Replace Rubber Seal on GE Front-Load Washer

We recently moved into a new house, and acquired a front-load GE washer that conveyed with the house. Unfortunately, the rubber seal on the door is very mildewed. Despite efforts to clean it, we cannot get rid of the odor and mold, and we would like to replace the seal if we can.

The washer is a GE Model # WSSH300G0WW. Is it possible to replace the rubber seal? If so, can you tell us what parts we would need and whether this is something we could do ourselves?

Thanks!

When an appliance doesn't work properly or gives out it can be very disappointing because you don't really know what is wrong with it or you might even have to buy a whole different appliance. A suggestion I have for you while you are waiting on your response from an expert is visiting the Sears Parts Direct website. I have attached the link below if you are interested in viewing while waiting on your response from an expert. Hope this helps, good luck

On this type of repair you will need to remove the top & front panels in order to access the door bellows part number; WH45X10075 $206.99

searspartsdirect.com

I have provided you with step by step instructions on accessing & replacing the door bellows for your GE washer. Please click on the image below.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

Sears Home Services

.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

Thanks BikerDave for the very helpful information! I'll take a look at the directions and the machine all at once, and let you know how we make out. $200 for the part is steeper than I expected - But I guess it is better than having to buy a replacement machine, right?!
