Hi,
I have a Kenmore front-loading washer model 417.42042100 and it appears to be leaking from the top of the drum[?]. I recently replaced both of the shocks/struts on the bottom. Any suggestions on how to resolve this leak?

How do I access all of the bolts? Remove the front panel? From the top? A combination of these?
Yes from the bottom and top the hardest ones are the ones on the sides. There is not a lot of room but just pull the tub over as far as you can and you can get them.
