This is a very simple repair, if you follow the step-by-step instructions. Take your time and if you have questions, let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS An alternative method is to work through the door with the front panel in place, but this limits access. To make things easier, it is strongly recommended that you remove the front panel.

I recently purchased a home which this washer was included. It has a moldy odor. I cleaned it out under rubber ring but seems to keep coming back. What can I do?


The door seal will need to be replaced. Once the mold sets in deep it will keep reappearing every couple weeks or so. Here is a link that will help with the door seal. It's a different model but a similar procedure would be used. Replacing a door seal

Kenmore front load HE3 is leaking from underneath the unit , I checked the gray seal and it seems fine , I did have a large load in . Any ideas


If your Kenmore FRONT LOADER is leaking, the following link can give you guidance on how to inspect the washer to determine where the source of the leak may be coming from:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader


Most commonly, the source of the leak comes from the door bellow (gray rubber seal). They do wear out with age and can develop small rips and tears. A routine inspection of the perimeter of the door seal can determine if you have any holes. If the seal is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:


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


The manufacturer recommends that you leave the washer door open between washes to prevent the seal from becoming permanently stretched. Once the seal stays compressed constantly it can stretch and not seal properly. In addition, leaving the door open helpd let the wash tub air out and prevent mold, mildew and musty odors.

Replacement parts (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 listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

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

Front Door Seal/Baffle Replacement


I need to replace a baffle from inside my Elite HE3T. Do you have directions? Only 1 came off but when I order the new one apparently it only comes in 3, so show I replace the other 2 as well? (if I can figure out how)

Of course the part did not come with any! And Sears customer service is of no help and the technical people have not responded to me.
Thanks,
