I ordered washer door boot wh08x10036 and it didn't come with a band clamp. Did I order the right one if not can you give me the right part number.
For model number WCVH6800JOMS
Hi Tyrone, Thank you for the question. You did order the correct boot for the model number but the clamp is sold separately. The part number for the clamp is 1019932. Hope this helps!

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
For model number WBVH5200J1WW
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!

Door boot bellows became twisted. Replaced it but tub doesn't line up with the opening in door and filler spout distorts the boot. Tub appears too low and off to one side. Thoughts?
For model number WCVH6800J0MS
Hello David, I would recommend watching the video that shows how to install this part on our site, under part number WH08X10036. It may be that the spring clamps are not holding the gasket onto the tub which allows the gasket to move with the Tub. I would suggest looking at the inner and outer bellow clamps. I hope this helps!

Installed a new door bellows. The old one became very twisted while was still installed. When attaching the full tube at the upper left the bellows is almost too low. Attaching it causes the bellows to be pulled upward out of shape. When putting the door panel on the edges of the bellows where it should meet the opening in the door is off by about 3 inches. Is there a suspension part i should look for that failed that would cause the drum to drop twisting the original bellows and new bellows to not line up with door opening ? New bellows is in the tub grove and clamps seated properly. Door and tub do not align even without the bellows. Thanks.
For model number WCVH6800J0MS
Hi David, Thank you for your question. For information on how to install the door boot seal, there is a video listed with the part on our website, that you may reference for help. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

I had smoke coming from the unit during the spin cycle. I read a similar questions to this problem. And read your response. My question is what is making the unit smoke?I also found several small lengths of grey rubber pcs inside the drum.
For model number WCVH6260FWW
Hello David, Thank you for the question. If the grey rubber is coming from the Boot Seal, it might be lose and getting caught and rubbing on the drum. I suggest replacing the boot seal if there is damage to it. I also suggest checking the belt. Hope this helps!

I have this same problem as included below. Occasionally the washer gets a rapid knocking when spin drying so i stop it and restart it, which allows the cycle to complete without the rapid knocking. The barrel seems rigid (no movement/slop to indicate a bad bearing). Can you provide detail information on how to determine if a part is defective for each of the items you recommended checking? If all these parts are required, they will cost upwards of $600 for parts alone. If it is just a damaged (rotting?) door seal, then that is manageable." i have seen so much smoke came out during spin cycle, plus when i open the front door i have seen little rubber pieces. scott uysal march 25, 2018 answer: hello scott, thank you for your inquiry. we would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: drive pulley kit, drive belt, motor kit, and door boot seal. hope this helps!"
For model number WHDVH660HW
Hi Tony, Thank you for your question. A washer making a loud noise during spin cycle can also be caused by a faulty drive pulley. The pulley is what the belt (if applicable to your washer) rides on to spin your washers tub. The pulley can be made of plastic or metal. It could be simply worn out or just loose. The only way to know if the parts are defective is to inspect them and if they are electronic parts, you will need a multimeter to test them. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Broken Spider Arm
We ultimately rebuilt this washer because I love it so and it was one-half cheaper to rebuild than to buy new! We watched videos and researched the repair and then dove in. Yes, we had to tear the machine down but really it was not that bad of an ordeal. It ended up being much easier than we initially thought but once all the parts arrived we fixed it!
