Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
Easy, tilt machine backwards against the wall to give more working room. Remove Wire clamp around the outside lip of bellow. I use needle nose plyers to grip it. Once you have the outside part peeled back, use a 1/4 socket (I think) to release the large hose clamp that attaches the bellow to the outer basket. Install in reverse order.

SOURCE: Duet washer leaking
If the leak started occurring after the bellow was replaced, and it's on the left hand side of the door, I suspect the bellow is not seated around the fill tube all the way. I have experienced this problem before. Check the fill tube where it comes in by the door. The rubber should be seated back far enough to allow the tube to fill into the tub without obstruction. It could be that the fill tube is forcing water BEHIND the bellow and leaking into the washer and on to the floor. To answer your question, "YES", replacing the bellow could have caused your leak.

did hte rear clamp come off or just the front spring. assuming its just front spring.carefully reinstall the boot over the front lip assy . easy enough!!here comes the fun!! the spring itself goes to the bottom of the rim.So hang the wire over the top of bellow and feed into the lip evenly as you go down both sides as soon as you get your hands to the 9oclock and 3 oclock positon I then change grip on the spring (use the tips of my fingers palms facing front assy and strech whole pushing down and in. I used to find small spring style clamps would work great for holding the wire in place till it would "pop" into place. a third hand is also very useful to hold in place .

you must remove the large front panel. if you can manage that the rest will become clear to you. dont forget to unscrew the door lock before befor removing the front panel. you will find three screws at the bottom of the front panel under the kick panel, remove them and the front panel will come off.
