Rumble like noise on the spin cycle?
Answer Hello Luke. If the noise is a roaring noise, you will need to replace the mount stem and tub bearing in the unit.
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.
