I have a Kenmore Mod#11042922220 Ser#CSM1105042
The front seal has torn, I think it is referred to as a boot seal or tub seal. Is this a piece I can purchase to replace?

Hi
You can't really repair the seal, but you can replace it with a new one for under $130 if you do the repair yourself. You can order it online or from a local appliance shop, as prices vary slightly from place to place.
However it's a relatively easy repair, all you need to do is remove the spring retaining wire around the outer edge of the bellows gasket, just peel it back at the edge to see it. Now locate the locking loop by going around the rim. Once you find the locking loop, you can remove it using a couple pairs of small needle nose pliers as they make it easier to get off.
Once you've done that, you'll see the locking plate that holds the back side of the bellows gasket onto the outer washer tub. Remove those fasteners and you can get the bellows off and start in on putting the new bellows onto the washer, just reversing the order you used in the removal process.
Just take your time removing the old gasket so you remember what you're doing and when installing the new gasket so as not to rip or tear it in the process. I'd also suggest you let the gasket relax for a good 4-5 hours (to get the kinks and folds out of it from the packing box) before you do the installation.

A piece of fabric got caught in the seal and it it slightly torn and the seal is warped. A round wire with a spring fell out and the door will not close.


you will have to replace the boot glove as this is what i think you mean,the part were the door fits into,if there is a rip in this rubber boot then water will leak through teribly,the round wire you refer to is the wire that goes around the boot to hold this securely to the washer preventing it from leaking,hope this helps,rgrds,paul

Front Loader Kenmore Mod # 110.44832202 is leaking.


The rubber seal is known as a bellow. If the bellow is torn, more than likely it IS the cause of your leak. Your only course of action is the replace it. Searspartsdirect.com carries replacements. Just type in your model (as you provided) and look under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading for item number 1 (part #8182119). It is not a cheap part, but it will cost you much more to have an appliance repair company install it for you. This is not a difficult repair, and you can accomplish this on your own if you follow these steps:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385210-replacing_door_bellow_kenmore_elite

Some additional parts that normally do not need replaced, but you may consider just in case are the front and back clamps that hold the bellow in place. They are listed under the same heading as items 6 and 14. They don't cost that much and may consider them just in case you need them. In particular, the front clamp, can break or the spring becomes stretched. Inspect these items just to be sure.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.

PS You may also try repairclinic.com for comparative pricing. They also carry the same parts (sometimes for less).
