Does this kit contain all parts to quiet a extremely loud spin out problem? If so, I am comfortable in making the repair. Thank you. Darren
Answer Hello Darren,
The kit contains all of the parts to correct a loud spin due to a bad spin bearing. It does not contain the tools required. One of the tools is a spanner wrench 35-2968 used to remove the drive hub. Another is the nut seal tool 35-2968, which is used in conjunction with the spanner wrench. You will also need a seal removal and re-installation tool 12002012.
In the Hub and Seal Kit, Step 13 states that you need "anti-seize compound" and it is "available from the parts distributor." Was it supposed to be supplied and is it necessary or what would be a substitute?
Answer Hi Dick. Unfortunately the anti-seize compound is not included with the installation kit. This is one of the many "un-seen" technician chemicals that he needs to carry on a van. It's one of the non-supplied needed tools that makes the job more professional if you ever need to get back into the same area in the future it makes dis assembly easier. Sorry, we do not stock this at this time but always update supplies periodically. You can also get some at your local hardware store. Thank You.
This hub has 8 hole pattern and my washer has 4 hole pattern. How does the 8 hole pattern work for a 4 hole pattern?
Answer Hello Niles. You will line up the 4 holes in the tub with the 8 hole hub R9900552 and then install teh bolts into the unit. Hope this helps.
Water is pumping out of washer. But leaking from below. I took the front off & can see where it is leakig ? Do I need a hub & seal kit?
Answer Hi Sandy. If you can see dirty water leaking or dried marks right underneath the basket, then yes you will need the hub and seal kit part # R9900552. When you take the agitator off and see the drive bell under the agitator has broken sides then this part # is R9900189. Thank You.
