Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
Sometimes it is difficult to get the ring on front load washers; but it is much easier to remove the top, bottom and the front control panel ,then the door and support panel. Now you have the access. However this is a two person job. The spring part of the metal ring goes at the 6:00 position (note the groove on the metal part of the machine). Fit the ring into the gasket as much as you can on the hinge side. While one person uses pliers to stretch the spring, another person uses a flat head screwdriver to move the ring into the gasket groove. The trick is to stretch the spring as straight and close to the machine as you can or else the ring pops off and the gasket has to be reset.
Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
