|With the realization set in that I am going to have to soon get a washer anyway (this Amana is 15+ years old), I just put the new drive bell on the washer without seating the seal(hours of banging and hammering had taken a toil on my head). The washer works fine... for now. The only thing that I can figure the seal to be used for is to protect the metal parts it surrounds from moisture. The old seal was damaged anyway as it spilled out rusty water as it was being removed. Anyone have a brand recommendation for a new washer? Front loader vs. top loader?
