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.
Our washing machine leaks from the bottom machine what part should I get to stop the leak.
You will need to access the lower compartment of the washer and determine where the leak is coming from. It could be a drain pump leaking, hoses that may have a hole or could be coming from the tub. This will need to be visually checked.
I recently replaced the centerpost gasket #383727 and it stopped the leak. Do you recommend installing the centerpost bearing kit #285203 to avoid future problems as part of the procedure? Thank you very much.
Answer Jeff, Normally not. If there was water leaking, or traces of a leak, on the drive tube assembly, or if there was an awfully loud noise in the spin, or excess "wobble" in the tub, then you'd want to consider the bearings and seals, otherwise leave well enough alone.
When the washer goes into the rinse cycle, water comes out the bottom of the washer. What part do I need to fix this? Thank you, Larry
Answer Hello Larry,
Without the model number, we can't go into specifics. With a top load machine, I would suspect the drain pump. If I'm thinking of the correct model, the pump is made of plastic and a string will bind the impeller and cause excessive pressure and friction on the pump, melting through the pump housing and causing a leak. If you would like a more specific diagnosis and illustrations on the replacement procedure, please re-post with a model number.
My washing machine makes a VERY loud rumbling noise during the spin cycle, along with a squeaky noise. There's also a considerable pile of rust dust and grey metal shavings under the machine. I'm worried that the bearing has gone, but I'm not sure which bearing I'll need. I'm also not sure if I'll need gaskets and seals as well.
Answer Hi Anna. The tub support part # 280184 comes with the center post bearing and seal kit installed. Open the lid. Reach in and move the agitator shaft front to back and side to side. If you hear the squeaking then, you will need a skate plate part # 3946509. There are 3 white suspension pads on the plate that has worn off and need replaced. Thank you.
My washer when spinning, it made a loud grinding noises ( like a bad bearing). Can you tell me what part do I need? When I look at the part 285203 listed in your website, I did not find my model. Pls help. Thank you. John.
Answer Hello John. Check and make sure there is nothing stuck inside the pump assembly and that there is nothing between the inner and outer tubs. If not, then it sounds like the bearings may be bad and you will need to replace the outer tub assembly W10193886. The bearing is made into the tub assembly.
When washer is in spin cycle, it makes thumping noise not to bad. help
Answer Hello Eli. You will need to check and see if the drive block 389140 is bad and will need to be replaced inthe unit. Hope this helps.
