Product Description

Tub Seal Specifications

The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. Its the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft. If your washer is leaking during the fill cycle, or at agitation time, your tub seal may need to be replaced. You can check if the tub seal needs to be replaced by watching that area during an actual fill cycle. Take off the front panel, or if it is a front-loading washer, the rear panel. Without touching the washing machine, observe the place where the shaft of the transmission comes into the tub and the weep holes at the housing of the rear bearing. If there is water leaking, the tub seal is at fault. NOTE: This seal is difficult to replace and should probably be installed by a qualified technician.

Grease on the cloths
For model number WKSR2100TAWW
Hi Stanley, Thank you for the question.Normally when your clothes come out with grease marks it is due to the Tub Seal. If the seal needs to be replaced it can let grease from the transmission into the tub of the washer. Hope this helps!

No question. Just a comment that might help some folks get the agitator out. I had gotten the story about just pulling up and it will pop off. Ha! No amount of effort would get it to budge. On other projects i have found the application of heat to be very helpful in loosening tight components. In this case, i let enough hot water into the tub to achieve a level above the drive block and let it stand 10 or 15 minutes. Drained the water and pulled the agitator off with hardly any effort at all.
Hi Bob, Thank you for your insight Bob! Have a great day.

My tub is leaking water when it is washing clothes
For model number WPRE615OK1WT
Hi Lamar, Thank you for your inquiry. If your tub is leaking water, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the drain hose, the tub seal, the drain hose clip, the pump to tub inlet inlet drain hose, the drain pump, the spilt ring, the tub bearing, the hub washer, the flood gasket, the water inlet valve and the tub bearing. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Replacing tub seal. Video shows agitator just popping up when grabbed from skirt. Mine comes up a short distance (1/4 - 1/2") and then feels like it is blocked by something. Afraid to force it too strongly, the agitator cap came off easily, but don't see any bolt . Appreciate any help.
For model number WDSR2080DAWW
Hello Bill, thank you for your question. Sometimes, the agitator can become stuck and you will need to use quite a bit of force to remove it. Other customers have indicated that they had to work the agitator side to side quite a bit as they were pulling up, in order to get it removed. The agitator for you appliance simply pulls up and off the drive block, there is no bolt holding it into place. I hope this helps!

This is the response i received: "hello bill, thank you for your question. Sometimes, the agitator can become stuck and you will need to use quite a bit of force to remove it. Other customers have indicated that they had to work the agitator side to side quite a bit as they were pulling up, in order to get it removed. The agitator for you appliance simply pulls up and off the drive block, there is no bolt holding it into place. I hope this helps!" i tried pulling with force, but the agitator doesn't seem "stuck or frozen". It comes up slightly: However, it feels like it is hitting something that keeps it from coming up any further.
For model number WDSR2080DAWW
Hello Bill, thank you for writing. If the agitator is not budging, and won't come loose by following the previous instructions I would recommend contacting the manufacturer directly for more information. From the model information, schematic information and other stories from customers it seems like it should just pull up. I was able to find a helpful tip from another customer. They indicated they got a length of rope, or strap of some kind that will slide up under the agitator. You will then use leverage to work your way around the agitator and slide it up and off. There is an agitator bell under it that it clips to. This has probably become stuck or seized slightly, which is resulting in the difficulty removing the agitator. Good luck with your repair!

I have a machine that appears to be leaking down in the area of the tub seal. Is there a recommendation of what parts usually or should be replaced while replacing the seal. I don't want to order the seal only to then find out other parts should have been ordered. Same question for the replacement of a knob dial should i go ahead and order a compression ring, knob and clip?
For model number WPSR3100W0WW
Hi Richard, Thank you for your question. There are no recommendations for parts you should change at the same time with this part and the same with the knob as well. As long as all of your other parts are in good condition you should be able to reuse them. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Tub seal leaked, rusted the transmission bearing which locked up
I followed the instructions in the GE Consumer Service Training Technician Manual Pub. No. 31-10008.

I also power washed the basket and tub before reassembly.

