Bad Drum bearing need part number

I do not have a manual ,need to know what the part number would be for this bearing I found part number 131525500 on searspartsdirect.com. It is the "Shell, Outer Tub, Rear, with Bearing". If I replace this piece, that should take care of the bearing. But what other parts should I look at needing to replace?

    Thanks for the quick response! I went to the parts site for sears and printed the exploded parts diagram and list. My question is, when I open up the machine, what (in addition to the outer tub with bearing) should I be checking? I read thru this board and found a reference to a dampening shock. Someone else said to look at the inner drum and shaft as well? When the machine tries to spin it bangs the tub around - found some metal shavings in clothing if that gives any indication?

Sounds pretty awful. I have the 417.43142200 - only 3 1/2 years old!!

Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub.....and also check for bushes ans sealer b/w the outer and inner tub..



Good luck..

Hi there,

Actually, if you go to sears.com, there should be a link to their repair site. On the repair site, you should be able to find not only the user's/installation manual for it, but you should also, somewhere in the available literature, be able to locate an exploded view of your unit along with an itemized parts list. This should show you anything else that you might need and tell you what the proper name for each part is. Hope this proves to be helpful. Have a wonderful evening!

James

I have an LG Tromm front load washer. During the spin cycle it sounds like a plane is taking off and now I smell burning. Could anyone tell me what is happening. and what I need to replace in it. ...


It's not the gasket but the bearings at the back of the drum which are going. These can be replaced in some machines where you can split the drum but I'm not sure about LG. You can buy bearing kits by quoting the model number and serial or product number usually found on the inside of the door. This can be a laborious task and depending on how bad the bearings are in the machine an almost impossible task. My advice it's a new machine or check the manufacturers parts guarantee, you might be covered for parts only.
Hope this helps

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. If you can provide me with a mmake and model number I can tell you exactly what parts to order and change including the source to correct the problem you describe.

These parts are in most cases are:
1. The drum bearing ring: (not always bad)

2. The front drum (Replace)seal: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3131525

3. The rear drum seal: (replace) http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/WHIRLPOOL-Rear-drum-felt-seal-with-adhesive--red-thread--item-number-AP3094149.aspx

4. Roller kit and belt: (replace) http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/WHIRLPOOL-Dryer-repair-kit--29-inch-large-capacity-models--item-number-AP3131942.aspx

These are the most common failures. I would recommend ordering and replacing all parts 2 - 4. Doing this will ensure your dryer will last for a long time trouble free. (tumbling)

How do i oil the belts? The dryer squeaks every time its turned on?


You don't oil the belts on a dryer. This will cause the belt to slip on the motor shaft and/or drum. Oil permiated into the metal of the dryer drum can ruin it causing any replacement belt to slip as well.

If the dryer is squealing, you probably need to lubricate the idler pulley wheel at the axle point (also known as a tension pulley). If this is a GE model they usually have drum slides and a drum bearing that support the front of the dryer drum as well. When they wear down, they begin to make noise. The drum slides are made of teflon and not only help support the drum, but ensures it turns smoothy. You may need to replace both the drum slides and the drum bearing.

If the model number is correct, the part numbers are as follows:

Drum Bearing - WE3M26
Drum Slide - WE1M481 (Blue), WE1M333 (White)

Replacement parts (if required) can be found at the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average cost of these components varies, so shop and compare. The first three websites I listed have helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different from the one you listed this question under, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Something rolling inside the Drum


The rear half of the outer tub, with bearing is part # 131525500 and it looks like the back "spider" shaft is not available as a separate part from the inner drum. The "spider" shaft is most likely worn or damaged and in need of replacement also.
131618500
Then, there's that strut
134564200
Now, two pain in the back side hours of your labor and you've got your washer back, at more than what a new one would cost! Junk it and get a new larger capacity front loader.
Please don't rate this, as anything but the top rating will lower my score. I'm just giving you my honest opinion, that your machine is not economical to repair. I've owned a LG front loader for over 6 years and think they are the best, but there are other good front loaders out there also.

Bearing on front load washing machine needs replacing (Frigidaire


You will need to replace the tub rear shell/bearing assembly (part # 131525500).
To do this, practically the whole machine will need to come apart.
To remove the drive pulley, remove rear cabinet panel. Remove the pulley screw and pull back on the pulley (you may need to giggle it as you pull to remove it).
For the shock pins, grab the open end with a pair of vise-grips. On the "pointy" side of the pin press the tab in with your finger (if you can't push the tab in slide a 9/16" socket onto it) and pull the pin out with the vise-grips (twist back and forth slightly as you pull).

A qualified tech could replace the rear shell/bearing in about 1.5 - 2 hrs. I can certainly give you more help if you need it, let me know.
Good luck!

Rear drum bearing


When it is like that you usually need to replace the drum bearing.

If the tub recently started making a lot of noise, and you can feel that the bearing had too much play when spinning by hand, that means that the drum bearing needed to be replaced.

You can find drawings and the schematics entering model number here.

Bad Drum bearing need part number


Im sorry, but the rear bearings (unless its changed just recently) is a non servicable part, you will have to replace the entire rear tub section. Also, most of the time, you end up having to change the inner tub as well, the shaft is usually wore out as well.

Squeaking


The squeaking is usually attributed to any (or all) of the following:

The drum support rollers
The rear drum seal
The front drum ring bearing
The front drum seal and bearing assembly
The Idler Pulley

Now before you throw yours hands in the air in a panic, these parts sound more technical than they are. All the bearings and seals for the drum are either felt or plastic, the drum rollers support the drum at the rear bulkhead, and the idler pulley is what the drive belt rides on. Searspartsdirect.com offers excellent illustrations to show you where these parts are located. Just type in your complete model number and there will be a part listing with part numbers on the next page. If the model number you posted this under is correct the parts can be found under the following headings:

"Bulkhead Parts"
Drum Support Rollers (item 44) Part #349241T (pkg. of two)
Rear Drum Seal (item 66) Part #279857
Front Drum Ring Bearing (item 62) Part #279441

"Cabinet Parts"
Drum Seal and Bearing Assy. (item 38) Part #3406129
Idler Pulley (item 53) Part #691366

I list all these parts as a convenience in case you need to order any of them, and to help illustrate where these parts are located. You may not need ANY of them.

The drum support rollers require lubrication at the point where the roller meets the shaft with a light turbine oil. This should be done periodically to keep them rolling smooth. DO NOT get any oil on the rubber rollers or it may cause the drum to slip. You should also remove any build of lint before lubricating.

The drum seals can become brittle with age and start making noise as the drum rotates. This is particularly true with the rear drum seal. It will become discolored with age and turn brown in many cases. Inspect the front and rear seals of the drum for excessive wear. If parts of the seal begin to protrude into the interior part of the drum, this is a good sign that the seal is bad. The seals cannot be lubricated and will require replacement.

The idler pulley is a small plastic wheel on a shaft that the drive belt rides on. Lubricating the idler pulley wheel in the same manner as the drum roller supports is also required from time to time. DO NOT get any oil on the drive belt.

I know this seems like a lot, but a simple matter of cleaning and lubricating may be all that you need. If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
