    Rattling in the drain pump (coin probably). occasionally will catch and stop the motor. How does a coin get into the pump? I will know more when I take it apart and see. I hope that is all the problem I find.

    my duet is approx 4 yrs old and tonight the bellows seal tore almost all the way around. after inspecting the load I found a buckle on a pair of pants that may have got caught in the seal. I am going to tackle the job myself. could someone please send me that part of the manual. thanks

    I have the same problem with the seal on my whirlpool. Its torn in several places and resulted in a pool of water on my laundry room floor. Please send me the directions to repair this. I could also use instructions for replacing the door lock assembly. The mechanism tries to lock but the piece that it latches onto has broken off. I must use tape to keep it closed. Thanks for your help. Mail to Jordanjanel@yahoo.com

    I have also purchased a new bellow - can I have the pdf forwarded to me as well: kenmore model number 11042822202



    Also, to keep the mold and smell from coming you are supposed to leave the door slightly open after you are done using the machine so that it will dry out - this works well.

No need to tear washer completely apart. I only had to remove the bottom portion of the washer by unscrewing the 3 torque screws (7mm). Open the washer door and remove the outer spring loaded clamp. Peel old bellow off outer rim of washer and remove detergent inlet spout by sliding off old bellow. Reach in under washer and loosen clamp with flat head screw driver that goes around bellow attached to drum. Simply replace and reverse directions.

SOURCE: How to replace the door bellows seal ?

Unfortunately the service manual will not tell you how to replace the bellows.

Tilt the machine back to create more space between the front on the door and the outer drum. Remove the screws for the kickplate and remove the kickplate for easier access. Open the door and remove the spring clamp holding the bellows to the door opening lip. Push the bellows into the drum to get access to the outside/ rear of the bellows (where it connects to the drum). There you will find another clamp which you loosen/ remove with a socket. Some models have an overfill tube on the top of the bellows (remove it from the bellows). At this point you should be able to completely remove the bellows.

Align the new bellows to the outer tub. Attach and tighten the inner clamp (be careful not to over tighten and periodically check the bellows and clamp placement as you're tightening to make sure it doesn't slip off). Attach the overfill tube (if equipped). Lay the machine back to level and install the front of the bellows to the door opening lip. Re-install the spring clamp by starting at the top and working your way down both sides (may be easier with 2 pairs of hands). Be careful not to overstretch the spring on the clamp.

Test with a quick fill and let it agitate for a few minutes to ensure there are no leaks (be ready to hit cancel and have a few towels just in case it leaks). Re-install the kickplate, make sure machine is still leveled correctly by trying to rock it diagonally from the top. Enjoy clean clothes!

did hte rear clamp come off or just the front spring. assuming its just front spring.carefully reinstall the boot over the front lip assy . easy enough!!here comes the fun!! the spring itself goes to the bottom of the rim.So hang the wire over the top of bellow and feed into the lip evenly as you go down both sides as soon as you get your hands to the 9oclock and 3 oclock positon I then change grip on the spring (use the tips of my fingers palms facing front assy and strech whole pushing down and in. I used to find small spring style clamps would work great for holding the wire in place till it would "pop" into place. a third hand is also very useful to hold in place .

I have a frontloading Kenmore washer purchased in 2003. The door will not close, and there is a wire ring that fell off. Can I fix this myself? It looks simple but I don't want to make the problem worse...


The wire ring you are referring to is called the front bellow clamp. This is the clamp the holds the bellow (door seal) in place. This may be causing the problem you are experiencing with the washer door not closing properly. The following link explains how to access and reinstall a door bellow and clamps:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load

As long as the spring is still intact on the wire hoop and not broken, the clamp can still be used.

After UNPLUGGING the washer, skip down to step 12. This is explains how to reinstall the wire hoop. Just make sure the bellow seal fits snug all the way around the door perimeter. Then, fit the wire hoop into the groove around the seal. It helps if you have a second person hold it in place as you install it.

Overloading the washer is the most common cause of the front bellow clamp coming off. If there are too many articles in the washer, they can become lodged in the door area and pull on the bellow. Always follow your manufacturer's recommendations in the owner's manual for proper loading.

If the door still won't close properly, you may have a broken door latch mechanism. Check the latch pin on the door and the latch on the door facing and make sure they are still mechanically sound and not broken. If the latch needs replace, the following link explains how:

The front door seal is referred to as the "bellow". They do wear out with age and can also become mishapened from repeated pressure from the door being closed. Over time the bellow can stretch or develop rips and tears and begin to leak. If the bellow is leaking, or no longer sealing correctly, the following link explains how to replace one:

NOTE: If you leave the door OPEN between washes this will help prevent constant pressure on the door seal which can stretch it out of shape over time. It is also beneficial to allow the wash tub to air out to prevent mold and mildew from forming. Also DO NOT overload the washer. This can contribute to premature wear of the door bellow and cause rips and tears.

How to replace the door bellows seal ?


this is general for all door seals - all are much the same.
disconnect from mains. take lid off
prise off the clamp holding seal to cabinet - usually a wire circle with a spring - and peel seal off cabinet. fold seal back inside drum
seal is held onto lip of tub with what is really a giant hose clip. undo this and the seal will come away from tub.
on new seal, lubricate the slot in the seal that goes onto the lip of drum with washing up fluid.
starting at top, enter the slot in seal on lip of tub. work your way round in both directions pushing slot onto lip. this is the hard part and it may take more than one attempt.
when seal is on all the way round, replace the clamp.
refix seal to cabinet (easy to do) and refit outer clamp.
test for leaks on rinse as water level is higher
