Question about LG Washing Machines
THE DOOR SEAL IS BROKEN, I CAN GET THE FIRST METAL SPRING LOADED SEAL RING HOLDER OFF BUT THE PLASTIC RING TO HOLD THE SEAL IN PLACE BEHIND IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET OUT
HOW DO I REPLACE THE SEAL?
WHERE CAN I GET THE SEAL?
I LIVE IN FRANCE BUT PURCHASED THE MACHINE IN SOUTH AFRICA 4 YEARS AGO SO I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO GET SPARES HERE
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 .

Found it impossible. After 30min I tried the washing up liquid trick and I got the rubber seal on in 1 min. Getting the spring on was another story, but managed in the end.

The following link explains step-by-step how to install a door bellow on a Whirlpool Duet:
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:
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.

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.
