Question about Washing Machines

I have Kenmore Elite HE3 Front Load Model 110.5862400. The rubber gasket/bellow got wadded up with clothes and popped out along with the clamp. How do I put back together. There is no damage but I don't see where the clamp goes. Thanks

The following link explains the steps required to install a door bellow on a front loader:

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

Inspect the bellow and the front and rear clamps to ensure they are not damaged. If the bellow has any rips or tears, it must be replaced or it will leak.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Overloading the washer can contribute to items getting caught in the bellow and causing premature wear. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for proper loading.

Kenmore elite He3 leaking water into tub


Outstanding diagnosis. You are correct to assume a water inlet problem and, "yes", this can be a common problem. If you live in area that has hard water, or if you use well water, sediment, rust and calcified deposits can clog the small diaphragms inside the valve causing them not to close properly and leak by. You can attempt to clean the valve by removing it and submerging it in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water for about 30 minutes, Sometimes this can dissolve any clogs and restore the valve to full operate. However, if this does not work, you will need to replace the valve.

The following link explains the steps required to replace the valve if you need directions:

I have included web resources to search for replacement parts.


If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Front gasket ripped


Typically the tear comes from something getting caught on the rubber boot or bellows as it is called on this machine. Or if a pen is left in a pocket it can cause a hole.

The bellows for your model is part number 8182119 and typically runs about $80.00

Here is a link to parts break down showing the bellows # 5 on this diagram. It is not hard to replace but you have to be fairly mechanically inclined. It is held on by a spring clamp in front and a large screw clamp to the tub.

I have a 110.47532600 washer and the door gasket is leaking (ripped) Can I buy a replacemnet


You certainly can. Searspartsdirect.com 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:

Rubber boot and spring need put back in


The rubber boot presses on the rim, and the spring clamp fits in the groove behind it. Don't overtighten.

I have a Kenmore elite front load washer. The


The rubber liner (called a "bellow") can be purchased for less than $100. If you wish to install yourself, the following link explains:

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

If the bellow isn't damaged, you can still use the link provided to simply re-install it. If the outer bellow clamp (wire hoop with a spring) is damaged it can also be purchased for about $20 or less. Searspartsdirect.com or appliancepartspros.com offer the best prices with exploded view diagrams of your washer. Just use your model number (located along the door opening) for your search criteria.

So, the choice is yours. Spend about $100 (if required) and repair this yourself. Or, spend $$$ for a new washer. I own a model like yours and I know it wasn't cheap. If the only think wrong with the washer is the door bellow, I think this just may be worth the time and effort to repair.

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