Product Description

Rear Tub Gasket Specifications

If you notice your washing machine is leaking water from the top of the transmission, it might be due to the gasket being damaged or worn down. When replacing your gasket, consider replacing your tub bearings at the same time. The gasket (or seal) is located at the back of the outer tub of your washing machine. To access this part you will need to pull the top off of the appliance by releasing the screws holding it in place. This part is sold individually, is black in color, and measures 3 inches in diameter.

Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
Loud grinding noise, especially during the spin cycle.
First I watched several videos on YouTube, numerous times. When I started to disassemble the washer, I put the parts I removed on the floor in the work area in the order I removed them. I also took a couple of photos of where wiring and hoses went so I would have a reference the next day (I took parts of two days to complete the repair).When I removed fasteners (screws, etc), I labeled them as to what part they went with, making re-assembly easier and faster. The most difficult part was re-installing the wire retainers on the door bellows (make sure you use some liquid dish detergent as lubricant). The results were great, I have a like "new"washer now.

The washer drum sounded like a plane taking off in the mudroom.
Started with some resin paper on the floor, some painter’s tape, and a sharpie to keep track of screws and removed parts (painter’s tape to stick hardware to). Set up iPad on dryer and followed every step by step instruction by pausing the video. The instructions were perfect (but would have liked some more close up shots). Installation of new bearings was exactly as demonstrated and truly appreciated the step by step descriptions to put it all back. Hardest part of the repair was replacing the wire ring on the rubble gasket — only step not displayed. Suggestions for future repair videos: 1) how to organized hardware as removed; 2) more close ups; 3) a video showing the problem at the start followed by a video showing post repair. As a visual person, I have spend the past few days watching the spin cycle wondering if there is a wobble or shudder etc… Similar to the feeling of buying a used car…every clunk or shudder gets you worried. Love that I saved $1000 plus taking on the repair.

Dry bearing noise
I researched the symptom, watched a repair video, ordered the parts: one rear bearing, seal, and gasket. After disassembly found inner bearing to be bad. Ordered inner bearing. Then found the spider or hub shaft corroded, and ordered spider. Finally with all the parts replaced, assembled washer and returned it to service.

Tub bearing and seal failed
Watched a step-by-step video on you tube and ordered parts. I took apart the washer by following the steps in the same video to disassemble. Once apart I took the opportunity to pressure wash the tub and housing then let dry overnight. It takes a minute to get the washer apart then back together, but no part was difficult. No special tools were needed. Before I put the back and top panel on, I hooked a garden hose with a splitter to the supply lines and ran a cycle in the garage just to make sure all connections were nice and tight. No issues. Washer is running like a champ since. As you take the washer apart for this type of repair you basically unhook or remove every single part that could go out. Great opportunity to familiarize yourself with other components for the "next time".

Loud noise on spin cycle, berrings went bad
Methodically, no hurry and it went smooth. Most difficult was removing old bearings and installing the new. Glad I had experience doing this. Would not recommend this as a first time experience replacing bearings. Replaced shocks in the process, glad we did, made a huge difference.

Bad/worn drum bearings
Followed the step-by-step video, you end up taking most of the washer apart. Got the drum out & apart, then ran into a wall with the bearings. Couldn't get them out - acted like the housings were frozen. Took all the pieces of the washer to the curb for garbage pickup.
I never opened the replacement parts and will be returning them.

Washer sounded like the 3:10 to Yuma was rolling through the laundry room when the washer hit the spin cycle.
Google LG washing machine bearing replacement, you'll find a very informative video narrated by a British gentleman who will walk you through the steps. If you are even a slightly handy DIY'er this is an easy job although very time consuming. Take your time with reassembling the machine. I missed a couple of connections and while testing it out I flooded the laundry room. Could have been avoided if I had taken a picture of every individual item I disconnected.

The machine was unbalanced during spin cycle when it started to smoke with about six minutes left in the cycle. It came out of the top between the control panel and the frame. There was more smoke inside the drum. Could you tell me which gasket it was more likely to be? The rear gasket or the door gasket? I did not notice any burn marks on the front gasket.
For model number kenmore 796.4027
PartSelect logo
Hello Ken, thank you for contacting us. The rear tub gasket, part number PS3522855, is more susceptible to burns due to an unbalanced spin than the door gasket. We would also recommend replacing the washer tub bearing, part number PS11711138. Customer service is always available to help you place an order if you are having trouble doing so. Good luck with your repair.

Clothes are getting a black stain after washing, rubber gasket at door is suspected. We clean the gasket within two weeks more stain to clothes. Is there somewhere else the black stain could come from? We suspect mold collecting on the gasket
PartSelect logo
Hello Don, thank you for your question. We have researched your issue and found that the main culprit here is fabric softener. Most fabric softeners are oil-based, and if too much is used, or added too soon or late into the cycle, or hits your clothes without being diluted enough, it will cause oily streaks on your clothes. The second most likely issue is that the mold often grows when water doesn't dry around a faulty seal and it will leave a stain when clothing touches it. Try cleaning it with white vinegar, but if that doesn't fix the problem, you may need to have the entire gasket replaced. Let us know if you have further questions!
