Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
My washer is leaking and I noticed their is a tear in my front tub seal. I want to replace it but do not know how.. the manual provided does not even give a part #. I am mechanically inclined and can do it without having to pay a service call (whilpool) but need to know how to replace it. Can anyone tell me how to replace this on my Duet GHW9150P
Any help would be appreciated.
Once you have your replacement boot (or seal) (availible at local appliance parts stores or from the manufactures web site on line), You can follow these steps:
1 - Remove the front clamp. (a silver peice of wire with a spring at the botom) A small flat head screwdriver will let you pull/pry it off.
2 - You may have a green clamp on a black hose that comes from the dispenser to the top of the boot (seal) on some models that you will have to disconnect.
3 - The main water inlet (about the 9 o'clock position can just be pulled off (and worked back on durring re-instalation)
4 - Remove the second clamp on the back side of the boot (it's a flat piece of metal that has a screw on it at about the 3 oclock position. Turn it counter-clockwise to loosen. (clockwise for installing the new boot)
5 - Pull the old boot free.
6 - Reverse the procedure making sure to line the new boot up at the top. (there is a arrow that shows where to align the tub [white piece of plastic] and the boot). There is lip on the back of the boot that will seat all of the way around it.
7 - When putting the front clamp back on (the wire and spring combo) there is also a lip to seat around the front as well. When putting on the clamp, use a small flat head screwdriver inserted into one of the holes next to the spring. Then using a pair of needle nose pliers or another screw driver, work the way around the edge re-seating the clamp over the lip.
To make it easier and give a bit more room for this, you can pull the machine forward, then tilt it back until the machine will balance resting against the rear wall. This will give you more room)
You can easily remove the lower front panel by removing the 1/4" screws along the bottom of the panel and lowering it down. Not only will this give you some beter angles, but it will also let you check quickly for leaks once you start the machine again.
