This is not an easy job as the door boot or baffle is held on with a spring that is difficult to put back on.

Check the big rubber seal around the door for any holes or tears. Had the same problem, my husband had a screw in his pocket that torn a hole in the gasket.

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).

I have an H3 washing machine and the rubber bellow lip that seals the front door from leaking has torn causing water to leak out. Can this bellow be repaired or easily removed and replaced without calling a service repairman.

Torn Door Boot


the way to replace it is you undo seal from front which might be a thin spring clamp behind the lip of the door seal it will be metal undo your lid look down the front of your washer to see the inside of the back of your door seal it will either be another bigger spring clamp or a screw clamp undo door seal will pullout replace backwards to how youve undone m8
