Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
The bellow became twisted with the clothes. I have untangled. Now I need to know how to put it back on along with the metal hoop with the spring. Or does it need to be replaced?
If the metal retaining clamp is still intact and the spring is not broken or stretched, it can be reinstalled. Inspect the bellow and make sure it is not damaged as well. If this is a simple matter of reinstalling the bellow along the door frame, follow these steps:
1. Install the bellow back over the frame of the door opening ensuring it fits snug all the way around the door opening.
2. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Make sure to wire spring points towards the bottom.
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.
It may 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 the bellow was pulled completely off the wash tub as well, follow the steps in this link:
Make sure the rear clamp on the tub facing is in good condition. Do not overtighten as this can damage the clamp and seal. Also make sure all the small dispenser hoses that penetrate the bellow are installed correctly and not broken.
If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you,

You may need to replace the bellow and the band that holds it on they don't usually just fall off.
