    We have the identical problem. The service guy is here right now. Good luck fixing it yourself because he is charging a whopping $234.68 to repair it! This is the SECOND time we've had this problem. I'm trying to figure out how to complain to Bosch. Of course we are out of warantee...

    i changed the seal but now the door wont close properly. hooking the springs that hold seal in place was a knuckle buster, so hope i don't have to do over!!!

    The bottom of the seal is torn (i have no idea how) and water is leaking out of the door. I also have major mildew problems on the seal and a stagnant water smell.

I replaced mine without removing any of the unit. It is a bit trickier getting the inside locking spring in place, but it is possible.
Mine got torn when my mother-in-law who was visiting and had never used a front load left a towel partially out of the door and it pulled the seal into the washer and nicked it..

Pay the repair guy, even if it didn't include the part (seal) its cheap at $200. I replaced my door seal, I think the part cost me $36. In order to do the job correctly you need to remove the top, take off the front, remove the counter weight (to get room to work and not bust your knuckles). If you have an older machine the replacement seal is not a direct match. My seal won't allow the door to close completely and i have to lean on it to allow it to lock on start. I have had the seal in for about 4 months and am noticing the door closes better and I only have to lean on it a couple of times.
I replaced my seal because of the mildew problem caused by poor drain hole design. How does your seal get torn?

GE French Door PFS22MIS Door seals are torn at top of both doors. How difficult to replace?

use your model # to order new seals. they are easy to replace. Just grab an edge with your fingers and pull and the door seals will pull out of the groove they are in. to replace, start at the bottom center of each door pressing the seal into the groove. don't stretch the seal as you replace and it will fit perfectly.

Dishwasher door leaks heavily. this is a new problem today. The leak is from the lower right corner of the door.

It could need a good cleaning. Residue from soap and food tend to build up in that area all along the bottom of the door and seal. The other issue could be the seal itself, check the rubber seal at the bottom of the door and make sure it is not torn or damaged.
Unless the water level is getting to high, it should be one of these two.
Let me know. If you can provide me with the model number, I might be able to get a little closer.

The gasket is torn

Hello. The seal swap isn't too difficult. You may have to unstack. If the washer is on the bottom, you may be able to scoot the dryer back enough to make the repair, but the washer case is like a cabinet; each part depends on the other parts for rigidity. For this reason alone, it would be much safer without several hundred pounds above your head. I'd unstack. That said: You can certainly diy. Unplug the washer. With the door open, look at the bottom of the seal. You'll see a ring clamp. Loosen the screw and remove the clamp. Peel the seal inward. It is easier to complete the seal swap with the front off. Remove the door and set aside. Locate the screws for the front of the machine and remove them, gaining access to the seal. Youcan either set the door to the side with the door lock wires still attached, or unclip them, which is easier. With the seal folded inward, you will likely find another clamp at the bottom. Loosen this as well. Remove the seal and replace with the new one, making sure to orient it like the old one was, and fold it to the inside like you had the old one for removal. Replace the front panel. Complete the seal installation, being careful to make sure that the clamp removed earlier gets put back in the groove and seats well. Reinstall the door. Best Regards, --W/D--

Push start different sound water may start may not start pause

I would check to make sure the connectors to that door lock are all connected. If they are it's probably the lock/switch mechanism itself. Wow I just checked and they are about $120. The p/n is wh10x10006 You can google around for the best price. Good luck!
