Do I use a lubricant between the sleeve and the tub brass bearing, as no grease comes with the kit? (Maytag Top-Loader)
Answer Ed, Supposedly the lubricant is no longer needed but most of the "old school" servicers still apply 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of high speed turbine oil TJ93240 to the bearing and sleeve assembly. Once you have the outer tub and bearing installed and mounted to the support arms, drop the oil onto the sleeve and bearing and allow the oil to migrate down into the assembly while you finish installing the boot, mounting stem, etc. Once you have it all back together, put the washer into the final spin/drain cycle. The spin will cause the bearing and sleeve to get warm and absorb most of the oil. Any residual oil on the inside of the cabinet walls should be wiped away with a rag.
My washer is leaking when in the spin cycle.
Answer Hello Floyd,
You will need to order and replace the outer tub seal and spin bearing. These are called the Tub Repair Kit 6-2040130 and the Mounting Stem and Bearing Kit 6-2095720 on this model.
How do I fix my washer when it spins slow on the spin cycle?
Answer Hello Johnny. Make sure the bearings are good. If so, you will need to check and see if the belt is good on the unit.
During spin cycle machine shakes something awful. I have checked the level of the machine and it is in perfect balance, but still make a lot of noise and shakes. What to do?
Answer Dean, If you're sure the washer is leveled and installed on a solid floor, then you'll need to remove the front panel (two, 2 Phillips head screws and swing the panel out at the bottom, to release the top clips) and check to see if the damper 203725 and damper pads 203956 have worn out and the tub cannot move freely. If you see the pads "sticking" out from between the damper and the base of the washer, or if there's a heavy gray metallic powder on the base, then the pads and the damper may have to be replaced.
Makes a lot of noise and vibrates when spinning?
Answer Hello Bobby. You will need to look for plastic shavings in the bottom of the machine. If there are some, the snubber ring 21002026 will need to be replaced to balance the machine.

What is the easiest way to remove tub bearing?
Answer Hello Mike. The bearings are not easy to remove from the tub assembly. They will have to be pressed out and pressed into the tub assembly and care must be taken to prevent busting the tub assembly.
