Not sure how long the tool is. You do have to point the long end the opposite way the door swings. The thumb wheel is very easy to rotate.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

Thanks to all who responded to my inquiry on the use of the LG springs tools, especially "sh2sh2" who confirmed the proper use of the "bent pronged" spring tool.

 

As well as replacing the boot seal on my son-in-laws LG washer, I had to replace the boot seal (torn) on my Maytag Neptune washer. I was hoping the LG tools might be usable on the Maytag to stretch its one spring, but no such luck. I used a couple of small vise grip tools on the Maytag and they worked okay, it's just that the spring expanding tools make it less cumbersome to work with the springs. Since it's not an everyday job, it's no big deal.

 

Again, thanks to all,

twodotmike
