    Replaced Outside Rubber Bellows
    Rubber bellows was approximately 8-9 years old with lots and lots of mold on the outside and more inside where water drains out. Removing all the necessary parts to remove and install the replacement bellows was not difficult. The most difficult step was replacing the bellow to outer tube clamp. It is spring loaded and virtually impossible for one person to replace. Holding the bellow in place while trying to stretch the spring clamp is frustrating. I am sure, at the factory they have specialized tools that allows assembly of the clamp instantly. The do-it-yourselfer is in trouble unless a second person is available to help. In order to get the spring clamp installed around the outside of the bellow, it was necessary to undo the spring from the clamp and then place the loose clamp around the bellows. Have one person hold the end of the clamp with pliers while the other person stretches the spring to connect to the loop in the clamp. It took quite a bit of strength and several tries to complete. Other than that, not a difficult job.

    Edge of seal leaking taking out clothes with metal clasps.
    My Kenmore Elite front loading washer is different than the one in the video instructions, in that it has a plastic chrome decorative ring which surrounds the door opening. This chrome ring prevents removal of the top front electrical panel (the panel with all the controls and buttons). You cannot remove the middle door section until the top panel section is removed. So it was necessary to grip the chrome ring at the top and pull it away. Doing this, destroyed a number of plastic tabs that hold it in place. Fortunately, only the top part of this ring needs to be pulled out so that you can then remove the top panel. Complete removal of the ring would have meant having to buy new brackets that hold it in. After the top/front section was removed, the rest of the procedure went easily, using the t video as a guide.

    Leaking seal at the front door of washer.
    Pulled the outer lip of the seal and found the spring with the wire on the outer rim of the door. Carefully remove the spring and wire all together and placed it inside the washer for safe keeping. Once the ring is removed you can pull on the lip and push it into the washer. In the upper right you will find the screw band. Similar to a hose clamp only bigger. You will need a small flathead screw driver. This was the hardest part of the whole operation. It is hard to get the screwdriver aligned and fit your hand in there as well. Make sure you loosen the screw carefully and ensure it is loose enough for the next step. Once I felt it was loose enough, I carefully removed the hose clamp/clasp and let it sit in the opening between the drum and front door. I was then able to remove the bellows from the inner rim of the washer. This completes the removal part. I lined up the new bellows using the washer's input tube on the front left to ensure it would line up when I tighten down the clamp on the inner drum. Once the bellows was in place and the clamp was on, I checked the alignment again before tightening the clamp with the screw driver. With it loose you can make any adjustments if needed. Then I re-tighten the screw and checked to see if it would move at all. Next you need to re-seat the outer seal to the door and double check to ensure it is on all the way around. This next part can be hard and you will need a second pair of hands. There are a couple of ways you can put the retention ring on the door to the washer. I kept the whole ring and spring together and this is where a second pair of hands will be needed. I placed the retention ring at the top and worked it around the lip. If you have ever changed a tire on a bike it is very similar. Once I had it in place as far as I could get it, my wife held the two spots and using a screw driver I was able to gently get the spring to expand and pop the ring in place. I double checked to ensure it was all in place and snug. Then I double checked the lip of the seal and it all looked good. I had my wife run a rinse without any cloths and checked for leaks. No leaks. It has been working fine ever since. The wife tried to fix it herself with crazy glue and it dried out the ring so that it leaked.
