did hte rear clamp come off or just the front spring. assuming its just front spring.carefully reinstall the boot over the front lip assy . easy enough!!here comes the fun!! the spring itself goes to the bottom of the rim.So hang the wire over the top of bellow and feed into the lip evenly as you go down both sides as soon as you get your hands to the 9oclock and 3 oclock positon I then change grip on the spring (use the tips of my fingers palms facing front assy and strech whole pushing down and in. I used to find small spring style clamps would work great for holding the wire in place till it would "pop" into place. a third hand is also very useful to hold in place .

First remove the bottom kick plate at bottom. Then tear off the front of the bellows from around the door. Inside there is a big hose clamp holding the inside if it. Remove completely.
Now,put the inside on first, Tightening the inside clamp. Easy so far, right?
My trick to the outer spring:put a little liquid detergent or soap on out bellow where spring attaches,start at top and work it down and around, use needlenose pliers to help with hard part. Good Luck.

you need a 1/4" nut driver and a spanner wrench-start by taking 1/4" screw located toward lower part of agitator,its recessed,take it out,then lift out agitator, then mark where your drum is so you get replaced in that location(counter-weights)then take spanner wrench and loosen nut that holds the wash tub and lift out tub,turn tub over and w/rubber mallet driveout old seal,to aid in new seal install lightly lube with vegetable oil(wessonoil-pam cooking spray) and tap seal into place and re-install in reverse order

Candie, The tub gasket (door seal) is part number #WH08X10022 with a new substitution part #WH08X10036. However, since each model can be slightly different, depending on the serial number which denotes when it was manufactured, you might want to confirm that the above gasket is the correct one for your particular washer.
I'd suggest you call the folks at Sears Parts Direct at 1-800-252-1698 and give them your complete model number AND serial number before you start in on the repair, so you can be sure you have the correct substitution bellows gasket.
It's a relatively easy repair, all you need to do is remove the spring retaining wire around the outer edge of the bellows gasket, just peel it back at the edge to see it. Now locate the locking loop by going around the rim. Once you find the locking loop, you can remove it using a couple pairs of small needle nose pliers as they make it easier to get off.
Once you've done that, you'll see the locking plate that holds the back side of the bellows gasket onto the outer washer tub. Remove those fasteners and you can get the bellows off and start in on putting the new bellows onto the washer, just reversing the order you used in the removal process.
Here's a line drawing that shows the exploded view of the tub section, with the gasket (item #306). Just take your time removing the old gasket so you remember what you're doing and when installing the new gasket so as not to rip or tear it in the process. I'd also suggest you let the gasket relax for a good 4-5 hours (to get the kinks and folds out of it from the packing box) before you do the installation.
Here's another link to one of my other solutions for installing a bellows gasket on a GE front loading washer that you can also review for more installation tips, etc.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: how to change the bellow
The bellow does wear out with age and can also become mishapened from repeated pressure from the door being closed. Over time the bellow can stretch or develop rips and tears and begin to leak. If the bellow is leaking, or no longer sealing correctly, the following link explains how to replace one:
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
All these sites are reputable and have great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: If you leave the door OPEN between washes this will help prevent constant pressure on the door seal which can stretch it out of shape over time. It is also beneficial to allow the wash tub to air out to prevent mold and mildew from forming. Also DO NOT overload the washer. This can contribute to premature wear of the door bellow and cause rips and tears.
