When I was fixing the door switch for my Kenmore front load washer this spring fell out. Where does it go?


I've seen that door lock assemble before and I normally just replace it. But good job on your end to give it a go. That door lock has a coil that when energized it closes on the door strike. When its de-energized, that springs assist to open the lock. I can say exactly where it fits, but look for a spot between the red part on inside. Good Luck

Balance spring fell off washing machine. Where


Check the Sears parts site for diagrams of all the major components. Replace the model number shown (11020802990) with your model number (found on cabinet when you open the lid)

Look at the diagram for the machine base and you should see the springs and where they connect.

A piece of fabric got caught in the seal and it it slightly torn and the seal is warped. A round wire with a spring fell out and the door will not close.


you will have to replace the boot glove as this is what i think you mean,the part were the door fits into,if there is a rip in this rubber boot then water will leak through teribly,the round wire you refer to is the wire that goes around the boot to hold this securely to the washer preventing it from leaking,hope this helps,rgrds,paul

Metal ring fell off


If you are talking about a small metal hoop with a spring on one end, it is the outer bellow retaining clamp. The bellow is the rubber door seal. The retaining ring inserts into a groove in the rubber seam around the perimeter of the door where it attaches to the door frame. To reinstall, first make sure the door boot is fitting snugly around the door frame opening. Sometimes when the retaining spring comes loose, the rubber may pull away from the door frame. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Make sure the wire spring points towards the bottom. As you work your way around the door to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, you will need to maintain some constant downward pressure while pulling the spring apart in order to snap it back into place with your thumbs. It would be advisable to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this as it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.

If this is not the spring you are talking about, please post back and elaborate a bit more on what the part looks like to see if I can assist you better. (i.e., size, dimension, where you found the part, etc.)

I hope you find this information helpful.

Large rubber door seal came apart


Yes it can be put back on without taking the drum apart. The larger end goes on the drum side. Fit larger end around drum lip make sure it seals all the way around, install spring around seal. Smaller end goes around door opening. Install seal around outter lip and install spring around seal.

Washer door seal is loose


The rubber seal fits over the lip around the door opening. Carefully seat the rubber seal all the way around the door opening first. Then, place the wire hoop in the crease where the rubber seal fits over the lip. Insert the hoop with the spring pointing at the bottom. Starting at the top and work your way around the door opening to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. While holding the hoop in place, stretch the spring apart enough to allow the rest of the hoop to snap into the crease at the bottom of the door opening. You may need a second pair of hands to help you with this. Good luck and I hope this helps you.
