Drum bearing trouble?
« on: September 28, 2009, 09:12:41 PM »
I am wondering if anyone out there knows the size of the bearings in this unit. I am looking to replace them with a timken or skf brand and not some cheap ones made in china. I would like to know this before I tear it apart. Also, where is a good source for the seal kit. This washer is only 2 years old with bad bearings are you kidding me maytag. My old Kenmore was just fine but the wifey had to have a new washer and drier and I settled for this piece of junk!    :bonk:

I am a home owner looking to save money. There is no way that I am going to spend over $400 for that tool. Being a machinist, I plan on making my own contraption that will out perform the tonytool hands down. I did end up finding the correct bearing numbers and ordered them through a local supplier.

I would love to see some photos of what you come up with. In fact if you have time it would be great if you could post photos of the whole repair job.

Could you post the bearing numbers for us?

So would this bearing be the one to get or is there a better one for this use?
