washer still leaks
I replaced the tub seal(who2x10032) on a ge top load washer(wbb4500e1ww) and it is still leaking water. The new tub seal went in pretty easy. I replaced the washer, split ring and nut in the same order they came off. Did I miss a step? Thanks for any help.Answer
Typically when you install the seal you have to tap it in with because it is very tight. If it went in very loose this there is something wrong.
This happen to me a few years back and I thought that the new seal was faulty so I got another and it did the same thing. On that occasion I had to end up putting a new tub in the machine because the seals were not fitting into the seat tight. I have only seen this once and heard of one more case. You can try another seal but I fear it is the tub.
Before you jump to this conclusion make sure the seal is down in the seal seat all the way so that it will seal properly.
