Kemore he3 door gasket

4 posts in this topic

I have a front loading Kenmore HE3 washer, model number 110.42822200. The unit is about 5 years old. The machine began leaking underneath, to the front of the machine. I removed the lower front panel to find light shining through the gasket that surrounds the drum. The culprit, a forgotten beer cap, was still lodged in the gasket.

My questions are, do I follow the step by step procedure posted for the Frigidair? And, should I drag the keg cooler in the laundry room with me? This task looks like a pain in the nether regions. Is this something a woman of average strenth can tackle? I have ordered the boot kit from Sears at the low, low price of about $140.00. I wish I had found this site before paying for it. The same part is about $75.00 at The Repair Clinic.

Have parts, need knowledge. Any input is helpful. Thanks!

Don't use the procedure for Figgidaire-- thank the pot-bellied, buck-toothed, cross-eyed, cleft-lipped Buddha your washer is made by Whirlpool. Here's the help page you need ==> click here.

Ah, wise one. I have taken your knowledge and removed my door, top and front panel. Not anywhere as easy as it sounds. My part should be here tomorrow. I will battle with the obsolete on Monday. Upon success, my family will raise many glasses to you (apple juice and adult beverages) celebrating the clean undies in the home. In appreciation of your wisdom, there will be a contribution made to your effort against sobriety. A Toast!!!.. to quite possibly the best web site I have ever been to! I will be sure to spread the news to my many do it yourself friends.

Mom will fix it!

with your help.

Thanks again.
