SAFE SERVICING PRACTICES - ALL APPLIANCES
To avoid personal injury and/or property damage, it is important that Safe Servicing
Practices be observed. The following are some limited examples of safe practices:
1. DO NOT attempt a product repair if you have any doubts as to your ability to
complete it in a safe and satisfactory manner.
2. Before servicing or moving an appliance:
• Remove the power cord from the electrical outlet, trip the circuit breaker to the
OFF position, or remove the fuse.
• Turn off the gas supply.
• Turn off the water supply.
3. Never interfere with the proper operation of any safety device.
4. USE ONLY REPLACEMENT PARTS CATALOGED FOR THIS APPLIANCE.
SUBSTITUTIONS MAY DEFEAT COMPLIANCE WITH SAFETY
STANDARDS SET FOR HOME APPLIANCES.
5. GROUNDING: The standard color coding for safety ground wires is GREEN,
or GREEN with YELLOW STRIPES. Ground leads are not to be used as current
carrying conductors. It is EXTREMELY important that the service technician
reestablish all safety grounds prior to completion of service. Failure to do so will
create a hazard.
6. Prior to returning the product to service, ensure that:
• All electrical connections are correct and secure
• All electrical leads are properly dressed and secured away from sharp
edges, high-temperature components, and moving parts
• All non-insulated electrical terminals, connectors, heaters, etc. are
adequately spaced away from all metal parts and panels
• All safety grounds (both internal and external) are correctly and securely
connected
• All panels are properly and securely reassembled

QUICK REFERENCE SHEET
open, the wires between the control
board and the drain pump are defective. If the meter reads around 15 Ohms,
the control board should be replaced.
Fault Codes:
Display shows: F 01
Indicates:
An internal fault in the control.
Correction:
Touch the Stop/Clear pad. If the display continues to display F1 or if the
code returns when the washer is restated, replace the control.
If the drum does not have water in it,
start the washer in the Normal Cycle
and select Warm Wash. If the washer
does not fill, make sure the faucets are
turned on, unplug one of plugs from the
water valve and measure the voltage
drop across the terminals in the plug.
If the meter reads 120VAC, the water
valve is defective. If the meter reads
zero, measure for voltage from each terminal in the plug to neutral. If the meter
reads zero from each terminal, the pressure switch or the wiring to the pressure switch is defective. If the meter
reads 120VAC from one terminal, the
control board or the wiring from the valve
to the control board is defective.
Display shows: F 02
Indicates:
A water temperature problem.
Correction:
First check to see if the incoming water hoses are connected properly. If so,
disconnect both wires from the water
temperature sensor and measure the
resistance of the sensor. If the reading
is less than 3K or more than 163K, replace the sensor. If the reading is between 3K and 163K, reconnect the wires
to the sensor and unplug the small four
pin plug from the control board. Measure the resistance between pins 3 and
4 in the plug. If the reading is the same
as the sensor reading, replace the control board. If the meter reading is not
the same as that at the sensor, the wiring between the control board and sensor is defective.
If the washer is over filling, check the
pressure switch or the tube to the pressure switch.
Display shows: F 04
Indicates:
The washer is not advancing through it
increments.
Correction:
Touch Stop/Clear to clear the F 04. Select and start the washer in the Heavy
Duty wash cycle with the Heavy Soil/
Stain Option deactivated. If the tub
does not start turning while filling or
within 30 seconds after the fill is completed, troubleshoot for a motor will not
run problem. If the motor is running and
the tub is filled, let the washer run for at
least 6 minutes. Measure the voltage
between pin one of the 8 pin connector
(J11) and pin 7 of the 7 pin connector
(J6). The voltage should be below 50
VAC when the timer advances is off and
line voltage when the timer advance is
on. If the meter reading does not switch
between these two reading, the motor
speed control is defective. If the meter
reading switches between these two
reading, the electronic control board is
defective.
Display shows: F 03
Indicates:
Water level problem caused by either
no incoming water or the drain pump
not working.
Correction:
Touch the Stop/Clear pad to clear the
F 03. Check the drum for water. If the
drum has a normal fill of water, touch
the Drain/Spin pad and press the start
pad. If the water does not pump out,
remove the front access panel and measure the voltage drop across terminals
of the drain pump. If the meter reads
120 VAC, the drain pump is defective
or the drain hose is plugged. If the
meter reads zero, disconnect power,
remove the large four pin plug (JX) and
the eight pin plug(J11) from the back of
the control. Measure the resistance between pin 3 in the four pin plug and pin
3 of the eight pin plug. If the meter reads
7
Display shows: F 05
Indicates:
A problem with the key pad.
QUICK REFERENCE SHEET
Correction:
Disconnect the keypad ribbon from the
control and reconnect the ribbon. Try
all keypad switches to see they all function correctly. If they do not, then try
clean the end of the ribbon with a soft
cotton cloth. Reinstall the ribbon and
program the washer to operate. If the
code reoccurs, replace the touch pad.
Note:
See control removal instructions on
how to disconnect ribbon.
Code:
ddo
Indicates:
Drawer reed switch is not closed.
Correction:
Make sure the drawer is closed. If the
drawer is closed, check that the magnet in the drawer is in the correct position. If the magnet is in the correct position, check the reed switch.
Code:
dr
Indicates:
Door switch is not closed.
Correction:
Check that the door is closed and the
door catch is not broken. If so, replace
the door lock assembly.

