Question about Washing Machines
No this doesnt work putty never works on a machine when it deals with water are you talking about the rubber boot that connects the tub to the front frame section? If so there is a metal ring that goes around the outter grove of where the boot sits you would from the bottom use a small screwdriver and pry outward over the metal lip just a small amount the metal ring does have a small spring that adds tension to hold the rubber boot in place do not use the screwdriver on the metal spring once you pryed up one corner you would simply slide the rest off in a clockwise direction the hard part is yet to come you will need to remove the 3 rear screws that hold down the top then slide the top to the rear of the machine and remove the top panel. after you remove the top panel you would next have to remove the control you will see the screws after removing that top panel in order to remove the control NOTE WHERE ALL WIRE CONNECTORS GO TO TO DISCONNECT THE CONTROL
sorry i have to put this in bold but many times customers do not note where each wire goes to and then they end up tracing every wire through the wiring diagram after you remove the control you will see the upper from screws remove these and the screws that around the inside of the door panel as well check the bottom of the machine and inside the pump clean out for any remaining screws to be taken off when all the screws are off the front will want to come on a diagonal towards you unseat the rubber boot that is still holding the door and remove the entire front panel. after you remove the front panel unscrew the tension clamp that goes around the tub connecting the boot to the tub use this link to order your parts directly from simpson http://www.simpson.com.au/locator/search/service/
