Fisher Paykel bearing replacement tool P/N 502009 required for this procedure (may come w/instructions).


Will also need (2) bearings P/N 425006P, lip seal P/N 425009P, and a spacer P/N 425007.


(Replacement parts are relatively inexpensive, but the tool can run $150-$200)  Some techs are able to complete this repair without the tool, but it can be tricky.


Another repair site I ahd also consulted said no special tool needed? Not trying to refute your answer, just trying to figure this out. I cannot find a source or picture of the tool. I can find the bearing/seal kits no problem. Where does a technician buy the tool? Also, I was able to get a great service manual for the matching dryer and fix it, ( photos and detailed instructions), but there does not seem to be one for the washer?? The service manuals I have found online do not even discuss how to replace the bearings or to check for trouble with them. I really want to fix this washer. My husband is very mechanically inclined and I read directions well. Just need info, tool and parts. Thanks for any help you can give!!!!

Well, after looking at the prices of new washers.......


I ordered the hub kit part yesterday and overnighted it. Installed it and the washer works beatifully!! It was obvious when comparing the two, that the old white inner cog that slips over the spline shaft was seriously worn ( 7.5 years old). So, for $64, part and overnight shipping, I am once again doing laundry - Oh Joy!


Not sure what you mean by soaking with nappy cleaner??


Thanks for ya'lls help!

Thanks!! Screw holes are not stripped. Very seldom use soak cycle - just when I want to bleach some really dirty whites.


I assume by ya'll's answers, that you believe the problem to be the plastic cover that fits over the Spline Shaft? I will order in the am and replace. Worth the $30 to try. It is obvious that the broken hub was allowing the agitator to rotate free of the basket. Can I assume that once the basket and agitator are connected again, that I should get a proper spin cycle?


Will update with the results....

Understood. I did remove the agitator so far. It appears that the spline shaft is part of the problem. The cover has broken where the screws fasten.


Removed the basket. Drive shaft and cogs look ok. Plastic on bottom of basket and bowl shows significant rubbing/wearing.
