Cabrio washer. Just purchase seal only?

5 posts in this topic

I hope this is the proper way to ask for this. I have looked elsewhere to no avail. I do many bearing repair jobs on a variety of machines and have found that purchasing bearings localy is a LOT cheaper than kits. I even found an LG guy that will sell me the seals that are only available to LG service guys.

Here is the problem, I can't seem to find JUST the seal for certain makes of washers.

 

I ask now, Is there a source here or does anyone know a source to purchase JUST the seal for the Cabrio washers. I don't want the kit #W10435302

Any help would be appreciated.

Good luck with that if you don't want the kit, You will spend half a day getting the old bearing out, it's not worth the time and aggravation just to save a little bit of money.

Thanks Scott

From the repair guide and videos It looks like whether I use my own bearings and find a seal or use a kit will be about the same amount of work. (bearings need to come out either way) If that's correct then I think it will be worth it. Off the shelf bearings run around $10.00 each and most seals that I can actually find run up to $15.00 so $35.00 compared to close to $100.00 makes it a doable repair.  I'm retired and have nothing but time. I rebuild appliances for low income families so I REALLY need to work at keeping cost down.

Thank you for your input

Maybe you could re-use the old seal, try adding an o-ring, or o-rings, under the lip of the seal and fill the entire void under the seal with synthetic or marine grease. It would be cheap, might be a worthwhile  experiment.

 

Are you using the factory tool to press the bearings into place?
