If the outer door spring came loose, the following link will explain how to reinsert it:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385211-replacing_door_bellow_whirlpool_duet

The link explains the entire procedure for replacing the door bellow (rubber boot). Read line item 12 for instructions on how to reinsert the outer spring.

What can cause this spring to come loose is over stuffing the drum to the point where items are getting caught in the door boot and pulling. I don't know if this is your situation, but offered the advice just in case. The salesperson will often advertise that these washers can be packed FULL. "The larger the load, the better", I have often heard. While the washer DOES perform better when more items are in the drum, resist the urge to over load.

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

I have the Samsung WF448AAP/XAA clothes washer. The large retainer ring for the front door seal came off somehow. Its a heavy gauge steel wire loop with a spring assembly integrated into the loop. How...


You need to reinsert the door seal back onto the door frame and replace the spring clamp back on. The spring is fairly heavy duty and it will require some muscle to get it back on. Good luck

The rubber gasket around the drum opening is leaking and rusting


You can replace it by lifting the lip of the rubber around the edge and finding the wire where the springs connect there you can stretch the springs apart, remove the wire and pull off the rubber. Just make sure first that is where the leak is, sometimes a leak in the soap dispenser water tube can seem like door gasket leak.

I replaced the door gasket on my bosch 3200 washer and it leaks water when finished


If oit has only started to leak since you changed the door gasket, then it suggests to me that it is not fitted correctly.
make sure you have the inner retaining spring or clamp securely fastened .

The door won't close.


replace the door lock assy, you can't fix this without almost certainly breaking it by prying with a flat screwdriver. Remove door boot spring, fold door boot back over door lock area, unscrew door lock screws (3), then remove from harnesses and replace. Reverse door boot and spring removal, top of spring first, then work your way down ensuring a good snug fit with no water leaks, it may take you a couple of trys.

LG WM2032HW gasket replacement


I have changed these without disassembling the unit. Just remove the spring from the gasket, then peel back the gasket to remove the inner spring. This is the easy part, getting the inner spring back on is a pain in the neck, but it can be done. The spring will give you problems either way. Good Luck

I have a Maytag Neptune Front Loader. I am trying to replace the door seal because it leaks but can not get the machine apart.


For replacing the nuptune boots, I belive these are all of the steps. First, take the 2 phillips screws out of the door hinges. You should be able to lift slightly on the door and pull it towards you to remove it. Also remove the 2 phillips screws straight across from them. This will let your front panel come of (grasp up top and twist slightly to get it off the clips. Lower the front down and you can remove it from the washer and set it aside. Remove the 4 phillips screws from your soap/ fab softner dispenser. Next, remove the 2 5/16 screws that hold the top on to the front of the washer.
To remove the boot, first, pull the front part of the boot towards you. It will actually pull off without much effort. On the bottom (depending on model) there will be a tube at the bottom of the boot that is either stoppered up or connected to a black hose. Squeeze the green clamp to remove the hose if it does have one. To take of the back half of the boot, we're back up top. Lift the top of the machine (you may want someone to hold it or just slide the machine far enough forward the top can stand up by itself). You will see a large spring connected to what looks like a piece of cable coated in clear plastic. Pull the cable towards the front by the spring. It will quickly contract.
Reinstalation time. Take your new boot and install the back half. As you work the boot on, you will see some triangles all the way around to help you line it up correctly. Once it is on, it's time to re-clamp. This is the tough part. Typically what I do, is I make sure the cable is wrapped around the boot from the bottom with the clips at the top. (there is a nice notch for it to fit into) Next I take one side of the spring and attach it to the clip on the cable making sure that the hook side of the spring points up. Now, grab the clip on the cable (without the spring attached) with a pair pf pliers. I use a pair of needle nose pliers to grasp the spring. Now I stretch the two of them together. This will not be easy and the spring will be under some tension. Once the spring is on the clip, lower the lid. (there will be a black wire harness on the right hand side that needs to be tucked back into place for the lid to close properly. Screw the lid down. Re-connect the hose at the bottom of the boot if your machine was equiped with one. Push the front part of your boot back on. Put your door back on the clips where it sits. Lift slightly on the door and swing it closed. Run a test cycle (fill, tumble and drain) while you are standing there to check for leaks. Once you have verified there are no leaks, replace the front panel and your screws. If you run into troubles, message me back.

Check the wire ring that goes around the rubber seal located just inside the door - we had to call a repair person out one day because our door was leaking, and he told us it's important that the spring be at the top of the door opening to prevent leaks from happening. He had a hard time moving the spring to the top but that seemed to help.

A few months later we found a water leak from our soap tray, so we had the tray replaced under warranty, although I'm not sure that helped because the replacement looked identical to the old one. It only leaked when we used powdered Oxyclean and liquid soap in the tray at the same time; the leaking water ran behind the front cover and dripped out onto the floor all along the front of the machine, mostly near the left corner, but we stopped putting Oxyclean into the tray & the problem stopped. Hope that helps.
