Good boot, difficult install.
April 23, 2022

The boot itself was fine. It did not leak after I installed it. The installation of the rear spring was very difficult. I watched four different youtube videos ahead of time, but the installation still took two days of intermittent work. My clothes washer was built in 2006, and no video showed my exact model. The spring was a continuous coil spring with a very high spring constant. The best tips from the videos were: use silicon spray on the boot groove use spring clamps to maintain the gain after prying each section onto the lip two pairs of hands will be needed after fitting the boot groove onto the rib, push the boot material into the drum before installing the spring. The two plastic dowels supplied to hold the spring into the groove were not enough in number and they tended to fall out as the next section of spring was forced into the groove. Spring clamps work much better. If I had to the job again, I would spend the time to make a custom tool similar to a tire iron spoon used to install a tubeless tire onto a rim. It would made of two steel pieces fastened together. The first would be 1/16 inch thick by about 1 inch wide and about 8 inches long. A second piece would be 1/4 inch thick by 1 inch wide. It would be about 1/2 inch shorter and the business end would have a large convex radius on the end, about 1 inch. The end would also have a shallow groove filed into it, to fit the spring cross section. With the pieces glued or bolted together, the 1/16 tongue would slip under the spring, and the end of the thicker plate would push the spring into position over the groove in the boot. The tool could be slid in the circumferential direction around the opening, with spring clips attached behind it to hold the spring in place as the tool advances. I had two C-clamps and borrowed four spring clamps from my son-in-law to get the job done.

Correct part, tricky installation
September 22, 2021

Identifying the part for my Frigidaire washer was pretty straight-forward, and cudos to Sears Parts Direct for making it so. Also, delivery was pretty fast, too. DIY installation was definitely challenging, though. I found useful the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7RrId7wmF8 . If you are unfamiliar with this task, like I was, it will be helpful to check out in advance a couple more related videos that can be found. Removing the old bellow was easy, as was the entire process until it was time to re-install the inner spring. I removed 1 star from the product because I found utterly useless the 2 pieces that are supposed (?) to help hold the spring in place when installing it. Instead, I went and bought a couple of clamps like the ones shown in the video, and they did the trick for me. I caution you to be very careful when installing the inner spring because you will need to stretch it at very high tensions. It took me several attempts to place it successfully, but eventually things worked out well. It also took me a couple of breaks between attempts because of the physical effort to stretch the spring and keep it stretched while trying to fit it into its place. It was the first time I ever performed this process, and it took me overall out a couple of hours to complete.

Very difficult to install

You cannot use a spring tool so it is a very difficult installation.

Works as advertised
October 26, 2020

Took about an hour to install. Installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. It helps to have 2 sets of hands reinstalling the spring.

Hard to install. But we did it.
October 02, 2020

The two spacers provided were not enough for me to complete the installation, so I went to the hardware store and bought some wooden dowels and a saw so that I could build more dowels. After three days and lots of struggling, I was able to install it.

Good fix
March 07, 2020

The new bellows work good but the 2 installation tools were less than no help. I tried using them like shown and had them let the spring loose at the worst time. I still have a bruise across the back of my hand from where the spring got loose and smacked me.

Have patience
August 03, 2019

You will need time and patience to complete the task. I recommend a few videos for reference and some spring clamps to keep things in place.
