If it's a front loader, then there should be a kick-plate on the bottom with 3 hex screws on the very bottom of the plate. If it's a top loader, then the entire shell comes off if it's a whirlpool or kitchenaid.

How to Replace rubber seal on front load washer


The rubber seal on your washer and similar front loading washers is a relatively easy repair. The seal is held onto the front washer panel and the fixed inside washer drum with separate spring-loaded rings that are reusable. So, don't throw them away! You need to remove the front ring from the front panel before you can remove the front panel. With the ring removed the gasket should be pushed into the washer; noting any drain holes, so that you can reinstall the new gasket in the same orientation. Once the outer ring is removed and the front panel is out of the way, you will have access to the ring holding the gasket to the drum. After the inside ring is removed, the gasket should pull off the fixed washer drum. You are now ready to install the new replacement gasket.

The amount of disassembly of the front of the washer is your option if it interferes with the installation. The door is usually heavy and it is useful to remove it from the front panel. Usually, a couple screws holds it in place. Removal of the front panel may also involve removal of the top of the washer and moving the control panel out of the way so that you can access the screws holding the front panel onto the frame of the washer. The locking latch may have to be temporarily removed but can be left in place if you simply push the front panel out of the way to have access to the inside gasket ring. It is useful to take pictures of each stage of the disassembly process to make sure your reinstall everything as it was.

Installation of the gasket starts with reattaching it to the fixed washer drum flange and then replacing the spring-loaded ring to hold it in place. Make sure the gasket orientation matches the original position. After the gasket is attached to the drum, you can now reinstall the front panel. If you unscrewed the latch mechanism when you took off the panel, now is the time to reinstall it as it can be manually held in place behind the gasket. The door can usually remain off the front panel until installation of the gasket onto the front panel is complete. Now bring the gasket forward and reinstall it on the flange of the front panel; secure it in place with the spring-loaded ring. Your gasket is now reinstalled. Simply reinstall the door and your repair is complete.

Tools needed include a blade screwdriver to help pry the rings off the gasket seal and one or two specialty screwdrivers (usually Torx or Philips) to remove the front panel.

Nd on screen will not spin


How to fix a Samsung Washernd washer error code. You can make this repair your self and in most cases without parts. Let me explain what the nd on a Samsung washer control panel means exactly. The nd error code stands for No Drain. When this washer error code comes up the washer will not spin either.

To fix this issue you will need to slide the unit forward to access the pump if there is no access panel on the lower front. If the clean out access panel is on the lower front bail the water from the washer and twist the filter head counter-clockwise. If the front panel does not have the access panel the washer will need to be slide forward. With the washer pulled out the back access panel can be removed. With the panel removed, the drain pump will be visible. Remove the two hoses on the pump followed by the two 7/16 bolts that mount the pump down. With the pump off, you can now remove the debris inside.

Can I take off the front panel of a Kenmore/Whirlpool washer to change the bellow?




Removing the boot will require that the front panel, door switch and console be removed.
To remove the front panel first remove the three screws securing the toe panel to the front of the washer and lift the toe panel up slightly pulling it forward.
Next remove the two screws securing the top front panel to the washer. The front panel can now be removed.

Removing front panel from kenmore elite HE-3 front load washer?


If you've removed the screws and the panel sticks, tapping on each side will knock it loose. The panel should drop down, then off. You can also try propping the two front feet of the washer up slightly for better access. A 2x4 works real well. This will allow more room for the panel to drop and gives better access to the screws. The washer is very heavy, so you may need some assistance to lift the front. Either lift from the bottom, or place your hands on the front facing of the cabinet to push the washer back. DO NOT push on the door or control panel.

If you still need assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

We have the kenmore stackable washer and dryer the water won't drain my husband thinks something is stuck in the pump Any ideas?


On the bottom front of the washer there are 2 screws.
Remove these screws and insert a screwdriver in the space where the front panel meets the washer top and push down on the screwwdriver. The locking tabs will come down with the front panel.
Pull the panel off and set it aside.
When you are through with the repair, tilt the machine back slightly and insert the panel tabs in the groove, place a screwdriver handle or something of similar thickness under the washer and front panel. Let it down on this and it will hold the panel up so that you can get the screws back in.
