You need a special spanner wrench to remove the bearing/seal. you could try ordering from your parts dealer. my advice is to replace the machine, because you'll end up calling a tech and it'll cost you the price of a new machine

Fridge washer GLWS1349AS0, have inner tub out, trunion lifted, not off yet due to slight rust. How do I change spin bearing and tub seal? thanks.


Hello,
To remove the trunion totally reattach the inner tub to it and twist the inner tub,with the tub attached it gives you much more leverage to twist and pull the trunion off. After its off pull the small brass ring with the O seal in it up the transmission shaft and pop the tub seal off. To replace tub bearing remove the bolts on the side of the side of the outer tub off from the tub support and pull tub off of trans. shaft. to remove bearing flip tub upside down and remove the 2 screws from the tabs on bearing and turn tub back right side up and use a screwdriver on the top of bearing and knock it out of outer tub,push new bearing in by hand most of the way,being sure the tabs on bearing is lined up w/notches on tub and use old bearing placed on top of new one and drive it down all the way,reinstall screws into tabs. All the surface rust should be sanded off of trans shaft. Re install outer tub and secure with the bolts into tub support. push main tub seal into flange with normal palm pressure,install new brass ring and MAKE SURE O RING DOESNT POP OUT OF IT ( a little dawn,palmolive joy liquid dishwashing soap around inner part of o ring inside of brass ring will help it slip on easily) I use the old brass ring and press it over new brass ring to assist in o ring not popping out,once new brass ring is inserted ok and oring in place remove and discard old brass ring. Reistall trunion and inner tub ECT ECT ECT

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

Maytag Dependable LAT8824AAE. Main tub seal leaks


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_

I have a 1960s whirlpool washer that is leaking out of the bleach line. I was trying to figure out how to pull the drum out of the barrel.


At this point in time it might be less distructive to go shopping for a new machine. To remove the inner basket you will have to remove the tub cover which will probably not seal after removal due to errosion of the tub. With the tub cover removed, remove the agitator which will uncover the next great feat, the hub nut which requires a special wrench to remove. If you can remove the hub nut after 40 years of corrosive detergent water you may be able to remove the inner basket if it isn't ceased on the drive block.

OUT OF BALANCE ON SPIN CYCLE. model LWA50AW


Does the unit leak water or make a noise while spinning ? Its may be the triple seal bearing kit in the inner tub going out .With the model and serial numbers the warranty can be checked to see if the parts are under warranty.If the seal kit is going bad it takes about 3 or 4 hours to replace , some times it will damage the transmission as well. The unit has 9 springs under the tub to help keep it balanced . by removing the front panel you can run the washer to better see the problem.

GE washer Model WDSR2080D5WW Transmission shaft wobbles


If you can't loosen the nut, you can break it with a hammer and a metal chisel. Tub nut is cheap. Grease on clothes = new transmission time.
By the way, after you remove the inner tub,.... you have to take the entire outer tub assembly out of the washer, flip it upside down, remove the yoke that holds the motor onto the outer tub, and pull the transmission out through the bottom of the outer tub.

Water leaks from main seal


Up front, this project requires specialty tools made by the manufature to remove the seals. You can check with your local parts store or the manufactures web site to purchase them. To remove the outer drum, you have to take the 2 panels off the front and remove the screws underneath that are holding the top of the unit. Lift the top up and lean it back. Next you have to remove the tub ring (the white plastic peice on top of the tub and basket) Next you remove the agitator. Underneath the agitator, there are bolts that hold your inner basket in. Remove these and pull out the basket. Next you have to use specialty Amanna/ Maytag tools to remove the seals that are sitting on top of the center shaft (transmission). Next remove all hoses going to the tub ( some will still have water in them) Lastly there are bolts all of the way around the base of the washer that hold the tub in place.
