What kind of glue should I use for the tub seal?
Answer Hello Joe,
The best to use is the high temperature adhesive Y055980. It sets enough to use the machine in 30 minutes so most of the time, by the time you have the unit back together, you can use it. I don't like using anything silicone as many of these products say on the container that they take up to 24 hours to "cure".
Do you need all this or just some of the componets?
Answer Hello Tom. You will need to use and replace all the parts sent with the hub and seal assembly R9900457. Hope this helps.
I can't get the nut off. There is a small spline inside the larger spline that is preventing me from getting a socket on the nut. Can that small spline be removed? I tried penetrating oil and heat. Any other advice to loosen the nut?
Answer Hi Bill. If there is no way to get the hub nut off, then you need a 12" tall chisel to carefully split the nut in 2. It is part # 40016301. It is under the drive bell and the hub seal. We cannot understand the reason it is not included with the manufacture hub and seal kit. Wear gloves and be sure the chisel does not slip off and into the inner tub side. If you have a portable dremel tool or a 4-1/4" grinder to assist. is another way to remove the nut. Thank You.
When replacing the seal kit, there is a plastic spline with a rubber seal on top around the drive shaft under the agitator drive hub. How does this come off?
Answer Hello Angelo. It sounds like the drive hub may have broken. You will need to pull the plastic piece off the shaft. Make sure the bolt is removed. Hope this helps.
