    Yes it is quite a job pulled it apart yesterday from the front,now I know why they charge like wounded bulls.They have not changed one of the bearings when they repaired it last time as it is all rusted and the bearing is dry as and gritty.Have ordered new bearings and will replace them today and put it back together. Thank You for you time.

    I have the same issue with my LG WD-1274fhb front loader washing machine however my bearing issue has been caused by the drum moving around too much under load. It has had this problem since new and after having a service tech fit a larger set of weights still no joy. Anything over 600rpm causes the machine to walk around on the floor even after spending time to ensure that it is completely level. Have pulled the machine apart to check the springs/shocks holding the drum in place and they look fine but appear to be too soft. I have looked online but cannot find a service manual to fix or troubleshoot the issue. Somebody help!

    Everything comes apart from the front. It's quite a job for someone who doesn't know what they are doing. It takes a special wrench to pull it apart. I wouldn't suggest doing it yourself. If you still want to try checking with an appliance parts store and getting a washer repair manual.

  • Kelly Sullivan Jan 18, 2008

    Did they say they changed one? If so go back and let them know you are aware of it. Make sure when you put it back together you use a good red appliance grease on the bearings before you put it back together. Good luck.

Ok i replaced the cv joints on my 98 geo prizm now when you put it in gear it just makes a screaming noise. What could this be. It will change gears but wont go.


Okay...

My source only goes up to 1997...

But I have every confidence a CV joint can only scream if the ball bearings are completely GONE.

Was this a NEW... or used application?

Go get the new CV box and look into the bottom...
Are there ball bearings rolling around...???

Did you pack grease into the new CV joints or put them on
as they came out of the box... wrapper...

AT this point... I'd suggest you get the old CV and roll it in your hands... push it back & forth... you can get the bearings in/out by rolling the center inside the ring and see how it works.

A slot for every bearing & a bearing for every slot...

Go up on-line.

You will see the axles (half shafts (?) are sold as complete units...

In my opinion VERY CHEAPLY... Do it again...check for grease & bearings.

Hope this helps.

I have a remanufactured lincoln impinger 1000 gas conveyor pizza oven which I believe was converted to a fast bake 1450 model and the main fan motor on the back is screaming.


If the main fan motor is screaming in your lincoln impinger oven, actually that means the motor is faulty. more so the bearing in the motor are worn out and should be replaced, its easier to replace the motor itself but the motor is very expensive. To save money you can actually replace the bearings your self by opening the back cover in which the motor is mounted, then unmount the motor and disassemble it so you can take out the bearings. take the bearings as a sample to a bearing store so that you can get the size correct.
make sure you get bearings that can handle high temperatures and not those with plastic seals ment for wet or water places.

Cam bearings


Remove the rocker cover to ascertain the damage done . It may not be bearings but seized valve in the head. To fix cam bearings properly it may necessitate the head removal and machining both the head surface and then the bearings should be line bored to realign the cam shaft correctly. Some Nissan products have the cam bearing housings adjustable with shims to align the holes correctly and if not done will break the cam shaft. IT may be the cam shaft is broken and jammed . What ever it will not be just a case of putting in new bearings until you have the head and bearing alignment checked out by an engineering shop.

Machine is Quivering while excersisng


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Use a flat screwdriver to unseat the tabs that hold the front top cover in place. This will expose the flywheel and pedal arm connection points. Rotate the flywheel by hand and determine whether lubrication will accomplish the repairs. If the bearings are exposed, use a grease gun with an extension nozzle and lubricate both bearings with lithium grease. If the bearings are damaged or sealed, proceed to the next step.

2

Remove the front and side covers on the main frame. Hold the flywheel with one hand and use a box wrench to loosen the bolts that secure the pedal arms at each side of the flywheel. Pull the arms away from the flywheel and remove the bearings from each side.

3

Test the bearings as before. Lubricate exposed bearings with lithium grease and reinstall them. Sealed bearings must be replaced. Reattach the pedal arms to the flywheel. Replace the main frame covers and front top cover to complete the repairs.
Lubrication

1

Detach the ends of the pedals from the crank axles. Spread a layer of machine grease over the crank axles, then reattach the ends of the pedals.

2

Remove the bolts connecting the pedals to the swing arms. Detach the pedals from the arms, then spread a layer of machine grease over the axles on the swing arms. On some models, the bolts may also serve as the axles. Reattach the pedals to the arms.

3

Remove the bolts connecting the swing arms to the elliptical's upright. Detach the swing arms from the upright, then spread a layer of machine grease over the axles on the upright. Reattach the arms to the upright.
Drive Belt

1

Remove the screws or bolts securing the ends of the pedals to the crank axles. Slide the ends of the pedals off the axles. Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right disc shields to the base unit. Pull or pry the disc shields off the base unit and set them aside.

2

Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right side shields to the base unit. Detach the side shields and set them aside. Examine the interior of the base unit and locate the drive belt.

