ok if you look around the front of the rubber seal you will see a wire holding it in place on the wire there is a spring if you pull the spring off with a pair of pliers the door seal will just pull off the cabinet then take off the lid and you will see the wire that goes around the door seal where its held onto the drum some have a screw on it and some just pull off then give the seal a good pull from the front of the machine it will pull off quite easy then just push the new seal into place and replace the wire thankyou
Reinstalling that rubber seal is a lesson in patients. There is a metal lip on the machine opening and a cooresponding groove in the rubber seal. These two need to be mated together. That's the easy part. Once together, the retaining wire and spring go around the rubber seal just on top of where the rubber seal goes over the matching lip. It will take several tries, the spring may be small but it's very strong and difficult to stretch. Good luck.
1. Unplug washer. 2. Remove the outer portion of the door bellow. This is the gray rubber boot around the door. Feel around the edge of the door bellow where it attaches to the front of the washer. You will find a wire retaining hoop in the seam between the rubber and the front case. Follow this wire hoop to the bottom of the door bellow and you will find a tension spring. Carefully, stretch this spring apart and remove the wire hoop. 3. Pull the rubber bellow from the door facing on the front of the washer being careful not to rip or tear it. Once removed, fold the rubber backwards inside the drum so you can access behind the front panel. DO NOT remove the rubber bellow from the wash tub. 4. The door latch assembly is located behind the front panel of the washer on the right hand side. Locate and remove the three screws on the washer front that hold the door latch assembly in place. The whole assembly should come free from the washer front and be held by a plastic mounting bracket and several wire connectors. 5. Carefully remove the latch assembly from the plastic mounting bracket BEFORE attempting to unplug any wires. It makes it much easier to access if you do. 6. Unplug the wire connectors using care not to break any of the wires. You may want to write them down, but I believe they will only plug into their respective slots. 7. Remove the old door latch and install the new one in the reverse order of the steps I just presented to you. Plug the wires back in first, then place the whole assembly back into the plastic mounting bracket, and then reattach to the front of the washer. 8. Now, when you get the reinstalling the rubber door boot, you may want to get the assistance of a second pair of hands as it can be difficult sometimes to manipulate the wire retainer back into place. Carefully reattach the rubber bellow to the door facing on the front of the washer first. 9. Starting at the top of the door bellow at the 12 o'clock position begin inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Work your way around with both hands to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. (This is where you could use those second pair of hands). While holding a slight downward tension on the wire hoop to keep it in place, pull the tension spring apart enough to snap the remaining part of the hoop into place at the bottom. Once you've completed these steps make sure the door closes and latches properly. NEVER slam a door with an electronic latch. They can break easily.
Now plug the washer back in and test operate. NOTE: You can run diagnostics on these washers by referring to the tech sheet provided by the manufacturer. The tech sheet is located behind the lower panel under the door, or along the interior cabinet walls. Included, are instructions on how to run diagnostics and troubleshooting tips associated with the list of fault codes. It is recommended that this tech sheet remain inside the washer to prevent it from being lost.

The spring goes around the door seal it needs to be stretched around the small lip that holds the seal in place. The spring is where you grab it with needle nose pliers. the spring goes on the bottom. You will see where the rubber seal has a wider spot this is where the spring should be right at the 6 o'clock position. This is a little tricky to do the first time trying but keep at it you will get it.
If you are referring to the front bellow clamp (wire hoop with small spring), it reinstalls by following these steps:
1. Install the door boot back over the frame of the door opening and make sure you fit it snugly all the way around. Once seated, you should see a seam or fold all the way around the perimeter of the door where the rubber fits of the door frame.
2. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove in the rubber around the perimeter of door opening. Make sure the wire spring points towards the bottom (6 o'clock position).
3. 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.
4. 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 you have any problems, or need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: Overloading the washer can contribute to premature wear of the bellow and similiar problems to what you just experienced. Refer to your owner's manual and follow their recommendations for proper loading.
Refer to step 12 where it explains how to reinsert the front bellow clamp after ensuring the rubber bellow is seated properly all the way around the perimeter of the door opening. If you need further assistance please let me know. I hope this helps you.
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.
Yes it can be put back on without taking the drum apart. The larger end goes on the drum side. Fit larger end around drum lip make sure it seals all the way around, install spring around seal. Smaller end goes around door opening. Install seal around outter lip and install spring around seal.
