Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer

Kenmore 43042 front loader, black boot (?) twisted and loose

Kenmore 43042 front loader, I washed a white throw pillow (among other clothes) and one corner was black when I pulled it out. I can see that the black flexible gasket type thing is now not right, but not sure how to fix. Machine didn't leak on that load and I ran it empty and no leaking. The black gasket thing looks looser than it was.

    It is the first time, and it always was loose, but it is now different, like it's not attached the way it was. Any thoughts?

The black gasget on the inside of the door is suppose to be loose and flexible for sealing purposes.
when your washer went thru it's spin cycle is it possible the throw pillow got cought between gasget and wetal tub?

also is this the only time you noticed this ?

Kenmore washer leaves dark streaks on light colored clothes


I suggest you first take a clean, white cloth wetted with a stronger solvent such as 'Oops,' carburator or brake cleaner (with these two, DON"T overspray, they will damage plastic and paint) and wipe the drum inside to make sure there is not some gunk adhering that is gradually depositing itself with each wash cycle.
If you have a shade-tree mechanic in the family, they may have gotten a gob of grease on clothing that transfered to the inside of your machine.
If you don't find enough on the cloth to have caused the problem, I think you have lost a seal on the drum-side of the transmission.

Black oil or grease on clothes after washing


is you machine a top loader or front loader? if its a front loader the black marks could be from the boot. WIpe the boot with a good cleaner. and try not to over load machine. and if it a top loader your transmission is probably leaking oil back into clothes tub. You could have it rebuilt $$$ or better replace the machine.

Kenmore front loader


the drain pump on this unit has a clean out. There is probably debris in the pump. remove the lower front cabinets. There are three screws almost at floor level that hold it in place and open the drain pump it has a handle on the drain pump that you can twist to remove.

Belt comes off


maybe not, is the belt condition good, if so check for any wobble on the pulley, you may have worn drum bearings, this will cause the large pulley to wobble and throw the belt when it spins, also you can check the belt for being tight, it should be fairly tight but not tight enough to cause it to snap, if loose there should be adjustment at the motor end on the motor housing, all of this is assuming this is not a brand new belt, if so have you bought the right one?

Can I stack my Kenmore washer (front loader) and dryer?


They can be stacked, but you will have to purchase a special kit to do it. Sears should be able to order the kit for you. Without the kit, when the washer goes into spin, the dryer will fall off (not good at all). Good Luck!!! Jim
