LG washer retaining ring problem

I'm having trouble getting the retaining ring that holds in place the door seal boot connected on my LG Tromm front loading washer. Any easy way? I'm having trouble expanding the spring enough to hook the two ends of the retaining ring together.
I understand LG has a specialized tool for this, but hopefully I can save the 40 -60 dollars for a tool I'll use only once. Thanks in advance guys!

    Ok. I have the rubber seal on and in the groove where its supposed to run. I also have the retaining ring in place but am having trouble stretching the spring enough for the slack necessary to connect the eye of the spring and the hook end of the other end of the retaining ring. Dang thing keeps popping off slightly at the last second. More hands would be nice but aren't available. Any ideas to stretch the spring and guide it over the hook at the same time? Ahhh to be an octopus!

Get a second person to help you. Just slowly start at the top. Have your hands go down each side tucking it in and have your friend prevent it from coming out. I know it's a pain but it can be down. That tool is a life saver.

Water leak out the bottom of the door when it running door seam lose


If the washer is leaking water the front door boot seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The boot seal can be replaced. This part can tear when the washer is overloaded. This is common repair.

Water leaking out of door , seems like it might be a problem with the door hinge ?


Not likely that you have a hinge problem, but it can happen, especially if water has been dribbling down the back side of the front panel from the dispenser area, getting on the hinge, and causing it to bind up. Replacing the hinge is a pain because the screws are put in with thread lock, requiring heating or even drilling in some cases. If you have water dripping down the front of the machine from the door, the most common reason is that there is some lint or hair on the bottom side of the glass door, preventing a complete seal to the gray rubber gasket. Generally, just cleaning off the bottom of the glass door will fix it. If that does not do it, you can try moving the spring clamp (which holds the front of the gray tub seal) from the bottom (6 O'clock position) to the hinge area (9 O'clock position) Sometimes, the leak is caused because someone pushed the washer into place by placing their hands just below the door and actually deformed the metal front panel inward, preventing a seal between the door glass and the gray tub seal. If that is the case, it may be corrected by removing the spring retaining clamp, taking the front of the gray tub seal off, pulling outward a bit on the metal panel at the bottom of the door openings, and replacing the seal and retaining band again.

The front seal of washer holds water and it smells!


As the Door Boot Seal is convoluted it will hold a certain amount of water when the cycle is finished

Have you tried placing a wad of kitchen roll into the area to soak up the excess water before you close the door ?

Replacing door gasket


Depends on which machine you have but essential it is all the same. There will be a ring on the outside of the seal( outside of the machine) take that off and fold the seal ove into itself. Or even fold it into the drum. Than you can reach the retainer ring on the outside of the drum. remove that one and replace in the opposit sequence.
Aint to hard but just a little annoying to do.
Good luck

Metal ring aroound rubber seal fell off.


Start with the spring at the bottom, work the retainer around until the seal starts to pull away from the washer. Now grip the loop that the spring attaches to on the side that isn't in place and open the retainer. Push the retainer in place and release the spring.
