TUB SEAL

There are 2 Tub Seal designs, the original
Face Seal and the new Triple Lip Seal
introduced at series 17.
Face Seal
The tub Face Seal consists of the seal face
and seal body.
NOTE: All parts of the seal must be
replaced if either of the sealing surfaces
are damaged.
The seal face fits into a recess in the under-
side of the basket hub assembly. Also, the
seal body installs in the cavity on the top side
of the bearing and seal housing. The spin
bearing is located in a cavity on the under-
side of the bearing and seal housing.
Each of the two (2) sealing parts, the seal
face and the seal body, have sealing faces
which are brought into contact with one
another when the basket hub assembly is
threaded down on the drive tube. The
springs in the seal body exert pressure to
keep the sealing faces in contact.
Triple Lip Seal
NOTE:
The Triple Lip Seal and Bearing is only used with the High Torque Dual Drive
transmission. The 21001867 High Torque service transmission will include a Triple Lip Seal and
Bearing for proper matching of parts. The High Torque transmission will have An "HT" next to the date
code for field identification purposes. Do not use 21001868 Seal kit on older transmissions not de
signed to operate at higher torque levels. Always refer to Parts Pro or Microfiche for proper parts
ordering. The 21001868 Triple Lip Seal kit will include a sticker to be placed on the Outer Tub of the
washer to identify the washer has been modified with a High Torque Transmission and Triple Lip Seal
kit.
