I posted earlier about replacing the door boot seal for a Samsung


WF448AAP/XAA

I was wrong earlier it was not a XAC but a XAA, so it was the US Model.

So I order the part and follow the instructions.

DC64-01570A

BUT WAIT! The hose nozzles don't fit the new boot!

Looking at the old boot the model number is:

DC64-01570A HJ1

the new boot is

DC64-01570A HJ2!!!!

Looks like a different revision code! Dang, no dealer seems to differentiate between HJ1 & HJ2, WHAT DO I DO NOW!?!?

A common problem for servicers as well.

If both gaskets are the same size (I am sure that they are)---but the new gasket does NOT have the necessary holes for various plastic nozzles from the old gasket...

Simply poke a hole in the area of the new gasket for the nozzles.
Use a sharp razor tool or pointed tool (scratch awl).
Add silicone grease (or dish detergent liquid) to the nozzle(s) and force it through the "new" hole.
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"
