Some differences in installing the door gasket on a GE vs. Frigidaire front load washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 02 May 2011 · 788 views

Thanks for the assistance and for the great deal on the parts. I was able to make the repair, took a modest amount of time and still had some cold ones leftover while I sat and watched the test run.

For anyone interested in specifics, here are a few variations on my GE model from the Frigidaire in the post I referenced for the repair:

  • I was able to lean my machine back and did not uninstall the door
  • no glue was present, which eliminated the need to razor blade the old gasket off
  • no 3/8" copper tubing tool was needed; the fitting for the soap/bleach just fits right inside
  • the inner spring was held tight by a screw assembly...this was a bit of a bugger to get off
  • the replacement gasket seems to be much higher quality than the original (yay!)
  • I also took the time to clear the trap in the bottom of the machine (yet again) while it was tilted back and walked away with 36¢, a nasty kids sock, some miscellaneous tidbits, and four hairpins (time for yet another leture with the wife about the hairpins)
Cheers to you all!
