Apparently yes, and Reliable Parts carries quite a few washing machine parts. I would call Home Depot and ask if they can get the rubber ring for you.

Hi - Thanks for reaching out to us and for choosing GE! We are sorry you did not find the information in the manual and apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. We are happy to help. It adds the bleach from the dispenser to the water as it is filling. Water is directed into the bleach dispenser during every cycle. If there is bleach in it, the water will combine with the bleach and goes down a tube to the wash basket during the fill. If there is no bleach in the dispenser, the plain water still goes down the tube to the wash basket. We hope this is helpful. Keep in touch at GEAppliances.com. Sue

Good washer
My new Lennar home features all GE appliances. I am interested in purchasing the pedestal for both the washer and the dryer. However every place I go tells me the pedestals have been discontinued because my model washer and dryer has been discontinued. Please tell me where I can purchase these two items directly or whether or not a universal Pedestal is available. They are quite low on the floor.

Great washer with minimal issues.
Purchased this after the motor went out on our last washing machine of 10 years. Chose this model due to features, load size and good reviews. Only issues so far after 7 mos of ownership have been that the door needs to stay open, or cracked, when not in use. If not the water mold smell becomes atrocious. This occurs even when we regularly use the drum cleaner cycle and appropriate chemicals. Second issue is that if you don’t load the washer perfectly during the spin cycle it will shake so bad that if you have anything on top, such as your bottle of sprinkles or even the detergent it will vibrate them off. I’ve had to clean up multiple spills from liquid detergent (cracked the bottle when it fell) and powder items such as oxyclean, till I learned my lesson. I will be installing a shelf above the washer in the future to hold the regularly used cleaning supplies to avoid having to bend over and use the lift cabinet frequently. The last issue I have is the drip line that occurs from water gathering in the gray rubber gasket just inside the opening. As I open the door repeatedly the water will drip from the lowest point and then the genera dust from doing laundry will build so I wipe it down when I see it start to hold dust. I left it on the pic included for others to see. Other than that the washer has done a great job cleaning clothes, handling large items such as mid size comforters, and generally is fairly quiet minus the notification dings which aren’t too disruptive if your machine is away from the living area. Unfortunately I live in a mobile home so it took awhile to get adjusted to the sound. Would buy again. Would recommend to a friend. There are 4 adults in the home and the washer handles regular sized loads (4 shirts and 3 pants with socks and undergarments or 6 towels) without issue.

Terrible Product
Have owned this washer for less than 2.5 years. It is terrible. It has stopped working 3 times now. The last repair person (today) said I need a new motherboard that will cost over $300 + labor. What a joke. Not sure I’ve ever owned a lemon this bad. Run from GE appliances.
by Tim
Love the options!
I love my front loader machine. I would have given it 4.5 stars if that had been an option. My only issues are the labels are disappearing after just a year even though I only wipe down with damp cloth (water only), and you must leave the door ajar after use or it will get a musty smell.
by Santiasong
An excellent washer but...
The washer itself works beautifully, but there are finishing issues with the exterior case. Metal seams do not fit together correctly, leaving unsightly gaps. Hopefully this will not affect anything overall in the future.
