Way off topic - washing machine

Thu Jan 22, 2004 3:47 pm

Anybody familiar with removing the tub from a washing machine so I can replace a leaking seal? It is a Speed Queen Model AA5421 and as near as I can tell, the seal where the tub mounts to the hub on the transmission shaft has a slow leak. I have located a hub seal kit but I'm not sure where to start dis-assembly.

Here's a website:


Hope this gives you the info you seek.

PS: Replace the drive belt and water hoses while you've got it apart. See ya!

Carl - Thanks! That was the information I needed!
There's another free cub ride in it for you at the next Cubarama.

Hey, Sonny,

How long did it take for this problem to show up? Your Grandmaw's Speed Queens have given at least 20 years of fairly trouble free service. I did replace an internal hose maybe 5 years ago. Built like a Cub!

I think it's a 1990 model. Not too bad!
