LG Tromm Washer Gasket Replacement
« on: July 07, 2010, 04:26:24 PM »
Hello all, I am new here and I am about to tackle the job of replacing the washing machine door gasket on my LG Tromm. I need to post the model number, but it is the one with th 3 holes that get clogged and gets all full of mold and mildew. Does anyone have a step by step manual on how to change that out? I have the gasket already, but it sounds like i need some specialty pliers? Thanks in advance!

be sure to also get ther inner tub tool which is more difficult to put on, using the wrong tool for this cost me 13 stitches. also if you have a water bottle with a little bit of dish soap added helps get the gasket on easier.

The outer spring tool is unnecessary, just use your knee and both hands.  I haven't done a boot replacement on these yet, so I don't know if the inner spring tool is needed or not.
