LG Washer Repair – Replacing the Door Boot Seal

Be sure you’ve unplugged the appliance before beginning.  Your first step is to use a flat head screw driver or spring expansion tool to help remove the clamp from the door boots seal.  Peel the boot seal off the lip of the front panel and move it out of the way. Now depress the tab to release the wire connector from the door latch.

Next open the pump filter cover and unclip the drainage tube.  Remove the filter housing mounting screw and pull out the housing with the housing out.  Remove the lower front panel mounting screw, remove the screws at the rear of the main top.  Now slide the main top back approximately one inch then lift up to remove.

Next, pull out the dispenser drawer.  Depress the locking tab and remove the drawer from the control panel.  Remove the front control panel mounting screws and the rear control panel mounting screw.  Now moving left to right detach the control panel mounting tabs and move the panel out of the way.

Next remove the upper front panel mounting screws and lift the front panel up and out.  Use pliers to loosen the clamps on the steam and circulation hoses and pull the hoses off of the seal ports.  Loosen the clamp securing the boot seal’s drain port to the drain tube and pull it off use a flat head screw driver or the spring expansion tool to remove the tub boot clamp.  Now peel the old boot seal off of the outer tub and prepare the new door boot seal for installation by transferring the steam and circulation nozzle from the old seal to the new one, then apply liquid dish soap to lubricate the seal’s groove with the indicator on the seal pointing upward.

Push the boot seals grooved edge over the lip of the top and work your way around the entire tub opening secure the seal with the tub boot clamp.  Using the spring expansion tool will make this step easier.  Connect the stem and circulation hoses to the seal and secure the clamps reuse the old clamp to secure the new seal’s drain port to the drain tube.

Reinstall the front panel by aligning the tabs in the cabinet base with the slots in the panel.  Now secure the front panel mounting screws, reposition the control panel and snap it into place and reinstall the mounting screws in the front and in the back replace the dispenser drawer.

Align the main top and slide it forward into place.  Secure the screws at the rear and replace the lower front panel mounting screw.  Reinsert the pump filter housing and secure the screw.  Clip the drainage tube into the housing and close the cover. Snap the door latch wire connector into place and realign the door boot seal on the lip of the front panel.  Reinsert the boot clamp into the seal’s outer groove with the spring at the bottom.  Again the use of the spring expansion tool will make this easier.

You’re now ready to plug the appliance back in to make sure it’s functioning properly, and rejoice in the completion of your LG washing machine repair.
