Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
I determined the leaks are coming from the shell around the drum, solution tighten bolts or replace the gasket. In order to tighten bolts I need to have access to front of the washer, problem - how to you remove the front panels. I found no way to reach the bolts with the back panel off. I read on-line very difficult to remove and replace gasket (especially lining up the boot around drum/door? is this true? Any help or suggestions will be appreciated The boot partially came off of the drum- not sure why, but a towel had black marks on it and the machine made a loud noise. Can I still use the machine or not? Is it worth callling a Sears guy or should I just get a new machine (only 5 years old.)
It's not difficult to line up the boot around the door. The difficult part is taking out the tub (basket and plastic shell). Everything needs to be disconnected, and removed from the back, as well the tub is very heavy and best to do as a two person job.
If your washer is only 5 years old, it's kind of a 50/50. The cost (with labour) to fix the leak would come to approx $450 cdn.
