Do all of the parts in the shaft seal kit (AP4365097) sit above the motor mounting plate (ie plastic part that screws directly to motor), or do any of these parts fit between the plate and the motor? Also, specifically what order to they reattach and also which side of the bearing (ie second row in diagram, 2nd in from the right) faces down - the white plastic part or the black metal part? Can't seem to remember what everything looked like to put it back together LOL - I thought everything was on top of the motor plate but one of your previous answers says that the motor has to be removed to replace one of the bearings, which doesn't make sense to me...
Answer Steve, If you're replacing the shaft seal kit Only: A) There"s no need to remove the pump assembly from the tub(unless you want more room) B) All of the seal kit components are installed from the motor plate up. We'll send you some information that should be helpful, but basically, the boot seal is installed in the plate, with the "white" ceramic ring facing up, install the impeller shaft sleeve on the threaded motor shaft, then install the seal seat cup, with the metal surface facing down towards the ceramic seal.
replacing the motor seal kit. how do i remove the motor form the filter plate base.
Answer Carlos, Unless the motor or motor shaft is damaged, you don't need to separate the motor from the pump housing, you don't even need to remove the pump from the tub, but it is a lot easier to work with if you do. We'll send you some information that should be helpful. Thanks
