Kenmore he3t door locked cant reset or open


Kenmore HE3t sanitary cycle setting has changed. Water temp selection only allows Hot/Cold selection but should offer the Extra Hot selection. All other settings test out properly. Is there a way to reset factory settings for cycles?

Kenmore HE3T washer leaking water


The rubber seal is called the "bellow". Replacements can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, or repairclinic.com. All three sites offer great service, so shop around for the best prices.

For instructions on how to replace the bellow yourself, follow this link:

This is not a difficult repair, but it can be a bit intimidating to a beginner. If you have questions along the way, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.

Front Door Seal/Baffle Replacement


I need to replace a baffle from inside my Elite HE3T. Do you have directions? Only 1 came off but when I order the new one apparently it only comes in 3, so show I replace the other 2 as well? (if I can figure out how)

Of course the part did not come with any! And Sears customer service is of no help and the technical people have not responded to me.
Thanks,

Washer tub slowly fills with water


Is your problem a SLOW FILL problem, or a problem with WATER DRIPPING FROM THE RUBBER DOOR SEAL - or BOTH? If you have a slow fill problem, this is generally caused by a bad fill valve, which can be attributed to hard water deposits or well water mineral deposits. Sometimes the fill valve can be removed, cleaned and reinstalled, but most of the time a new fill valve is required. If you are experiencing water leaking from the rubber door seal (bellow), it may be time to replace it. Sometimes the seal can develop a wrinkle or crease where it meets the glass, which can cause leaks. Water dripping from the door when you open after washing a load is normal. Water dripping during a load is NOT. The bellow may also have started to rip or tear inside the door which may not be noticeable until you pull the folds of the bellow back and look underneath it. I hope this helps.
