Lwa40aw2 amana washer need to replace main tub bearing and seal ?

I have the whole washing machine apart. Only part I cant seem to get out is the transmission and the agitator. They are driven on the same rod/bearing. I cant figure out how to get the agitator out, as I am guessing there is a snap ring or something holding the rod in. any help much appreciated.

Sounds like the water seal is damaged and the leaking water has damaged the top bearing which is just below the water seal. You will need to have the hub & seal kit replaced.

SOURCE: leaking tub seal, slow spin cycle

It's not worth fixing!
If it's 10 years old or more, better off replacing it with a newer machine which will be much more efficient!

Not worth the money to fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GE washer WNSB9080B only allows me to run "Drain and Spin", no other cycle. It wounds like there is still water inside when I move the drum around.


In top loading washing machines, the agitator is responsible for moving the clothes through the water and detergent and is driven by the output shaft of the transmission. The output shaft is normally splined and the center of the plastic agitator will have a matching spline to ensure a tight fit. Depending on the brand of washing machine, the agitator may be a single piece unit or a two piece dual action agitator. If the single piece agitator or the lower portion of a dual agitator does not oscillate back and forth during the wash cycle, or if the agitator can be turned on the transmission shaft, then the spline may be damaged and the agitator may need to be replaced. Most agitators are held in place with a bolt that threads into the top of the transmission shaft and is located below the softener dispenser or top cover. Some models use a small set screw in the barrel of the agitator just above the base to secure the agitator to the shaft, while some will use a rubber o-ring to provide a tight fit. When the retaining device is removed you should be able to lift the agitator from the shaft.

My whirlpool top loader extra large washing macine


Hi,

Many late model washing machines use a direct-drive system to agitate and spin. They don't use belts or pressure wheels to transfer power and motion from the motor to the transmission. The motor is coupled directly to the transmission. If the motor is running and there is no agitation or spinning of the tub, the culprit is usually a plastic coupling between the motor and transmission or the transmission itself.

My agitator is not working in my washer- it is a kenmore elite. the agitator seems locked up. Everything else works fine.


The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This will require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.
Hope this helps.

Kenmore washer (model # 110 24872300) won't agitate.


Your machine has no belt. It has a direct drive coupling. The direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission must be replaced.

Wouldn't agitate and how do i get it apart


If the agitator does not work, then depending on make, it could be your clutch or transmission or belt tension. Agitators are pushed on type(To remove pull up), but removing it will not solve problem, if agitator is not worn out.

Washing machine won't agitate


it sounds like the transmission is shot. Not knowing the cost of parts if you can replace the transmission yourself then yes it could be worth fixing however if you can't do the job yourself adding cost of parts and labor it may not be worth it

My Kenmore series 70 washer will wash and then the machine stop. If I move it to the rinse cycle it will start agitating again and then it will shut off again. It seems li9ke the spin cycle isn't working


Hello,
Welcome
Either of these three problems may be occurring.







Faulty Direct Drive Coupling (Whirlpool / Kenmore / Roper / Estate)
The Direct Drive (motor) Coupling may be broken. Many Whirlpool/Kenmore brands washing machines utilize a small, relatively inexpensive direct drive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other.

It can wear out over time or fail under overloading conditions. This protects your transmission from excessive loading.

Defective Lid Switch
Check lid switch for proper operation. Check the switch for continuity. If it is found to be open, replace the switch assembly.


All functions operate normally except the machine will not agitate.

The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This wil require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.

Kenmore series 90 washer agitator not working. Replaced lit switch, checked motor coupling. Worked for a while, then started acting up again. Motor is running. Sounds like a chain is being dragged across...


you could have a problem with the transmission/gear box.

it is the main mechanical device that is being driven by the motor to convert the rotating motor to the agitating action of the agitator.

you may need to replace the whole gear box.


tnx 4 using fixya,
