I can't find the door rubber seal for my front load washer. I only have a model number and serial #xc2121464 and I need help.
Answer Hello Dale,
We need to ask you to please verify the model number on the units' I.D. tag. The one you posted doesn't come up as valid. The only way we can locate the correct part number is with the correct model number, so if you could re-post with the correct model number, we will get you the correct part number as quickly as possible.
The rubber seal that is visible when you first open door to my front loader is ripped at the bottom causing water to leak out the front. It's the gray rubber piece that goes all the way around when you open the door, but I don't know what it's called or which part I need to replace it. And how easy is it to replace?
Answer Hi Tabatha, There were two different seals used on your model so you need to look at your old one and see if it has a drain hole or not at the bottom and then order the one you need. Part# 4986ER0004F with a drain hole or 4986ER0004B without the drain hole. Now, you don't need a "professional" to install the boot/gasket but be ready for a little frustration. Installing the boot on the tub cover and door opening can get frustrating, but take your time and take pictures (during the removal) if needed, so everything gets back together properly. Here are the step by step instructions for the boot bellow . Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Turn off the water supply to the washer. 3. Remove the top cover and the console. 4. Remove the lower front access panel. 5. Open the washer door. 6.

To remove the door switch assembly: a) Pull the bellows off the lip of the front panel beside the door switch assembly just enough to access the switch assembly. b) Remove the two T-20 Torx screws from the door switch assembly. c) Pull the door switch assembly out and turn it over so that you can access the connectors. d) Unlock the tabs and disconnect the three wire connectors from the door switch terminals, then remove the assembly. 8. To remove the bellows: a) Remove the two T-20 Torx screws from the door switch assembly. b) Remove the front panel from the washer. c) Turn the bellows retaining clamp screw counterclockwise until the clamp is loose enough to remove it from around the bellows.
