Why am I getting grease on my cloths when they are washed in the washer.
This may not be grease but a build up of fabric softner. You will want to do a clean cycle on the unit and use affresh W10135699 or washer magic TJ131 to clean. You can also use a white towel to wipe around the inner tub to see if you are getting any residue.
Do I need clamps to hold this part in place?
Answer Hello A.B! Yes, the front bellow tub seal 8182119 is held on by clamps. The rear clamp is part number 8182210 and the front clamp is part number 8182211. Thanks!
How do you change the door boot on a frigidaire washer.
Answer Hello Tom,
To replace the door boot you will have to remove the top, control panel, and the front panel of unit. We would need a model number to be able to assist with this. If you could also supply email we may be able to provide information. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
I purchased a bellow replacement from your site and twice now the rear inner seal has slipped out from the hose clamp. I tightened it the 2nd time very tight and it still slipped off the machine and flooded my garage. Is there something I am not doing? How do I remedy this issue?
Answer Hello Chris. You are not getting it seated properly when you are installing the clamp. You need to make sure the clamp is on the lip of the tub and the bellow is sandwiched between the 2 parts. These are not easy to install. Once the clamp is on, pull outward and rock the tub back and forth with the bellow and look for it to come off. If it does not, it is installed properly.
On the bellows tub seal on my washing machine, there is a chain hanging down. It's broken just from one side. What do I do about this chain. I can't get it put back.
Answer Hello Wanda,
The device used to hold the door boot on is a clamp. There is no chain in the machine that I have ever seen. This has to have been in a pocket or somehow found its' way into the wash.
Is Part# AP3597347 the correct Front Bellow Tub Seal for my washer? Are other parts required for replacement? Also do you have instructions on how to replace?
Answer Hello Carl! Yes, the front bellow 8182119 is the correct gasket used on your model MFW9700SQ0. No other parts are required unless broken on your unit now. If needed, the front clamp is part number 8182211 and the rear clamp is part number 8182210. Here are the instructions from the manufacturer, hope it helps. Thanks! 1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Turn off the water supply to the washer. 3. Remove the top cover and the console. 4. Remove the lower front access panel. 5. Open the washer door. 6. Using a small screwdriver or a pair of long-nosed pliers, pull the tension spring on the retaining wire out from around the front of the bellows, and remove the wire. 8. To remove the bellows: a) Remove the two T-20 Torx screws from the door switch assembly. b) Remove the front panel from the washer. c) Turn the bellows retaining clamp screw counterclockwise until the clamp is loose enough to remove it from around the bellows. NOTE: It may be necessary to completely remove the screw from one end of the clamp. d) Remove the bellows retaining clamp from around the bellows 8182119. e) Pull the bellows off the front of the tub. REASSEMBLY NOTE: When you reinstall the bellows, be sure to position the “weep holes”at the bottom, and align the top arrow mark at 12:00 first.
