If you open the front door and look at the edge of the bellows gasket, you'll see a wire retainer that secures the outer lip of the bellows gasket to the main body of the washer. Once you remove than with a pair of needle nose pliers, you can pull the bellows gasket off the washer body and look inside to find the 1/4" or 5/16" nut clamp that holds the gasket onto the inner drum.

Be very careful when installing the new bellows gasket to get the water inlet section properly lined up with the fixed water inlet port, since you don't want to tear the new bellows and have the same problem all over again. This is a relatively easy repair and can be done by those with very limited experience, provided you take your time and are careful in handling the bellows gasket to prevent damaging it during the installation phase.

Here's a link showing the bellows gasket and the two (2) clamps that hold it in place. (Please copy and paste, as the link didn't fully load as HTML.) The 2nd link is the full sized view of the parts. AND LATCH PARTS&documentId=W0501061&backToLink=Return to Sub Components list

SOURCE: My front loader leaks water

There should be a spring loaded clamp on the outer panel and a screwed together wire clamp on the tub. You may have a water inlet clamp on this model and possibly a drain clamp at the bottom center. Take your time so you do not tear the new one. If you are really a go getter you can remove the top panel of the machine, the control panel, the door lock, the bottom panel and the entire front of the machine to gain easy access to the tub side of the boot. Remove the outer spring loaded clamp first before attempting to remove the front panel.

On a 2003 hummer h3, if the outer cv boot is damaged, do both inner and outer need to be replaced?

  • Boots only need replaced when they have been negated and are leaking grease. However, the time effort and money to replace just one boot when the other is right there might bite you if the other boot needs replaced in the near future. However, if upon inspection the boot is not torn, worn and the knuckle still performs well you do not need to replace that boot.

  • Hope this helps.

My 1993 850 has a pulsation in the sterring while in a turn. The feeling is like the pump is pulsating.

Hi, this is usually caused by a worn out CV joint on one or both axles. Check to see if the boots are torn open. There are 2 boots on each axle. If they are torn, the joint is likely to be worn out or will soon wear out. Replace any axle with a torn boot. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Ford fusion front end noise when doing tight three point turn or manovers

popping noise when turning is usually caused by worn CV joints. Inspect CV boots for tears. Torn boot will allow dust to get in and cause wear. If boot is torn, replace CV joint or entire shaft (usually easier). If boot is not torn, grab shaft next to each CV joint and see how much movement you can cause in the joint. If one CV moves more than the other three, that one is probably bad.

Cv boots torn do I need to replace axels

no but it is easier to replace the whole axle, and fairly cost effective considering the amount of work and the special tools to make the job of replacing the boots easier (slidehammer with attachment etc.) and very messy.
If the inside boots are torn take a close look at your motor mounts. they could be bad and cause the inner boots to tear.

Mechanic says i need new front axles......

Usually once the boot is torn, dirt goes in, and all of the lubricant goes out. If you have been driving it this way, it will damage things faster. Normally you hear a "click" when turning out of a bad cv joint.It is a safer solution to just replace both, but of coarse, not cheaper.

How often to replace cv boots/cv joints/axle?

If something off the road tore the boot, yes but if it has not been tore long and you don't hear any clicking noises around corners, you can just replace the boot.

When i turn left i hear a knocking sound from my steering and i also can feel it when im pressing on the brake

What year and how many miles on the Kia? I suspect your axle boot is torn. This is a rubber boot that goes around the axle to protect it from dirt, water, and crud it would be exposed to when driving. As the car ages, the rubber will crack and split, allowing road debris to enter the axle assembly. When this happens it isn't long before the axle must be replaced. If you can look under the car at the center of the front wheel, check the boot for damage, splits, cracks, etc. You may see a lot of grease in that area, another sign the rubber boot has been torn, and axle grease is leaking out and being spread around. Have it checked soon, as the other side is either about to go, of already is beginning to. I just replaced the axles in my 92 Honda w/ rebuilt axles for only $50 each, but there is a lot of labor involved in changing them, so it isn't a cheap fix. Let me know what you find in your inspection, but it does sound like a bad axle due to a torn boot. coountrycurt0
