Eric those pictures look great
but getting the plate and bearing onto the shaft is my current task. I have walked away for the night to ponder on a good way to do it. I did try pulling it on with the pulley nut and a couple of big washers I use for pressing bearings but I don't think that is a good option since the tranny wants to spin.
Hi, my GE washer won't spin now. It will spin without load though, that is, with empty tub. It agitates fine, and I noticed when it agitates the inner tub rotates periodically at one direction as well. When it does spin with empty tub it gives out noise. I have replaced the tub bearing and seal but without any luck. Could this problem be caused by a bad transmission bearing discussed in this thread? Thanks!
There are a couple of issues I've found. They mention a 6205-2RS bearing. The bearing that came out of my transmission is also labeled a 6205-2RS on what was left of a seal. The problem is a 6205 has an ID of 25 mm (.9842) and an OD of 52 mm (2.0472). The ID is too small to go over the .9960 transmission shaft. You have to use a 6205-2RS-16 which is a ‘special metric’ and has a 25.4 mm ID (1.000) or use an English bearing 1.000" ID and a 2.000' OD to begin with and is much more common.
