You may get the model number by opening the door and looking at the score plate above the tub. The model number is going to be a set of letters and figures in LG model, a design which appears similar, or identical, to WT1701CV, or WM3250HVA, the best reviewed unit.

Pull the washer and remove the screws in the rear of the top which are in two attachments. Slide the top back about an inchbeing cautious of its own sharp metal edges, and lift it up to eliminate it. Place it aside.

Return to the front left of the LG washer, and pull the dispenser drawer out. Depress the blue locking port, then slide the drawer out and place it apart. Unfasten the screws on either side of the drawer opening, which hold the control panel set up, and save them. Have a look for a mounting thread at the rear of the control panel and eliminate it. Move left right and depress the control panel mounting tabs, by hand or with the flat of a screwdriver blade, to release the panel. Place it aside.

Unfasten the top front panel mounting screws uncovered by removal of the control panel. Lift the panel up and out. Loosen with pliers the clamps on the circulation and steam hoses revealed above the tub in the 12 o’clock position. Lift the clamps up, and pull the hoses off their vents.

Set the original bathtub boot bolt above the seal, together with the spring near the peak of the bath tub. This is the most challenging part of the task. Work with two screwdrivers or with an assistant if you don’t have a spring growth tool, which makes the job easier. Work the ring into place and work together with the screwdrivers to lever the ring just as you would use tire levers on a bike tire to slowly work the seal.
