Question about LG WM2077CW Laundry XL Front Load Stackable Washer
Have torn apart the machine and gotten main tub bearing off and ordered new seal kit and new main bearing. Does the sealant come with the kit, if not where do I get it, or something comparable? Also How do I get the new bearing on the shaft? (It was not fun getting the old one off) I don't want to damage the new one, but it needs to seat properly and I don't have a special tool for this.
Generally, if you need sealant, you can use any kind of automotive sealant. The best ones are the rubber-based gasket sealants. Be sure the surfaces are clean before applying and use only enough to make a thin bead. About the bearing: If you have no access to a press, you can often use a piece of pipe (either plastic or steel) which is just large enough to slip over the shaft and pound the bearing into place with a mallet. The pipe should contact only the inner (shaft contacting) race. Be sure it is square. You should lightly lubricate the area where the bearing will seat and also the inside lip and bore of the seal. .
