Are you talking about the thin wire closet to you... if you are, you'll find a small bend in the wire where you can pull it out. It is right next to a spring on the wire.

    If you are talking the spring looking retainer thing...closet to the tub... you'll need to carefully (like with a flathead) get under the spring and pull up slightly. it pops right out. Once you get it out, you'll notice it connect to itself s on one side... but you really can't see that till you get it out. Which ever spring, retainer you are talking about they are both easy to remove. I just did both. Now I need to get a replacement boot.

    the one closest to you is called the fastening ring. The one closet to the tub is also called the fastening ring but it is not a wire but a long spring. Looks very different.

How do you replace the door seal on a Bosch Nexxt front load washer?


Tilt the m/c back and remove the clamp securing the seal to the front of the cabinet, double the seal back inside the washer door opening, and then pull the retaining spring off the inside of the door seal which is fitted in a groove at the back of the seal.
Refit the new seal starting at the topmake sure the seal is fittef the right way up, drainage holes to the bottom.
Work the seal on all the way round the drum, and then roll the spring into the groove at the back of the seal and work it round all the way round the seal, you will find it easier if you have someone to help hold the spring in place..
Refit the seal round the front of the cabinet,and refit clamp at front.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.

How do I replace my boot gasket on my Bosch Nexxt washer?


Here is how you do it. 1st remove the door & hinge, 2nd remove the covers on the screw where the door sits that holds down the control panel. 3rd remove two screws holding the door latch in place. Remove the spring & wire holding the boot on and pull the boot loose from the plastic holder Remove the plastic boot holder. You will now see the boot where it attaches to the tub. There is a spring and wire that holds that on. At the top there is a tab on the seal, grab it and pull towards you. The boot will come off. To reassemble I remove the counter weights(concrete weights) from the tub and put the boot firmly into the slot on the tub. Now reinstall the rear spring. Be sure to also reinstall the counter weights if removed and torque them tight around 25 to 30 foot pounds. Reassemble the front panel and put the spring retainer back on. Tools needed T20 torx driver, 13mm wrench, and needle nose plyers.

Metal ring aroound rubber seal fell off.


Start with the spring at the bottom, work the retainer around until the seal starts to pull away from the washer. Now grip the loop that the spring attaches to on the side that isn't in place and open the retainer. Push the retainer in place and release the spring.
