Question about Whirlpool GHW9100L Front Load Washer
The front door bellows seal is broken ,would you please to help me how to replace it?
i need to replace the bellow seal--please e-mail me the service manual on the GHW9100LW1.
Unfortunately the service manual will not tell you how to replace the bellows.
Tilt the machine back to create more space between the front on the door and the outer drum. Remove the screws for the kickplate and remove the kickplate for easier access. Open the door and remove the spring clamp holding the bellows to the door opening lip. Push the bellows into the drum to get access to the outside/ rear of the bellows (where it connects to the drum). There you will find another clamp which you loosen/ remove with a socket. Some models have an overfill tube on the top of the bellows (remove it from the bellows). At this point you should be able to completely remove the bellows.
Align the new bellows to the outer tub. Attach and tighten the inner clamp (be careful not to over tighten and periodically check the bellows and clamp placement as you're tightening to make sure it doesn't slip off). Attach the overfill tube (if equipped). Lay the machine back to level and install the front of the bellows to the door opening lip. Re-install the spring clamp by starting at the top and working your way down both sides (may be easier with 2 pairs of hands). Be careful not to overstretch the spring on the clamp.
Test with a quick fill and let it agitate for a few minutes to ensure there are no leaks (be ready to hit cancel and have a few towels just in case it leaks). Re-install the kickplate, make sure machine is still leveled correctly by trying to rock it diagonally from the top. Enjoy clean clothes!

The lock mechanism is in the lock position with the door open. I think 7 yr. old with a screwdriver. I tried to pry up on the plastic piece but seems kinda week. From what I can see the way this machine is put together, it's going to be a day project in getting to this thing from the back. I still don't know if I can remedy the problem in doing so. Any suggestions!!!
