Washer makes a groaning noise during spin cycle, and clothes seem too wet after spin cycle.
Answer Scott, The support bearing and seal kit 285203 is a good possibility, But the 285785 Clutch assembly that could be slipping or the brake shoes 285438 dragging against the brake drum, is a more likely issue. You may want to start there first.
What type of oil should I use for replacing these bearings?
Answer Hello Corey,
Make sure there is not an excess of grease inside where it can contact the clothes but 5303307893 works great.
Hi. I replaced the center post seal/gasket on my Kenmore Series 70 washer. It continues to leak a little when the load is on high. It does not appear to leak when the load is low or medium. Have you any suggestions as to what might be the cause? Thanks.
With the unit only leaking on larger loads you will want to check to make sure that there is no cracks in the outer tub and check to make sure that the pressure hose is not leaking. If that checks ok then the most likely cause would be a faulty bearing and seal kit.
Do you have a video for the bearing and seal kit? My washer is leaking in the front. It seems to be coming from the bottom of the tub and dripping off that thin silver metal plate . I have already replaced the internal drain hose and the water pump. Thanks
Answer Nelly, Based on your post description and a little experience, you most likely have a leak from the tub seal 383727 or center post gasket. It will require a special spanner wrench and hammer to remove the tubs. The part does have a video attached when you review the part number in the APP parts diagram, so you'll have a better idea of what to expect.