dark and noncolorfast items.
•
Separate items which shed lint from items
which attract lint. Permanent press, synthetic,
knit and corduroy items will pick up lint from
towels, rugs and chenille bedspreads.
•
Separate heavily soiled items from lightly soiled
items.
26
•
Place delicate items such as bras, shoulder
pads, hosiery, and belts in a mesh bag to
prevent tangling during the wash cycle.
•
Turn knit items inside out to prevent pilling.
• After adding laundry products, slowly close the
dispenser drawer. Closing the drawer too quickly
could result in early dispensing of the bleach and
fabric softener.
3. Pretreat stains and heavy soil.
See Stain Removal.
4. Add laundry load to washer.
•
Combine large and small items in a load. Load
large items first. Large items should not be more
than half the total wash load.
• Laundry products used with powder or liquid
detergent, such as color-safe bleach, water
conditioner, detergent booster, and enzyme
products should be added to the empty tub before
loading.
Note: From time to time you may see water in the bleach
and fabric softener compartments. This is a result of the
siphoning action and is part of the normal operation of the
washer.
•
Washing single items such as a sweater, towel
or jeans may cause an out-of-balance load. Add
1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
•
Single heavy items such as a bedspread can be
washed separately.
•
The washer can be fully loaded, but the items
should not be tightly packed. The door should
close easily.
5. Add detergent, bleach and fabric
softener to automatic dispenser
following these steps:
LIQUID BLEACH
• If desired, measure out the recommended amount
of liquid chlorine bleach (not to exceed 1/3 cup (80
mL)) and pour it into the center compartment
labeled "Liquid Bleach" and marked with this
symbol
.
OPENING AND CLOSING THE DISPENSER DRAWER
• Do not exceed the maximum fill line. Overfilling can
cause early dispensing of the bleach which could
result in damaged clothes.
• Slowly open the dispenser drawer by first sliding
the safety latch to the right, then pulling the drawer
out until it stops.
• Do not pour undiluted liquid chlorine bleach directly
onto the load or into the drum. Fabric damage can
occur.
27
• Do not use powdered bleach in the dispenser.
• Do not pour fabric softener directly on the
wash load.
• Use of a fabric softener dispensing ball is not
recommended in tumble action washers.
DETERGENT
• Add measured detergent to the detergent
compartment of the dispenser drawer.
• Detergent is flushed from the dispenser at the
beginning of the cycle. Either powdered or liquid
detergent can be used. Note: Liquid detergent will
drain into the washer drum as it is added.
• Low sudsing detergent is recommended for this
washer. Use the manufacturer's recommended
amount.
6. Select the cycle, temperature and speed settings
options and features according to type, size, and
soil level of each load.
(See Operating Instructions for your specific model.)
7. Start the washer.
Close the washer door and press START. The washer
will fill and tumble.
• If low sudsing detergent is not available, a reduced
amount of regular detergent may be used. Because
reducing the amount of detergent may reduce
cleaning, it is important to pretreat stains, sort
carefully by color and soil level, and avoid
overloading.
• Detergent usage may need to be adjusted for water
temperature, water hardness, size and soil level of
the load.
• For best results, avoid oversudsing.
FABRIC SOFTENER
• If desired, pour the recommended amount of fabric
softener into the compartment labeled "Fabric
Softener" and marked with this symbol.
• Dilute concentrated softeners with warm water to
the Fill Line.
• Do not exceed the maximum fill line. Overfilling can
cause early dispensing of the fabric softener which
could result in stained clothes.
• For your safety, the door will automatically lock during
the entire wash cycle and “DOOR LOCK” will be
displayed.
• To change selections after the cycle has started, press
STOP/CLEAR twice. Make changes and restart the
washer.
• To interrupt the cycle, press STOP/CLEAR once to
pause the washer. “PAU” will be displayed. If the load
was tumbling when the cycle was interrupted, the door

