How do you adjust clutch?


On your bike it should be right there at the clutch lever. There should be a large round adjuster lock,screwed onto the actual adjuster. If it is too loose,..loosen the large round nut,and screw the small tube portion out (away from lever) untill it leaves a slight amount of play...about 1/8th of and inch, Then re-tighten the large round locknut. If its too tight,..loosen large locknuut,and screw small portion of adjuster in (towards lever) untill the correct slack is in the lever,then tighten the locknut.

Tighten the inner locknut to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm) to seat the bearings.

Spin the rotor and back off the inner locknut 1/4 turn (90 degrees). Retighten the locknut to 16 inch lbs. (1.8 Nm).

Amana LWD70AW I have a replacement transmission and seal kit but cannot remove the old hub from the old trasmission to remove the outer tub. how do I get it off?


Hello,

You need to use a special wrench to remove the nut from the center of the hub to pull it off.
The Amana part number for that spanner wrench is 306P4

perhaps you could usea socket i am dont remember for sure but belive the size would be 1 13/16" size (that size is only available in 3/4" drive (or 1 inch drive) so ya would needa 3/4" drive ratchet,extension and the socket)


The spanner wrench could be ordered at your local appliance parts store or online at;

My Amana NAV2330AWW (S/N12279742EP) has been in service for six years. It has begun making a loud squealing, friction-like noise at the spin cycle. I removed the agitator assembly after being told it...


Hello,

Firstly i want to apoligize for the quesionable advice,some on here or elsewhere on the net fixed their washer and suddenly their are experts!!
Now Then as you know your washer is made by Amana/Speed Queen and has no agitator dogs(a quick search of parts breakdown will show anybody that) it also has no spin tube (aka basket drive),the brake pads which it does have would squeal only when washer stops spinning if they were bad just like squalling brakes on or vehicle the are quite till applied if bad,what the most likely cause of the noise is going to be the tub bearing,it is on the bottom of the outer tub. The inner and outer tub must be removed,it is advisable if replacing the tub bearing that you also replace the tub seal since it may not seal correctly once taken apart and leak badly.The hub taht connect inner tub to transmission must be removed so ya can remove the outer tub it requires a special wrench which is not to expensive but nothing else will work. IF ya want to go ahead and repair this the part numbers are;
TUB BEARING 40004201P
TUB SEAL 35-5655-1
SPANNER WRENCH 306P4

PROCESS TO REPLACE BEARING;
unplug power
remove front panels
remove screws holding top to cabinet
remove plastic tub cover by down slightly and lift tabs
remove agitator
remove bolts from hub under agitator and remove inner tub
use that spanner wrench and a hammer on nut on hub and remove nut in counterclockwise direction by hitting wrench w/hammer
lift off hub
remove rubber tub seal
remove all springs from outer tub by locking on vise grips and pull springs off
remove bolts holding outer tub to the to tub support
pull off outer tub and set down so bottom is facing up
remove old bearing and install new old
reassamble in reverse order

I've changed rotors before but never on a 4 wheel drive. Could you tell me how to on a 1989 ford ranger?


Brake Rotor (Disc) - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Loosen the wheel lug nuts.
  2. Jack up the front of the vehicle and support on jackstands.
  3. Remove the wheel and tire.
  4. Remove the brake caliper assembly as described earlier in this section, but do not disconnect the brake hose.
  5. Suspend the caliper assembly by a piece of wire. Do not allow it to hang by the brake hose.
  6. Follow the procedure given under wheel bearing removal in Suspension and Steering for models with manual and automatic locking hubs (lines down).
New rotor assemblies come protected with an anti-rust coating which should be removed with denatured alcohol or degreaser. New hubs must be packed with EP wheel bearing grease.
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

How do we remove the tub seal assembly on a mat12cs commercial Maytag?


This is a not a job for the back yard mechanic. There are many things that need to be done carefully. There are 3 letters missing from your model number also... However the procedure is pretty much the same for all models.

NOTE you will need a special tool to remove the stem seal. Unless you have the special tool in hand don't even bother starting the job. Tell any appliance part center you need the tool for removing an Old style Maytag tub nut and stem seal.

1. Remove the front panel
2. Remove the cabinet top / lid by removing the 2 screws in the top front corner of the cabinet. and rotate the top up 90 deg. Be careful of the lid that will swing freely.
3. Disconnect the pump inlet hose from the bottom of the tub.
4. Disconnect the water injector hose from the tub cover.
5. Remove the tub cover
6. Locate the only hex head screw in the side of the agitator and remove it.
7. Lift out the agitator
8. Using the special tool you should have in hand by now.... Remove the wash tub nut and stainless steel washer under the tub nut.
9. NOTE the distance of the inner tub from the outer tub and then lift out the wash tub
10. Next is the stem seal. You first have to remove the allen head lock screw in one of the 4 faces of the tub nut. Then again using that same special tool remove the upper part of stem seal. Be careful when lifting it as you can actually damage the grease seal in the very top of the tub seal upper portion. Once the metal upper part of the tub stem seal assy is removed... there another NOTE of caution...
11. The actual tub seal has a carbon face on the top of it and if you crack the carbon seal it your machine will leak all of the time there is water in the unit.
grab the tub seal as the very base of the seal and gently rotate and lift it off the inner tub sealing surface.
12. Install the new stem seal.... by again gripping it on the bottom only and gently rotate and push it down into place until it seats level.

Reassemble in reverse order of disassembly but make sure you INSTALL the allen lock screw into the stem seal nut face. If you don't the stem seal will come loose and your unit will leak again. Final note is during re-assembly make sure the wash tub is centered.... rotate the tub once you tighten the tub nut and make sure it is not to elliptical if you don't get it right... the machine will gyrate with use in the spin cycle.

Have a tub main bearing needing replaced on Amana LWA40AW2


Generally, if you need sealant, you can use any kind of automotive sealant. The best ones are the rubber-based gasket sealants. Be sure the surfaces are clean before applying and use only enough to make a thin bead. About the bearing: If you have no access to a press, you can often use a piece of pipe (either plastic or steel) which is just large enough to slip over the shaft and pound the bearing into place with a mallet. The pipe should contact only the inner (shaft contacting) race. Be sure it is square. You should lightly lubricate the area where the bearing will seat and also the inside lip and bore of the seal. .

Washing machine problem...


A good marine type silicone sealant (like what you might use on boats) might buy you some time. However, with the vibration of the machine and the torque applied to the tub when the transmission and drive motor engage to spin will only make the crack worse over time. Sorry, but you might want to think about replacing the tub.
