Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
The gasket between the drum and the machine has a rip in it. Which cause water to run out on the floor. I am tepmted to fix this myself however I do not know what caused this. The tech is coming out tomorrow to "diagnose the problem even though I already told them the problem. what could have caused this and how much should I expect to pay to have this fixed. Can I do it myself???
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.
