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.

Then pull the rest of the boot farward and push the lip of the boot under the lip of the front panel ,once it is on pull the front lip up so you will be able to put the wire clamp on under that lip and remember the spring on the wire clamp goes to the (6oclock) position (bottom) once the wire clamp is in place your have
