7 Install the spring clamp on the new bellow seal into the groove using a Phillips screwdriver. Plug the black and white hoses into the holes at the top of the bellow. Be careful not to damage the bellow seal. Place the front of the machine on the frame and install the top screws using a nut driver.

How to install spring clamp on outer portion of


If you are referring to the small wire hoop with the small spring, follow these steps:

1. Make sure the bellow is installed correctly all the way around the opening of the door frame.

2. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop in the rubber groove of the bellow. Make sure the wire spring points towards the 6 o'clock position (bottom).

3. As you work your way around the door to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions with your hands, maintain some constant downward pressure to hold the bellow in the rubber groove.

4. Pull the spring apart to stretch the wire hoop open and snap it back into place.

NOTE: Using a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place, makes the process much easier.

If you still have problems, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

HOW TO INSTALL WHIRLPOOL DUET WASHER CLAMP (FRONT


Follow these steps:

1. Install the door bellow back over the frame of the door opening ensuring it fits snugly all the way around the perimeter of the opening.

2. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the rubber fold of the bellow. Make sure the wire spring points towards the 6 o'clock position.

3. While maintaining some constant downward pressure, work your way around the door to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions.

4. Pull the spring apart in order to snap it back into place.

NOTE: It may be advisable to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this if it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If you are experiencing problems with the bellow clamp coming loose, this is commonly caused by items getting caught in the bellow during the wash cycle. Over-stuffing the washer can contribute to this, which can also cause premature wear on the bellow.

The Rubber seal came out and a metal ring came out with it. I got the rubber seal back in,but the I'm not sure about the metal ring. It looks like it's got a little spring thing on the bottom of it.


The rubber seal you are referring to is called the bellow. It seals the front of the wash tub to the door frame. The wire hoop is the front bellow clamp. If the bellow is not damaged, you can reinsert the clamp by following these steps:

1. Install the bellow back over the frame of the door opening ensure you fit it snugly all the way around the opening.

2. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove that is in the rubber fold of the bellow behind the door opening.

3. Make sure to wire spring points towards the 6 o'clock position and begin inserting the wire hoop into the bellow groove.

4. 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 you inspect the bellow and it is ripped or torn, you will need to replace it or the washer will leak. The following link explains how:

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions.

NOTE: There is another method you may try as well. Although I do not prefer this next method because these washing machines are very heavy, an alternative way of replacing the door bellow is to remove the lower toe panel and tilt the washer back at a 45 degree angle instead of removing the washer front panel. If you use this method, make sure it rests against the wall and will not tip forward. This allows the wash tub to drop down and away from the front panel and gives you access to the the rear bellow clamp through the bottom. This can save you some time. Thanks to user DGBG for the helpful tip.

If you would like some helpful exploded view diagrams of your washer that you can reference, you can use any of these web sites:

appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com

Just use your model number to begin your search criteria.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: These door seals do wear out and require replacement from time to time. However, overloading the washer to the point where items get caught in the door area can contribute to premature wear and tear.

Rubber boot and spring need put back in


The rubber boot presses on the rim, and the spring clamp fits in the groove behind it. Don't overtighten.

I have a Kenmore elite front load washer. The


The rubber liner (called a "bellow") can be purchased for less than $100. If you wish to install yourself, the following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385210-replacing_door_bellow_kenmore_elite

If the bellow isn't damaged, you can still use the link provided to simply re-install it. If the outer bellow clamp (wire hoop with a spring) is damaged it can also be purchased for about $20 or less. Searspartsdirect.com or appliancepartspros.com offer the best prices with exploded view diagrams of your washer. Just use your model number (located along the door opening) for your search criteria.

So, the choice is yours. Spend about $100 (if required) and repair this yourself. Or, spend $$$ for a new washer. I own a model like yours and I know it wasn't cheap. If the only think wrong with the washer is the door bellow, I think this just may be worth the time and effort to repair.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Kenmore washer need to put rubber gasket retaining spring back on. Any tricks, seems impossible. Peter


I assume that you're talking about the inner spring. It's very tight, so you have to get the rubber gasket (bellows) fitted on the its frame, then push the bellows inside out in toward the tub. Start with placing the spring in its groove at 12 o'clock. Wedge something between the bellows and the white colored weight ring of the tub. You'll need something approx 3/4" in diameter to wedge the top of the spring in place. (I've used a 1/2"X90 degree copper elbow I had laying around that had an approx outside diameter of 3/4"). This will hold the spring in place as you work it around. It is still very difficult and you may have to stretch the spring ever so slightly to get it back into the groove. Once the spring is back on, remove the wedge, fold the bellows back out and attach the fill hose and attach bellows back to front panel.

Kenmore door to tub spring has come off


If you are talking about the inner spring that holds the door bellow to the tub, it's going to require two hands to get the spring to go back in the groove. You will need to carefully remove the bellow from the front opening of the door, first. On the 417 models, such as yours, the bellow is usually glued in place aorund the door frame and held in place by a spring to the tub. Use a putty knife to carefully peel the rubber form the washer facing. Once completed, you can glue it back in place with some appliance adhesive. To get the spring back in the groove on the tub facing, you will need to start at the top and have someone hold it on place as you work your way around the the tub. It's a real bear to get back in at times. Let me know if this helps you. Please post back if you have questions.

LG Washer gasket installation


You have to take off the front panel first. Un;lug unit, start with the lid, 2 screws at the back and push back.
Next uplug front console and remove (couple screws and snaps make sure you get the screws out of the dispenser)
Remove screws along top and down at the bottom where the drain is.
Oh the door lock too, you can unplug it or unscrew it, your choice.
remove the top weight to make it easy.
Put gasket on, then use a small vise grip and a long nose pliers to get the spring on.
Replace weight, panel etc.
No but the gasket on the front and then start at the bottom with the spring.
Work it all around and then use the smalll vise grip to open the spring. If you have an extra pair of hands that would help you.
There is a spring tool for it but it is in my tool box, sorry, but I hope this helps.
Be careful with the inside spring and wear safety glasses just to be safe.
Good luck
