I replaced the mounting stem with your parts a couple of months ago. Within the last month I have been getting a knocking sound during the agitation wash and rinse cycle. At first it was just in the regular wash cycle and now it is also in the delicate wash cycle. Does this mean one of the nuts I tightened with the spanner wrench or the little set screw if not holding the part(s) in place?
Answer Bryant, The tub clamping nut wouldn't normally make a knocking noise, if it were loose. But, if the set screw in the mounting stem was loose or seated in one of the weep holes in the transmission casing, that could create a knock noise. Also, there is a possibility that the brake package has gone dry and can make a noise in the agitate cycle, this isn't a very common issue, but it does occur. You may want to check and lube the brake package with a teaspoon of 90 weight gear oil.
I need the gear that fits under the agitator to cause the agitator to turn with the motor.
The gear that sits directly under the agitator is the drive block which is part number WH40X175.
My Maytag a712 leaves little drops of thick Carmel type oil on my floor. Can you help lead me in the right direction to fix this myself? The washer has been sitting for over a year during renovations without being used. Thank you.
Answer Hello John,
You will need to replace the lip seal on the bottom of the transmission. This repair is seldom effective unless the seal is installed with the brake housing removed. Also, if the new seal is installed with the brake housing removed and the seal still leaks, the transmission may have a groove worn on the transmission shaft where the old seal rode against it for so long. In this case, you can either tear down the transmission to replace the shaft or replace the transmission assembly.
My Maytag A390 inter tub does not stay centered. I have replaced the damper AP4024203 but it still does not stay centered. What could be the problem?
Answer Hello Alejandro,
This is either going to be the damper pad 203956, the main base (bent at area of the dome in the center) 203274, or a combination of the two. Lets hope the main base is not the issue since this part has been discontinued by the manufacturer and no satisfactory substitutions have been provided.
My washing machine tub is leaking out the bottom. What all needs to be fixed and is there a video on how to do this? Thanks
Answer Hello Jay,
You will need to install the mounting stem kit 6-2095720 and the tub bearing repair kit 6-2040130. We do not yet have a video on this repair. You may still be able to locate one on you-tube.
