How to Replace the Balance Ring on a GE Washer
« on: February 08, 2012, 07:43:31 PM »
Hello,

I need to replace the balance ring on an older GE top mount washer, model# WBSE3120B2WW, but am unsure about removal of the old part. It looks like ther are roughly 8 torx screws connecting the balance ring t o the inner tub. Do these screws need to be removed and then use a hammer to bang the ring off the tub?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you for the response. When these leak do they tend to leave an oily sheen on the water and the sides of the basket?

i think so, does it have a hole in it?, once you pull it off, should be leaking or empty.
