Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer
I replaced the bellows on my kenmore he2 front loader, but am having trouble getting the wire that has the spring on it back on. how do i do it? thanks
THIS WORKS!!! Don't read any further. Somebody deeper in this thread came up with this. Pure genius! Take a short piece 6" to 7" long of wood. A 1 x 2 worked great for me. Drive a couple of nails into the narrow edge 5" apart. Nip off (or cut off, I used a Dremel cutting wheel) the nail heads to leave about 1/2" of nail shaft sticking out. Put the loop of one side of the wire, not the spring, and stretch the spring and put the other loop over the second spring. The loop is now big enough to fit over the boot lip. Dress the loop around the boot to sit in the groove. Press the wood against the boot edge and with a small screw driver, push the wire loops off the nails. This makes the wire loop replacement so easy, I am going to keep the little streatching jig with the machine. With the outter boot edge released, it is a snap to clean the area around the front of the outter drum. This is one of the areas that builds up the gunk that makes these washers smell. With replacing the boot clamp this easy, I am going to make this job part of the regular mantanience of this washer. Good luck with your job.

This is often a very tricky process. The easiest way I know how to get the inner spring back in place is to use two sets of hands and work through the door and through the bottom panel as well. Follow these steps:
1. Remove the lower panel under the door.
2. One person reach through the door opening and insert the spring in the bellow groove, starting at the top.
3. Work the spring around to the 3 and 9 o'clock positions and hold in place by keeping your fingers on the spring in the groove.
4. Have a second person, laying on their back, reach through the bottom panel and grab the lower half of the spring on each side with both hands.
5. While the first person holds the upper portion in place, the second person pulls straight down and works the remaining portion of the spring in place.
This is the best way, I have been able to accomplish this. Make sure you use a type of applaince adhesive to reseat the outer portion of the bellow to the door frame if this is the glue on type. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know.
