Wow! Success! Good job, Mike.

I just got my last parts today, punched out the Spinner Support inner bearings, cleaned it up and installed the new ones. The caged needle bearings were a little tough to knock out until I inserted a 3/8" drive extension and smacked it through with an old Phillips head screwdriver.

Tomorrow I re-assemble and test. It's too cold in the garage for that right now.

I am so glad I found this thread, and you, Dick. You're a lifesaver. Anyway, more tomorrow. Out,

Andy

Andy, I think that is what I used, see the pic of my bearing removal tools…..I then tapped in the caged bearing with a brass bushing that was slightly larger OD as that SCE-910 bearing.

“”I am so glad I found this thread, and you, Dick. You're a lifesaver.“” No way…..you and Mike did all the hard work, I was just sitting back having a cup of coffee.

You are almost done.... great job Andy!

Default Done!

Dick,

I finished the job today and tested it on Normal, Hot/Cold, Maximum Extract, and it seemed to work fine. It had 4 dirty towels in it. Nice and quiet, towels got clean, and they were quite dry, too.

I made a couple of mistakes today:

1. I tightened the bolt for the Pulley Clutch too much and sheared it off. Had to buy a bolt extractor to get it out and a 1/4-20 by 1/2" bolt to replace it. The bolt needed a new washer, since the stock washer was apparently collared on, and has a small hole.

2. I bolted down the Spinner Basket w/o checking how it aligned with the tranny. When I put the tranny in, it did not align with the Lifters. Had to undo the six bolts and re-align. For those doing this the first time: set the Spinner Support so that the Tranny mount hole with the arrow pointing to it is at about 7 o'clock as you face the machine, then set the Spinner Tub in with the "R" on the right and find the closest bolt holes for the six bolts.

3. Don't leave the tranny laying around with its hole facing down - it will lose oil.

In total, I paid $50 for the inoperative washer, about $175 for parts and misc, and now I have a nice rebuilt $1000 machine. I am happy. Also, it was a fun project.

Dick, you are way better than the Appliance Samurai, or whatever he call himself. Thanks again for all the help. If I'm ever in Pennsylvania, I will try to buy you a beer.

Best regards,

Andy

Hey Andy,

I’m glad it worked out for you. Yep the 3/8” pulley bolt is torque down to 8 foot pounds/96 inch pounds. I just tighten snug. When I sheared off one of my Spinner Bolts on tear down that was no joy.

Very solid points on reassembly, I wish I would have taken more pics on reassembly.

The person in the other DIY forum was just putting out bad info on the repair you and Mike just completed. “”Need to replace the Outer Tub to get new bearings”” Yea right ….you and Mike shot a big hole thru that statement.

That kind of info might cause an owner to put the machine out at the curb for bulk trash pickup before attempting to even consider a DIY repair. It’s a very good forum but I prefer helping FAV6800A/FAV9800A owners here on this forum.

You and Mike are more then qualified to work any issue this machine can throw at you. Good job and great working with you on the project.

If our paths should ever cross a cold one sounds real good………..Dick

Dick,

Am enjoying reading your post on the tub bearing and seal replacement. Do you have a parts list that you could post?
Seal
O-ring
Tub Bearings

Thanks,

Kyle

Kyle,
Do you have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service manual? If not Google this 16022808 Revision 0 December 2003 and you will find.

What are the first two digits of your Serial Number of your FAV6800A or FAV9800A?

Maytag redesigned the Outer Tub I believe starting with Series 12 and above machines. If your machine is a Series 10 or11 you will use standard off the shelf 6207-2RS Bearings. If your machine is a Series 12 or above you can still use 6207-2RS bearings but you will need to shim out I believe the lower Outer Tub bearing on reassembly.

You can get the Tub Seal and Tranny O-Ring from thru this site and verify parts from the exploded parts view of your machine at this site.

P/N below from the front end of this thread.

Qty 1 Tub Seal AP4035323
Qty 1 O-ring seal AP4034167

If you need to replace the Outer Tub Bearings;
Qty 2 6207-2RS Bearing 35x72x17 Sealed (note can be used for Series 12 thru 17 but requires some mod).

If needed the Clutch Pulley I would use for all FAV6800A/FAV9800A series 25001169 it's much cheaper.

A couple of forum members just went thru the Outer Tub rebuild with success. This included replacing the bearings in the Spinner Support assembly which is recommended. I hope we can help you with your machines issues, just shout out...........Dick

Dick,

Found the manual online and printed out the necessary pages, thanks for the information.

Went ahead and ordered the seal and the o-ring. Had noticed that although the tub spins freely, the noise the machine puts out had been increasing over the last few months. Based in this, will order and replace the two outer tub bearings.
Model: FAV6800A
Serial: 10886157EA (How do I tell what series I have from this?)

Last question, the spinner bearing, is there just one of these? Is it the INA SCE-910 caged needle bearing as shown in the post?

Thanks,

Kyle

Hey Kyle,

“”Found the manual online and printed out the necessary pages, thanks for the information.””

Good deal it’s a reference if you go through this post we hope to fill in some of the blanks.

See my clutch post Maytag Neptune load unbalance. for removal of the clutch and give it good inspection/cleaning and re-lube per that post.

“”Went ahead and ordered the seal replaced and the o-ring. Had noticed that although the tub spins freely, the noise the machine puts out had been increasing over the last few months. Based in this, will order and replace the two outer tub bearings.””

I feel that is worth doing you will breathe another 5 years of life into the machine. Once you remove the Spinner Support on tear down to the bearings you will have a good feel for wash water penetration as Mike showed on his Outer Tub re-build. The two forum members elected to also replace the Spinner Support bearings as I did. That will be the upper bearing 6002DU, replace with a 6002-2RS. The Splined end of the agitator shaft rides in that sealed bearing. And the lower end caged INA SCE-910 caged needle bearing on the square end side/Clutch Pulley side of the agitator shaft.

“Model: FAV6800A
Serial: 10886157EA (How do I tell what series I have from this?)”

1st two digits of your S/N is the series you have a Series 10 Machine. It will use standard 6207-2RS outer tub bearings. I found them for around $15 delivered to the house 18 months ago. Look for best price on the bearings.


“”Last question, the spinner bearing, is there just one of these? Is it the INA SCE-910 caged needle bearing as shown in the post?””

Yep it’s the caged needle bearing on the right and on the left is the 6002-2RS. They are not too hard to press/drive in just take your time.

Please shout out with any questions or concerns. If I don’t respond right away I’m sure two of our most recent forum members will give you a hand........Dick

Dick,
Thx for your reply a couple of weeks ago about repairing my Neptune TL washer. Due to health/job reasons, we just activated the American Home Shield warranty and they paid to replace it, rather than repair. We ended up getting a Speed Queen. Thanks for all your expert, thorough, and patient guidance and care. You guys rock!
