Question about Whirlpool AWM8143 Front Load Washer
The FA code has come on. I can get the machine running by removing the styrofoam float so the limit switch is not tripped. The machine will run but there is water weeping from the rear of the drum where the bearing and seal are. What is the difficulty and cost of replacing the seal and probably the bearing.
It is extremly difficult to change the seal and or bearings on a front load washer.
I'm a sears technician, and it is a 2 hour job for two of us to do it, and we know what has to come off and have done it, several times.
The cost of the job, is approx $450 for parts and labour.
