Has the seal in the top side popped out yet?

 

Driving the shaft up and out the top should pop the seal out and let the shaft come out.  If the seal doesn't pop out, the shaft can't come out either.

 

I've never had to do one of these yet so I'm not talking from experience only logic from reading the instruction sheet.

 

The new seal is to be glued in with the adhesive supplied with the seal and bearing kit, if the original seal was also glued with this same adhesive from the factory it might take a good hit on the shaft end to pop the seal loose.

Posted 07 March 2013 - 09:01 AM

we have been changing the tub assembly on these, i find when the inner basket gets jammed on the shaft putting the agitator nut back on and spinning the shaft with my impact driver while lifting the inner tub gets them out easy

may be able to do this for the outer tubs IF you have a helper

we now have the tool, i plan on recycling an outer tub,do the bearings in the shop, then just do an exchange program

save the hastle of changing the bearing in the customers house

 

i'll let you know how our first change out goes


The only stupid question is the one not asked

hope i've been helpfull, if you wish to buy Brnt beer kick here
