Front load washer tub leaking

(1/1)

Jorn:
Our washer is leaking from the bottom of the tow outer tub shell halves.  How difficult is it to repair? I am guessing that the gasket has failed between the two halves?  When I do get the new gasket does it go on dry or would a small bead of silicon help?

Model GLTF1040AS0

Jorn:
Forgot to ask.  Which is the proper repair manual for this washer?

niobrara:
Dry ,try tightening the screws and see if that might stop your issue.

Jorn:
Yeah, tried that and still leaked. Is this type of washer a major pita to pull the front off? I'm a Service Tech for an apartment complex so I have a moderate understanding of appliance repair.

tgoods:
Determine which screws are leaking.  Remove the screws and drill out the holes.  Replace with a nut and bolt. 
The tub is removed through the back.  Should take 1 to 8+ hours to replace the gasket depending how good you are. :)
