I can't figure out how to replace the bearing I bought (order #5163292). How do I get at it to replace it? I've already taken the side and top panels off the unit.
To get to the bearing to replace it you will need to pull the tub out and remove the gearcase. Once the gearcase is out you will be able to replaced the bearing.
How do you install a spin bearing part #3204405 on model 417.97812702?
Answer Hello Robert,
This is explained beginning on page 123 of the service manual (5995406146), 59955406146. If you could provide an e-mail address, we can send you some illustrated service material to aid in your repair.
My washer and dryer is working fine. However, recently, while washing clothes, I can hear a slight knocking or banging noise coming from the unit. Any thoughts??
Answer Hello Vinny. Check and see if the inner basket feels loose. If so, the coupler under the agitator may be cracked and need to be replaced. If it is good, check the suspension springs and the base of the milk stool for cracks.
How do I remove The washer bearing from the motor.
To remove the bearing you will have to remove the agitator, inner tub, and the transmission. We would need the model number of the unit to be able to assist properly. And if you could provide an email we may be able to send information. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
Wsaher squeels during spin cycle . I have put a new belt on didn t make a differance.
The most likely cause of the squealing in the spin cycle would be bad bearings on the unit.
