Is repair time and parts extensive for this type of repair? Kenmore Front Load Model# 110.45986401

Confirm that it is not the door seal. The door seal can easily be replaced and the parts are available.

You would expect that any water leaking around the door seal would migrate down to the lowest part of the tub leaving the appearance that the leak is where the two half's of the tub are joined by the retaining clips
Replacing the seal between the two tub half's is a different story as compared to the door seal. The tub seal is definitely do-able, but not for the faint of heart!!

If the leak is very very small I might wait until a major overall is require such as the tub seal/bearing. If I chose to wait I would monitor the situation.

Inspect the area at the hub of the pulley looking for streaks of rust.. If there is an indication that water is leaking past the basket tub seal than doing an over hall now may included front door seal, tub seal, bearing and basket seal replacement.

Car transmission leak

May need a new bushing in the pump that supports
the converter hub
The new or rebuilt converters don't have very good tolerance
on the hub,they run out
May have to take converter to a shop that does
their own rebuilds on converters, to have hub checked
for run out.They do much better work then say Daco
or other big names in the converter rebuild arena

Front diff leaking driverside right at cv joint makes a humming noise.diff bearing or seal or possible wheel bearing ?

Sounds like a hub bearing a nd a leaking axle seal to me. The two parts are seperate and have nothing to do with the other so it was just a coincidence that you noticed the leak after you heard the hub bearing. Replace the axle seal to stop the leak and then replace the hub bearing assembly to fix the humm because you have to dissassemble all of that to fix the axle leak anyway.

My maytag washing machine model lat9606age is Washing my clothes but has no spin cycle and leaves the Clothes dripping wet. I've had someone here to look at it and charged me $85 to tell me the hub...

Hi just read your posting.The only time the hub and seal needs to be replaced is when the machine is leaking.Is your machine leaking on the floor.If you have a leak then the water could be leaking water onto the belt making it slip therefore not spinning.I have done a few of these machines and the job will take about 1 to 2 hours.Can you reply back and let me know if your machine is leaking water.Could be all you need is a new belt.Looking forward to your reply.

Making noise when spinning

HI there.This sounds like the centre bearing & seal are worn causing noise & water leak.It's normally called a Hub & Seal Kit.It is quite an involved job & without the right tools it would probably cost somewhere around $300 upwards to have repaired.Very good quality machine & worth while repairing.Try to avoid useing the machine until repaired as you could cause electrical short due to water leaking.

Water leaks from the hub section at the bottom of the tub. It started out as a small leak but has progressed to water running from completely around the hub area. Cannot use the machine due to this...

the hub seal can be replaced but without the specialty tools to do so it would be a major endevour,
this particular machine has a habit of ripping through the tripple lip seal,,,
it is involves a complete breakdown of the machine and removal of the transmission to replace the hub seal,,
maytab took it upon the selves to make the hub wrench a three pin spanner an you will need it for the torque to unscrew the hub nut and you will need the insert to get the seal nut as well

i would hav eto say it might be time to replace the machine
unless you are within the first year,,,of the warrenty

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.
