I need help finding a part. I'm replacing the tub seal on a GE top load washer. It's a common looking model iv'e seen many times but on ordering the tub seal the one that is delivered is too small by about 1/16 inch. The model of washer is GUSR2150DAWW. (No mistake on model number) The part the supplier sent twice now is pt# WH02X10032 But it is the wrong part. It just drops into place with no force at all and is a little sloppy. It should need a little force to install of course or it will simply come out. The old part and the one they sent look very much the same except that the new one is a little smaller OD.

Does anyone have the proper part number so I can finally order the one that fits?

also, a picture of the model number tag on the Washer ?

Hi

Ok. I have 3 pics for you. This does not have a control board. it's a mechanical timer model. FYI. The old seal took a bit to knock it out and looked (and felt) like it was a press fit. I also did not notice any type of glue residue on the old seal or tub seal hole area. The hole for the seal is 2.510" while the new seal is 2.505" so although the new seal is only slightly smaller it certainly is not press fit. I can push it in with a finger and pop it right back out again with just my little finger. Any other seal I have ever done took some pressure to install. not just drop in.

According to this repair clinic video it takes no force at all to install the new seal.

The one I have takes less force than even this video shows. I think maybe the area where the seal goes in may have enlarged slighty over the years. I believe now that I do have the proper seal but it's never going to stay put by how loose it is. So I used a special waterproof sealant/glue to set it in place. I'm pretty confident it will have no future problems related to the seal instal job. Thank you all for your help. The video was perfect.

Always order an outer tub when doing a seal job on these older GE washers.  I learned that the hard way.

I dont think there is a GE worth repairing for any amount of money. I usually bring the customer one of my recon dumpster direct drive 110/whirpool washers for around 130 bucks. Did I mention that I hate GE appliances?

We will not work on GE top load washers. Usually the repair cost is more than 3/4 the price of the machine.

Totally agree with that!  Have not been on one GE top loader call yet where it made sense for the customer to do the repair.  Good policy, Brother Durham-- you've inspired me.  

 

Their front-loaders, OTOH, are pretty decent and are well worth repairing.  But you're starting with a higher priced machine.

I've replaced a few inverter motors on the Hydrowave washers, the repair costs almost as much as the machine was brand new, but my customers didn't want to bother going out  to buy a new machine.
