Take the front spring off that secures the front of the bellow to the front panel. (now the bellow should be fully unattached.

Next there is a metal clamp that holds the bellow to the tub it should have a 5/16 hex head (unsure of exact size) where when this hex head is turned clockwise it will tighten the clamp. Working through the door opening you what insure the bellow is positioned correctly and that the screw should be at about the 2 O'Clock position. Tighten very snugly, then reattach the front of the bellow back to the front panel.

Test for leaks... And make sure you are checking on it during your first couple of loads to insure that it doesn't come loose again.

P.S. you may also want to talk the lower kick panel off or look between the front panel and tub to ensure that no clothes fell into the washer when the bellow came loose.

Best of luck.

Why is door locked and won't open?


Hello. The door lock switch part number is 34001011 in case yours is defective. Usually, just unplug the unit, wait a few minutes, then plug it back in. The main board will unlock the door. On a front load washer, the easiest way to replace a defective door switch is by removing the spring clamp that holds the bellow onto the front of the unit, pulling the bellow aside nearest the lock and swapping it out. HOWEVER, putting that clamp *back on* can be a real headache--I'm able to replace the clamp by hand on the clamps with the smallest springs. The larger ones will require a threaded clamp spreader tool, available at better(larger) appliance parts dealers. If you are hesitant about attempting this, definitely call for service--if the bellow is re-attached incorrectly, it will leak or can be torn because of wrong positioning which can result in it rubbing against the spinning basket. I hope I helped you!

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:

I goofed up the front tube seal bellow with an oversized comforter.Its not ripped but is not seating correctlycan it be realigned or do i need to replace?


As long as there on rips, tears or holes, you can realign it by removing the wire hoop clamp that affixes the bellow to the door frame opening. With the clamp removed, pull the bellow free of the door frame, realign and reattach. To get the wire hoop front bellow clamp back in place, follow step 12 in the link below:

Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If the bellow leaks after you reattach it, you may have to inspect the rear bellow clamp and retighten. This is the clamp that affixes the bellow to the wash tub front.

I have Kenmore Elite HE3 Front Load Model 110.5862400. The rubber gasket/bellow got wadded up with clothes and popped out along with the clamp. How do I put back together. There is no damage but I don't...


The following link explains the steps required to install a door bellow on a front loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load

Inspect the bellow and the front and rear clamps to ensure they are not damaged. If the bellow has any rips or tears, it must be replaced or it will leak.

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

NOTE: Overloading the washer can contribute to items getting caught in the bellow and causing premature wear. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for proper loading.

How to change bellows on Kenmore front loading washer


First remove the bottom kick plate at bottom. Then tear off the front of the bellows from around the door. Inside there is a big hose clamp holding the inside if it. Remove completely.
Now,put the inside on first, Tightening the inside clamp. Easy so far, right?
My trick to the outer spring:put a little liquid detergent or soap on out bellow where spring attaches,start at top and work it down and around, use needlenose pliers to help with hard part. Good Luck.

If it's stackable, you'll want to start by removing the dryer.
Open the door and remove the outer bellow spring around the bellow to release it from the cabinet lip. At this point lean the machine back to give more space between the drum and the cabinet.
Remove the kickplate for easier access and to visually check for leaks later.
At the top/right of the bellows (close to the tub) loosen the bellow to tub clamp and pull out the bellow.
Install the new bellow starting at the top by aligning the marks. Work your way around until bellows is properly seated snug against the tub.
Replace the tub to bellow clamp and tighten it (make sure the bellow stays snug against the tub while tightening the clamp). Once in place, lay the machine back to level and reinstall the front of the bellows to the cabinet with the outer bellow spring clamp.
With towels handy (just in case), let the machine fill and agitate for a few minutes and check for water leaks. If all is well, re-install the kickplate and wash some laundry.
Good luck!

How to replace the door bellows seal ?


Unfortunately the service manual will not tell you how to replace the bellows.

Tilt the machine back to create more space between the front on the door and the outer drum. Remove the screws for the kickplate and remove the kickplate for easier access. Open the door and remove the spring clamp holding the bellows to the door opening lip. Push the bellows into the drum to get access to the outside/ rear of the bellows (where it connects to the drum). There you will find another clamp which you loosen/ remove with a socket. Some models have an overfill tube on the top of the bellows (remove it from the bellows). At this point you should be able to completely remove the bellows.

Align the new bellows to the outer tub. Attach and tighten the inner clamp (be careful not to over tighten and periodically check the bellows and clamp placement as you're tightening to make sure it doesn't slip off). Attach the overfill tube (if equipped). Lay the machine back to level and install the front of the bellows to the door opening lip. Re-install the spring clamp by starting at the top and working your way down both sides (may be easier with 2 pairs of hands). Be careful not to overstretch the spring on the clamp.

Test with a quick fill and let it agitate for a few minutes to ensure there are no leaks (be ready to hit cancel and have a few towels just in case it leaks). Re-install the kickplate, make sure machine is still leveled correctly by trying to rock it diagonally from the top. Enjoy clean clothes!
