How to replace bellow on front load whirlpool washing machine?
Answer Hello. You will need to remove the top panel, then remove the control panel. Open the door and remove the boot spring and boot from the front panel, and remove the front panel. Once the front panel is removed, you will see a band around the back of the bellow. Remove this band, and reinstall in reverse order. Hope this helps.

I need to replace the boot seal on my washer. What else do I need to get. A clamp? or use the one from that is on there now?
Answer Lori, the door boot seal listed for your model is part number W10111435. You should be able to use the existing clamps on your unit now. However, if they are needed you'll need part numbers W10217563 for the front panel clamp and 8540108 for the tub clamp. Thanks!
The machine works fine until it gets to the spin cycle. It's making noise but its not spinning. What do you think is causing the problem?
Answer Hello Yvonne,
You need to run the diagnostic test as described I the tech sheet. This will pull the fault codes stored in the control. This is the best way to get to the bottom of the issue without spending a mint on replacement parts that are not needed.
How do you check washer if its over filling?
Answer Judy, it will either be the pressure switch or the inlet valve. If you start the washer, let the unit start filling, and remove power and the washer continues to fill you have a bad water valve. If it stops filling you have a bad pressure switch or kinked/clogged pressure switch hose. We'll need your model number to determine the correct part numbers. Thanks.
