it is very hard to get the ring on front load washers,
it is much easier to remove the top. bottom and the front control panel
then the door and support panel.
now you have access.
some times you have to remove the counter weight in some models before putting on the ring.
if you can do it without removing these items you are very very good.

SOURCE: how do I replace my

Here is how you do it. 1st remove the door & hinge, 2nd remove the covers on the screw where the door sits that holds down the control panel. 3rd remove two screws holding the door latch in place. Remove the spring & wire holding the boot on and pull the boot loose from the plastic holder Remove the plastic boot holder. You will now see the boot where it attaches to the tub. There is a spring and wire that holds that on. At the top there is a tab on the seal, grab it and pull towards you. The boot will come off. To reassemble I remove the counter weights(concrete weights) from the tub and put the boot firmly into the slot on the tub. Now reinstall the rear spring. Be sure to also reinstall the counter weights if removed and torque them tight around 25 to 30 foot pounds. Reassemble the front panel and put the spring retainer back on. Tools needed T20 torx driver, 13mm wrench, and needle nose plyers.

SOURCE: Lots of mold and mildew stains on front door seal.

Easy, try running a cup of white vinegar thru the wash cycle. I sell and fix these and it usually work everytime. good luck

SOURCE: Our Bosch Nexxt washer uses very hot water on all

there is a mixing valve that uses a solenoid to open and close (and mix) the hot/cold inlet water based on your selection.
If you verify the correct model # I can point you in the right direction for a new valve if you are so inclined.

I mounted the ring by myself. Here's how:
1. Get a small piece of 2x4 that's longer than the spring will be when it's expanded. You basically have to stretch it less than an inch.
2. Nail two 4d nails to the piece of 2x4 close to the long edge. Again, about an inch or so wider than the compressed spring. Nail them so only about 1/4 of an inch is exposed.
3. File the head of the nails so they are relatively smooth to allow the ring to slide off easily.
Note: Wear eye protection just in case the spring snaps.
4. Hook one end of the ring (not the spring) to one of the nails and use a pliers to stretch the spring to hook the other end of the ring to the other nail.
5. Set the ring into the gasket groove making sure the spring is in the 6:00 position.
6. Hold the spring in place with one hand and gently push it off on of the nails. The other nail should come out easily.

This may take a couple of tries.
