Question:

Washing machine made a loud noise the seal between the tub and front door spun and twisted took the front spring loaded ring off in the tub lower than the door opening. Thought i could just been the seal back in place but the tub is about 2 inches lower i had to prop it up from the bottom to get to line up with the door. I think i have more than a seal issue. I need suggestions what to do next

Joe for model number WBVH5200J1WW
Answer:

Hello Joe, Thank you for your question. I would actually suggest that you take the back panel off of your machine and take a look at your rear drum and bearing. It sounds like perhaps the Drive Pulley or Rear Drum assembly might have broken. I hope that helps!

Answer:

Hi Glenda, Thank you for your inquiry. Leaking can be caused by multiple parts. You should determine where the water is leaking from on your appliance. If your door switch is not working, you may have to replace it. I have linked the correct part for your model down below for you. Good luck with your repair.

Water leaking from the door.

I had to replace the door gasket because there was a small piece that had torn away, which caused large amounts of water to leak when the load of laundry was too big. Smaller loads of laundry would just produce a little bit of water.
Unsure of how to replace the gasket, I used a phillips screwdriver to pull the door and front panel off. I thought that this would be pretty simple, but I soon discovered that it wasn't as simple as removing several screws and pulling the pieces off. The door was easy, the bottom panel was easy, but the front panel was held in place by screws, plastic tabs, the front of the gasket (I'll explain later), and gravity by means of plastic supports. Trying to find and release the tabs, lifting the panel up and out was not self-explanatory. I finally figured it out, and it made changing the gasket out, a breeze. The gasket is held in by two diferent wire spring clamps/bands. One band holds the gasket to the outside of the tub, and the other band holds the gasket to the front panel. Before removing the front panel you must remove the first band which is cleverly hidden by the face of the rubber gasket. Just peel it back...it's in there. I was able to pull/pry this off with a screwdriver because I was not worried about damaging the old gasket. The second band had to be removed with either a 6mm/7mm wrench(I can't remember which) or a stubby phillips screwdriver. The stubby screwdriver is handy because of the proximity of the tubs counterweights. Once the final band is removed just peel the gasket away from the tub, after taking note of how it came off. Put the fully loosened band on the new gasket and fit the new gasket into place. It helped to have two sets of hands to work it around the tub, but probably not necessary. The wrench is necessary to properly tighten the band, because you cannot get enough torque on the stubby screwdriver.Once the gasket is in place you can re-install the front panel, and secure the front of the gasket to the panel. Install the band and it will secure itself by the tension of the spring. Put the door back on and you are ready to wash clothes.

The rubber gasket on my front loader had a rip in it and soap and water would leak out at the bottom making a nice puddle to walk in on.

I read and reread all of the installation repairs everyone had sent in. Everyone said on the average it would take 1-2 hours. I partly started the install myself and the ran into a problem. My wife was my helping second hands( second hands is a great help) and she suggested to either google or YouTube the repair. Within minutes I had found one on you tube and it help me tremendously. it had the exact model washer on the video and the install was a breeze. I would recommend looking up the repair cause they show step by step video and makes it a lot easier.

Removed the three screws behind the top panel and slide it back to remove. Removed control panel then the two lower screws on the front panel the spring around the front of the gasket and slid up the front assembly to remove. Door lock was on front panel held by 2 screws and then loosened clamp around back of gasket and the gasket removed easily. The installation was easy nothing special to do and the problem was solved.

The door boot seal gasket ripped during a load.

I took the outer retainer clamp off and pulled the outer seal off the front of the washer. Then pushed the seal inward to see the rear seal and its wire clamp. Took a philips head screwdriver (short handel) and loosened the clamp. Pulled the clamp out and then the rubber boot. Put new boot on the tub (rear - this took a little while to make sure the seal was correctly in place.) Make sure the boot is lined up with the two hose connections. Intstall wire clamp, this took some time because there is not a whole lot of room to get your hands in there to tighten. Connect the two hoses to the boot and the boot to the front of the washer. Install outer wire clamp. Done.

Excessive mildew buildup

With a wife that doesn't check pockets before doing laundry, it's important to check the drain filter located under the removable panel below the door of our front loader washer from time to time. It had been a while since I cleared this filter and there had been some standing water and drainage problems with the machine for a time. I believe the standing water and the fact that our machine is located in an un-heated utility room in the house has lead to an excess of mildew buildup on the main gasket of the machine. I believed it too far gone to save. No leaks, just a nasty looking gasket. Anyway, the new gasket had obviously been improved from the original design. The rubber seemed to be thicker in some areas from the original and also included a handle of sorts that looked designed to ease future removals though it didn't help in the installation. The install is moderately difficult given the confined space to work with. Getting the back retainer ring in place and tightened down was very difficult. I would say it took about 45 minutes. I believe the new gasket is a better one than the gasket it replaced. Again it appeared to be bolstered with more material than the old one. This is a good thing considering the paperclips, change, and hair clips I found in the filter. FYI, a short narrow handled Philips head screw driver would have helps quite a bit. Anyhow, it's on and working just fine.

Rip on gasket (maybe from a caught zipper)washer leaked

I was able to get the 1st metal ring After trying everything to get the 2nd ring off I ended up calling a repairman. It was just too hard for me get my hand into the area to loosen the ring. It took repairman over 1 hr to complete job of installing the boot. After spending o$300, I just just shook my head. Hats off to the other people able to do it.

Water leaking due to rip in door boot seal

I won't bother repeating other people's comments. My repair took a bit over 2 hours. I watched 2 different videos and thought the repair was doable. To remove the first wire band holding the boot seal to the front panel I found using an awl to grab the eyelet near the spring was easier than using a needle nose recommended in the video. To remove the second wire band I used an offset screwdriver. One video I watched recommended removing the lower counterweight to get at the band's screw - I did not do that. Putting the new boot seal into the first groove and installing the wire band was the most time consuming part of the job. I did not have extra hands to help. I recommend the second pair of hands for that part to save time. The rest of the install was easy.
