Maytag Topload Washer SAV405DEWW

15 posts in this topic

Ok I know I am gonna get thrown under the bus about this washer, but the person I am fixing it for insists on me fixing their washer....so please re-frame from rock throwing......

 

I have this type of seal head.....I am trying to track down tub seal kit for this washer. The problem was a loud roaring spin cycle...shot bearing from a leaking tub seal.

 

Now I have notice these washers come in two types of seal heads......one solid piece w/a triangle housing (what I have) for the bearing and the other is open style #11 on the B&W pic.....I need the seal for the triangle housing solid piece

 

Just need help in the right direction....thx!

OK I have the parts on hand that you posted....but looks like they will not fit my application. If I install the seal mentioned above then I will have 3 bearings installed....this does not seem right...

 

1 inside the tub, 1 on the seal head and another on the tranny...

If I cant find a seal then my last resort is cut the seal head over to the 1st lip to match the one in the diagram....if I do that then the bearing may not seat up w/the tranny......

There's 2 to choose from. I'm assuming that's why RegUS ask in post #2 "is this the one?"

And then, pasted the picture. You'll have to choose which you have.
