Maytag washer tub seal bearing kit - grease?

Hello,

I am replacing the tub seal and bearing kit (204013)on a seven year old Maytag washing machine. The bearing is shapedlike an empty toilet paper roll (about 3" long). Should this bearingbe greased before installation? If so, with what type of grease.

SOURCE: Maytag MAV7200 Washer......needs seal and bearing kit

I HAD TO REPLACE THE SPIN BEARING ON MY MAYTAG ATLANTIS WASHER MAV9750,
it was making a loud noise during sin cycle, like a bad bearing would
make, jet engine kind of noise, i did replace the bearing and made a web
site with pictures on how to do it, since it almost takes all the parts
out, it will show you how to get to most of the parts in the machine, and
i also included links for downloading the repair manual, and parts at
appliance parts pros web site

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune bearing noise

John,

What are the first two numbers of your serial number i.e.10 through 17. I’m an owner like you not a repair person….. but I have a very good feel for machine issues and the repair of the machine. See my ratings under this nick name FAV6800AWDIY and my old original nick name dh1200s.

The biggest problem with FIXYA is they don’t ask the user for Model or S/N of the machine. I can’t believe how many professional repair folks jump in with comments and they have no clue as to what machine is being discussed.

You may end up going with a replacement if it’s the Outer Tub Bearings. I would remove the tub and try to replace before I would junk a $1000 but that’s me you would need to decide. This a weak repair area for me I have not replaced the outer tub bearings on any of the three FAV66800A’s I own but I feel confident I could do it. I buy these cheap and repair for resale.

Have you had the Clutch Pulley removed/replaced in the past for dC or uC error code failure in Spin Cycle?

I would drop the Clutch Pulley out and clean up/re-lube the One-Way Roller Clutches and check for signs of a tub seal leak. Then with the Clutch Pulley out spin up the Wash Basket CCW as fast as you can by hand and listen for bearing noise of the Outer Tub Bearings. Let’s make sure the One-Way Roller clutch bearing is not the bearing noise source. See this post for removing the clutch and doing maintenance and replacement. Clutch Fix Post

I have to post rest of this comment as a comment. This forum is not geared up for DIY responses.

Where can I get a replacement tub bearing kit?


The part number you will need is W10435302. This KIT contains a tube of high temp grease, 1 tube of Pliobond glue, 1 bearing shaft, 1 upper and 1 lower bearing, 1 rubber tub seal, 1 thrust washer, 1 aluminum spacer, 1 set of instructions--check it carefully--if **anything** is missing, take it back and get another. You will also HAVE to have a special tool kit to remove the old bearings and install the new ones. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE KIT EXACTLY. The bearing repair tool kit is W10447783. You will need a 2lb steel mallet. If you've never done this before, I strongly advise calling for service. When setting the new bearings, that aluminum spacer has to be JUST loose enough to be able to move but *not* move freely. It's a "feel" sort of thing when tightening up the tool to press the new bearings in. I hope I helped you!

My Maytag A9700 is leaking from the bottom of the outer tub. I have changed both the tub bearing and the stem seal but it is still leaking - even more than before I started. My question is whether I


If the boot seal was properly seated onto the outer tub lip, then you should focus on the water seal (#39 in the graphic - it should have come with the mounting stem kit) as the source of the leak. Extra care must be used when installing this over the agitator drive shaft - some recommend adding a lubricant (Maytag center seal grease works well) to the shaft before sliding the mounting stem (and water seal) down onto the agitator shaft. Also, check the two sealing surfaces where the top of the boot seal (#40) meets the bottom of the mounting stem (#30). Look for cracks, chips or any bits of debris. Anything that keeps those two surfaces from meeting perfectly will cause a leak. These repairs should go fairly smoothly, but leaking water seals and chipped boot seals can cause problems.

Washer slinging grease from bottom of tub onto sidewalls of washer. Also beginning to leak water while it is agitating and spinning. Do I need Tub Bearing kit?


You need the outer tub seal as a minimum for the water leak. The grease is a different mater, it could come for several places by the most likely in the transmission, not the bearings.

Makes loud noise in spin cycle


The problem is that the seals are leaking and allowing water to attack the tub bearings.
You need new tub seals and bearings.....not as difficult as it may seem.
see u tube video on replacing maytag seals and bearings

Loud noise during spin cycle (Bravos washer) was told the bearing is pressed into the tub. Looking at parts list they show the "basket" and the "tub outer". Is the bearing in the "tub outer"?


Similar issue, lot of racket on final spin and was told only option was a $280 whole tub assembly. Dissasembled tub and removed bearings from shaft. Took to local bearing warehouse and got replacements for <$25. The small one was a Nachi Quest 6005-2NSE9 and the large one was 6006-2NSE9. It took me @ 4-6 hrs in total and had to work to get top bearing onto shaft but much more attractive option than replacement or whole tub. Extremely irritated with Maytag and will NOT give them another dime. A appliance less than 1.5 yr old should not have these issues - cheaply made. Is a shame as Maytag used to mean something, it meant quality but not anymore.

I think my Maytag MAV6200AWW washer has a bad tub seal & bearing


if you have had this unit for over 5 years Then it is TOTALLY NOT worth the repair - if it is only a year or 2 old then call MAYTAG and they may offer a parts/labor concession. average life is 5-10 years now as sucky as that is!!

Loud spin cycle - leaks water


No boot on a top loader, the tub seal and bearing are gone, water leaked from the tub seal, rusted the bearing and quite possibly the milk stool and transmission. Check your warranty, the transmission may have a 5 year limited warranty, usually it will include the tub seal and bearing with the kit.

The Neptune bearings are an interesting breed... Maytag wants you to replace the whole outer tub which includes the bearings installed for $180 or so. You can replace the bearings yourself. See www.tonytool.com to see how it is done. The tool costs $379 or so... but it is designed for the service tech. not the d.i.y.er. But watching the video can give you an idea of how to do it yourself. The bearings were available on www.neptunewaxmotor.com for about $35.00. You will also need the Maytag seal kit 12002022 to complete the job whether you decide to replace bearings or the outer tub.

Maytag washer leak


the stem kit, boot seal is worn and leaking. if not repaired soon the bearings on the tub and on the brake package will start to rust and sound like a train going by. After 15 years of service its probably time to replace. Call your local service company and get an estimate on replacement of the seals and weigh that against the cost of replacement of machine. hope this helps. please come back and rate my answer.
