Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

HE4t kenmore washer rubber drum gasket not attatched.

The drum gasket is not attached in front and it's leaking water. I opened up the bottom front panel and it looks like the counter balance came loose and is laying in front of the motor and filter. (looks olike a large piece of concrete) I've changed the pump once and cleaned the filter a couple times.

Removed the top and Front reinstalled the counter balance. the rubber gasket has a 1" tear in it which I patched with a rubber tire patch for now. Two of the locking nuts for the leveling of the machine were loose it went out of level causing the machine to rock and probably caused the counter balance to loosen up. My daughters come in from collage and over load it on weekends which adds to the machines demise. All have been warned.

Water is leaking from the rear of the drum on our Kenmore HE4t. I've had the back off the machine - there is black (grease) running down from the hub, water leaking from there down onto the floor. How...


that would involve changing the outer tub (the only way to buy the tub seal) and the inner drum. big job and very costly as any warranty is from sears and they will only give you parts for free if you pay them to put them in for you too.
