Tip

Unfortunately after we got our machine back together something was put back...


This advice is for the Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet FRONT LOADER style washing machines. A lot of concerns have been raised about door bellows molding, mildewing, and/or ripping and needing replaced. A replacement bellow isn’t cheap (prices vary, but are around $75-80), so hopefully these helpful steps will eliminate the need to call a repair service and pay the additional labor charges. This is a repair of MODERATE difficulty. Just follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the washer top panel by removing the three torx-type screws (or 7mm) where it attaches in the rear of the washer. The panel should slide back, and then lift off.
3. Remove the operator console by removing the dispenser and the scew(s) behind it. Take a putty knife and insert it under the console seam right above the door. If you push in slightly while pulling outwards the panel pops off. Use care not to pull or damage any of the wiring. You can leave the wires attached and simply lay the console across the top of the washer out of the way.
4. Locate the wire hoop retainer around the rubber door boot. It is located behind the rubber seam where it attaches to the door frame. Follow this hoop around to the bottom of the door opening and locate the wire tension spring. Gently pry this spring apart and pull the wire hoop from the groove. Pull the rubber boot from the frame and push it inside towards the wash tub. You will also have to remove the door boot from the fill tube on the left hand side of the door opening. There is a small wire clamp holding it in place.
5. Remove the three screws that hold the door latch assembly in place. This is on the right hand side of the door opening. You can leave the latch in place as long as you remove the screws and push it inside slightly to remove it from the front casing of the washer.
6. Remove the door by removing the screws holding the hinges in place. Use care to support the door hinges when loosening. They can bend. Set the door aside in a location where it will not get stepped on or broken.
7. Remove the lower kick panel under the door. There are 3 screws under the bottom edge holding it in place. Sometimes the panel can stick. A slight tap on either side will knock it free.
8. Remove the front washer casing by removing the four remaining screws that are holding it in place. There should be two at the top and two at the bottom. Set the front casing aside.
9. Remove the old door boot by locating the large clamp that attaches it to the wash tub. Loosen the 7mm nut and the boot will detach from the tub. Also remove the boot from the fill tube coming from the dispenser.
10. Install new door boot on the wash tub and install clamp. There should be instructions that come with the door boot with guide marks to ensure you align it correctly. Once you have the boot in place, tighten the clamp enough to where it is snug. DO NOT over-tighten or you may damage the tub and or clamp. In most cases the clamp will break.
11. Once you have the boot in place, re-install everything in the reverse order of how I explained to disassemble. Make sure you connect the door latch assembly BEFORE you re-install the outer portion of the door boot. Also, make sure you install the boot completely over the fill tube. There should be a ridge on the tube where to stop. Sometimes the tube is not inserted all way into the boot and water will leak behind it. The clamp is always difficult to get back in place. If you cannot get the clamp to go back over the tube, you can live without it. Some newer models do not have them installed. Just make sure it is a snug fit where the rubber boot fits ALL the way back to the plastic ridge on the tube.
12. When you get the point where you are ready to install the door boot back over the frame of the door opening ensure you fit it snugly all the way around the door. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Make sure to wire spring points towards the bottom. As you work your way around the door to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, you will need to maintain some constant downward pressure while pulling the spring apart in order to snap it back into place. It would be advisable to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this as it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.
13. Once the door boot is back in place, re-install the operator console and washer top.
14. At the operator console, select DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN and press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (has to be the same button, though). This will place the washer in diagnostics mode. You should hear the door latch lock and "C00" will be displayed on the console. The washer will run through a series of tests filling the tub, tumbling, draining, and then a final spin. If you do not wish to wait for the test to complete you can press CANCEL at any time. The test checks out everything and takes about 15 minutes. Look for any leaks.

I hope you find these instructions helpful and good luck to you.

How do you take the center spinner thing out so you can wash it?


My husband is a plumber. he says u have to unbolt the top of the machine and the sides. then disconnect the drum (the part u put the clothes in) and then take the belt off and slide the drum out and separate the drum from the center post. that leaves the center post and the motor. then u can clean it and put it back together. he says its not an easy process. if u need more help please feel free to ask!

My washing machine center pole does not rotate properly


have you taken out the agitator to see if the splines in the top are maybe stripped and not allowing it to get a good grip on the top of the transmission (or center pole as you called it)?

Whirlpool Quiet Wash II center pole doesn't spin.


No. This is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs. The upper portion of the agitator (called the auger) has a cam assembly with small agitator dogs that act as a clutching mechanism to drive the auger during the wash cycle. They wear out over time and need to periodically be replaced. The following link explains what they are and how to replace them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number is included in the link I provided. You can purchase replacements at appliancepartspros.com for about $5. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam replacement kit which includes the dogs, cam, seals and washers.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I do not know how to remove the top from my whirlpool washing machine to replace the lid switch


Unplug the machine.
There is a screw at the bottom of the console on each end of the machine, remove them.

The console should then lift up and roll over the back(just make sure its supported or suports its self).

At the center of the machine there is a white plug, for the safety switch, unplug it.

On each side of the machine there is a brass colored clip, use a flat screwdriver and insert it into the front of the clip, push back smartly, this will release the clip. PAY ATTENTION to the way the clip comes out. (which end is the front of the clip) mark things if your not too handy so it goes back together easly.

This machine is put together alot like a puzzle so paying alot of attention to what you do will alllow you to put it back together.

The whole cabinet rolls forward, the sides along the bottom sit on an edge on the bottom, but the front is hooked UNDER the bottom edge. try to notice this. as you rotate the cabinate the front will fall free after you rotate the whole thing over about 45 degrees. The back will kinda float.
