How do I repair the tub gasket on the font of my Kenmore Elite HE4t washer model 11045996400 that is disintegrated and leaking?

Pieces of this gasket break off with each wash. The washer now leaks into the stand. How can this be repaired and what parts are required? As this seems like a fairly significant design flaw, is Sears replacing this part? Thank you.

Also the draining water pump is quite noisy anymore but still seems to work fine.

Thank you for those excellent instructions. Our He4t, other than being about 10 years old now is leaking from the front bellows but it still works. I've had to remount the front left shock assorber that worked its way to disconnect from the tub. Of course the pre-pump filter gets junk in it all the time (It drains a lot of water when I removed the front plug to empty it - I am not sure if that is normal or not). Anyway, I am not sure its a good investment to spend $60 replacing the front bellows on a 10 years old machine or not? Last week the matching HE4 dryer failed and the control panel was bad and that part alone is about $215 +shopping. I just bought a Roper dryer fro $300 to replace it.
