Client wanted their dead Maytag repaired not replaced. The 2 speed motor was on its last leg. The brake While was sguelling also. I quoted the motor job I also recommended installing a snubber ring & thrust bearing since I was going to pull the tube to quiet the brake.
I replaced the old style bearing with the new thrust bearing kit. I never had so much trouble getting the retaining clip back on with other units I had serviced. I used the thin washer, double checked that I left no old washer in place, There was no room for the clip in the slot, I filed down the clip ends to help it get started. I ended up having to beat it on & it still did not seat correctly. It is working & looks like it is going to hold for the duration.
Has anybody had any trouble like this?
