Elite model #11027087603. How do I remove tubseal nut on bottom of washer that holds motor rotor on shaft?


that should have an inset, hex-headed screw/bolt. You will have to hold the rotor with one hand and use your other hand to loosen that screw. they use thread lock on that screw, so it will be difficult. but, that's only half the battle. You will have to remove the tub cover, agitator (7/16 agitator nut size), and the spin basket to access the tub seal. the seal has to go on from the inside of the tub assembly. Make sure you don't use anything against the outer lip of where the seal seats inside the tub, or you will have to replace the outer tub because it will still leak. Push the seal all the way down. then before you put everything back together, pour a small amount of water in the tub and see if you see any leaks. anything major will show then, but if there is a small leak, you will not know it till you try to wash with it. You shouldn't have to remove the stator screw or do anything from the bottom side of this unit. You should be able to replace that seal from the top side. good luck.

I have a D3432 and had a blocked pipe that kept the motor running. I opened the toe kick and drained the water from the bottom tray which seemed to have solved the motor issue but after running the machine...


Well, there are a couple of places where washers can leak.
  • There are a couple of hoses underneath: from the tub to the water pump, and from the water pump to the drain connector.
  • The fill sensor switch has a length of small diameter tubing that connects to the outer tub.
  • The tub itself could rust through (as it did when my 1984 washer was about 22 years old)
  • The seal or bearing where the motor shaft goes through the outer tub could have failed.
You will have to take the back cover off and run a cycle to identify the site of the leak.

WATER LEAKING FROM DOWNSIDE WHILE RUNNING


The first thing you must do is to have a good observation of the fault. Since the leak is from the bottom side, you must check the hose , the hose clamps , the tub and the drain pump/valve.
The possible areas of leak can be from any of these, remove the couplings, clean and set them back.
Make sure also that there is no leak from a failure of the washer water seal on the spindle of the agitator. If so remove and change the seal and reset.

The big black washer between the tank and bottom is deteriorating also the black washers on the bolts that hold the tank to the bottom are coming apart and the tank is leaking


Any hardware stores where plumbing supply is sold including lowes and home depot sell toilet seal kits including toilet to tank seals as well as toilet rebuild kits. Ask for a toilet to tank seal and washers for the bolts which might come with the large seal(check)
1. Close toilet water valve
2. Drain tank or sop with a towel and squeeze into tub until toilet is empty or bail water out with a cup.
3. Remove two tank bolts
4. clean area where old seals were
5. put tank seal on bowl and set tank lining it on top of seal.
6. Install tank bolts with new seals and tighten evenly
7. Don't over tighten or tank will crack. You probably can tighten until tank and toilet touch evenly on both sides.
8. Fill and check for leaks.

My bathtub drain leaks. Is there a product to


No, not without sealing, I mean clogging, the drain. Do you know exactly where the leak is coming from? I would suspect that the water is getting around the drain, instead of down the drain. The visible part of the drain should unscrew from the part that is underneath. That bottom part is likely permanently sealed to your drain plumbing.
You may be able to easily fix your leak by:
#1 Unscrewing the visible drain top.
#2 Replacing the washer under that top. This will seal your tub to your drain. All water will then be forced to flow down the drain properly.
#3 Screw the top of your drain back into place WITHOUT folding or wrinkling the new washer.
Good luck

LWR50AW 9904000131 is leaking from the bottom of the center of the machine. How do we take it apart to solve this problem? Thank you, Norma Marchant


Hi

You'll need to replace the transmission seal. For this repair job you’ll require special tools like T20 Screwdriver and other similar tools. You can disassemble the machine by following the steps mentioned below--

1. Remove the front panel (screws on each side)
2 Remove the two 3/8 screws pointing upward. This will allow you to lift the top up.
3. Remove the agitator.
4. Remove the spanner nut (requires tool and its left hand thread).
5. Remove the top off the outer tub (some snap off and some have a clamp all the way around the tub)
6. Remove inter tub.
7. Remove the set screws in the mounting stem (the treaded stem that the spanner nut was on).
8. Now with the same tool remove the mounting stem.
9. The outer tub is mounted to three legs. Remove the bolts that hold it on and remove the hoses from the tub. Once it is done remove the outer tub.
10. Remove the rubber boot.
11. Prop the tub up on something so that you won’t damage the stem that the drain hose connects to and step on the seal to push it out.
12. Turn the tub back over and install the new one the same way (may want to lube it with a small amount of soap).
13. On the transmission there is a metal sleeve where the tub sits, remove it. Now reinstall the new sleeve.
14. Reassemble the washer replacing the seal, boot, tub bearing, mounting stem and spanner nut.

Also check the Drain pump and drain hoses inside the washer if they are firmly connected and not leaking. You can see this diagram for more details--

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Danby DDW396: pump leaks when in use.


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
