Whirlpool WFW8300SW04 - Door seal leaks

6 posts in this topic

What is the correct way to replace the rubber door boot (bellows) on this machine. Do I need any other

parts besides the W10111435?

our man Strathy has a video somewhere on here of him showing how to do this from the front...no disassembley required. maybe you could p/m him for it.

no part needed except the bellows...

Nice work Strath! You can tell he's a Pro, fast and efficient.

I have been using a 1/4" drive thumbwheel ratchet, but I'm going to try the flex shaft method. If you heat the boot in the dryer for 5 min you will remove the wrinkles caused by the boot being balled up in the box. I use liquid soap on the tub lip and boot groove to make it easier to fit.

Thanks for the tips: using liquid soap and heating the boot up a bit!
