Instructions usually come with the seal kit. The tricky part is getting the impeller off without damaging it. There is a flat on the other end, not easy to get at. Then it's just a matter of carefully removing the old seal and setting in the new one, cleaning the place where it goes.
The felt seal replacement kit should come with some high temp. epoxy to glue the seal back on. The epoxy is quick drying and can be very messy. The easiest method to install the seal is to remove the drum from the cabinet and place it on its end with the felt seal UP. Remove the old seal and clean the old surface. Apply a thin film of epoxy all the way around the perimeter of drum and spread using an old paint brush or cotton swab (something you will want to throw away when done. Only apply enough to the surface area where to seal is applied. While the glue is still tacky, begin applying the seal to the drum, slowly working your way all the way around the drum. The glue is fast drying, so you will only have a few minutes before it begins to harden. Once the seal is in place, allow the glue to set up for a few minutes and reinstall drum.
The instructions come with the repair kit. If you post back with your MODEL NUMBER, I see if I can provide you with a part number.
It is possible on these engines. If the seal becomes hardened, it can begin to wear into the harmonic balancer. It is best to replace the seal and they also sell a kit that sleeves the harmonic balancer and helps to seal any leaks. let me know if any instructions are needed.
The part number for the mounting stem and seal kit is 6-2095720 it cost about 85 bucks retail. You will also need to buy a special maytag spanner wrench to remove the inner tub. Its NOT an easy job the inner and outer tubs and hoses all need to be removed. The seal kit comes with no instructions. If you had a service company do the job it would be probably around 250 maybe more. We charge 104.95 labor for the job. Good luck _MJ_
The seal replacement on most pumps requires the capacity to separate the motor from the pump and to dismantle the wet end. Upon dismantling, it will become clear as to where the seal components are to be replaced. The spring half is found in the seal plate and must be knocked out and reinstalled with a properly sized driver and the ceramic seat is attached to impeller. Be careful not to damage the polished surfaces of seal. A light coating of a silicone or teflon based lubricant is most helpful ..
Well the tub seal actually has the bearings inside of it. You can purchase one as a seal kit. However, replacing one requires specialty tools. I do not have the part numbers, but I do have a solution. Go to a local appliance parts store with your model and serial number (these should be located on the top rear side of the console) Tell them you need a seal kit for that model / serial number. When they bring it up, there are step by step instructions of how to replace your bearing seal inside the parts box. On the instruction sheet on the first page, it tells you what tools you'll need to do the job including the specialty tools and thier manufactures parts numbers so you can purchase them there or have them ordered.
