Leaking Kenmore Washer – How to replace Shaft Seals.

This is a twelve-year-old Kenmore top-load washer. Model No. 110.26922502 – Type 111. This is a Heavy Duty – King Size Capacity with a 3 speed motor and 6 settings. The focus of this video is to demonstrate how to change the main Shaft Seals as well as the main Tub Seal.

Two symptoms that surfaced after the seals began leaking were:
