Small tear on Door Boot Seal that allowed water to leak

  • Customer: Edwin from Gainesville, VA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
This is the second door boot seal that I've replaced on my GE Washer (I don't know the model number). I turned on my IPad, went on YouTube, and found this video: "GE Front Loader Washer Gasket Replacement." I placed the IPad on top of the dryer which was right next to the washer and followed the instructions step by step. I used the pause and play buttons repeatedly to ensure I followed the instructions correctly. The hardest part was placing two retainer rings back on. These retainer rings are used to attach the gasket to the washer drum and to the door opening. When the door is closed it effectively seals the drum preventing water from spilling out or leaking. Before reinstalling both rings, ensure that the gasket is properly seated inside the appropriate grooves on the drum and the door opening respectively. It’s a very tight fit between gasket and metal, so you have to make sure the gasket is properly seated all the way around. The inside retainer ring can be tighten with a Philips screw driver or a small wrench. Not as easy as it sounds because you don't have too much room to work with. I had to grab the drum on the right side and tilt to the left in order to get a little more room for my screwdriver. It may be easier with a small wrench, but I don't have the patience. The second retainer ring goes on the outside of the gasket and the door opening. This ring is spring loaded. Attempt to place as much of the ring inside the groove before the spring loaded tension prevents you from going any further. When you get to this point, take a flat tip screwdriver (careful not to damage the gasket) and hold the retainer ring in place while moving counterclockwise and with a second flat tip screwdriver stretched the ring and popped into place until the whole ring is in place. The guy in the video does this effortlessly with only his hands. The first time I did this, my wife helped me do it. She held the left side while I used two flat tip screwdrivers to stretch the ring, pop in place, hold, stretch, and pop in place until complete. Once you're done you will feel good about yourself and grateful to the gentleman who recorded the video and was nice enough to share. Good luck.

hold drive pulley from turning and used socket wrench to remove nut. then pulled off pulley from shaft and belt came off same time. very carefully filed the flat sides of the shaft end where the pulley slides onto. careful not to overfile or round out the she shaft end. carefully tap in place the pulley onto the shaft. install a new nut and tighten it approx. 40 ft pounds or 1/4 turn past tight. do not reuse old nut. pulley comes with a new one and the nylon on the old one is no good once used. once pulley is tight install the belt first onto the motor shaft then work the other end of the belt onto the pulley from top end then turn the pulley wheel counter clockwise as you push more belt onto the pulley wheel. kind of like putting on your bicycle tire on your rim.

Baffle broke off inside the washer

  • Customer: Ted from Highland Park, NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

You probably won't want to publish this but it worked. The baffle on the GE washer I have required a complete tear down of the machine's front and outer waterproof drum to get a tiny little screw out. Very poor design if you ask me. And, I was not about to pay a technician for a massive overhaul to get a 3/8" long stainless screw off the broken remains of the baffle. So, I measured how far over the screw was from the pipe that feeds detergent, softener and bleach into the drum. I drilled a 3/8" hole in the outer drum. After removing the screw and installing the new baffle (which took all of about 2 minutes), I put a 3/8" hole plug I bought at Lowes into the hole with two part plastic epoxy. Then I covered the entire hole plug with a crown of epoxy. Five minutes later when the epoxy set, I ran a load of clothes. It ran perfectly and did not leak. I know. I know. This is not what you would recommend to your readers but it worked. I was brought up fixing everything around the home and any effectie shortcut was/is used. Oh,by the way, if you know which GE engineer thought up the design for this baffle installation, whack him on the head once.

I watched the video and followed the instructions. First remove power. Remove the rear cover from the control panel and the top cover. Then remove screws that secure the control panel to the frame and remove the control panel. Remove the bottom cover. Then remove the lock ring that holds the rubber boot to the front panel. Remove the door and remove the water inlet pipe. Assemble the machine and run a test cycle.

The washer would not stop running water, even when unplugged!

  • Customer: Christian from Saint Augustine, FL
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The cycles were taking forever, then would not finish, water running in even when it was supposed to drain. Unplugged washer and water would still run, I had to turn off the water valve. I just removed the top with phillips screwdriver, removed the old valve by uncoupling the water hose, the two electric connectors and the two one screw holding it in place. It fixed the problem completely, washer working 100% now.

Hot water hose leaking, it was cross treated (twice) by the installer, would not warranty it the second time.

Water leaking on floor

The repair video was almost perfect. I would not have even attempted the repair without the video as I am not a handyman at all. The diagnostic feature based on the symptoms was invaluable. I originally took the front of the washer off because I thought the rubber seal around the door was leaking.It was like 67% of the problem. But after checking the front seal carefully, I determined it wasn't. The next most likely issue as only rated 19% but when the water inlet pipe, I was actually tickled to see a crack in the plastic pipe. I ordered on line on Monday and with the cheapest shipping, I received my part in the mail on Thursday. I would highly recommend using Part Select for diagnostic, parts and repair. I will definitely use again. If I could make one recommendation to Part Select, it would be to do a close up during the video when the technician is working with a part, i.e., the wiring that goes around the rubber seal.
