Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Clothes got tangled with rubber seal inside and ripped it. How do I fix/get a new seal?

Heres my problem:
One night I put some clothes in the washer and then went to watch television and then heard loud banging on the washer door and saw it looked as if it was going to break. So I stop the washer and it takes a while for the door to unlock and when it does I see a shirt twisted and tangled with the rubber seal of the door and its totally torned and worthless.
Is there anyway to fix the seal or replace it? The washer is less than two months old.

    same problem with the whirlpool duet, I have been fortunate enough that is hasn't ripped anything expensive.

    Yeah, We called Sears the other day and they came out today and replaced it. It cost $126 though.

This part is a problem on many front-loaders and never really goes away. The rubber seal is a replaceable part and should be supplied under warranty. There is no way to fix it.You should try very hard to get Sears to pick up the labor cost as well.

I have a Delonghi W130E and last night after about 5 hours of use we heard a loud bang from the machine. I got up and turned the machine off and there was a smaller bang ( noise ) from the machine.


Possible the swinging fins jammed up. Turn it back on and watch the swing. Not very many moving parts. If it's the blower wheel you will know!!

What will cause this washer to tare up cloths


If you are getting ripped or torn clothes then most likely they are getting bunched up underneath the center piece that turns. These usually go back and forth and not all the way around in order to keep from bunching and tangling. It may be getting caught up on a lose bolt or something inside and under the center piece. If you can't figure it out just get a new one and part that one out or sell it at a garage sale. The electrical board and dials alone are worth a hundred bucks to the right buyer.

My washer tangles up my clothes. I swear someone goes downstairs and ties the clothes up. They are always a tangled mess thats hard to pull apart when they are wet! Help!!!


Make sure you are not over filling the washer, when my mother in-law does the laundry, it ends in a tangled mess. However when I wash them, no problem I shake the clothes out before I put them in and I try not to overload the washer.
