Hey Appliance Warriors.

Been, using this site for a while to fix old appliances around the house, and now my friends think I know what I'm doing and I've been fixing theirs too. This is the first time I haven't been able to figure it out just from reading old forums/faqs.

Alright, I when I bought the washer it already wasn't working. The belt was toast, burnt through and snapped in one spot, replaced the belt. Filled and agitated perfect. Thought I had an easy fix. But alas, no spin. There is also a small leak where the trans enters the drum, grrr.

The motor pulley turns fine but just spins on the belt. Seem like when the motor reverses direction to spin the trans pulley just locks up. I confirmed this by taking the belt back off...when I turn by hand in the the agitate direction/counter clockwise the pulley turns freely, in the clockwise direction the pulley turns until the helix rises and hits the brake assembly, then it just locks up.The brakes do release, took some wiggling the pads were locked to the rotor with corrosion.

I'm thinking bad bearing. But why does it turn so easy in one direction and not the other?

The trans isn't trashed because It does agitate fine, right?

Am I likely to get away with the triple seal kit W10116791?

Am I likely to be able to do the repair without the "required" tools.

Is this going to be a lasting repair or is this a constant issue with this model? Seems like it's going to be a job.

Thanks.

Alrighty then...

This must be one of those custom one of a kind washers nobody has ever worked on

When in doubt start taking stuff apart is what I always say. Guess I'm on my own on this one :?

Service Manual

The Part you suggested is most likely your problem.

MFG. Part # W10116791

Repair Clinic part # 1258432 Seal & Bearing Kit Link




You can do it without the brake tool, but you will most likely need a spanner wrench.

Okay...got the part as suggested, took it apart without too much difficulty.

When I put the washtub hub on I cranked it down about as hard as I could by hand. I did use a pipe wrench and didn't use the spanner. But it got on pretty damn tight, and I didn't even mar the metal on the hub.

As tight as it was there was only a little bit of thread left on the trans shaft sticking through the hub to attach the seal nut to. I snugged it down as tight as I dared with the minimal thread left (the hub nut is plastic) I didn't seem right but I didn't see any way to get the tub down any farther on the shaft or tighten the hub any farther. So I put is back together.

Agitates fine, won't spin, Looks like the belt is too loose Trans spins fine by hand. I think I was sold the wrong belt at a local shop here. I got the spin cycle going by pressing on the belt with a board to add more tension. We got spin! But the piece of crap starts leaking again...BADLY, worse then before. Suck all the water out, take it apart down to the hub. Sure enough, the seal nut is loose, first couple of threads damaged. It was definitely not on there far enough. Not enough thread.

WTF am I doing wrong here, I'm missing something.

need to check the lower portion of the threads to ensure every thing is screwing down properly.The outer tub wasn't rusted in the center was it?

Both inner and outer tubs are plastic. The threads seem fine. Just doesn't seem like there is enough thread left for the seal nut after the hub is on.

Camera is a no go, girlfriend took it when she moved out. Guess she was sick of going to the laundromat, lol. Any Ideas from just the description, any more details I can provide? Have a hundred bucks plus time in this thing at this point and I got nothing.

Anyone know this model specifically?

It sounds as if your hub seal is not seated properly at one end or the other, review the information on page 24 of the service manual link that appl.tech provided in a previous link as I recall the seating always being a dicey affair at best. The Airbell seats way down onto the splines when in correctly. You DEFINITELY require the proper belt for this unit and the Idler and pump drives should be checked for proper movement.

Also, you don't mention whether you replaced the tripple lip seal in the tub as this particular design was a real gem of a design to say the least

Yes,I replaced the triple lip seal, that's why the hub was off. The leaking was one of the original problems. I don't see what's "dicey" about getting the hub on. Big fat thread on the trans, big collar of a hub screws down onto the inner tub. Now getting it off was a bitch.

Def missing something, have looked at the manual a hundred times, as well as the instructions that come with the triple lip.