Stain Removal
• To restart the washer, press START again. (However,
the washer will automatically restart after 5 minutes.
• To stop the washer, press STOP/CLEAR twice. Two
dashes will be displayed for approximately thirty
seconds.
Do not use or mix liquid chlorine
bleach with other household chemicals such as
toilet cleaners, rust removers, acid or products
containing ammonia. These mixtures can produce
dangerous fumes which can cause serious injury or
death.
8. Remove items when the cycle is
completed.
Place washed items in automatic dryer, line dry, or
dry flat as directed by fabric care label. Excess
wrinkling, color transfer or odors may develop in
items left in the washer after the cycle has ended.
9. General Precautions
Safe Stain Removal Procedures
• If the dispenser drawer is opened during
operation, the washer will shut off and the
door will unlock. “d:do” (dispenser door) will be
displayed. Slowly close the dispenser drawer,
and press START tocontinue cycle.
• Do not slam the washer door closed or try to
force the door open when locked (Door Lock
light ON). This could result in damage to the
washer.
• DO NOT leave the washer door open. An open

crawl inside the washer.
To reduce the risk of fire or serious
injury to persons or property, comply with the basic
warnings listed below:
• Read and comply with all instructions on stain
removal products.
• Keep stain removal products in their original labeled
containers and out of children's reach.
• Thoroughly wash any utensil used.
• Do not combine stain removal products, especially
ammonia and chlorine bleach. Dangerous fumes
may result.
• Never wash items which have been previously
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with
gasoline, dry cleaning solvents or other flammable
or explosive substances because they give off
vapors that could ignite or explode.
• Never use highly flammable solvents, such as
gasoline, inside the home. Vapors can explode on

SECTION D - OPERATION
Dispenser Drawer Reed Switch
Membrane
The dispenser drawer reed switch is a safety switch that
prevents the washer from operating when the dispenser
drawer is open. The switch is located behind the control
panel next to the dispenser drawer. The electronic control
board send a signal through the reed switch circuit. When
the signal is interrupted by the contacts of the reed switch
being open the board prevents the washer from operating.
The membrane is glued to the front of the console and
contains switches which allow the user to program the
control.
Control and Display
The control and display are mounted to the back of the
console. The control:
1. Makes the neutral connections for the water valves,
dispenser solenoids and the door lock solenoid.
2. Provides power to the wax motor, drain pump, and
speed control board.
Reed sw.
3. Sends signals to the speed control board to tell it
what programto run.
4. Checks the status of the reed switch, door switch
and the sensor.
It’s contacts are controlled by the magnetic field of the
magnet located in the front panel of the dispenser drawer.
Magnet
The display provides visual information, such as the time
remaining in the cycle, door lock and delay start along
with what part of the cycle the washer is in wash, rinse
or final spin.
When the drawer is closed the magnet causes the
contacts of the reed switch to close completing a circuit
in the control board
Door Switch Assembly
The door switch assembly, located behind the front panel,
is a safety feature that prevents the washer from operating
when the door is open and locks the door in the spin
cycle. The door lock assembly is made up of a coil, door

