Tub Bearing Kit Specifications

This kit is used on 2-belt washers. It is recommended to change the seal kit at the same time. The tub bearing kit fixes issues with leaking, loud noise, excessive shaking/moving or if your pump is not spinning. The tub bearing kit is fastened in the middle of the outer tub of your washer. The tub bearing ensures the inner tub is spinning effortlessly. If the rub bearing is faulty it might lock up and cause the washer to stop spinning.

    Will this kit fix oil leaking from under the agitator in to the inside of the tub?
    For model number LAT2301AAE
    Hi Cindy, Thank you for your question. To check where your oil leak it coming from you will have to first remove your agitator. Here is a video that will show you how: https://youtu.be/2jVTAq1Buvw . If you see oil leaking out from the spindle coming from the transmission, you will need to replace your transmission. Good luck with your repair.

    On this older Maytag model washer, the agitation cycle works ok. After the wash cycle and the rinse cycle, when the inner tub starts to move to drain the tub, there is a loud squawking noise that usually lasts about 30 seconds then stops while tub is still spinning. Small leak under the unit from somewhere. What parts should i replace? Thanks.
    For model number A612
    Hi Bob, thank you for your question. There are a few parts that you should check to see if they are the issue. You should take a look at your belts, tub bearing, rear bearing, damper pads, and your mounting stem and seals. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

    Washer has been shaking violently during spin cycle. Tub mount brackets and springs look good. I replaced snubber/damper pads, no significant change. I then changed the tub bearing kit, again no significant change. I then changed the mounting stem/ tub seal kit, looked worn but still no great change. Now we are noticing that the spin does not achieve full speed and sometimes there is a squeal at the beginning of the spin cycle. Belts appear ok, no cracks, not shinny. At times the motor seems warmer than usual. Thank you for your help.
    For model number LAT9616AAE
    Hi Chris, Thank you for your question. If you have already replaced most of the parts listed to fix this issue, I would check to make sure that the washer is level. Also, make certain you are not overloading the washer as this may cause an issue with the parts. If the motor is getting warm, I would check it to see if it is working correctly and replace it if it is not. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    Our Maytag washer makes a loud noise during agitation but not spin.I have removed the agitator and filled with water, also a loud noise without the agitator centre piece. would this be a mounting stem or tub bearing issue ??? much appreciated kate
    For model number lat9606age maytag
    Hello Kate, thank you for your question. Yes, the most common issue with the noisy agitation cycle is a bearing or seal. We would recommend replacing both the Mounting Stem/Tub Seal Kit Part Number: PS2351899 and Tub Bearing Kit Part Number: PS2347235. I hope this helps!

    Replaced the tub seal and bearing to fix a leaking problem. Washer now shakes aggressively during spin cycle... only at high rpm's. i followed the video instructions to the letter. washer did not spin off balance prior to the repair. any suggestions?
    For model number LAT2200
    Hi Paul, Thank you for your question. If the washer is shaking and moving, There are some parts that you will need to check to see which ones are causing the issue. You will need to check the damper pads, the belt, the levelling legs, the centering springs, the tub bearing, the glides and springs and the mounting stems. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    My washer is leaking. I found a round i believe brass ring broken in several parts. What does this sound like?
    For model number maytag washer LAT8816AAE
    Hello Tom, Thank you for your inquiry. It sounds like one of the bearings or part of the mounting stem/tub seal kit, both of which we would recommend to fix your issue. Hope this helps!

    The tub bearing isn’t going back in flush by using my foot. What else can I do? Can I put a little w40 on it so it slides in easier?
    For model number LAT9704AAE
    Hello Mindy, Thank you for the question. Some have used a block of wood and tap it back in with a hammer or you can try with a rubber mallet. Thank you for your inquiry, good luck with this repair!

