I have the trunnion off and am replacing the tub seal kit because the tub was leaking at the shaft. I was wondering about this replacement trunnion, does it have a sleeve pressed into it. I noticed on mine where the seal kit upper piece goes against the trunnion, the trunnion sleeve, which appears to be brass is sorta chipped. Will this need to be replaced also?
Answer Jimmy, These are "water related" parts, anything chipped, rusted, or rough, needs to be replaced, or you'll have an ongoing leak. The "brass" ring you're describing, should be the upper portion of the tub seal kit, and you'll be removing and replacing it with the seal kit

After receiving a second shipment, 2 holes supposed to hold a plate in place against transmission were still drilled way too large. I know that I ordered correct screws for them. Am I missing something? Any tricks to install? What are the chances that I received two defective parts? Please help. Thank you.
Answer Hi Yuji. All the bottom tub mount holes are threaded. The flat plate mount holes are large enough for the bolts to pass through them and bolt into the flat plate. Hold the trunnion up so the flat plate will be squarely bolted onto the side of the transmission shaft as you are tightening both bolts. Thank You.
How do you get the trunnion to come out and separate the tub? Thank you, Joe
Answer Hello Joe,
Once you remove the two screws you can hit it with a rubber mallet to free it up and it just lifts out. There are bolts in the bottom of the tub under the trunnion to remove the outer tub.
Is there and installation torgue for the 5 screws bolting the inner tub to the trunnion. Thanks Joe
Answer Hello Joe. No, there is no torque specifications for the bolts. Make sure they are tight enough to support the tub to the trunnion 131545101. Hope this helps.
After I took the trunnion out I noticed two arrows pointing at one of the bolts on the tub. I believe that it is to put it back in a certain way. What is the correct way for the trunnion to be installed? Thanks Tim.
Answer Thye trunion part # 131545101, installs with your left hand pulling up on the bottom of the trunnion so the flat side of the transmission shaft,trunion, trunnion bar lines up so you can tighten the bolts to the flat bar against the transmission upper shaft. The inner tub will then bolt on top of the trunnion with the bolts in a non particular fashion. Thank you.
When the wash cycle is turned on, the water leaks out of the drum. What part or seal is broken? Could I separate the washer from this combo and buy a new washer?
Answer Hello Sultan. You will need to check and see if it is leaking at the tub seal 5303279394. There is no way of separating the washer and replacing just the washer. Hope this helps.
