Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
Once you have your replacement boot (or seal) (availible at local appliance parts stores or from the manufactures web site on line), You can follow these steps:
1 - Remove the front clamp. (a silver peice of wire with a spring at the botom) A small flat head screwdriver will let you pull it off.
2 - You will have a green clamp on a black hose that comes from the dispenser to the top of the boot (seal) on some models that you will have to disconnect.
3 - The main water inlet (about the 9 o'clock position can just be pulled off (or worked back on durring re-instalation)
4 - Remove the second clamp on the back side of the boot (it's a flat piece of metal that has a screw on it at about the 3 oclock position. Turn it counter-clockwise to loosen. (clockwise for installing the new boot)
5 - Pull the old boot free.
6 - Reverse the procedure making sure to line the new boot up at the top. (there is a arrow that shows where to align the tub (white piece of plastic) and the boot. There is lip on the back of the boot that will seat all of the way around it.
7 - When putting the front clamp back on (the wire and spring combo) there is also a lip to seat around the front as well. When putting on the clamp, use a small flat head screwdriver inserted into one of the holes next to the spring. Then using a pair of needle nose pliers or another screw driver, work the way around the edge re-seating the clamp over the lip.
Taking the lower front panel off can give you a bit more room to work. You can take it off by removing the screws at it's bottom. Also you should run a test cycle where you can easily see if there are any leaks after you are done to prevent water dammage.
