LG Wm2487hrma Door boot repair

4 posts in this topic

I made the mistake of thinking I could replace the inner spring without a spring expansion tool. After 2 days of fussing and major blood loss, we were able to get the spring back on--only to find it totally warping the door boot on the right side from what appears to be too much tension, even though it is in the track. What now!?!

I'd also love a link to the repair manual so I can make sure I have it in the correct groove

Also would love the service manual so I can see the diagram and make sure I'm in the correct groove.

You'll definitely need the inner spring tool-- I can't see doing this job without it Part number: AP4439038

I realized my issue--I had tread the tub into the wrong groove. One I fixe that and it was nice and flush, I was able to do the spring with needle nose pliers. Seemed easy after the hell I'd been through with the boot on wrong. Whew

Thanks!
