Open the door and remove either the outer bellows spring (newer models) or use a putty knife to scrape the glue around the bellows to release it from the cabinet lip. At this point lean the machine back to give more space between the drum and the cabinet.
Remove the kickplate for easier access and to visually check for leaks later.
Starting at the top, pull on the bellows firmly (close to the tub) until it comes out of the groove. Once it comes off you will see the bellows spring.
Install the new bellows starting at the top by aligning the marks (arrow on the bellows top and arrow on the tub lip). Work your way around until bellows is properly seated snug against the tub.
Here it gets tricky, it might be easier with an extra pair of hands but there's less room. Some bellows kits contain spacers/plugs which will help to "hold" the spring as you stretch it back in place. Work from the top down on both sides at once. Either use the spacers/plugs or have someone hold the spring in place as you work your way around.
Once in place, lay the machine back to level and reinstall the front of the bellows to the cabinet. Either re-install the outer bellows spring or re-glue the bellows to the cabinet. If this is not done you risk a water leak.
With towels handy (just in case), let the machine fill and agitate for a few minutes and check for water leakage. If all is well, make sure machine is still level by try to rock it diagonally from the top (if it rocks, lower the leg that is lifting). Re-install the kickplate and wash some laundry!
