Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer
My washer has a leak. Using a flashlight and a mirror I can see where the leak is. The problem is that I cannot get the front panel off to get access to the broken part. I got the bottom service panel off, but the tube that is broken is near the top, under the soap tray. It looks like I need to take the door off first, but the screws are SUPER tight. They'll be stripped before they budge. Is there another way?
PS. the washer is a front loading kenmore that looks similar to the pictured one for this group, but I don't know that it is exactly the same model.
Thanks for any help.
What you need to do is to have the following tools. torx and small wrench. used the torx screw for the screw next the tray soap on top and used the small wrench to open the four bolts two on top and two on the bottom. take the front panel off and then check for cloth inside the tube front the top where the water is coming and follow alway to where the hose connect to the machine that is usualy where the leaks is coming maybe your hose has a hole or somthing stuck inside that hose and that makes the water leak. It happen to my and I fix it.... it work well now....

Jason, you dont need to take the whole thing apart to get at that, in a nutshell take the top cover off and take the nuts out that hold the detergent/fabric softener dispenser in, it has nuts on the front and on the top, once you get the dispenser out its a lot easier to work on that coiled rubber tube, you can at least get your hands in there to take it off, i hope you dont find the same problem i did, the plastic around the rubber hose was cracked meaning the tup itself is cracked. i filled the cracks in the plastic with jb weld and wait a while. ive had nothing but issues with this washer , very poorly constructed.

Tips for a great answer:
1. Unplug the washer
2. Pull the washer out to tilt it back so you can
reach the screws below the front panel and
remove it. (You will need something to catch
the water once the hose is removed from
the bottom of washer)
3. Loosen the bolt with the sliver clamp on the
bottom of the washer. The water will begin to
come out while your loosening the clamp. (Do
not remove any GREEN clamps)
4. Once the water is out, you can stick your hand
inside the hose to clean it out.
