Good job on the tear down Mike. When I tore down my Series 10 same deal lots of mold.
As for the bearings the INA–SCE 910 Clutch Pulley end of the Spinner Support. I punched it out it and tapped in the replacement with a bushing I had that was about the same dia as the outside race of the SCE-910. I drove out the upper 6002-DU bearing first.

I would clean up the SCE-910 caged needle bearing with WD-40 and see how it looks. Once cleaned up see if the agitator shaft spins in it and the upper 6002-DU bearing OK. I did it just for the hands on and I’m sure it was over kill for my re-build.

I lubed the SCE-910 caged needle bearing with some water proof lithium grease I used on my boat trailer hubs. Maybe someone on the forum could recommend a good water proof lithium grease to re-lube that bearing.

As far as the Outer Tub Bearings if the Spinner Support spun in them OK I would let them go but that’s your call. As you mentioned you’re at the point where you could punch them out now and drive in a new set and be done with it.

Hi I noticed on the outside of the outer tub down low there appears to be 2 holes (one on each side) maybe weep holes? It looks like some rusty water dripped down both of them but I'm not sure what they are or whether it dripped while cleaning. Do I just tap the shaft on the square (clutch side) to get to the bearing? Right now the shaft is still in the support. Thanks again.

Yep you have the Spinner Support out on the work bench. You can pull the agitator shaft out of the Spinner Support from the splined end.

Maybe a couple gentle taps with a wood or plastic mallet at the squared end and it should come right out. I’m sure the agitator shaft will be nasty. I hope no rust on the cagend needle bearing squared end side.

Not sure.... let me look thru my pics and see if I can ID. Do you have a pic?

Going to bed shortly will follow up.

Talking Update on bearing replacement

OK so I took the spinner shaft out and it doesn't look too bad but I want to change the bearings anyways while I'm at it. What's a few more dollars? When I took the tub seal out it had lots of rust under it and the rubber seal was hard. So I think both the tub seal and trans o-ring were bad. The upper tub bearing was covered in rust so I tapped both bearings out for replacement. I removed the rubber seal from the upper bearing to see what it looked like and water was dripping out. It still had blue grease and no rust inside so maybe it would have lasted awhile but for less than $20 I figured why not just rebuild it. I ordered the clutch, o-ring, and tub seal today and I will order the bearings later when I get home. I need to get all the part#s together. Thanks again I couldn't have gotten all this done without Dicks help. I took pictures and will post later. Mike

Default 2 holes in outer tub near bottom on fav6800aww

Upon further inspection it looks like the holes may be vent holes for wash tub bearings. This might be a good place to look while it's in service to see if it's leaking with out removing anything but the front panel. If you see water or rust dripping from holes it means water has gotten below the tub seal. I think if you remove the clutch and see rust you will have to replace the tub seal and o-ring or it will ruin the new clutch again in short order.

The last picture in the first group shows the rust coming out of the hole on the outside of outer washtub just above the bottom.

Mike,

Are you going to replace the Spinner Support bearings? I see some rust ont the agitator shaft end. How did the caged bearing look in the Spinner Support at the Clutch Pulley end?

Excellent pics!

Check back in after work tonight and take a good look at your project.....Dick

Yes I ordered all four bearings tonight. The shaft had rust on it but the bearing still had black grease with no signs of rust but we decided to just rebuild everything while it was apart. I guess it could be a week or so for the parts so I will be cleaning parts in the mean time. I also have some rust on the door and the edges of the bleach and softener ports so I'm going to wire brush and touch up paint. The project isn't very difficult with the right tools but time consuming.
