An object had gotten wedged between the inner door and the spinning drum causing the grommet to wear down while spinning and the inner door to crack allowing water to trickle down the front of the washer. (word to the wise-never put a hard athletic support cup into a front loading washer)

I ordered the grommet and inner door on a Tuesday and had both parts at my door step the following day. Including shipping it was only $64.00. With only a screwdriver in hand and 45 minutes of time I removed four screws to take the entire door off. I then removed the inner door and vent tube and grommet (very easy). After placing the new grommet into the new inner door I inserted the vent tube and screwed everything back together.
The repair man would have charged $90 for the labor and the parts which he would have had to order would have been extra.

mold on door boot, replace door boot

followed the approach on fixya.com. when installing new boot and cable loop, found it easier to remove drum cover from machine (held on with simple clips). Then you can install boot onto the cover and the door frame. Putting everything back in machine and re-attaching the various braces took only a couple of minutes.

I found water on the floor beneath the washer. Further inspection revealed the door boot was torn.

I removed the screws around the front door. Then removed the front face. I removed the bolts holding the top down at front top corners. I removed the detergent dispensor. Next I removed the spring and hold down cable. I then pulled out the old boot. I then, with the help of my son, pulled the new boot around the drum. Then attached the cable and spring. Next pushed the boot into the front retainer. I then put the dispenser in and the front back on. Good as new. It was not hard as long as you have someone to help with pushing the boot around.

I took off the front cover, lifted the top, removed old door latch assembly and replaced wire for wire; put the washer back together. The part came in great time and it was a no-brainer. The appliance repair man sold my wife a bill of goods and basically lied to her. Word to the wise, "An appliance repairman who can come at your calling is one to be careful of, most good repairman are busy and it may take a day or two come over."

The inner door was dammage with a hole so we needed a new inner door.

Remove the ten screws to the inner door to remove it. There are components in the inner door that we didn't think would be there. Take out the components on the inside of the inner door. The areas where the ten screws go in have the small metal plates that we needed to be transferred to the new inner door. Otherwise the screws will not fit. It flips out. That's the part that took us a while to figure out but it came out easily. The other parts snaps on and off after the two screws are removed.

Just remember what you removed and where it should go. It takes two people to do the work.

Mashine leak was quickly diagnosed as rip in boot

The machine comes quickest appart with a cordless screwgun and a #2 Phillips.

To unhook the wire with spring it is easiest to use a needle nose plier and make a hook from a coat hanger or use a paint can opener.

Pay attention when yo line up the boot with the flange in the back, that the rectagular protrusions line up with the holes in the flange. You may have to stretch the boot a bit and push it all the way in with a dull tool.

Get someone to help you put the wire back on if you want to do it fast and easy. Otherwise hook it on the spring and get the pliers on the loop on the other side and pull it together, torquing the wire back so that it does not make the boot slip fo the flange.

First I removed all the screws, which removed the door. Once the door was off, was able to de-install all the parts of the old door and install on the new door. The engineers that design this, made it to be able to replace easily. Inner door part was replaced in less than 30 mins. The most amazing part was I order the part on Monday and the door was fix on Tuesday before 2:00. I was amazed. Thanks

If you are using the newer style seal be sure the taper part of the seal is toward the front of the machine. Installing it backward will ruin the seal and burn up the motor and or controller. The seal installation tool will fit on the side oppsite the taper. It will require a helper to hold the drum support while torquing the nut on the pulley. Better instruction would help too.

First I remove the the four screws surounding the front door. Then I took off the front panl cover. This give axcess to the nuts that needed to be removed to lift the top panl. Once the top panl was lifted up (not removed) then I was able to unscrew the door latch that was broken and replace it with the new one. I replaced one conected wire at a time so that I wouldn't get them mixed up. After that it was then easy to put back together! It works great now! Saved me from having to go out and buy new ones or to have a repair man come over. Cost me under eighty bucks! I was very happy! Thanks PartsSelect.com!
