Hi, My Maytag # LAT8426AAE is leaking from the tub seal during filling, washing. No funny noises or other issues. Which spanner wrench do I need? and do I need the tub seal kit or must I buy the bearing kit as well? Which parts must I get? Thanks. And if they don't come with it, what kind of lubricant to use? Thanks
Answer Dane, You'll want to replace both parts, tub seal kit 6-2095720 and the tub bearing kit 6-2040130 and consider new belts 12112425. The spanner wrench part number yu'll need is TJ90TB123A and a few drops(3 or 4) of "turbine oil" on the tub bearing and race. Will get you back up and running for quite a few more years. Just remember, do not overtighten the mounting stem, Hand tighten, then a couple of light taps on the spanner wrench handle with a hammer,is all it takes.

Hi, this is my third attempt to my problem question. I have a S5100DOWW washer GE I cant get the hub nut loose. Any more ideas without cutting the nut?
Answer Hello Hector,
If you have tried to loosen using spanner wrench TJ90TB123A and penetrating oil then you may need to use a hammer and chisel and cut the nut off the unit. Be careful not to damage the threads on the shaft.
I need to remove the hub nut I have a spanner wrench it seems a little big for the nut,however the nut is too tight I tried hot water and spray ,doesnt get loose its there another trick I can use?
Answer Hector, Are you turning the nut in the correct direction " Remove left-handed 1-1/16" transmission hub nut. The nut is aluminum, take care not to round the edges when removing or replacing.(Note that the word "LOOSEN" with an arrowshowing turn to the LEFT appears on the nut." The nut WH2X1193, being aluminum, could be chiselled or cut off as a last resort, but you'll need to be very careful, you don't want to damaged the threads on the transmission housing tube.
I just ordered the spanner wrench part number TJ90tb123a. It is a two piece wrench and I can't figure out how to use the wrench to remove the hexagon nut. Thanks for the help.
Answer Christie, The TJ90TB123A is a two piece component, you'll need to use both pieces. The flat ring with the slots and hexagonal cut out will slip on to the washer hub nut. The wrench handle is "two sided" the side with the four protrusions is the side you will need to align and insert into the slots on the flat plate/ring, once you have the plate and wrench handle seated on the hub nut, you may have tio tap the wrench handle counterclockwise a few times to "break" the hub nut loose and remove it.
