REMOVING 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)

I will hold on if you have questions.
