Front loading washer seal came out along with some sort of wire

On my kenmore front loading washer we were doing laundry when it started sounding like someone dumped a bunch of change in it when we went to check it there was a wire with a spring on one end and something else one the other and the seal is no longer in place. Is this a simple fix and if so how do you go about fixing it. This is Friday and I cant get anyone here till Tues and we are a family of 5.

Kenmore front load washer door won't latch lock light on


On some Kenmore front load models, if the black gasket around the door opening is unseated (for example, because you drag some heavy wet laundry over it) the door will not engage the lock and stay closed. This is a feature to prevent the washer from leaking when the gasket is not sealed. To fix it, simply reseat the gasket and the door will close and lock.

I am not able to wash any laundry. when I press start.....F1 flashes and a beeping noise sounds. I am unable to cancel it out, open door... anything. Nothing works.


Hello

F1 error and the beeping sounds in your Kenmore front load washer means that the Electronic control board has gone bad and needs replacement. You can buy the parts from Sears if you want to do the repair yourself. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Loud jet noise in spin cycle on Kenmore stackable top load washer


it is the drum bearing seal and it has gone out and ruined the bearings,you would need a lip seal kit and appropriate bearings for that particular unit,i do a lot of maytag front loads and it can take anywhere from 2 hours up to 8 hours depending how the old bearings come out and the damage to the bearing and seal surfaces,the sooner you get to it the less chance of severe damage it will cause,because water will kep on destroying bearings till they lock up and destroy the drive pulley

My washer doesn't open...


The instruction manual suggests running the "drain & spin" cycle, because there is most likely water left in the machine.
