;) Thanks for all the help, I was once a Maytag repair man. I have a LAT9614AAE top loader 1997/98 circa basic unit with orbital type transmission. Leaking at bearing to gradually seizing so that it would not spin (classic burning rubber smell due to belt slipping). Installed new tub bearing kit and tub seal kit (I did not have tub wrench, used adjustable oil filter wrench with tub bearing kit and channel locks with tub nut-yes reverse thread)  fixed leak but tub rubbed against plastic ring probably due to improper tub nut tightness. Tub rubbed hole in plastic ring, tapped same with electrical tape and measured tub diameter is now out of round per say, by a quarter on an inch or is that normal? Tightened same now (lined up  tub lint screen with  flat side of orbital transmission) with minor rubbing during spin cycle. So my question is regarding tub integrity (round) and  any reference points to set tub.

the bottom of your stem seal seems to have a white ring around it where it should be black.  It looks as though the carbon face has been worn right off.

That was the first thing I noticed about it when I got the new parts, other than the color though, the old and new seemed to be identical. That white ring seems to be made of teflon or something similar.

The parts are new and I got them from a guy on ebay that has an appliance parts store, but that was before I found this site. It'll be a couple/few days before I get the new seal.

OK, the parts were at the house when I got home last night so I put them in, reassembled, tested it and it's running perfect!:D
I can't say for sure that the seal I had was a genuine Maytag part, but I know that the newest one is, and while the shape and size was identical and flexibility was not. The seal I had was much stiffer and harder and now that I've seen and installed a new on, I'm convinced that the one I had would have leaked no matter what.
Well, just wanted to update and thank everyone for the help. I guess the main lesson I learned was that you get what you pay for with parts, but then again, if the job had gone smooth the first time, I might not have found this site and "met" some great people.:D

Wahoo!  What a bummer to do all that work with faulty parts... at least you know it wasn't your workmanship...  glad to know its done!
