Does the split ring support and rub against the inner tub and does it need lubricating like the tub bearing?
Answer WV, No, Do Not lubricate the split ring WH02X10265 but make sure the "hub washer" WH2X1199 is in place first(under the split ring) so it seals properly. You do have the right idea, the split ring does support the tub/hub assembly, and as you tighten the hub nut, all three components compress together in order to drive the tub. Thanks
Reinstalling a new split ring etc. My friend did not pay attention which side faces up the larger flat side or the other?
Answer Hi Lesabre. The Split ring washer part # WH02X10265. The large side(end) goes down first. It is placed onto the washer part # WH2X1199 first. So the cone shape top is made perfect to hold the tub support part # WH45X10060 as it is also tapered on the inside also. Thank You.
