I know this is an old post but I was curious if akidd ever discovered what the extra bushing was for.
"...but I noticed a small 1 inch rubber bushing type piece laying inside as well with markings FSA BA-20 & 8316773 on it and cannot for the life of me find out what it is or where it came from"
I just finished fishing an undergarment wire out of my washing machine pump and found the same bushing just laying on the bottom pan. I have no idea where it came from or if it is important. The machine is back together and working OK so far. I was getting an "LD" error code.
Pictures of bushing attached.
Machine is Kenmore Elite Calypso Model# 110.21084000