        Washer Leaking and Spin Cycle stopping frequenly
        * Remove front Panel
        * Remeove two screws that allow the top to hing up.
        * Loosen set screw on agitator (1/4" socket)
        * Remove Agitator
        *Loosen spanner nut from mounting seal with hammer and punch remember to loosen, turn clockwise
        * Remove Inner Tub
        * Losen Mounting stem with Hammer and Punch- Remember to loosen, turn clockwise
        * Remove Boot seal with hands
        * Remove bolts from the three brackets that attach to the outer tub
        * Remove Outer Tub hoses
        * Remove outer Tub. CAREFUL, I cut my hands on sheet metal when outer tub broke free and came up
        * Knock Outer tub bearing out with large block of wood
        * Cut bearing sleeve off of the transmission with a drimmel tool and cutting wheel. It was siezed on and would not turn off. Also, first tried to chisel , but was too difficult
        * Cleaned area where bearing sleeve came off with fine sandpaper
        * Put small amount of non-permanent thread lock on transmission (bearing area) before installing the new bearing sleeve because the sleeve is not pressed on and I did not want it to turn freely
        * I did not but new bolts for the outer tub 3 brackets, but noticed that they needed to be sealed. So I bought some rubber washers at hardware store
        * I also used some stuff called CLR to clean some rust off of the outside of the INNER tank
        * I replaced the O-ring on the top of the agitator shaft
        Also, on the agitator shaft: To really do it right, I probably should have changed the agitator shaft because the old seal wore grooves into the shaft. I took my chances and cleaned it up with some fine metal sandpaper. I could not get the worn grooves completely smooth, but did not want to take off more material as I thought it may cause a leak. We'll see
        * I just used a hammer and punch to retighten the mounting stem and Spanner nut. REMEMBER COUNTER CLOCKWISE TO TIGHTEN
        * This was not too bad if you are somewhat mechanically inclined. I could have got a new washer, but quite frankly, I get more satisfaction from seeing the old one keep working
        * One last thing...and this is mostly for the younger guys cause the older guys already know it. CLEAN EVERYTHING on the washer...make it look like NEW and tell your wife how much you saved. Make sure you have the parts and tools to do the job within a timeframe that you do not have to go to the laundry mat and do not leave a big mess. This advice will definately pay off.
        GOOD LUCK

        Water leaking from the underside center of the tub. Only on the rinse cycle.
        I want to mention only the difficult parts.
        The removal of the retaining ring/nut (which is under the agitator) . After 10 + years, it was very hard to move this part and it was eventually broke it to remove it. WD40 was used but not effective (to much calicum build up). You must turn the cone shaped piece (located under the inner tub) clock wise to get it to remove. A spanner wrench was not used to remove this. I used a punch and a tack hammer. We could not remove the old tub bearing (closest to the shaft), so we just cleaned it up with emory cloth and used the new tub seal/outer bearing. Spins great but have not been able to check the water leakage problem yet.
        Caution: there are two dark colored ring (very thin) that go back on top of the rubber collar. These must be reused. These are hard to see. I pushed the old tub seal/bearing out with the end of a 2x4 (very slowly and carefully). I put the tub up on two of the 2x4's, for clearance off of the floor and used the third to knock the old bearing out. Old machine are very messy.

        Leak from tub and burning smell when initiating spin.
        There is one good description already posted. I would add:1)If the the nut holding the inner tub doesn't loosen easily just split it with a chisel and don't waste time. 2)Don't order extra washers to remount the outer tub, they come with the bearing! 3)While disassembled I ran the spindle on spin to make sure the brake assemlby wasn't the problem. It ran quietly and smoothly. 4)The inner bearing sleeve was stuck on the spindle and didn't want to free up. I used a rotary tool to cut a groove in the old bearing sleeve then chiseled on the groove edge and it split nicely. It was very brittle. The washer seems to work well now. Next time I see a leak I am going to repair it right away!

        Leaking water from bottom
        I followed Dan from Mason OHIO instructions.They were perfect. I have a different series washer so I did not need the washer and retaining ring. I used 2 lengths of 4x4 to support the tub when smacking the bearing with the narrow side of a 2x4 to drive it out. You hit it from the inside of the tub. When installing the new one, use the wide side of the 2x4 to drive it flush.

        Very old washer was leaking oil and grease drops into the wash water.
        Followed the procedures recommended for replacement of all the parts included in the Tub Bearing Kit and the Mounting Stem/Tub Seal kit as illustrated in a detailed, 32 minute repair video for the Maytag A606 washer which is available on YouTube. Many difficulties were experienced in the disassembly procedures due to extensive corrosion of tub bearing and tub stem parts (the washer is 47 years old).
        I was not successful in using a special tub wrench that was purchased to break loose the old tub mounting stem and its threaded lock nut. The old tub mounting stem, lock nut, and the tub bearing race had to be cut off the threaded support shaft using a saws-all electric tool. Finally, corrosion on the edge of the tub caused problems with water leaks once the tub top and its rubber tub seal ring were reinstalled and the washer was put back into operation. The bottom line is that it may be questionable to attempt major repairs on washers that are 40+ years old and have any extensive corrosion in internal, mechanical parts.
