Default bellows replacement - docs or instructions available?
Model Number: FWFB9200ES0   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The bellows on my front loader Frigidaire (Electrolux) have torn. I see its easy to purchase a new one, is it a straightforward job to replace it on my own? Any documentation or instructions available? Handy with cars and computers, but have never worked on appliances.

Thanks for any advice.

It is a frustrating job, helps to have a helper (not a spouse), some beveridges and a good vocabulary of swear words. It also helps to have a service manual, so he is a link to one.

This pdf manual is great, thank you very much.

Any idea how long labor would be if we hired a technician from the local repair shop? We're considering purchasing a new machine if parts + labor for this repair run too high.

I cannot tell exactly what a service tech would charge for the parts and the labor, but here is the part on this site for about $150.00

Part number: AP3869103

Part number: AP3869103


and you could expect a service call to charge at least $200.00 for the part and $75 to $125 for labor.

Maybe that new machine is the way to go if you do not feel comfortable replacing it yourself.

Good luck with whatever you decide.

sidfink43 - the manual was exactly what I needed to take the washer apart and remove the bellows. New bellows are ordered, re-assembly should be easy enough. Thanks again for your help.

back together with the new bellows and three loads already ran. Sidfink43, thank you again for all your assistance. The manual was a huge help.

You were right on, absolutely a 2 man job to get those bellows attached properly.

Well really glad to hear about your success, and even with two of you getting that thing on is not an easy job, congrats all the way around.
