With only a limited amount of information, I would guess your door seal may be worn....but how can you check it? Take a reqular piece of paper (8.5x11) and cut a strip 1x11. Open the door and while holding onto the paper strip, put the strip in the TOP of the door and shut it to see how the seal 'feels' when you try to pull the paper out. It should be very hard, if not impossible to pull the strip of paper out. Now, do the same thing with the bottom of the door. Does it appear to be much easier? Without knowing the age of the machine, I might question the door seal. You might also want to check to see if the door might not be bent just a bit. Do this by placeing a long level vertically along the front facing with the door open, then check the door for level. It may be as simple as bending the top of the door out while you bend the lower part in.

Good Luck

If the unit leaks during use with a constant drip from the 6 o'clock location between the seal and the glass on the door the solution is to change tha door seal. it is quite difficult to do I would recommend you call a local service company.

Your rear bearing is bad. Check warranty to see if rear tub is still covered.

Bosch frontloader will not spin or agitate


You can check the following things in your washer:

1. Is the washer door or lid closed?
a. If yes, does it filled with water?
b. if no: Please contact the manufacturer to replace the door latch.
And if it is not filling properly then there is a water supply issues like: hot or cold faucets closed or not open completely, hot and cold hoses reversed, kinked or pinched fill hoses, plugged inlet screens or insufficient water pressure

My Kenmore frontload HE washer is control lock mode. Just got a new job after being laid off for 2 years. Help I have no money.


if the door is still locked and there is water in there use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove the water once the water is removed then the lock should release and the door open if this works then you may need to check the drain pump and remove all the hoses to the pump and look for any obstructions that may be blocking or resticting the pump.

Water in the bleach reservoir after each use


The dispenser door is caked with old soap and not closing all the way. (most likely)

Kenmore frontload washer wont start no beep or error code


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Kenmore frontload washer won't unlock


To manually unlock the door lock system:

1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about quarter inch or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened


Or pull out your dispenser tray, along the rear edge you will find a cord, pull this like above. Depends on your model.
