I have a leak that I think is the tub seal. I have the machine disassembled and the Hub and seal kit has parts that look different than mine, and does not include a top seal that goes under the agitator drive. I figured out the hub question from another question about the 8 holes and four holes. mine has 4 holes also. Do I just use the sealant for the top instead of the seal that I took off?
Answer Alex, You should have everything you need in the R9900552, including an instruction sheet 16021708 " Washer Hub Seal Kit. Comes With Hub, Seal Head, Gasket, Seal Shroud, Seal Seat, Screw, Spline Insert,Drive Bell And Seal Kit". The black plastic graduated seal will be the only seal under the agitator drive block. And yes you should install the tub cover gasket to insure a leak proof trouble free repair.
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.
