Thanks for the posts- it gave us the guts to try. We did find taking the front panel off definitely helps. We have no real experience but do have common sense. The hardest part was loosening the screw that holds the inner spring because of the close quarters. When putting it back on, we positioned it with a little more space to reach the head of the screw- we still had to use a very small screwdriver. Overall I think it would only take about 45 minutes if we worked straight though. With a little more experience, it would even take less.

You will need something long to get a phillips bit up there to the screw.




Hello,

I ordered a part for my washer and the new part is wh08x10036 (it does not look llike the old part for my 3 year old washer). Apparently I have the same model as everyone else. WHDVH626fww. The new boot that I received from Appliance Pros is a thicker, darker boot. It has a rubber gripper part on the inside top right (that the old one did not have). I called and they said its the replacement part. I can move get it almost on, except for the bottom, where I cant get it onto the tub.

Do you know how I could get the older, original part? The new one is re-inforced on the tub part and not as flexible as the old one.


Regards,

Todd Stolusky

Did the new boot that you got look like the old one? The one that I recieved did not. They say that it is the replacement of the older one. But, it sure doesnt seem to fit. I hate to pay someone $130 to come out and put it on. (Even though I know it should take them less than 30 minutes) The said the pricing guide is 2 hours at $65 an hour.

Thanks,

Todd Stolusky

I'm having the same problem. My machine is a WBVH6240FWW. My gasket isn't ripped. It just seems to have come off the lip of the front of the machine, so water leaks out. I took a peek under the lip and found this loose clamp wire that hooks together with a spring. The one that has been described in this topic earlier has a screw connecting it.

Good luck.


Gene,
Thank you for those documents. The Front Panel Doc refers to three other documents (Control Panel, Service Panel, and Door Lock). Is it possible for you to post those as well. Thank you so much.

Finally got the new gasket on. Took a while to stretch it on and get it over the lip. But I'm definitely glad I tried it myself, and didn't pay the $340 the repair shop wanted. Couldn't have done it without this thread and the great documents provided by Gene. Thanks!

Thanks to the users of this forum and the documentation. I was able to replace the front door gasket with minimal effort. It was very nice to have all the docs to know how to remove and reinstall the top, control panel, access panel, front cover, and gasket.

I would also like to give thanks to the website for having the part I needed, in stock, and at a great price!!

Hi,

Will these instructions work for my washer WBVH5100H0WW? I looked at the site and it is telling me that the replacement gasket is part AP4334050. Can you please confirm? I just discovered a huge rip. I feel ripped off! I guess I am quite lucky - my washer is 2 yrs old.

Thank you for all the responses to this thread. I feel like I can do it even if I am a novice (with lots of guts!)

Thanks again!
