Question about Washing Machines
My rubber boot on my kenmore elite HE3t that I have had for five years is full of mildew I can't get out. What part do I order to replace this? Model number 11042926202
The part number is 8182119 and can be viewed at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look for item number 5 under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading. In addition, you may not need them, but just in case, you may consider the inner and outer bellow clamps that hold the door seal in place. This are items 6 and 14 under the same heading. Sometimes they become damaged. If you need instructions on how to replace the door bellow, the following link explains:
If you have any questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: You can find this part a little cheaper at appliancepartspros.com. Just use the "Search By Part Number" selection as your search criteria.
To keep the new bellow from mildewing, it is recommended by the manufacturer that you leave the washer door open while not in use and to periodically clean the bellow. Pull back the rubber folds in the door and make sure you do not have anything stuck that will cause odors and mildew. Small garments such as socks and underwear can commonly get stuck in this area of the door. Also, if you do not routinely use hot water, it is recommended that you run a "clean" cycle with a small amount of bleach about once a month to kill any bacteria.
