Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a Westinghouse LT809s. I have anew bearing that sits on the bottom of the gearbox but want to replace the seal as well as I think that this is why the bearing failed How do I get the seal out as i have pulled it apart and have the bowl out and everything apart except the shaft with the seal is still in the bowl . I dont want to force it as I may bust something unseen.

SOURCE: Have a tub main bearing needing replaced on Amana LWA40AW2

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. .

SOURCE: rear tub bearing replacement

The shaft on the spinner basket may have worn and formed a groove, or, if the bearing seal was leaking, the shaft may be stuck because of rust. The best way I know how to get the spinner basket out, is to try spraying the shaft with a lubricant like penetrating oil, or WD-40 and letting it sit a while. Allow the lubricant to settle into the area where the shaft seats into the bearing. If this does not provide you with any luck, place the outer drum face down on something to elevate the spin basket up off the floor. I suggest using a couple of saw horses, or blocks of wood. Allow the outer shell to rest on supports, leaving the spin basket free. Place some padding or old towels on the floor underneath the basket. Take a mallet (I prefer a rubber mallet, as it tends to be less abusive) and tap on the end of the drum shaft. The spin basket should pop free and drop from the tub shell. I hope this helps you.

PS You only have to elevate the basket and tub off the floor enough to allow the spin basket to drop free of the tub. About a foot is all I would recommend. Make sure you inspect and clean the spin basket shaft once you get it removed. Some very fine emery paper is what I would recommend to make sure the shaft is not scored or have any rough areas. DO NOT use any electric sanders or dremils for this! It should be clean and smooth before re-installing. If you cannot get the basket free, or if you do, and the shaft is damaged, you may consider replacing it as well. Placing a damaged shaft into a new bearing may not seal properly.

SOURCE: VERY LOUD GRINDING NOISE LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

Get a new washer. Perhaps another brand.

The fix for me was to get a new washer. Had same issue with loud spin cycle. Tried researching while wife was continuing use of washer. Then the LE message appeared.

Took back apart and found that water had leaked and caused a boat load of damage. Bearings shot, seal leaks, drum leaks, Stator damaged. Same issue as 'jammy64' stated.

Cost to repair wasn't worth it. Going to get an
Electrolux model.

SOURCE: Can't separate agitator. Have tried extreme force

There are small but strong plastic tabs that hold the 2 pieces of the dual action agitator together. Look into the center from the top with a light you will see them. If you got the agitator out. 1 bolt 7/16 socket holds it in and down, seperating the 2 pieces to get to the dogs should be easy.

SOURCE: My westinghouse lt809s is very noisy while

Then you probably either need to clean that bearing assembly up or go to an appliance parts center and take the model number with you and purchase a new bearing and pulley assembley.. Also check for worn belt.

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.

My westinghouse washing machine LT809s keeps beeping at me and displaying the error code LL?


It means Low Level. Your water level is too low. Your machine isnt filling up properly or the water is being siphoned out as it fills which means your drain is lower than your water level. or your drain does not have an air lock in it any more.

Machine making loud noise on spins cycle


Well, the only time the washer (speedqueen) is noisy on spin is if one or both the bearings are faulty. Normally when you get a leak, it means the hub/flange and seal kit need replacement and this also includes the top bearing because when soap suds leak past the seal assembly it drips directly onto the bearing. The acidic properties in the soap suds eats the grease in the bearing which ends up becoming defective. One can also get an anoying squeek if a bottom base gasket is worn or removed. This would be audible even on wash cycle.Conclusion, check the bearing on top of gearbox.

Our wet container smoked and smelled, the taste of plastic got in the shake..There is no "visible" trouble Do you think it could be just the agitator or do you think it could be the motor Model 5000


first take off the container and on the under side bottom of it that sits in the unit is a drive gear see if you can turn it with your fingers also at the bottom of the wet container inside it is a blade that spins in a bearing and this bearing gets tight or even seized up at times strip out this bearing and renew it and the seal but watch your fingers as the blade is very sharp rap it in a thick rag to hold it in your fingers,,,,
