Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
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.
