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 from retired Englishman in SW France,

If you haven't done already, I would be tempted to look for spares suppliers with the info you already have i.e. JLWM1203! Do you have a manual with anything in it?
Spares Suppliers
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer spares' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number.
If this has assisted you please score accordingly.
Thanks and good luck!

My maytag model no.mav4755aww makes a whinning sound at the beginning of the spin cycle


Hi
Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.Since you hear whining it means that the bearing is damaged and the seals on bearing are gone too so it rotates without lubricant. It might be possible to hear whining while you rotate empty drum manually...
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.Then replacing the bearing is suggested.
Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Neptune MAH5500 Neptune has progressively gotten louder on spin. Very loud noise sound like bearing going. Continues to get worse. Can it be fixed or too expensive to justify?


Hi.

If you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noise is louder when it spins faster, then it is often because of a problem with the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, Check if the drum has excessive play.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

To get a quote on repair call Maytag at the number listed on the owner manual, the machine may still be worth repairing.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

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!

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.
