Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
My washer tub came out of my Kenmore front loading door to tub seal after my son pulled too large a pile of clothes out. Everything looks fine but I am holding the spring in my hand and the tub is totaly out of the seal. Do I need to follow the same instructions as if I was installing a new seal or is there a short cut? It seems a pity to remove all else when it is still water tight. Getting the spring back in the track with out the support of the tube seems impossable. My washer is an older model serial no. 417.29042992
If you are talking about the inner spring that holds the door bellow to the tub, it's going to require two hands to get the spring to go back in the groove. You will need to carefully remove the bellow from the front opening of the door, first. On the 417 models, such as yours, the bellow is usually glued in place aorund the door frame and held in place by a spring to the tub. Use a putty knife to carefully peel the rubber form the washer facing. Once completed, you can glue it back in place with some appliance adhesive. To get the spring back in the groove on the tub facing, you will need to start at the top and have someone hold it on place as you work your way around the the tub. It's a real bear to get back in at times. Let me know if this helps you. Please post back if you have questions.
