My Repair & Advice
First checked pump and connections to tub, they were OK, front gasket only other option left. Removed 2 rear screws on washer top and slid back a bit. Unscrewed 4 control panel fastners, need TORX drivers !, and tied up out of way. Lower panel already removed, pops out from left side facing machine, 1 screw in ,middle and then slides a bit right to disengage right side tabs, DONT PRY ON RIGHT SIDE. Removed outer spring band and removed gasket from outer panel by rolling out of flange. Removed 4 screws at bottom of front panel and then disengaged plastic snaps on bottom of panel. Panel then needs to be slid down a bit to disengage top tabs. Removed door, inner spring band and removed gasket. Replaced gasket maintaining drain on bottom and connected air vent on top of gasket. Reversed strip down steps. found tear in top of gasket after 9 years of service. Good Luck !!
