Removing drive bell and bearings and washers beneath

Amana washer, model # LW8203W2, attempting to replace necessary sealed bearings and gaskets beneath drive bell to solve "grease running out into tub" issue. With agitator and 7?16 shoulder bolt removed from top of drive bell...drive bell WILL NOT PRY OFF. Pictorial shows claw hammer used as pry. Already broke tempered steel pry bar (9/16") trying to work around the edge with 4 bolt heads used to pry against. Does a service technician have to use a specialized bearing puller to achieve this? Suggestions 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.

does it sound like it doing something??trying to agitate?? can you spin out the water??. if not id look to possible bad lid switch, open adn close the lid a few times, can you herea distinct "clicking" sound just prior to the lid closing??? if not you nave a bad lid switch. acesses by removing the front cover panels, and removing screws holding down main lid, lid then tips back giving you acesss to the switch itself

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

Amana dlw330ra, loud and leaking


HI,

Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:

During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

  • Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


  • The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.


  • Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.


During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

  • Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


  • Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.


  • Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

Automatic washer won't engage in wash cycle or spin cycle. Amana washer Manu model PALW880QAW1


Yes surely that could be one of the reason (due to over tightening) also i request you to carefully check if there is any crack on the body since it is a bit aged. Also try to apply lubricant to all the necessary joints and moving parts.

Thankyou

Loud and leaky


Tub bearing replacement on ANY Amana (Maytag) can be difficult. Even for experienced technicians, it can take 1 to 2 hours as long as there are no surprises (corrosion, stubborn bolt etc). Also, all Maytag washers require specialized tools for removing certain components of the machine.

Leaking/ loud


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.

Amana washer


take the front panel off, two screws at the bottom of the front panel, probably a 5/16 nut driver will work. You will need a flash light. partially fill the washer with water and then turn it to spin.

Look up underneath the tub and see where the water is leaking from. If its coming from above the bearing you need a seal job.

Bearing, seal kit, not cheap, how old is the machine, time to buy a new one?
