Q:

How to replace part # 131995000 on Kenmore model # 41740052990

A:

Thank you for your question.

I should be able to help you replace the counterweight on your washer. I have included a set of illustrated instruction for a model I think may be similar to yours. (See below) I intend for this to be a rough guide only. The pictures may not look exactly like your unit. Please make sure to unplug the washer first. Then use the images below to help dismantle the washer. I recommend removing the lower removing the lower access panel first. I have had a few models that I was able to replace the lower counter weight without removing the whole front panel. To remove the counter weight loosen the 7/16 head lock nuts. Once they are loose, the weight should come off the front of the tub. I hope this is help.

Please reply below if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

How do I repair a seal that is ripped on my front load washer?

A:

The front seal can be replaced on this model of washer. You can order the replacement seal from the Sears PartsDirect website www.searspartsdirect.com . The part number is 5303937187. This part will be slightly different than the original seal that was likely installed on your washer. The part may come with the installation instructions shown below. If you are completely confident that you can unplug the washer and properly complete these steps to replace the front door seal (bellows), then you can install the new part yourself. Otherwise, I recommend calling a service technician to install the new door seal.

Q:

What parts on my washer model 417.40052990 do I need to replace to fix a tub bearing in my washer?

A:

It is difficult to determine the exact parts that you would need to complete this repair without examining the washer. It is likely that you will need the following parts:

  • Rear tub/shell bearing part 131525500 (substituted for part 131462800)
  • Tub shell - front part 131618600
  • Spin basket part 131618500
  • Door boot bellows kit - 5303937187 (the door boot will likely need to be replaced if it is glued on)
  • Gasket between shell halves part 134146100
  • Drive pulley part 131883400 (the pulley may have damage)
  • Drive belt part 134051000 (the drive belt may have damage)
The total cost of these parts exceeds $600.

The basket has a limited lifetime warranty. The failure would have to be diagnosed by a Sears technician and the technician would have to replace the basket. You would be responsible for the labor for this replacement. I recommend that you consider having a Sears technician examine the washer and give you an estimate for the repair. The repair may cost about the same if you have a Sears technician complete the repair work since the basket (a $200 part) would likely be covered by the limited warranty. NOTE: Even taking this repair route, the cost of the repair would still may exceed $600 since the labor for the Sears technician would likely be about the same as the cost of the spin basket.

With the excessive cost of this repair, you may consider replacing the washer instead of repairing it.

If you still want to repair the washer, I provided a more complete procedure for tearing down the washer and replacing the rear tub bearing in the images below. NOTE: Be sure that you unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. I did not provide the procedure for removing the bellows that you already have in the first answer. This is a long and complex repair that I recommend having a service technician complete. Although we do not have a service manual available that you can access through the web, these procedures should provide you the help that you need if you attempt this repair yourself.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
