You certainly can. carries the part for about $64. Just type in your model number and look under the "Door and Latch Parts" section for item 1. You may also consider items 2 and 8. Item 2 is the rear bellow clamp. Item 8 is the front bellow clamp. Order only if your existing clamps are damaged or broken. If you need instructions on how to replace the bellow, the following link explains:

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

My ge front load washer has a substantial leak when it is running. it is leaking from the bottom of the unit. It is not the drain hose or a clog in the drain. But it leaks like crazy PLEASE HELP

Check the door gasket for rips. Also there is a gasket between the two halves of the the outer drum, check that for leaks. Look at the pump housing and the hose that connects the pump to the drum for leaks.

Water leaks from under the door when in rinse with water at half level agitating . i think gasket is problem and i order gasket but to open and taking out and putting back is hard . tips please

Check the glass door for a build up of soap residue as this will tend to make the door leak. Also check the door boot gasket for any tears or rips. If you have the gasket call a service technician such as Sears to install it as you have to know how to do this !

My front load kenmore washer door gasket is garbelled

Something probably got caught in the seal and pulled it out of place. If u run washer so that it fills up and starts tumbling,,, and there is no water leak,, there is a good chance u can repair this yourself. So if there is no water leaking,,, you can try and take out the bottom front panel and twisting, or shoving it back into place. If there is water leaking,,, than chances are its ripped or broken, and will need to be completely replaced

Door gasket leaks at the bottom when spray nozzle goes on

happy new years,,i believe you mean when the recirulating pump comes on about 4 to 8 mintues into door and fell if any lint stuck up there if so use a needle nose pliers to pull out..check the bellows or gasket around door and make sure your not ripped ,,or missing a this is cheaper than buying new gasket...unplug unit ..than remove door switch and put 1 washer on the back of each screw ,,but put washer on inside of unit between panel and door latch ...this will push latch back and make door come forward so to be here,,onthejob
