Ok, so I need to remove the drive belts and pulley, and then use the brake tool



to check that the brake assembly is fully screwed in? Is it reverse threaded? It didn't specify that in the manual.

I'll post a better pic of the brake pak after I remove the drive pulley here in a little while. I'll have to go borrow that brake tool from the local appliance repair place...they let me borrow the maytag spanner wrench too :)

Thanks!
Scott

Here is a better picture of the brake assembly underneath the washer. I can see threads there, but they look like they've been exposed for awhile. It doesn't look to my (untrained :)) eyes like there are any recently exposed threads.



Thanks,
Scott

Alright :) Thanks so much for weighing in on my issues!! I have to work tomorrow, so I'll probably take the outer tub out and check it out on Friday or Saturday. I still have to order (again!!) the new mount stem/boot seal kit. Sigh.

Again, thanks so much. I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm in the middle of the same job. Guessing it's a also good idea to replace the top o-ring at this time. I also have the white half moon clip. At first I thought that it was a broken part of the old stem and seal. Was up all night wondering why the tranny shaft was pulling out till I saw this thread.

Wish I disassembled everything before I ordered stem seal and bearing. would have noticed that outer tub is too rusted for my liking. Looks like it's paint and silicone band-aid time before I re-assemble.

As far as the tranny sticking up too far problem... Can't the bearing sleeve just be pushed down till it hits the flange on the top of the transmission?

Sorry for the repeat posts. New to this. Closer look at the pic's changed my mind. I can now see that the sleeve is pushed all the way down. If I can figure out how to get pic's on this thread, will show you my completed assy.

Ok, before I go banging and bending this tub back out, here are some pix of the tub, transmission, and inside/outside of the tub bearing, just so you guys can have a better view and make sure you still think that I bent the tub when I put in the new bearing. It's really hard to show the curvature of the bottom of the tub!!

What do you think?
Thanks,
Scott

I really hate to recommend it but its the only thing that i can see that would cause your problem. I was hoping we would get more opinions on the subject but no such luck. I really cant see anything else that is out of place. Im not sure what the best way for you to try and bend it back is either. if the hub in the middle isnt perpendicular the bearing will bind....

Having trouble posting pic's. File size too big.

With the outter tub on 2x4's so it sit's flat off the drain nipple, I measure about 3.5"

from the floor to the top of the flange. Sorry, in the middle of dinner and out of time.

Not chewing up the carbon face to seal. I'm still leaking water:X

yes, looks OK, but you could add an extra CR/LF (or more) after each picture to separate them ...

200k MAX

You could use M.S. Paint program, (top menu) Image, Stretch & Skew, 50% Horz & Vert. etc ...

One picture per message unless you post them somewhere else and link to them as the other posted did.

Thanks for the replies! I'll rig something that will fit closely all around the bearing, but not apply pressure to it, then just bang the tub out a ways, put it back on, and see how it sits relative to the transmission. Rinse and repeat, if necessary :) Since I originally bent it (we think) by banging too hard on the tub bearing, I think it should bend back the same way if I can get the force applied uniformly around the tub bearing on the inside. My new boot seal should be here later today or Monday -- third time's the charm, right???

@phyguy - I'll check that measurement as soon as I find a two by four (I've GOT to have one around here somewhere!)

Thanks all!
Scott

Still struggling with MS paint pic's and resize...long day. I'll try a couple of posts

not sure if this is of any help since my attempt at bearing and seal is a failure. still leaks. really at a loss, only seems to leak under a clothes full load. if I fill tub for a test with no clothes and adj/spin, it seems OK. I'm loosing it, this is turning into a 30 pack/weekend job:P

tough pic angle but really does not look like the tranny is much farther away than yours?

try gluing the boot part of the seal to the tub with silicone. the boot relies on the smooth porcelain surface to seal, the patch is most likely preventing it from sealing properly.

I got a ton of good silicone around the boot base. let it set up overnight but still leaks today. feel that it's next to impossible that that's where is's leaking from now.

 

my gut tells me it's the boot carbon face or stem. I did take this apart about 6 times before I decided to silicone so maybe it's beat. the other possibility is that I'm not sure if it's OEM. Purchased of internet parts place for $35, could be junk?

 

would like to get you the new pic angle but since it's glued in place, goint to be hard.

getting late, will pick this up tomorrow.

fill it up with water and let it leak a bit then drain and take apart. look at the seal to see what parts are wet. that will give you a clue as to where its leaking. i did have one, one time, where the carbon face had a hairline crack only visible at a certain angle. so inspect the face closely with a flashlight for imperfections.

Can you rotate the transmission body a little out of the way so we can better see the bottom of the tub bearing where the transmission goes through?

Thanks,
Scott
