Newbe to the forum, I have a frigidaire Ft Load Washer 417.39012891, replaced the belt 9 months ago and now have an issue with the bearing on the pully end of the motor.  I was able to remove the pully with a battery terminal puller.  The four bolts that hold the casting with the bearing have a unique head, an oval protrusion about 6mm long and 3mm wide and 3mm high, a specialty tool is required, probably designed to deter repair.  Has anyone successfully replaced this bearing?  How did you remove the four uniqe headed bolts?  Perhaps the Samurai stocks the bearing. Thanks in advance for responses.

Just following up on the post.  I removed thew pully with a battery terminal puller,  I cut the four bolts holding bith ends of the motor together and pulled the bearing with a puller.  The bearing was picked up at a local distributor, 6202-2Z-L38-C3, for $12.  I pressed the bearing into the motor shaft,  Drilled out the threaded ends of the four bolts and used 10/24 threaded rod and Nyloc nuts to re-assemble the motor, A Dremel was used to make clearance for a box wrench to tighten the bolts.  All is good.  This was a time consuming repair and if the machine was newer I would have just replaced the motor.

The only time I might attempt something like that is if the motor wasn't available and I had lots of time on my hands.  Good job.  Is it all back together and working?

I would have just replaced the motor but I applaud your resourcefulness. Good job getting it going for  only 12 bucks.

Thanks for your follow up and feedback.  Yes, the machine is back in operation and now sounds normal.  Again, I agree, a motor change would have been the fastest way ti go.

 

Take care amd thanks again for your support of the weekend repair populous,
