Rubber gasket between door and drum fell out.

In middle of running a load the entire gray silicon main gasket between door and the drum fell into the drum. The flat tighten band and the round wire with the spring tensioner were in there with it. The gasket and both bands are completely in tact and out of the machine. How do I put this back together.

Here's the repair manual for your machine. Maybe someone can find a free version: http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/R...

See if this does it:

Remove the bottom portion of the washer by unscrewing the 3 torque screws (7mm). Open the washer door and remove the outer spring loaded clamp. Peel old bellow off outer rim of washer and remove detergent inlet spout by sliding off old bellow. Reach in under washer and loosen clamp with flat head screw driver that goes around bellow attached to drum.

OK I have it all put back together now. Last question. there is a small round spray jet at the center top of the bellows, should this be directed towards the door or away from the door.

I really don't know but it seems reasonable to me to spay toward the clothes.

Ok, the answer above gave me a starting point. Ultimately I found it easier to take the top off by removing the three top screws on the back of the machine and sliding the top back and lifting off. This will allow you to take the top control panel off and completely take off the front facing. This will allow you better access to the screw on the clamp that is around the back of the gasket. This also lets you put a new gasket on if you need to. Put everything back on the way you took it off and you will be good to go.

You don't need to take the entire machine apart. If you take off the bottom front panel you can reach all the places you need to without messing about by removing the drum etc. Just take off the front spring seal on the bellow and then undo the screw clamp and ease out the bellow through the gap where the front panel was between the drum and the front of the machine. Insert new bellow, or old one if it's not ripped, up through the gap, ensuring that the tab on the bellow lines up with the space at the top of the drum. Attach soap hose to bellow. Squeeze screw clamp in the same way making sure screw is in a place that you can reach to tighten. Tighten, then ease edge of bellow around inside of door. Finally put in spring clamp.
