Clamp I got a 644646 clamp which keeps the door rubber liner in place. It is a thin metal ring with a spring. Cannot get it to over the liner without buckling the liner. Is there a tool or trick to installing?

    My ring came off before possibly due to excess laundry.
    My son just fixed it again We were both working on it. I was trying to hold it in place to no avail. It would pop off at another spot. He finally tried it on his own. He thinks the trick is making sure the rubber seal is well seated before attempting to start manipulating the ring.

I use a needle nose vise grip at the top, make sure not to puncture boot. put it around the left side, then i use small screw driver to hold spring on one side, then pull the other side of spring until it goes over boot. Be carefull not to stretch spring to far.

To get the clamp back on you'll need to fit the rubber part on first. Then begin working the wire part of the spring clamp back on, starting 180 degrees away from the spring. As you work it back on and into the groove, it will become harder to get on. When you can't go further, carefully lever the wire and spring over the lip and into place with a small screwdriver, or similar, being careful not to pinch or tear the rubber bellows.
Best regards,

Amana NFW7200TW washer - door seal ring has detached


The ring is a clamp that keeps the rubber part, called the bellow, attached to the front panel of the washer. To reinstall hook the edge of the bellow around the lip of the opening in the front panel (the hole through which you put your laundry). Then take the clamp and seat it in the groove of the bellow behind the lip of the front panel. The spring on the clamp should pull the bellow tight to the opening of the panel.

Like so:

Rubber door seal came off along with metal ring. How do we fix it?


If you are referring to the wire hoop with a small spring, this is the front bellow clamp. The bellow is the rubber door seal. Around the perimeter of the seal where it attaches to the door frame, is a small groove in the rubber. Make sure the rubber bellow is properly seated around the door frame opening, then the wire hoop inserts into the groove in the rubber to hold the front of the bellow affixed to the door frame. Without it and the bellow will eventually come loose and the washer will leak. To reinstall, just follow these steps:

1. Make sure the bellow is firmly seated all the way around the perimeter of the door frame.

2. Begin inserting the wire hoop into the groove, starting at the twelve o' clock position.

3. Work your way around the four and eight o'clock positions. While maintaining some downward pressure to keep the hoop inserted in the groove, pull the spring apart and snap the wire hoop back in place.

A second set of hands may come in handy to hold the hoop in position to get it reseated. Make sure the wire hoop ends up at the 6 o'clock position when you are complete.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Overloading the washer with heavy items can contribute to premature wear on the bellow and can cause the clamps to come loose.

First you can put on the door boot back on more easily by puting some water around the metal and/or rubber to lubricate it. After its seated to satisfaction the spring clamp can go on, usually with the spring to the left side, but it's prefference. the clamp will simply go on around the rubber and hold it in place. The door makes the pressure seal. Hope this helps.

Thanks

The rubber piece in the front of the washer is pulled up and the metal large ring is not in place not sure how it goes back on


If you are referring to the wire hoop retaining clamp that holds the door bellow (rubber gasket) in place, it installs the following way:

1. Install the bellow over the frame of the door opening and ensure its seated and snug all the way around the perimeter.

2. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop into the rubber groove of the bellow that is located around perimeter of the door frame. Make sure to wire spring points towards the 6 o'clock position.

3. As you work your way around the door frame to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, you will need to maintain some constant downward pressure while pulling the spring apart in order to get it to snap into place.

It would be helpful to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this as it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.

The wire hoop is known as the front door bellow clamp.

If you have any problems, or further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Problem with fixing the rubber boot on a whirlpool duet washer


The ring where the boot goes seems to have been warped by old age, over loading or over tightening. Best call a pro and see if they have the roller tool that resets the valley for the boot and clamp.

Metal ring fell off


If you are talking about a small metal hoop with a spring on one end, it is the outer bellow retaining clamp. The bellow is the rubber door seal. The retaining ring inserts into a groove in the rubber seam around the perimeter of the door where it attaches to the door frame. To reinstall, first make sure the door boot is fitting snugly around the door frame opening. Sometimes when the retaining spring comes loose, the rubber may pull away from the door frame. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Make sure the wire spring points towards the bottom. As you work your way around the door to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, you will need to maintain some constant downward pressure while pulling the spring apart in order to snap it back into place with your thumbs. It would be advisable to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this as it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.

If this is not the spring you are talking about, please post back and elaborate a bit more on what the part looks like to see if I can assist you better. (i.e., size, dimension, where you found the part, etc.)

I hope you find this information helpful.

A wire ring came off


Hi Bert,

That ring (it has a spring on it, right?) is used to clamp the outside of the rubber boot to the outside of the frame <--- where the door closes.

All you have to do is open the door and kneel down in front of the washer. Now, with clamp in hand, work it back into the groove around the outside lip of the boot. Here's the thing you have to know... That spring? It MUST be located at the 6 o'clock position! So when you are putting this thin back, just make sure the spring is located properly.

The reason? Frankly, I don't know. But the Kenmore/Whirlpool service repair manuals say so! So that's what I do, HA!

Anyway, If you don't replace that clamp and you continue running your washer that boot will dislodge from the front panel. Know what happens then? Call Noah, cause there's gonna be a flood.

Hope this helped you! If so, would you please be kind enough to rate me? Thanks!
