Question about Washing Machines
Have older Kenmore Front Load Washer Model#41741142000. Bought used and was not used for about 8 months. On first load, water leaks out of bolted seam at bottom of tub, mostly during spin cycle. Tried tightening bolts but still leaking. Is there a recommended sealer, or is there a gasket to replace?
There is a seal between the two drum halves. The part is available through the Kenmore web site. I believe it is less than $20. This is the 3rd one of these seals that I have heard of go bad, not sure why or what the problem is. Although the washers are some what older.
The web site is below. Also I will try to attach a diagram of your washer, the seal is item #21.
Good luck, let me know.

First check the hot/cold water connections at the faucet and at the back of the washer, make sure there are no leaks there. Also check the connection where the water drains out of the washer, it's the long U shaped hose attached to the bottom back and is inserted on the other end probably in a wall drain, make sure no leaks are there. You could turn the washer over on the front side but you would probably have to disconnect the hot/cold and drain hoses. simple more than likely to fix it a connection is simply loose.
If you purchased the washer new and not 1year older then you still have a warranty on the tub for leaks, check your warranty.
Let me know
