Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
The gasket came out of line and the metal ring which goes on it came off. Can't figure out where this fits to replace it. Can you answer this and give me some sort of diagram so that I can see where it is placed?
If the outer door spring came loose, the following link will explain how to reinsert it:
The link explains the entire procedure for replacing the door bellow (rubber boot). Read line item 12 for instructions on how to reinsert the outer spring. It will insert around the door opening in a small groove around the perimeter of where the rubber door boot fits to the door frame.
What can cause this spring to come loose is over stuffing the drum to the point where items are getting caught in the door boot and pulling. I don't know if this is your situation, but offered the advice just in case. While the washer DOES perform better when more items are in the drum, resist the urge to overload.
If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
