The bellow or door boot looks warped on my Maytag 3000 series front load washer. The washer is less than 2 years old and I just noticed the bellow looks twisted or warped, but it is not disconnected or...


Check the clamp on the bellow to see if it has come loose and shifted. You may be able to adjust the bellow and clamp and tighten it. If you need the parts, here are the links to them.

The rubber boot is called the "door bellow". The following link explains how to replace one:

If the bellow is not ripped or torn, you probably will NOT have to replace it. If the front bellow clamp (wire hoop) is the only thing that came loose, you will need to reseat the bellow around the door frame opening and reinsert the bellow clamp. The link explains this in Step 12 (I suggest you use a second set of hands to assist you). Now...if the bellow is torn, or if the clamp is damaged, you will need replacment parts. Let me know if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.

The rubber liner is referred to as the "bellow". This is a fairly simple repair job that any do-it-yourselfer can accomplish on their own with proper guidance. The following link explains how:

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

Read through the link thoroughly before you begin any repairs. If this seems like a job you can accomplish, then a replacement bellow can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the locate item number 5 under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading. The part number is 8182119. You may want to inspect the wire hoop retaining ring that holds the front of the bellow to the door frame, and the rear bellow clamp that attaches the bellow to the wash tub facing. Sometimes they also require replacement. They are listed as items number 14 and 6, respectively. You may not need these parts, but thought I would mention them just in case.

NOTE: When installing the bellow make sure you ensure the alignment mark (arrow) is in the 12 o'clock position when placing the bellow on the front of the wash tub. This will ensure that the bellow does not twist, when the tub is in motion. Also, make sure you do not overtighten the rear bellow clamp on the wash tub. This is a band type clamp that tightens with a 7mm nut driver. Tighten to make it snug and make sure that is does not leak. Overtightening can cause damage to the clamp and/or wash tub facing.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance. This repair may cost you TWICE as much (or more) if a repairman does it.

Questions about the Bellow?


If the door bellow is twisted, it may just be a simple matter of a clamp that has come loose allowing the bellow to shift. If its the front clamp located around the door opening, this can easily be resolved by removing the clamp, repositioning the bellow and reinserting the clamp. If its the rear clamp, however, you may have to remove the front of the washer to gain full access to it. There is an aligment mark (arrow) on the bellow at the 12 o'clock postion where it meets the wash tub. You need to make sure the arrow is pointing straight up. The following link explains how to replace a bellow:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385210-replacing_door_bellow_kenmore_elite

Use this link even if you do not decide to replace the bellow. It provides good information on how the bellow is installed. Bottom line, if the bellow is not leaking, and you can resolve the twist, you do not need to replace it. Make sure you inspect for cracks or tears. As far as the additional components are concerned, inspect the clamps that you have before buying new ones. I've only had to replace these clamps on rare occasion. Last of all, "Yes", this is a job for a do-it-yourselfer. Its a little time consuming, but can be accomplished easily by following the link I provided. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS You may check repairclinic.com to see if they carry the bellow at a lower price. They offer competitive pricing and often carry the SAME part for less.

Kenmore Bellow Replacement


Make sure the drain holes are clear in the bottom of the bellow. Also, make sure the bellow is aligned properly. There should have been an alignment arrow at the 12 o'clock position. Hope this helps.

Worn out bellows


The bellow definitely should not deform in the manner that you describe. When you replaced the bellow, did you line it up correctly? There are alignment marks (Arrows) on the tub and the bellow to ensure it is installed correctly? If the bellow is not aligned correctly, it will twist when the tub spins. If the shocks are worn, the bellow could also deform, but you would probably experience excessive vibrating during the final spin. If you are sure the bellow is installed correctly, and wish to replace the shocks, let me know. There are four of them on your washer. I believe they are sold in pairs. If you post your complete model number (located around the door opening), I can assist you in locating parts.

KENMORE H3T WASHER GREY TWISTED FRONT SEAL


I am currently replacing this bellow because of holes and five years of wear and tear. The bellow is attached to the front door assembly via a spring loaded clamp. This clamp is a solid large wire ring with loops on each end where the spring attaches. You do not have to remove the spring, just place a screwdriver between the bellow and the ring or spring to remove. This will allow you to take off the bellow from the lip of the front door assembly to reposition. The spring clamp goes on starting first from opposite of the spring and working in both directions a little at a time. ALL DONE.