switch, switch actuator, locking fork, wax motor, and
spin lock arm.

Power is applied to one side of the coil whenever power
is applied to the washer. When a cycle is selected and
the start pad is touched the control board connects the
other side of the coil to neutral. The magnet field of the
coil pulls the locking fork down and tries to pull the
contacts of the door lock switch closed. If the washer
door is open a tab on the switch actuator prevents the
contacts from closing, (dr) will flash in the display and
the locking fork will not allow the door to be closed until
the stop pad is touched removing current from the coil.
When the washer door is closed the door strike pivots
the switch actuator out of the way allowing the magnetic
field of the coil to close the contacts of the door lock
switch and the locking fork locks the door. The wax
motor and spin lock arm are used to prevent the door
from being opened while the spin basket is still spinning.
The wax motor is electrically in parallel with the drain
pump. Power is applied to the wax motor when the
washer is in spin. When power is applied to the wax
motor it expands its piston within 30 to 40 seconds driving
the spin lock arm between the locking fork and the switch
actuator holding the locking fork down. When power is
removed from the wax motor it takes about 90 seconds
for the wax motor to cool down and retract the piston,
pulling the spin lock arm back away from the locking
fork. This provides enough time for the spin basket to
slow its rotation down to the wash speed before the door
could possibly be opened.
The pressure switch is made up of a single pole double
throw switch, but only contacts 1 and 2 are used, that is
controlled by a bellow inside a sealed chamber. The
chamber is connect by a hose to the air bell located at
the bottom of the washer attached to the drain boot.
Electrical power is applied to the pressure switch
whenever the contacts of the door switch are closed. If
the water level is below 1/2 inch from the bottom of the
spin basket, contacts 1 to 2 of the pressure switch close
applying power to one side of the hot and cold solenoids
of the water valve and the bleach and softener solenoids
of the dispenser. The other side of the solenoids are
connected to neutral by a relay contacts on the control
board. When the cycle calls for water, depending on the
water temperature selected and the increment of the
cycle, the control board connects one, two or three of
the solenoid coils to neutral activating the water valve or
dispenser solenoids.

