You must ensure the boot is properly seated on the outer tub, There is a groove in the lip of the tub and the boot,make sure grooves are fully mated. Also try getting a new clamp; the screw can back out releasing the tension,also fold the excess clamp that passes through the screw over backwards preventing the clamp from loosening, a few dabs of good super glue helps too and can still be removed (dont use much a few drops in four places is sufficent).

Truck is leaking oil and keeps popping out a seal

Any seal that pops out like that is indicative of a bent shaft. As the shaft turns it oscillates the seal until it wiggles free. There wasn't an internal circlip that goes in after the seal was there? If there was, there would be a narrow machined channel just inside the casting. If that was missing, any movement would allow the seal to come free.

Sorry to hear of the passing of your husband. I was widowed in 1996 and in Feb 2014. Life has to go on and improve.

Hotpoint wmf560 aquarius washing machine

BIG JOB !!! The whole machine has to be stripped down. Ie/ The complete bowl assy has to be removed from the machine, the outer bowl separated from the inner bowl, the main seal removed, and the bearings pressed or knocked out of the housing in the rear of the outer tub. If the bearings have failed , it would be almost certain that the drum shaft has worn and or been damaged. You will need a set of bearings, drum spider shaft assy, and main seal. If its an older machine, it may not be worth it.

How to pull auger drive shaft for Hobart 4346 mixer-grinder?

The oil seal is the resistance you feel. take a soft mallet or hammer with a soft drift and gently but firmly tap the stub shaft and it will drive out the oil seal in the hopper direction.The lower skirt of the tapered bearing is what contacts the seal so go slow.
Worked for me.

Had a problem with my machine and figured out it was the bearings and the shaft. have replaced those and put the machine back together. Is now running better than ever BUT now have I leak!! any help/s

What was the condition of the bearing surface of the shaft where the seals rubs against in. Did you replace the shaft? To replace seals and bearings needs to be done properly. the bearing surface where the neoprene rubs against the shaft must be the correct size and bearing surface must be polished, otherwise the shaft's pitted surface will quickly grind away the neoprene seal's surface which comes in contact with the shaft. To replace the shaft you will need a hydraulic press to press the shaft out, as well as a good quality bearing puller. For these reasons I advise the DIY expert to avoid doing this kind of work. When the seals go, its cheaper to buy a new machine then undergo other problems associated with rebuilding a machine. Never use washing powder which accumulates and can be very abrasive to the seals. Use something like Cold Power, Green Earth or etc as a liquid detergent

I have a 2004 Saturn ION 3 QC, my husband has replaced the struts and cv joints with new seals and now there is a transmission fluid leak on the drivers side- did the seal not seat correctly?

That is a very strong possibility, however I think that your husband would have made certan that the seal was seated propperly. So all you can do is change the seal again. Make sure you inspect the cv shaft where the seal rides for any vissable damage sharp cut marks, dents or scrapes. Also lubricate the in side of the seal with some grease upon installation. Take care when slidding the cv shaft into place so no damage can occure to the seal. Good Luck, From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

Kenmore 80 Series washer leaves brown grease marks

Remove the agitator and check the shaft seal underneath the plastic drive block at the top of the shaft. Move the shaft in different directions to check the condition of the top bearing. If none or very slight, replace the seal at the top of the shaft supporting post. Clean any grease that is outside of the seal when you are done. Be sure to not damage the seal surface on the shaft when removing/replacing the seal and pre-grease the new seal's inner lip before installing.

Does the drum have to be removed to replace both bearings and oil seal on an indesit wash machine type we16

No, remove the drive belt pulley and remove the 8 bolts holding the x shaped cast iron frame with the bearings in, lay the washer face down (ensuring adequate protection to the door and controls) whilst pulling the x shaped frame away from the drum tap the threaded shaft lightly with a rubber faced mallet and the frame will come away complete with bearings and seal. To replace the frame (with new bearings and seal installed) I used a large socket and long bolt to draw the shaft through the new bearings.
