It takes another set of hands to stretch and hold the spring in place at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions. With the spring held in place in this manner, pull the remaining portion of the spring straight down at the 6 o'clock position with one hand and hold it while working the rest of the spring into the groove with the other hand. This is the toughest part of replacing these door seals, but it works better with two people. Please let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.

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

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:

The rubber seal came off of the inside during the spin cycle - behind door against the tub -- and a wire ring came out. I put the rubber seal back on but have no idea where the wire ring would go? Is this...


The wire ring is the seal retaining spring, it fits in a groove at the rear of the door seal.
Double the seal back in the drum, and fit the spring around the seal at the rear of same, it fits inside a groove, it is difficult, so persist and be patient.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

How to change door seal on hotpoint m w a 60 washing m/c


you need to remove the outer retaining ring which is a wire around the lip of the seal typically joined with a spring., using a small screwdriver.
the inner retainer is held together by a ratchet type assembly. prise one end of the wire by twisting the folded end of the wire out of the groove til it comes free.
replace the seal. fit the inner retainer together using some long nose pliers, prefferably bent-nosed. the outer retainer with a screwdriver.

Not a hard task if you coat rims with liquid detergent before trying to install new seal.
Using thumb go slowly around rim working seal all the way back.
Replacing main spring can be done by working bottom to top and then hold left side of spring in place while you pull right side in with long nose pliers.A couple of minutes difficult work and your 90% done.
Care is required so as not to puncture seal,
Main point is to ensure seal is fully seated before applying spring.
Having machine laid on its back makes the job so much easier.

This job took an hour and 30 minutes, the hour spent checking the internet first.
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.

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.
