Maytag LAT9416AAE leaking - have questions
Posted 24 October 2010 - 08:36 AM
I turned over the bottom of the basket and it looks like it has a lot of built up gunk. I took a picture of the bottom of the basket. Is it suppose to be clean, down to the metal tub?

Second question, when I pushed the old rubber bushing part of the tub bearing kit out of the tub, I didn't notice which way it was installed, the grooved part of the rubber bushing up or down?
I put the grooves up, see picture below.

I then put the tub in, bolted it to the three support arms, hooked up the drain hose to the tub. Slipped the seal on the tub, all the way down and the lip. Then hand tightened the top piece, then tighted it with the spanner wrench about an 1/8 of a turn. Then I put the allen head bolt in the top piece. I then put water in the tub to check for leaks. As the water got to the top in side piece, just below the top rubber seal on the transmission shaft water started coming out of the grooves and also out of the brass piece area.

Here's the procedure I use when I do one of these jobs. Compare with what you did==> http://fixitnow.com/...le-care-washer/

Seal on tub - NO Leak
Then I put the mount stem on hand tight, then tightened it a little more with the spanner wrench. Put the torx screw in. I then started adding water and got it into the threaded part, below the transmission shaft seal, and it started leaking.
So it looks like it is leaking where the rubber boot meats the mount stem bottom.
Am I missing something? How does the two pieces seal, just against each other? Any ideas?

I've never had a reason to try and test before putting the tub back in and the last step on a seal change is to run spin cycle for 2 minutes with no water to seat the new seal surfaces.
From your pictures everything looks fine.
