If it's stackable, you'll want to start by removing the dryer.
Open the door and remove the outer bellow spring around the bellow to release it from the cabinet lip. At this point lean the machine back to give more space between the drum and the cabinet.
Remove the kickplate for easier access and to visually check for leaks later.
At the top/right of the bellows (close to the tub) loosen the bellow to tub clamp and pull out the bellow.
Install the new bellow starting at the top by aligning the marks. Work your way around until bellows is properly seated snug against the tub.
Replace the tub to bellow clamp and tighten it (make sure the bellow stays snug against the tub while tightening the clamp). Once in place, lay the machine back to level and reinstall the front of the bellows to the cabinet with the outer bellow spring clamp.
With towels handy (just in case), let the machine fill and agitate for a few minutes and check for water leaks. If all is well, re-install the kickplate and wash some laundry.
Good luck!

You: Model #11047532601 Kenmore Residential washer doesn't turn on wath could be the cause???


see the following steps: use the common sense God bless you see the diagram.
1. No power to the washer
Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Lid switch
The washing machine may not function if the lid switch is defective. The switch is usually located near the door. Replace if found defective.

I just replaced the door latch on my kenmore front loader washer model 11047532601 the door locked light doesnt come on and the door locked light isnt coming on all i get is beep beep beep


Hello,

You have a bad CCU. This is the control board on the top of the unit. Remove the top, three screws on the back. The board clips into the position. You can try to unplug the wires one at a time, the control will probably have to be replaced.

With the model I would be able to better assist you.

Why does my Kenmore He2 Plus front load washer not start and display an F02 code?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The "F2" on your model of washer indicates the machine has detected a fault or obstruction in the drain process.


Chances are the pump itself is being obstructed by debris or some other foreign object as opposed to being faulty, although a faulty pump can`t be ruled out...yet.

Here`s how to check it and clean it...there is also a bellows at the bottom I`ll show you how to check

How do I go about replacing the door seal (bellows) on my kenmore elite washer?


The following link explains how to access and replace the bellow one:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load

A replacement bellow (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list, have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and identifying any parts you may need.


NOTE: The manufacturer recommends that you leave the door OPEN between washes to, not only allow the bellow to keep from becoming permanently stretched, but also to allow the wash tub to breath to prevent mold and mildew from forming. This will extend the life of the bellow and minimize any odors in your washer.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore Bellow Replacement


Make sure the drain holes are clear in the bottom of the bellow. Also, make sure the bellow is aligned properly. There should have been an alignment arrow at the 12 o'clock position. Hope this helps.
