Disassembly Instructions for Kenmore Front load washer

I have a Kenmore Elite H3 that is about 4 years old. I have a recurring problem with a mildew odor. I have tried all the various products and suggestions for getting rid of mildew. After researching the problem, i saw one owner of a similar machine who completely disassembled his washer to clean the gunk and scum buildup from the outside of the tub and to insure there is no clothing stuck in this area.

I am looking for step by step instructions on how to accomplish this teardown, similar to the instructions for replacing the rubber door bellow posted on this site.

    Thanks, but I have tried a lot of the suggested solutions, Affresh, Whirlout, Bleach, Cascade, etc. but would still like to examine the tub to make sure there is nothing there. Clothes still don't smell clean.

    I too am having issue with mildew/mold smell. I especially smell this on my towels. I have sprayed the machine down with bleach as there is mold on the gasket around and in front of the drum. I have done this several times to get rid of the mold. I also have mold problems in the soap dispenser. I always leave the door ajar when not in use.

Before i would disasemble the washer i would try a product called Affresh you can get it at Lowes the item number is 163338 and it costs $ 6.98. I would try thid first and if it works a lot cheaper fix. Also if it works to keep mildue down on the machine, just leave the door adjar between loads and the moisture will dissapear along with the mildue

Have you been leaving the door cracked open after washing a load? If not, mildew will form and smell. If you have, then it would be something else. Respond with any questions.

Kenmore elite front loading wash & dryer-5 yrs old: should i buy?

all kenmore named washer will have 110 as first 3 digits of model #..the he washers are usually good washers..like all front loads they have their quirks ..if you read reviews from other consumers they indicate problems ..most of which are easily remedied by reading owners manuals..mold /mildew usually a bleach clean every few months ..vibration need real solid floor..oversuds use HE detergents only..just a matter of changing mind set from top loads with 25 gals of water each fill to a front load with 5-6 gals each fill..top load with 750-850 rpm spin speed to front load 1000-1200 rpm ..if willing to learn proper use and what to expect they can best investment..just don't let opinions of those unwilling to adapt affect your decision
