Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hello, My Amana model LW4303W washing machine is leaking. The leak appears to be coming from the top seal around the pump shaft, below the electric motor. Can you guide me to a parts manual for this, so I can get the right part? Is it a custom seal, or a standard O-ring? Or a unique O-ring :->? The Amana site says no parts or service manual available. Thanks very much for your help. Jason

    Hi Ginko,


    Thanks for the parts list. On this unit, the shaft seal is part of the pump module, and according to the parts list it's not available separately. I got the pump off and verified the leak is from the shaft seal by filling the pump with water, so I'll order a new pump directly.


    Best regards,
    Jason

    Hi Ginko,

    Thanks for the parts list. On this unit, the shaft seal is part of the pump, according to the parts list it's not available separately. I verified that the leak is from the shaft seal by filling the pump up with water, so I'll order a new pump directly.

The water hoses at the bottom of the pump are usually held by regular O-rings, the seal between pump and motor is part of the motor mount bracket, below the complete assembly:

Speed Queen washing machine pump, part no 27041,


The impeller shaft has a water seal. This seal wares out after a period of time. The hole allows water leaking through the seal to escape. There is no known repair to this problem except replacing with a new pump. Trying to block up the hole is a waste of time.

Maytag Washer Model LAT9416AAE - Top tub seal is leaking or where the tub and the shaft meet is leaking. What would the cost be for parts and repair (service fees, labor, etc.)?


Hello,
The usual charge when i have repaired that is around $375
in addation to the seal a tub bearing would be required since the seal has leaked it very likely has rusted the bearing. To replace those both the inner and outer tub have to come apart,the breakdown would be
Parts--$150
Service Fee $75
Labor $100

labor and service fees vary from company to company and that is probably low,yet it is a great washer and may be well worth investing in to repair

Leaking water from bottom


Hello there:
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-

Amana Top Load Washer model# LW3502W Washer leaks water somewhere between wash & rinse cycle best I can tell...drain hose checks out fine. At beginning of wash cycle the first minute or two of agitation...


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.
