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.

Kenmore Elite HE3t 11042922200 Front Loading. F02 drain Problem


We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.

Not a problem ... Just bought a Kenmore Elite HE3t washer & dryer and read bad evals on Sears.com.....are these good machines, or should I change my order?


I would send it back ASAP, had our Kenmore Elite front loaders for less than 2 years and it has been nothing but trouble, so far it has cost us $200.00 in repair fees and washer still not fixed, expecting another so called Sears expert out tomorrow that will be another $129.00 for just showing up without guaranteeing he will fix anything.i

Kenmore elite frontload he3t dispaly is on but machine wont start


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Kenmore elite washing machine spin cycle slow. The clothes are still dripping wet when removed from the washer.


In my HE3T, this was indicative of the water pump going out. In its 8th year, my HE3T is now on its 3rd water pump.

After the complete wash cycle is finished, the clothes are still soaking wet sometimes. This is not an every load problem.

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,

F2 is a drain erro. Take the 3 screws off the botom panel in the middle, bottom you will see a large white plastic looking pump. this unscrews counter clock wise. have something ready to catch the rushing water. The trap is probably full of the rubber backing or strands of the rug. After you unscrew it, there is a trap there that can be cleaned. You may have to repeat this a couple of thimes to get all of it out.
