Kenmore Front Loading Washing Machine # 417.42042100

3 posts in this topic

I have a Kenmore Front Loading washing machine.  It began to make a scraping noise while the tub turned.  In an attempt to fix this problem my mechanic of the house decided to pull the spring on the main seal that connects the door and the tub.  :shock: I don't feel this had anything to do with the sound.  Now I need to get this put back together before he decides to remove more parts.

 

Thanks for any help,

I would imagine you will need a spring tool to reattach this without cutting your fingers off or other body parts. :shock:

I just replaced my entire inner and outer drum because my bearing blew. Of course I had to take the spring off the rubber boot to get the unit out, but all I had to do to reinstall it was to put it on like I would a bike chain. Start at the bottom and work your way around it until it springs in place.
