    Thanks. I really appreciate your response. From another post I did put some graphite grease on the shaft. I don't suppose this'll be a problem? It's back together and seems to be working as it used to.

    I have a hotpoint dryer (nbxr453ev1ww) and it sounds like the bearings need greased. I have not had the dryer apart yet to see if they need to be replaced, but wanted to find out what type of grease they are packed in. Are they sealed bearings? Is it a high-temp grease like you might use for a car?

    Also, I've had this dryer apart before and it seemed like it was easier to get inside to fix things. Does anybody have an answer for the quickest way to access the interior of the dryer? Thanks in advance for your help.

Spa pump k55mygrd-8367


Most common and likely situation with this,... mechanical pump shaft seal has failed. This allowed water to enter into the electrical motor and lubrication from the front bearing had been washed away. The purpose of the shaft seal is to keep the water OUT of the motor!
Now as motor spins, bearings with less lubrication gets a lot hotter!
And... When metal gets hot, it gets soft! What was once perfectly round and lubricated, is now getting oblong or square and not lubricated. Square bearings don't spin well and are not as quiet as round bearings! Hence your loud noise. Oil on the shaft will do nothing. You either need to replace both bearings, front and back, and absolutely replace the shaft seal or, replace the motor and the shaft seal.

How do you change the rear wheel bearings on a 2004 chevy express 1500 van?


Axle Shaft Bearing & Seal Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the axle shaft.
  3. If replacing only the seal, remove the seal using a suitable seal removal tool.
  4. If replacing the seal and bearing on the 8.6 inch axle, install the slide hammer and adapter behind the bearing and pull out the bearing and seal together.
  5. If replacing the rear axle shaft seal and the bearing on the 9.75 inch axle, install the J 29712 or equivalent bearing puller into the axle housing behind the axle bearing.
  6. Remove the axle shaft seal and the bearing by tightening the nut on the J 29712 bearing puller.
Use a slide hammer, bearing puller and adapter to remove the old axle bearing 88457g81.gif

To Install:

I have a STA RITE 1 hp above ground pump that is used for my lawn irrigation system. It is about 3 years old. It seems to be making more "noise" as it runs than it has before... Q. Is there a way to...


Hi Tom, The reason your pump is getting noisy is because the motor bearings are worn out. This can also be caused if the shaft seal between the motor and the wet end is leaking. The bearings can't be lubricated because they are sealed. The best solution is to have the bearings replaced as well as a complete seal kit for the wet end.

How do i take it apart to lubricate


There is nothing to lubricate since the bearing are sealed. Grease and oil travels and will getr inside the drum is most cases. If you do decide to repack the bearings with grease a strong saftey pin is needed to pop out the grease seals on the bearings. If the belt tensioners pulley bearing squeaks, replace that pulley along with the belt.
The top and front panels will have to be removed to gain access to the internal parts. The drum will pull directly out when the panels are removed as well
Disconnect the electric before tearing down

Had a service call 7 months ago on 16 year old Maytag Stack w/d to lubricate drum roller that was squeaking. Squeak has returned. Any pointers on lubricating it myself, or is it worth replacing the drum...


Lubricating the bearings is usually only a temporary "quike fix".

Replace the bearings,and lubricate the bearing shafts with a lithium grease.

I need a manual or somebody to tell me how to remove the back of my hotpoint dryer. Model DLL2650BGLWH. It sqeeks really bad and I was told it's prbably a shaft or bearing. Also, can I just try to...


Disconnect power to dryer.
Take screws out above door, allowing dryer top to swing up and back.
Remove screw near top from side panel into front panel, allowing front panel to be removed and set to the side.
Some models have a very small access panel at the very center of the drum on back, which may hide an " E " clip on the drum shaft, which would have to be removed, all other dryers no longer use them. Lift dryer drum up slightly and pull it forward a couple inches. (you do not need to remove the belt) Remove all the loose washers / sleaves on the back shaft of the drum and install a new WE3X75 rear drum bearing, then re-install drum. (no need to put the E clip back on.)
Check the drum slides on the bottom front side of the drum. Most times, if the rear bearing is in need of replacement, so are the front drum slides, especially the one on the left (blower / motor) side.
Just trying to lubricate it will not solve your problem.

Very loud noise every time it starts spinning


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

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.
