The upper tub bearing is a bushing set up, (pre-lubed nothing more needed).

 

The lower spin bearing above the brake pak should be a sealed bearing and not need any other lube either.

 

The thrust bearing above the transmission pulley needs some regular auto heavy duty wheel bearing grease.

Hi Guys - 
 
Almost five months later  - my Maytag is running strong  - many thanks to all for your help.  
For a couple hundred in parts, I was saved from spending about $ 1,500 on a new stacker.
I should have bought a new "Upper Outer Tub Cover Clamp" ... it leaked a little water for about a month
but the old clamp finally "seated" itself.
 
One last issue:
 
I had to take the tranny apart to fix the agitator shaft and bought new tranny oil.
After reassembling the whole deal -
 a very small amount of oil seeps out of the tranny gasket (bought a new one)during the spin cycle
and spins out to the frame walls of the washer - and onto the rubber hoses (original hoses) on the right side of the machine:
 
#1 How do you know how tight to tighten the bolts that hold the tranny together ?
#2 Will the oil rot the rubber hoses ? Again, this is a 25 year old machine
 
Thanks again to all - 
 
Still Trying (to save a buck)