dispenser solenoids.
Automatic Dispenser
The automatic dispenser for detergent, liquid bleach and
fabric softener system is made up of the dispenser cavity,
39
The dispenser cavity is connected to the water inlet valve
by a hose. All the water that enters the washer passes
through the solenoid valve assembly attached to the rear
of the dispenser cavity. The water entering this assembly
has four exit paths, two of which depend on input from
the control board. The remaining two paths allow water
to go through the cavity bypass and into the soap cavity
through holes in the top of the dispenser during each fill.
Bleach and fabric softener dispensing are controlled by
the control board at specified times in the cycle by using
the electrical solenoids and redirecting some of the water
fill into their containers.
that cavity to neutral allowing part of the incoming water
to enter the cavity.
Cap
Cavity
Water Bypass
Inlet
The bleach and the fabric softener cavities have tubes
molded into the bottom which allows the cavity to be
filled without being immediately dispensed into the
washer.
When water is added to either the bleach or fabric softener
liquid, the mixture level rises between the two tubes above
the tube in the cavity and flows into the washer tub.
Since the end of the tube on the insert does not touch
the bottom of the cavity, a siphoning action is created.
When the solenoid activates and allows water into the
cavity, the added water creates an “overfill” condition and
starts the siphoning. The cavity then empty itself when
the water is turned off by the solenoid.
Water and Products
Tubes
Auto Temp System
Bleach and fabric softener inserts fit into each respective
cavity and have a tube molded onto them. These tubes
are larger than the tubes in the cavity and are designed
to fit over the tubes, but not touch the bottom of the
cavity when the insert is installed. When the correct
time comes for the bleach or the fabric softener to enter
the tub the control board connects the solenoid behind
The auto temp system controls the minimum temperature
of the cold water setting (approximately 70° F.) and
maximum temperature of the warm and hot water setting
(approximately 90° F. and 150° F. ). Auto temp system
is made up of the control board and a positive thermal
sensor connected in the water hose between the water
valve and the dispenser.
40
When warm or hot temperature is selected, the control
board connects the hot water solenoid to neutral and
cycles the cold water solenoid off and on to regulated
the temperature. When cold temperature is selected,
the control board connects the cold water solenoid to
neutral and cycles the hot water solenoid off and on to
regulated the temperature.
When the valve is in a closed position, the solenoid is not
energized. Water has bled through the diaphragm bleed
orifice placing incoming line pressure on top of the
diaphragm. The bottom of the diaphragm is essentially at
atmospheric pressure (open to the outlet) and the
pressure differential holds the valve shut.
Water Inlet Valve
The water valve is mounted to the rear rail under the
main top in the lefthand corner.
Water Valve Closed
The water inlet valve is actually two solenoid operating
valves in one body. A hot water valve and a cold water
valve discharge into a common mixing chamber. The flow
of water out of the chamber is controlled by a molded in
flow washer capable of maintaining a flow rate of 3.0 14.6 gallons per minute, with incoming water pressure of
30 to 120 P.S.I. The inlet valve is controlled by the control
board individually or together, to provide hot, cold, or
warm water for washing and cold or warm water for
rinsing.
Valve Operation
Both inlet solenoid valves are identical in construction
and operation. The valve body provides an air passage
with a large orifice and seat where the water can be
stopped. The outlet of the valve body empties into the
mixing chamber. A moveable rubber diaphragm operates
against the valve seat to start and stop the flow of water.
The diaphragm is operated by water pressure. It has a
small bleed orifice outside the seat contact area, and a
large main orifice at its center. The armature of the
solenoid serves to open and close the main orifice. The
armature operates within a closed metal tube (valve
guide) which is sealed by the outer edge of the
diaphragm to the valve body. A coil spring holds the
armature down against the diaphragm main orifice when
the solenoid is not energized.
The following line drawings and text explains basic valve
operation.
41
When the solenoid is energized, the resulting magnetic
field pulls the armature up into the valve guide.
The armature spring is compressed by this action. When
the armature moves up, it allows the water on the top of
the diaphragm to drain through the main orifice.
The diaphragm bleed orifice is much smaller than the
main orifice and will not admit enough water to maintain
pressure on the top side of the diaphragm. Thus, as the
pressure on the top of the diaphragm is reduced to
almost zero, the pressure on the bottom lifts the
diaphragm off the valve seat, allowing a full flow of water.

sensor
Water Valve Open and Diaphragm Up
When the solenoid is de-energized, the armature drops
down, closing the diaphragm main orifice. Water
continues to flow through the diaphragm bleed orifice,
equalizing the pressure and allowing the spring to push
the diaphragm down against the valve seat.
Speed Control
The speed control board is mounted to the bottom plate
of the washer in the right rear corner of the washer. The
speed control board controls the following operations:
Water Valve Closing
Drain Pump
The drain pump is mounted to the bottom plate of the
washer, in the right front corner, behind the access
panel. It operates on 120 VAC and is controlled by the
control board. The pump out specifications of the drain

