Question and Answers

Q:

I've replaced the tub seal bc it was leaking out of the outter tub. It still leaks out of center stem, (trany shaft). What else could possibly be the problem? WARE5260D1WW Ge Washer

A:

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry about the problem with your GE WARE5260D1WW Top Load Washer.  The tub seal is the seal that should prevent leaks through the middle around the shaft.  There is an o-ring around the screw that mounts the coupler.  I should be replaced every time is it removed.  The hub nut holds the basket in place.  It should be tightened by hand then tightened another 1/4 turn with a hammer and tool.   The bearing might cause a problem but a bad bearing will usually announce itself with a lound noise in the spin cycle.  Make sure the flat washer was not left out on reassembly.  From the amount of water you describe I suspect the washer was left out on reassembly.  You can reply below with any additional details for further assistance.  You can also have the problem checked and repaired in your home by a Sears technician.  Here is the link: Sears Home Services Washer Repair

Unfortunately, the only washer we re-installed mounted on the very bottom of the tub (transmission- adjacent bearing). The inner tub split ring was terribly worn and replaced as well as the seal. The strange thing about the seal is it seemed like I installed it upside down bc it left aprox a 2" gap between it to the bearing. So, I disassembled and turned it around- it seemed like a great FIT/ seal! Yet, it didn't work any better! The bearing makes no noise so I didn't even try to remove. The expensive part was returned. I'm told the entire tub has 2 be replaced. Youtube makes it look so easy to replace but reality: they are working on new machines. The expansion of the metal vs plastic tub friction= torch. I personally see no other method but total tub replacement.

Thank you for using us and I am sorry the do-it-yourself didn't solve the problem. Remember sometimes it is best to stop digging the hole. I totally agree about how easy new products come apart but the old always seems to have one screw or bolt that just won't remove.
