#312485 kenmore elite / stubborn bearing

Posted by vunger1 on 01 February 2015 - 02:29 PM

. Look at all the grease/rust, she just kept using it even after it started the growling noise. beat on this thing for 30 minutes, never could get the outer race of the inner bearing out. Finally I just ordered the outer tub. I had to stop the noise, because im sure the customer was beginning to question my ability to finish the job.

replaced bearing kit also and all is well, as advised by those here at appliantology.org, better to replace stem seal kit and bearing kit. You dont save much by doing only the stem seal kit. Also if rubber seals on stem seal were bad,it would only make sense that the rubber seal on the tub bearing couldnt be far behind.

                                                                                                                      Thanks to all, for the help!





P.S.  The shaft pulled out because the plastic retainer ring had been removed, by: "yours truly"

Putta tha retaina backa where a it go and as a wise Samurai once said "Konnichiwa", back in bidness.

Oh yeah, upon checking the connections at the terminal box,the white wire pulled out of the wire nut with very little force. So i tightened up both wires/wire nuts, which were copper/house-to-aluminum/dishwasher.

   I wil try to get a pic of the wiring in the house, it comes through the floor , straight under the dish washer, you have to slide the dishwasher frame over the romex(super tight fit,like you might cut the wire with the frame and cause a short tight)to get the unit under the counter. Actually 2 runs of romex come through the floor in the same hole, one for the dishwasher and one for the outlet located on the outer wall of this island in the kitchen.(same island where dishwasher is installed)

You have established that you have line voltage. If this is correct, jumper your push to start switch. Turn the dryer on timed dry.Make sure door switch is closed. Put your meter probe on neutral and the other probe on timer terminal C (Bk). You should have line voltage. From there take your lead from C and put it on terminal B of the timer(LBU). Keep your other meter lead on neutral. You should still have line voltage. If not the timer contact between C and B is bad. You will need a new timer. Hope this helps.

turned out that the LBU showed no voltage,Thanks for the help ,checking to see if I have another dryer with same timer ,I will post back once it is for sure fixed.
