So first off I am new, but the Samurai said I could find help ordering and putting this door seal gasket on myself (part 4986EL2004A). It just slowly became loose and came off at the bottom of the inside of the dryer door window and I could not get it back in for anything, then slowly over time the entire seal just came off. I'm ready to call a repairman, It's out of warranty and LG recc. some clown outfit that keeps forgetting to call me back.

Sears Repair has the part, with 8.99 shipping (not available in stores) and isn't available for 1 week. I have serious doubts I can put this part on. Please help if you can.

Thanks, spaceboy

If the GASKET is not torn---it should be reusable.

This is a fairly simple task.

Remove the *phillips* screws on the HINGE.

Place door on a mat or towel.

Remove the screws from around the perimeter of the door and pry/separate the inner ring.

Reinstall gasket/reassemble.

Having an assistant helps & taking a photo or two with your cellphone camera is a plus too.
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
