CENTER POST ASSEMBLY

The center post assembly consists of a
plastic center post. A nylon agitator
bearing slips over the lower portion on
the center post body.
The center post assembly is secured to
the basket hub assembly by the spin
basket, and to the agitator shaft. A
small rubber gasket is installed in a
groove on the bottom flange of the center
post, and a foam gasket is placed
between the bottom of the spin basket
and the basket hub assembly.
The center post can be removed after
removing the spin basket, and the agita-
tor shaft "O" ring.

BEARING AND SEAL HOUSING

The die-cast bearing and seal housing
slips over a machined area on the lower
drive tube. The basket hub assembly
threads downward over the drive tube
and secures the bearing and seal hous-
ing.
The spin bearing and the tub seal are
installed in a cavity in the center of the
housing. The sheet metal tub support is
attached to the under side of the housing
with three (3) mounting screws. The
spin bearing has been pressed into the
underside of the housing cavity and is
secured by the tub support.
The center of the tub assembly mounts to
the upper flange of the housing with a tub
gasket and a tub seal installed between.
The bottom of the tub sits on, and is
attached to, the tub support.
