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.