the washer.
1. Advancement of the increments by connecting and
disconnecting neutral to pin 7 of the seven pin plug
of the control board.
2. The timing of each function, and the speed and
direction of the drive motor. The speed control board
42
has six terminals marked on the schematic as
A,B,C,D,E, and F that receive inputs or codes from
the control board. These inputs or codes program
the speed control board to run the drive motor at a
certain speed and for a preset length of time. When
the program is complete, the speed control board
sends a signal to the control board to advance to
the next increment.
3. The speed of the drive motor by converting input line
to neutral single phase 60 Hertz voltage, to a varying
frequency, three phase output voltage from zero to
300 VAC. By varying the amount, frequency, and
polarity of the voltage and comparing the input from
the tachogenerator on the drive motor, the speed
control board can operate the drive motor at a
preprogrammed speed and direction.
4. The balance of the load in the washer during the
spin cycle by converting the sine wave from the
tachogenerator to square waves and comparing the
distance between the square waves.
Motor
The motor is mounted to the bottom of the outer tub.
The motor is an induction, three phase AC motor that
varies speeds when the voltage from the speed control
board varies in frequency and amount. The motor has a
tachogenerator that inputs the speed of the motor to the
speed control board.

SECTION E - CONSTRUCTION
The front loading, tumble action clothes washer consists
of a perforated, cylindrical spin basket suspended
horizontally on its axis within a larger solid cylindrical tub.
This assembly is suspended by springs within a four
piece steel cabinet. A see through door and a flexible
bellows (seal) provides access for loading and unloading
clothes.
Front console models are shipped with a painted top
panel, but a galvanized panel is available if the washer is
to be installed undercounter.
that can be sealed by the cabinet door, yet allow
flexibility for the oscillation of the tub during the wash and
spin cycles.
Outer Tub Assembly
The outer tub assembly is supported by two suspension
springs and stabilized by two air shock assemblies.
Cement counter weights are mounted to the outer tub
front (top & bottom), and the rear top. These counter
weights prevent excessive oscillation of the entire
suspended assembly during an unbalanced spin cycle.
Spin Basket Assembly
Cabinet
Front Panel and Door Assembly
The spin basket is constructed of stainless steel. The
circumference of the basket is perforated to allow water
to flow through it as it revolves. A heavy steel shaft is
pressed into the spin basket support which is then bolted
to the basket. The spin basket assembly is entirely
supported by two ball bearings pressed into the rear of
the outer tub.
The front panel is riveted to the side panels for maximum
strength and structural rigidity.
A large drive pulley is mounted to the free end of the shaft
that extends through the rear of the outer tub.
Bellows
There are three plastic vanes mounted to the spin basket
to aid in the washing action during the wash cycle. The
rotation of the spin basket provides both the washing
action during the wash cycle, and water extraction
during the spin cycle.
The cabinet is made of heavy steel in a four piece design
with an enamel finish. The sides and front are riveted at
the front corners and base. The rear of the cabinet is
galvanized steel and is secured with screws.
The bellows is a rubber sleeve that seals the suspended
outer tub to the stationary cabinet front at the tub opening.
Its purpose is to provide a water tight opening into the tub

Removing the bellows (door boot):
1. If the machine has a dryer stacked on top, or is
positioned in such a way that it would be difficult to
move, you will be better off leaving it where it is.
However, if it is possible, it is easier to do this job if
the machine can be leaned back against a wall protect
the wall with cloth or rug). By leaning it back, the
tubs will hang back from the (non-removable) front
panel and you will have increased space to work. If
leaning it back is not possible, then a 6 or 8 inch
block of wood can be wedge between the front panel
and the tub to hold the tub back out of the way.
At this point, if the machine is not leaning back,
take your block of wood and while pushing back on
the tub through the opening, wedge the block between
the front panel and the tub about ten inches to the
bottom - right of the opening. This will afford you
more space to work with the boot.

