I have a Kenmore Oasis washer# 11028087700 and need to remove the shaft from the outer tub. I have the whole machine apart, but am having trouble removing

the shaft. Please provide any information or diagrams necessary as soon as possible. Thank you!

Kevin: Installing this kit requires special tools to remove and install the drive shaft kit and the Sears tech will have to order the kit. It's a Sears's policy for this specific kit; however, you can likely find this kit on the web.

was wondering why I cannot purchase this kit without having a technician come to my home . I cannot afford to have them come in and tell me what parts I already know I need .

Joey, thanks for the useful advise in this thread. I have a few additional questions. I have a Kenmore Elite washer, model #110.27087602. The inner hub that fits around the drive shaft is stripped. In fact, I was surprised to see that the drive shaft itself was also stripped under the inner hub. (I would have thought that the drive shaft would have held up much longer and better than the inner hub.) At any rate, can the drive shaft be replaced without ruining the existing bearings, which are fine? If so, would you suggest I replace the bearings anyway as long as I'm replacing the drive shaft? Additionally, if I do replace the bearings, is the tub press tool assembly (pictured in one of the images you posted previously) essential or just a convenience that I could do without? Also should there be lubrication between the inner hub and the drive shaft? And finally, do you have a part number for the inner hub? I found the drive shaft, but can't find a number for ordering a new inner hub. Thanks much.

Andy - With apologies to Joey, when fitting the new bearings please take every precaution NOT to put any pressure on anything other than the outer race. To do so could 'bruise' the races and the balls/rollers leading to shortened bearing life. The link below is informative in this regard. Good Luck.

Andy: The tub seal is part of the shaft assembly kit as shown in the image I provided in the last response. I don't think you can get the tub seal separately at this time. Before the shaft kit was available, the complete outer tub assembly with the shaft, bearings and seal came as one complete assembly.

thanks, one more thing, any idea where i can get the center tub/shaft seal that goes on underneath plastic hub? it is a rubber coated disc about 1/2" thick that slides on over the shaft. it seals the outer tub off and prevents water from getting into the bearings. i cannot find this part anywhere. the original part # is 8545956 and it has FSP on it but that doesn't show up anywhere. i miched the part and the OD is 2.21 in. the ID is 1.33 in. and the width is .58 in.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The shaft can not be driven out from the top down. I added a couple of images below with the removal procedure.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Definitely having to work on the Washer yourself can be a challenge. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the unit. I was unable to locate information that would be helpful with regards to your question at this time. Your expert will answer within 24-48 hours with detailed information. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
