Duet WFW9410XW00 Bearing and Tub Seal


                                               
Duet WFW9410XW00 Bearing and Tub Seal

Whirlpool Duet WFW9410XW00 owners… If your washing machine is sounding like a freight train then you will need to swap your bearings and tub seal. Once you notice it getting louder it is best to quit using it so you don’t cause more damage to machine.

If you happen to damage your Duet’s support bracket (spider) shaft you can remove it from stainless steel inner basket and take it to a machine shop to be repaired. They could install a sleeve or weld up then machine back down to correct diameter for new bearing. If the seal seat on the shaft is damaged then I don’t know of any repairs at this time for those since they are glued to the support bracket shaft.

The WFW9410XW00 bearing replacement is performed without any special tools and you should be able to complete it in 2 - 3 hours. You will need some room to disassemble machine because the tub is large and you will need room to separate it so you can take out the inner basket and support bracket. It also helps to remove the 3 counter weights to make the tub more manageable.

You can order your WFW9410XW00 tub bearings and seal at http://duetbearing.com/page9.html. These kits are shipped via US Priority Mail.

Here are some additional models this kit will work on:

MHWE400WJ00 , MHWE400WJ01 , MHWE400WR00 , MHWE400WR01 , MHWE400WW00 , MHWE400WW01 , MHWE450WJ00 , MHWE450WJ01 , MHWE450WR00 , MHWE450WR01 , MHWE450WW00 , MHWE450WW01 , MHWE550WJ00 , MHWE550WJ01 , MHWE550WR00 , MHWE550WR01 , MHWE550WW00 , MHWE550WW01 , MHWE950WW00 , NFW7600XW00

led lights - Litepods Night light system

led lights



Here is an led light you can install in your home to light up your hallways and stairs. They are powered by 6 volts and can have a battery backup added for more safety and convenience. You can add up to (40) Litepods Emitters to a system which should cover most homes. These are considered low voltage lighting and night lights. 

To install you simply run 22-2 wire from one location which could be in a closet or basement. That location should have 120 VAC outlet nearby or at least one close enough to run a 22-2 wire to so you can connect to the power supply. When running your wires... you can home run all of the wires from each Litepods Emitter or you can daisy chain them. You can also run a 22-2 wire from your basement to attic then attach to a LPTB board with is a terminal block board so you can connect the Litepods Emitters to the LPTB board. You will drill a 3/4" hole with a paddle bit and you can then pull the wire through. Next, you make your connections with the B connectors. Once you make all of your connections you can then power up the system.

Don't forget to run a 22-2 wire to a widow for the light sensor. You could keep the Litepods on all of the time if you cannot conveniently run a wire for the light sensor since they draw very little power. With the LPLS board you can use a switch, relay or open collector transistor to turn Litepods on and off if you don't want to use the light sensor.

Below is a typical system you would need to get started.


















In hallways, I would recommend placing the Litepods Emitters every 3 to 5 feet depending on how much light you would like.

I hope this helped you.

How to change LED in a Litepods Emitter - Nightlights for kids




www.litepods.com - This video demonstrates how easy and quick it is to change an LED in a Litepods Emitter. The LED Emitters normally ship with a white LED installed. You may decide to change the color or go with an RGB LED which changes colors and are cool for nightlights for kids.

These Litepods Emitters are night lights that can be installed in bedroom ceilings near the door to illuminate that area so if they need to get up and go to bathroom in the night they can without turning on any lights. Imagine walking through your house with no lights on and not tripping on children's toys or going to the bathroom in the middle of the night without turning on bright lights that could wake your significant other...

You can install these LED Emitters in the ceiling or along stairs or under cabinets since they are considered low voltage lighting.

Kenmore Elite HE5T Bearing and Tub Seal Replacement



Kenmore Elite HE5T Bearing and Tub Seal Replacement
















Kenmore Elite HE5T owners… If your washing machine is sounding like a freight train then you will need to replace your bearings and tub seal. It is best to stop using machine as soon as you hear it getting louder so you don’t cause further damage to machine.

If you damage your Elite’s support bracket (spider) shaft you can remove it from stainless steel inner basket and take it to a competent machine shop to be repaired. They can install a sleeve or weld up then machine back down to correct diameter for new bearing. If the seal seat on the shaft is damaged then I don’t know of any repairs at this time for those since they are glued to the support bracket shaft.

The Elite tub bearing replacement is performed without any special tools and you should be able to complete it in 2 - 3 hours. You will need some room to disassemble machine because the tub is fairly large and you will need room to split it in two so you can take out the inner basket and support bracket. It helps to remove the three counter weights to make the tub more manageable weight wise.

You can order your Kenmore Elite HE5T Duet tub bearings and seal at http://duetbearing.com/page7.html. These kits are shipped via US Priority Mail. We also offer shipping to other countries as well.

Maytag FAV6800 One Way Clutch vs One Way Bearing video



Washer Tub Bearings - Here is a video that compares the one way clutch to the special one way bearing. Your FAV6800 washer will have one or the other. You can replace your bearings and tub seal when they start to get loud.

It was believed that you could go by the first two digits of your serial number to determine if you had the special bearing or one way clutch. However, experience tells me otherwise and that is why I created this video for you.

There are two kits for you to choose from depending on if you have the one way clutch or the one way bearing. Watch the video...


If you need other appliance parts you can call 1-800-369-0999 and give them your model and serial number and see what they can do for you.

Leave your comments below and share with your family and friends that may have clothes washers so they will be aware that they can replace their bearings and tub seal and save a ton of money!
