I'm assuming you want to install the clamp that holds the boot to the front of the tub.
Remove the spring/wire clamp that hold the boot to the front panel, and gently pull the boot free from the front panel. Push the boot in to the tub opening to give you some room. Now fix your clamp problem, and put it back together. Do not over tighten the clamp, it breaks easily..
You can replace the boot on these without taking any panels off. 10-15 minutes once you get good at it.

1) use only HE type detergent.
2) run the machine empty on hot wash with bleach and Cascade dishwasher detergent.
3) leave the door open when not in use.

If you use HE detergent, and only HE detergent, I would do the clean routine once every 2 months. If you have pets or use liquid fabric softener, you may want to do it more often. I use 2 cups cascade and 2 cups bleach.
I would always leave the door open. Also, I would use dryer sheets, liquid softener will leave deposits inside the machine.

as stated from the other replies... leaving door open, running the unit with bleach and dishwasger detergent, HE soaps....... the one that really sticks out is the last one that said about liquid soaps.
they claim that some liquid soaps use animal products as thickening agents or builder and the residue promotes bacterial growth and therefore bad odours. like i said in the beginning i dont know if they can back up that claim but i havent heard any other manufacturer advising against liquid soaps
