The first thing you will do is open door .you have a small flap on the very outmost part of the bellows with a flat bladed screw driver and your thumb flip this flap inward toward inside of bellows.

You will see a small wire ,with your screw driver get under the wire and unhook it from around bellows at the bottom (6 oclock ) position you will have a small spring attached to this wire once this is done

Push bellows inside washer , you will now find a LARGE hose clamp 5/16 nut, the screw for clamp should be at approx the (1 oclock ) position , just unscrew it and then pull bellows off.

NOTE when replacing bellows do not over tighten that LARGE hose clamp ,

then just reverse for replacing bellows and spring (remember sping at (6oclock)

Can't get new bellows to stay on ring how do you take off front panel and panel control and panel cover.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 7 years ago.

You are not able to get front off you cabinet is a three sided cabinet.

Once in a while we have to put a bead of silicone adhesive on the lip that holds the bellows. let it set for several hours before installing clamp .

And again do not over tighten clamp it will pull bellows off JUST HAND TIGHTEN