4. The boot is still attached to the water inlet duct
that is located just inside the front panel at the upper
left corner from the opening. This is where the
water, soap, bleach and fabric softener enter the
tub. To remove (and later on, reattach) the clamp
holding this in place on the end of the duct make a
tool from a three inch piece of 3/8 inch soft copper
tubing by flattening one end somewhat, so that it
can be slipped over the twisted ends of the clamp.
behind the lip around the opening to the front shell
will become visible. You can either continue pulling
on the boot until it comes off or you can hook the
spring (with a piece of coat hanger fashioned into a
hook) and pull it off and then pull the boot off
separately.
Reinstalling or replacing the boot:
1. The boot has a lip that will have to be folded into the
groove behind the lip on the front tub shell. To start,
examine the boot and locate the groove in front of
the lip that corresponds to the similar lip and tab on
the tub shell.
2. Using some liquid dishwasher soap sparingly
lubricate this groove on the boot to make it easier to
slip onto the lip of the tub shell.
3. Once the groove in the boot is lubricated with soap,
locate the arrow that is located on the top of the
boot (located to the right of the extrusion that slips
over the duct). This arrow must point up when the
boot is installed.
Twist the tube counterclockwise to open the wire
clamp. Remove the clamp and pull the boot free from
the duct.
5. Using both hands, grab onto the boot at the top of
the opening to the tub and pull downward and toward
you with slow steady pressure. As the boot is pulled
free from the outer lip of the tub (at the top), the
coiled spring that holds the boot from the groove
65
4. With the boot in one hand and with the other hand
spreading the lip and groove (on the boot near the
arrow), force the lip into the groove behind the lip at
the top of the opening on the tub shell.
6. Installing the spring. Included in the replacement
boot kit is a set of three spacers.
These spacers are to be used to hold the spring in
place in the groove on the outside perimeter of the
boot. As it will take both hands to stretch this spring
into place, these spacers will prevent the spring from
popping out when you let go of it to use both hands
to stretch it further around the boot. Begin by
pushing the spring down into the groove just forward
from where the boot contacts the front tub shell at
about the 12 o’clock position. While holding the
spring in place with one hand, use the
other to tightly wedge the spacer above it, between
the spring (in its groove) and the weight ring above
it.
5. With one hand holding the boot so it does not slip
off, use the other hand to continue spreading the lip
and groove of the boot further to the right. In this way
you continue this action 360 degrees around until
the boot is mounted onto the front tub.
7. Working to the right, push the spring down into the
groove. Once the spring has been installed about 90
degrees around the opening from the first spacer,
66
the spring will begin to get tight. Install another spacer
at that point. Check the first spacer to make sure it
stays in place.
sits between the ridges on the extrusion and above
the ridge on the duct. Snap the clamp closed with
the copper tubing tool.
8. Continue working your way around until you reach
180 degrees from the first spacer. Install the third
spacer.
11. Before attaching the new boot to the front panel,
clean the surface of the front panel with alcohol or
household cleaner. Also clean the flat surface of the
new boot that will be contacting the front panel. This
step is needed to remove the mold release material
used in the manufacturing process and will allow
the adhesive to stick.
9. The spring will be extremely tight now.
12. Remount the boot onto the front panel making sure
the boot is not wrinkled. If large wrinkles exist, this
may pool water in the boot and dribble onto the floor
when the door is opened. If this is the case, pull it
loose from the front panel and remount it slightly
more clockwise or counter clockwise as needed.
Once you have gone more than half way around, the
spring will be easier to roll into the rest of the groove.
When you have the spring in place, make sure to
remove the three spacers.
10. Replace the boot extrusion back onto the duct and
pull it up over the ridge on the duct near the top of
the opening.
13. Using the adhesive supplied in the kit, sparingly apply
dots of glue under the edge of the boot.
Reinstall the clamp in such a way that the clamp
67
Spot glue at the 12 o’clock, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and
9 o’clock positions around the opening.

using the washer to allow the adhesive enough time
to dry.
