How do I change the Bellow seal?


You really don't want to know, but since you asked......... Remove spring clamp around front of seal by prying under it and peeling it off. The easy part is now done. Peel away seal and stuff it inside drum. Look or feel for screw on clamp around seal thats still attached and loosen clamp screw. Peel seal off and remove. Wipe away any crud on flange. Install new seal starting at the top. Make sure top and bottom of it are perfectly centered. Push seal onto flange all the way around, feeling your way around. Once on and its centered properly reinstall clamp and tighten. If its the flat metal type of clamp do not overtighten or it may come off in wash cycle. Install outer seal to front and reinstall clamp by putting spring on first, wrapping rest of clamp around as much as you can, then holding one end of spring ( I use my knee or you can use small screwdriver) and using needle nose pliers grab other end of spring and stretch it while putting rest of clamp on. Have fun!

I have the Samsung WF448AAP/XAA clothes washer. The large retainer ring for the front door seal came off somehow. Its a heavy gauge steel wire loop with a spring assembly integrated into the loop. How...


You need to reinsert the door seal back onto the door frame and replace the spring clamp back on. The spring is fairly heavy duty and it will require some muscle to get it back on. Good luck

Rubber around the washer has come off - there is a thin mental wire but it does not seem to fit well. I have also lost the manual which may have a picture in it.


The thin metal wire should have a loop on either end. Connecting the two loops is a spring, that wire/spring combination holds the rubber seal around the tub opening. Putting the wire back on is a lesson in patience. The rubber fits in a slot on the back and the wire holds it in in the front. Good luck.

Amana NFW7200TW washer - door seal ring has detached


The ring is a clamp that keeps the rubber part, called the bellow, attached to the front panel of the washer. To reinstall hook the edge of the bellow around the lip of the opening in the front panel (the hole through which you put your laundry). Then take the clamp and seat it in the groove of the bellow behind the lip of the front panel. The spring on the clamp should pull the bellow tight to the opening of the panel.

Like so:

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.

Front-Loading Automatic Washer is leaking water


if you have a wire loop in your hands
its more than likely the outside loop, the inside would still be looped on the boot between the door and tub
any way, if it is the outside lock loop it should have a spring connecting both ends
this loop goes around the door seal kinda behind a lip, if you inspect where the boot lips the panal youll see what i mean
the best way to put it back on
catch the top of the loop an the lip of the boot
keeping the rest of the loop as close to in postion as possible use two needle nose pliers to tretch the spring, you should be able to spread it far enough to slip the rest of the loop back into place
four hands are much better here I assure you
but it can be done alone, it just takes a lil paitence
and slow movements
hope this help

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.

KENMORE H3T WASHER GREY TWISTED FRONT SEAL


I am currently replacing this bellow because of holes and five years of wear and tear. The bellow is attached to the front door assembly via a spring loaded clamp. This clamp is a solid large wire ring with loops on each end where the spring attaches. You do not have to remove the spring, just place a screwdriver between the bellow and the ring or spring to remove. This will allow you to take off the bellow from the lip of the front door assembly to reposition. The spring clamp goes on starting first from opposite of the spring and working in both directions a little at a time. ALL DONE.
