Washer doing fine only during spin cycle make loud noise , sound like jet engine taking off.
Answer Hello Erik. Based on the information you provided, you will need to order and replace the tripple lip seal bearing W10116791 on the unit.
I think I need to replace the bearing, which is listed as a upper/lower. Machine sounds like a jet taking off when spinning. Could this be the issue, the bearing and is there only one bearing and it is just listed as upper/lower meaning one bearing?
Answer Hello Mich,
There is an upper and a lower bearing on these units. The upper bearing is called the main bearing assembly but it only fails if the outer tub seal has leaked detergent water into it so, the seal must be changed at the same time. The part numbers are dependant on the first two digits of the serial number. If the first two numbers are 13 or lower you will need to order seal kit number W10116791 and the bearing is included in this kit. The lower bearing for serial numbers beginning with 13 or lower is 12002013. If your serial number starts with 14 or higher, you will need to order seal kit number W10116790 and bearing 40004201P. The lower bearing is 40004001.
My machine washes ok but on the discharge cycle the gear is sliping. Whats wrong?
Answer Hello Gifford. If the gears are slipping in the unit, then it sounds like the transmission W10219148 is bad and will need to be replaced in the unit. Check and make sure it is not the helix 40047402 that is worn on the pulley. If so, it will not release the brake properly.
