if it will allow a cycle to start again, AFTER you have removed your clothes.

Cleaning the trap


The soap trap and its cap covers the soap in your dishwasher after you fill it and then swings open to dispense the soap when the wash cycle starts. If your dishes aren't getting clean or you notice the soap trap door is still shut after the dishwasher finishes a load, it may indicate a problem with the soap trap you'll need to fix.

Things You'll Need:

  • Dishwasher soap cap replacement,Screwdriver,Multimeter.
  1. 1 Open the lid of the soap trap and clean out any leftover soap. Soap and detergent, especially the inexpensive brands, can clump together and harden inside the soap trap instead of releasing into the water during the wash cycle. Change to a different soap and run the dishwasher again. See if the clumps disappear and if this solves the problem.
  2. 2 Remove the old dishwasher soap trap cap and replace with a new one. The plastic cap should slide or pop off. The instructions for the new cap should instruct you how to slide or pop it back into place. A new cap may solve the problem if the cap is not opening during use.
  3. 3 Turn off power to the dishwasher by either turning off power at the circuit breaker panel box or moving the unit out from the counter and disconnecting it from the power supply. Always do this when working inside the dishwasher to avoid electrocution.
  4. 4 Open the dishwasher door and remove the screws to take off the front paneling. Leave the screws holding the bottom hinges to the door in place to keep the door itself from falling off. Depending on your model, you may need to remove some clasps as well. Your goal is to gain access to the inside of the door and control panel so you can see the different knobs and buttons, and can fix the parts controlling the soap trap.
  5. 5 Locate your soap trap. Close the soap trap cap and insert a screwdriver to push on the metal piece -- called a bi-metal switch -- connected to the soap trap cap until the cap swings open. If the metal looks out of place and the cap doesn't swing open like it should, push the metal back into place with the screwdriver and try again. If this does not fix it, remove the metal piece and replace with a new one.

    If you can't find the metal piece, your dishwasher may use a wax motor assembly instead. Located near the soap trap cap, it's typically a small red or maroon colored plug with a small black rod sticking out of the end. Remove the wax motor for testing if you don't have a bi-metal switch.
  6. 6 Locate the round timer motor inside your dishwasher. Refer to your dishwasher's instruction manual for help identifying the different parts. Typically, the timer motor is a round piece with holes in it, and may be located near the timer control on the dishwasher itself. Remove the timer motor from the dishwasher.
  7. 7 Test the timer motor and wax motor assembly using a multimeter .Choose one of the motors to test and place one probe from the multimeter to one wire of the motor and the other probe to the other wire. For the timer motor, Part suggests setting the multimeter to the "x1000" ohms setting and you should get a reading of 2000 to 3500 ohms. If your reading is significantly different, the part is bad. For the wax motor assembly, set to the "x1" ohms setting and touch the probes to the wires. If the screen shows the infinity symbol, the motor is bad. Replace either part as needed.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II drum does not spin.

Depending on your washing machine model, the drum and motor are connected by 2 plastice yellow circular pieces, with a black rubber washer in the middle with holes where the pegs or rods go into. The 2 plastic circular pieces have 3 pegs or rods if you will, that connect to the black rubber washer via 3 holes. Sometimes, one or both of the 2 plastic circular piece pegs get broken off or the rubber washer cracks and breaks apart, so that the motor will not turn the drum. If thats the case, you can purchase the 2 circular pieces and black washer piece as a set.

Bosch frontload washer will not drain

Hello Mamma5, It sounds like the drain pump is either seized or jammed. The drain pump has an anti jam device in it. Since you have figured out how to get into the drain pump, try turning the inpeller in the back. It will be a little hard to turn as the magnets in the motor will fight you on this. Look close in case there is anykind of thread wrapped around the inpeller. If so, then you can free the pump. If you cannot free it to run, advise the repairman what you found so he can bring a drain pump with him.
Hope this helps.
