Aloha,

         I installed a new drive shaft, bearings, and seal and have a question on the seal. According to the instructions, the seal should be greased on the inside and adhesive applied on the OD of the seal and then installed into the tub. The seal is not level with the tub and is about 1/4" down into the hole. I also applied adhesive on the top of the seal and tub. My question is, is the seal suppose to seal the bottom of the basket also? I don't see any way the seal could seal the bottom of the basket if it is down into the tub. I was thinking that water couldnt enter the cavity inside the basket since it is pressing against the ss flange on the drive shaft and also because of the sealed wash plate bolt. I had two problems with my washer, one was bad bearings, and the second one was water entering the basket cavity and rusting the drive shaft (don't want this problem again). Sorry for the long post.

 

Mahalo,

doogdoog

no the seal does not seal the basket, water will get into that area, the new shaft you installed has a revised coating to prevent the rusting issue

Thanks for the reply Kohai and does the new shaft coating have a color to it? The one I installed looked like a regular shaft with a dark color so maybe it is not the updated shaft. I wonder why they don't make a SS shaft so rusting wouldn't be a problem? I know it would cost a little more but it would last longer and wouldn't get stuck in the basket hole maybe requiring a new basket.
