Default Replacing Tub Seal Ge Profile
Model Number: WPSQ3120T9WW   Brand: -brand-   Age: Less than 1 year

(This is a GE Profile washer that is over 10 years old. Somehow I managed to improperly fill out the Brand and Age fields.)

Washer leaking from center of tub. This problem was repaired by GE technician approx 6 yrs ago & I believe they replaced the transmission & tub seal. Since transmission seems fine to me (no noisier than usual & washer runs great) I've decided to try and just replace tub seal this time.

I know I need the spanner wrench & have found lots of solid disassembly info on the net...but I have 2 remaining questions.

1. Is it proper practice to remove the tub as though I were replacing the transmission in order to install the new tub seal, or is it fine to replace the tub seal without removing the tub?

2. A video I saw suggests using an emery cloth to clean the portion of the "transmission stem" that is exposed inside the tub, then to dry and apply a white grease to this stem AND to apply same white grease to the new tub seal before installing. Is it proper/necessary/ideal to apply this white grease to both parts or either, and if so, could you please please tell me the name/type brand name of the specific grease to use? Also...is there a proper amount & proper method to applying this grease in order that is will not enter into the tub during washing?

I'm a fairly new DIYer and will appreciate any and all information you are willing to relay. I thank you very much for taking the time to respond and to help.

GE will not release tech info but this site has several repair manuals. See if they have one that fits your model.

Thanks for the reply SidFink...unfortunately nothing for my model.

I found a different GE model/coin operated manuel there that mentions the tub seal and says nothing about silicone grease - and I found a maytag model manuel there that mentions the tub seal and does discuss using a silicone grease.

I don't have any experience to know when/why it's necessary or not or when it's a bad idea to use it. So I can't even guess why it might be appropriate on the maytag but not on the GE coin operated model. Or what either of those might have to do with my particular GE model.

I appreciate the help and welcome any other replies that might help me yet resolve the question.