The tub seal comes with the transmission and brake assembly so it's not necessary to order another seal.

The agitator coupling kit contains a redesigned coupler and longer screw with new o-ring.

I bought the hub nut, split ring, tub bearing, agitator coupling kit and washer hub because these are all the parts that go on the transmission shaft. I felt it was best to spend a few dollars more to replace every part involved with the spin and agitation of the washer.

I used the channel lock and a hammer with a shortened handle to remove and replace the hub nut. Use caution as the nut is aluminum.

The entire job took 5 hours.

Water leakage from the bottom of the tub through the shaft seal
Thanks to comments already summited to Partselect I was prepareed for the worst. Once I figured out that you remove the agitator assembly with a swift jerk I was able to access the lower portion of the tub. As others have found out the aluminum nut holding the inner tub can not be removed without a hammer and chisel. Once you get past that things go well. What is left is cleaning the components and re-assembling.

Grind noise becoming worse
Used the repair instruction paper behind the washer control panel and used the online parts diagram. Also the online responces from other customer repairs gave me the idea to take a small pipe wrench (with a sock over the bottom of handle) and tap it with a 10 lb sledge hammer to remove the alumium hub nut. *** It is a backwards threaded nut **** I did not know I was going the wrong way until I looked at the new nut and noticed it's reverse threaded!!! After that it was just taking everything apart and putting it back the way you found it.

Washer was leaking where the tranmission entered the tub
Based on other research, the location of the leak indicated that the main tub seal needed to be replaced. I took the washer apart before ordering new parts in case I broke other parts in the process and to be sure I could. I ended up having to cut off the Agitator Coupling and really marred up the hub nut. Those were the hardest 2 pieces to remove since they had corroded badly after many years of use. I had to use a pipe wrench and a hammer to remove the hub nut and a hack saw to get the agitator coupling off (air bell).
$68.00 and 2 hours later, the washer no longer leaks.

Loud noise, burning smell during spin cycle
The video with Steve is invaluable. I followed the video to replace the tub bearing. Had to jump over to the tub seal video to make sure I got it seated into the outer tub correctly. The tub bearing video skips past the seal part. Be aware that the video cut aways can be a considerable amount of time. Highly recommend a few things: 1) if you think you need to replace one of the things on my parts list (bearing, washer, seal, etc) then just replace everything at once. It's not worth it to try to reuse old nasty parts. All of the parts + 1 11/16 spanner wrench came to around 60 bucks. 2) get the washer out of its confined area and give yourself some room to work on it. I took the time to shuffle it out into my garage and setup a table to spread out the parts and tools. This procedure is a complete washer dismantle job. So take your time and be patient. 3) the aluminum hub nut is a bugger. I had to use penetrating oil and make a couple of small angled cuts with a hacksaw to relieve the tension between the nut and transmission shaft. 4) the main lower tub bearing (bushing) was also a bugger and all gummed up and rusty. Be very careful getting it out. You don't want to ruin the integrity of the outer tub cavity that it goes into. Light taps and patience using the butt end of a hammer and flat blade screwdrivers. From beginning to end, with a few breaks to let the penetrating oil do its thing, it took about four hours. I took my time, reviewed the videos throughout that time, and I've never worked on a washing machine before.

Excessive agitator side movement
Bought all of the parts to remedy this. It ended up being the top transmission seal/bearing which is not a replaceable part. I could see the shaft moving side to side. But the parts diagrams are not detailed enough to show that when assembled.

She led a good life.

My new side loader is SO MUCH BETTER AND INSANELY EFFICIENT. I highly recommend making the change if you need a transmission..

Water leaking through Tub Seal
First and foremost, the job would have taken 2 hrs instead of 8 hrs. The problem was that no one on the help instructions said that the Hub Nut had a LEFT HAND thread and suggested to just break the nut off. Well, after chiseling off most of the nut I drilled small holes through the nut and removed the nut pieces. However; I learned that I had damaged the transmission seal and had to buy a new transmission $183. Had I known this the job would have taken much less time and at a cost of about $50.
PS: The washer runs great.
