If you are referring to the front bellow clamp (wire hoop with small spring), the following link explains the steps required to install the bellow and both clamps:

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

Refer to step 12 where it explains how to reinsert the front bellow clamp after ensuring the rubber bellow is seated properly all the way around the perimeter of the door opening. If you need further assistance please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Removing outerseal on my frigidaire front load w as sher


Are you asking about the rubber door boot/seal??? The outer edge is held on by a spring loaded wire that runs around the door opening. You can see it if you lift the outer edge of the boot close to the painted cabinet front. The inner edge of the boot is help on by a very big hose type clamp. Some models you can get to it through the opening after you remove the outer wire. Some models need the washer top removed to get to the clamp screw.

Washer door leaks


The front baffle/boot will likely need replaced. You can do this yourself but it takes some patience. You can order the part, list model #, at 888-321-3107. The procedure is as follows:'
1. Tilt washer, back against wall.
2. Remove wire spring with needle nose plyers. The spring is located at outside perimeter, under lip, of baffle.
3. Peel baffle from front panel.
4. Remove clamp from the outer tub lip. Look closely and you should find a large hose clamp. Use small socket wrench to loosen.
5. Install in reverse order. Be careful and take your time.

My Kenmore Elite washer is leaking when it fills with water


I followed the instructions on how to replace the boot from your website. When i got in there i realized that the metal clamp holding the boot secure to the outer drum area had come lose...so i just reattached the boot around the outer edge of the drum and tightened the metal clamp and put in all back together again. I have NO LEAKS! and i didnt even have to replace any parts!!

Replacing the drum baffle in kenmore elite he3t front loading washers


The baffle basket, I ordered from sears for my Kenmore Elite he3t washer was a "new" design but the screw holes lined up. My baffle basket did not come with the screw either. I took out the screw from an existing baffle basket and found something close. Test it in the baffle basket before you try to install it. Be careful not to drop the screw or bit.

To replace the baffle basket. Remove top of washer using a screwdriver with a T20 torque bit. There are three screws at the rear. The top slides back about an inch and lift up. Place aside. Then you will see a hose going into the drum. Ignore the clamp, just squeeze the end going into the drum and work it out. Now you need to insert the baffle basket in the drum through the front door. It is easiest to rotate the drum so you are inserting it on the bottom. It slides in with the small end toward you and you must pull it forward. Hold the drum for leverage. Now rotate the drum so the new baffle is on top. You need to line up the screw hole and screw in a small screw. Replace the hose and top of washer.

Good Luck...

Front Door Seal/Baffle Replacement


I need to replace a baffle from inside my Elite HE3T. Do you have directions? Only 1 came off but when I order the new one apparently it only comes in 3, so show I replace the other 2 as well? (if I can figure out how)

Of course the part did not come with any! And Sears customer service is of no help and the technical people have not responded to me.
Thanks,

Kenmore 40922 front load


This advice from Sears to replace baffles only applies to dryers. The baffles for the washer are installed from inside the basket. If you can't locate mounting from inside the basket, then the entire basket/tub will have to be removed and disassembled.(big job)... But I am pretty sure they mount from inside. Washer or dryer, there are three screws in the rear along the top. Remove screws, slide top toward rear and lift off.

Tub seal has rip therefore washer is leaking.


Its pretty comlicated requires dissasembly of the front of the washer. A good tech can do in 1 hour. You may want to pay for it rather than spending all day and possibly damaging something. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Distroyed drumb


if it is only the rubber gasket and the spring loaded clamp that holds it in place it is worth repairing. if the tub, inner or outer, is damaged it is probably time to replace it
