Yep. This is the correct answer, although in 2018 they removed the manual load size selector. Wonder if they reverted to the old design.

We have a GE standard washer and gas drier. Stupid easy to repair. Go easy on the softening chemicals, clean occasionally and they will last forever. Leave the washing machine lid open when you're not using it to avoid mold and mildew.

Actually, just fix the old one. It's built better than anything new guaranteed.

I put a little piece of velco on the door and on the side of the unit to keep it open like 6-8 inches.

This was an annoying lesson we learned about front-loaders. They will grow mold and get disgusting if you don't do this.

Front loaders never go mouldy!

If you do these three simple tricks - your doctor will hate them!

This is the GE I was talking about. $500 off the HD price at Costco.

Looks like a plinth with a storage drawer for all the PC case fans and mould spray

RGB PC case fans? I wouldn't get it unless it was all RGB.

no problem there, you can also install a mini tablet so you can stream You Tube while you wash the drool towels

i have front loader samsungs. never had a mold issue, mostly because i leave the washer door open after its done. Usually when i wash its a 'wash day' so there is no real downtime from start to finish. Usually takes a few hours, but after last load just let it air out

Completely torn down.

Tub and drum. I'm going to clean it up, buy a new bellow, hose, and put it back together. The bolt on the back pulley was loose. I think that's why the drum was rubbing against the tub. At least I got the answer as to what the problem was.

Need something to do with your time? Take your washer machine apart and clean it. Now I can see why repair people won't take a machine completely apart. It takes hours and they would need to order a new bellow and hoses. Instead they tell the customer to buy a new machine. Taking the front off and cleaning the drain hose, yes, that can be done in an hour after watching a video on YouTube. But taking off the back and removing the entire drum is a complete tear down. Something I learned from watching the videos, if there are clips holding wires in place, put a socket on the clips to compress them, then they pop out without breaking.

All those mods, all the fans, and all the cleaning and drying in the world...and that thing is still mouldy as hell.
And you are a conscientious guy, yours is probably the best around.


Those things are disgusting and probably a health hazard.

Just buy a top loader and save the problems

It cleaned up nicely. The stuff in the pic up above is caked on soap. I sprayed it with Fabuloso and wiped it off with a rag.

Found the boot seal on Amazon for $105.
Amazon.com: Electrolux 134616100 Bellows Kit : Appliances
Arrives in 4 days, then I can put it back together and see if it works.

Nice work but your housekeeping sucks. Tidy your tools up as you use them, don't leave aerosol tins lying on the ground and always put screws and bolts in trays.
