installation of front bellows spring
« on: June 06, 2011, 03:41:25 PM »
Can I get any tips or trick for reinstalling the front gasket/ bellows? I'm trying to reinstall the spring that goes around it but wanted to see if there were any tricks before I get too pissed off. I got this one free today cause something was lodged in between the inner and outer tub. Lady said the tech said it would take 4 hours to work on it. I took it apart and found some silky panties lodged up near the dispenser opening. Now I'm ready to reassemble.

Model LTF2140FS1

Did you remove the front of the washer to reinstall the door bellows?

Success! It's alive! Yes I removed the front when I dissasembled it. I had to lay it on it's back and remove the black casing with concrete in it. I then released the gasket from the front door. Had to release the other spring. So the bellows was completely loose and not attached to anything so I could attach the inside first. My 12 year old daughter assisted me in stretching the big spring out. Works great!

Yes, that is very similar but mine had a few more wire to disconnect and had the removable bottom kick panel. Plus mine was hard to get apart. This video did help alot though. Wish I had it earlier. :) I have 3 other older model ones sitting around I might tackle soon now. I attached a pic of mine. It's a 2008 model. Thanks for the link and the help!

Awesome free washer, even better that all you had to stick into it was some labor, nice!

Easy money...  8)  O0
