Jun 14, 2015Washer Repairs (Part I)

Broken bearing bits
Broken bearing bits

Thursday night the washer started smoking.

Obviously that’s not a habit to be encouraged, so I took a quick look and determined that the transmission support bearing had broken up. Today I stripped the washer down, removed the transmission and ‘rescued’ these loose bits of bearing I found littering the inside of the washer.

Now we have to decide whether to repair (C$250) or buy a replacement ($700-$800). The question is, how long until another bit breaks?
