The rubber seal kenmore 3.8 cu ft he3t king size capacity

THE RUBBER SEAL HAS COME OFF FROM THE BASKET IT LOOKS LIKE THE METAL BAND HAS LOOSENED I CAN'T FIND ANY IINSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO GET IT BACK ON. I HAVE TH EMACHINE TAKEN PARTIALLY APART I CAN'T GET THE CONTROL PANEL OFF TO GET WHERE I CAN GET THE RUBBER SEAL AND BAND BACK O ON
I have a 3 year old washing machine bought at Sears. It is a Kenmore and it says it is model #417-43052200. My rubber seal is not attached to the drum. It came off at the bottom and water leaked to the floor when doing a load. In trying to re-attach it (very difficult) I suceeded in getting the entire rubber seal de-attached from the drum. How do I re-attach the entire seal now? Seems impossible.

Our rubber seal was torn and we had a Sears repairman replace it - he said it required a special tool to install it (which he didn't have) but through some long and physical process, he was finally able to get it on.

My washing machine gets a sud error often during the cycle. I have cleaned the drain as suggested


Vinegar does a great job of cutting suds and bubbles. I would put it in the detergent, softener, and bleach reservoirs and run a cycle. Then make sure you read the detergent amounts. It's easy to overdo detergent on a front-loader.
