The bearings went out on our LG front-loader washer. Wound up taking it completely apart & replacing the lower tub assembly. Went together fine, but I'm not sure about the door seal/gasket. Is the inner spring really going to keep the gasket in place. Seems like the gasket has a lip that fits over the lip on the tub, but the spring clamp is in front of this & not squeezing any part of the tub itself. See attached photo. Our seal also has 3 drain holes...with nothing to catch any water below them. See second attached photo. Is this right? I'm anxious about putting it all together, only to have it leak.
ANSWER Hello Karen,
We believe the boot has been put on inside out since the three holes should be on the inside. Also, the boot should fit on the outer tub and the tub ring should clamp it onto the ridge on the outer tub.
