Got a leak coming from tub lower bearing, is this a sealed bearing? or is there a separate seal? Thank you in advance!
The bearing is a sealed bearing but there is a separate seal above the bearing which is where the leak is most likely coming from. The part number you would need is the hub and seal kit R9900552.
My washer has a loud clicking noise only in spin cycle that progresses faster as the tub spins faster. Also the machine shakes and moves around alot. Would this be the bearing 40004201p or seal kit w10116790
You will want to look at the helix 40047402 on the tub pulley at the bottom of the unit and make sure that it is not causing the clicking noise. The other thing that could cause this would be the brake pads being loose. Also check under the inner tub to make sure that there is nothing caught in there that would cause the noise. Last but not least check the drain pump 27001233 to make sure that there is nothing in it that would cause the noise. In most cases the brake pads have come loose and would need to be replaced. The brake pad part number is R0000014 and would need silicone grease to put on the pads which is part number 26594P.
Water is leaking from the bearing. What do I need to replace ?
Answer Jimmy John, The leak is from the tub bearing / seal assembly R9900457 not the bearing. But the leaking water has probably flushed the lubricant out of the bearing and it will also need to be replaced, it will get noisy after a few loads of laundry.