3

Pull the drive belt free of the crank pulley, flywheel and any other pulleys. Discard the old drive belt and install a new belt in its place. Turn the crank axles by hand to confirm that the belt will turn smoothly when the device is in use.

Have 54 inch Craftsman mower deck that I am rebuilding - how do I remove the spindle from the Mandrel housing? Appears to be stuck but will spin.


I've been down this road before and I'd suggest if you really need them out, use a press. I do believe they are pressed in and trying to beat them out without damaging something isn't going to be easy.
I didn't have access to a press and couldn't get mine free. The mandrels on mine were all good except it sounded like they needed grease and considering it had been sitting outside for a few years when I revived the old mower I'm sure it would have been a matter of time before I burnt a bearing. So, and I'm not saying this is the best way, but I drilled a 1/16" hole throw the bearing housing once I got the blades off the bottom of the shaft and the pulleys off the top. I discovered the top bearings have a removable shield that protects the bearings and I was able to pack grease here and put the cover back on. I drilled through the bottom of the mandrel shaft and it took about 1/4" to reach the bearings. I then took a basketball needle and cut the needle off to about a 1/4" deep to insert into the hole I just drilled. It worked, I was about to pump grease in until it came out around the bearing rails and then gave it a spin and added more. I cleaned up around the hole then added silicone to seal the hole. I think it will get me another few years this way and I know the bearings are covered in fresh grease now. We'll see.

Have to change bearing on front load washer


This link should get you on your way. http://www.applianceblog.com/washers/RearBearingV6.pdf
In addition I should mention that the original bearings are a shielded bearing (Z). Follow the link and use 6306-2RS and 6307-2RS bearings which are sealed. I was able to match up SKF 562737 seal which is now a CR 15939 seal I believe. It is completely rubber coated. Between the sealed bearings and new seal you should be good to go.

How to change a bearing on front loader washing machine?


To change the bearing(s) and/or seal on a Simpson 45S100C 5.5kg Front loading washing machine:
----------------------------
1) Disconnect from the power, water etc. and find your self some space;
2) Remove the lid (two screws at back of machine) and the back panel. I also took off the concrete weight on top to give myself some more room and less weight to move;
3) Remove the fan belt;
4) Unscrew the bolt on the end of the drive shaft. This holds the pulley in place;
5) The pulley is pushed on to a V-bushing. It may be very hard to get off. I found the easiest way was to put a large screwdriver behind the pulley hub and the 'spider' bracket behind. Then use leverage to pop it off. The V-bushing should then slide off the shaft;
6) Remove the three bolts that hold the ends of the spider to the drum. I found these very hard to get moving and they are also awkwardly placed. Use a socket set and you may need a bit of rust-remover/degreaser (WD-40 in Australia);
7) Remove the three bolts holding the central part of the spider to the drum;
8) Tap the end of the drive shaft with a hammer while pulling on the spider. The whole spider and the bearings should slide off the shaft;
9) The spider holds two bearings (one next to the drum and one next to the pulley). I’d recommend replacing both. In my case and apparently in most cases it is the bearing closest to the drum that gets damaged, usually due to water leaking through the drive-shaft seal. The two bearings are different sizes 6205 and 6206. When ordering replacements, I’d recommend rubber sealed ‘RS’ bearings. There is also a shaft seal that sits between the larger bearing and the tub. The seal comes from Simpson ($25). The bearing can be bought from any bearing supply company and are about half the cost of the ‘official’ bearings, and probably better quality. I paid $16 for the 6205 and $20 for the 6206;
10) Knock out the old bearings. The correct way to do this is with bearing pullers etc, but I used a long steel rod (one of the transport locking rods that new machine’s come with) and a hammer (not even rubber). First knock out the large bearing and the drive shaft seal by inserting the rod through from the other bearing side and hit firmly while alternating the position of the force around the case of the bearing. I propped the spider against a brick to ensure the bearing and seal could pop out freely. Now turn around and repeat for the other bearing;
11) Clean up the spider and shaft, ensuring you remove any rust and debris;
12) Tap the new bearings into place. Again I used a hammer and firm tapping around the ring of the bearing;
13) Tap in the new drive shaft seal;
14) Reassemble.

Front loader washing machine = black streaks on clothing


I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years once you have ruled out anything getting inside the machine by accident etc, like something in pockets or greasy overalls, then its likely to be the drum bearings, has the machine started to get noisy on the spin the drum bearings are covered by a rubber seal, this seal gets damaged or worn and water leaks into the bearings themselves washing out the grease back into the drum where the washing is, you could also notice slight water marks on the floor underneath the machine on the floor, take the back off and look for water marks coming from the drum outer casing behind the pulley, these marks will be brown and will originate from a small drain hole, if any of the above change the bearings before any real damage is done, either to the clothes or the machine, as repair can be expensive? sorry, hope i have helped you as to where to look at least,
