kenmore front load 3.1 cu.ft.
« on: August 10, 2013, 08:25:43 PM »
Hey everyone, am new to this so here goes. Kenmore front load 970c40062 started sounding like a jet engine and was leaking a little bit from the drum. Found this part # at Sears of all places...26970134453200. This is the complete plastic tub with stainless steel tub and spider and gasket and pulley all assembled for the low price of $207.99 can. Just the back half tub with bearings is $500 at most appliance parts places. So, you know the spider will corrode sooner or later...call Sears parts at 1-800-361-6665 and give them the part number. They can check the closest Sears parts counter to you. This "tub kit" is compatible with frigidaire, whirlpool, and few others.

That's actually a Frigidaire tub assembly. In the US that is used in 417 source Kenmore units. The price is usually around $650.

You are absolutely correct, it is a frigidaire made for Sears. This "tub kit" fits many makes and models. For better or worse, it is much cheaper in Canada. :)

Perhaps by rocking the machine too and fro and using a "spirit" level harmony can be achieved. The designers should incorporate 2 front wheels on the drum to coexist with the rear bearing, as to prolong the evenness of spin and load.
