The washer was not leaking any water before I fixed the agitator. Now agitator works fine, but some water drips on top of transmission.
So I am backtracking the work I did to understand what is causing the water leak. Here is what I remember:
Here is a diagram of my FEX831FS4 washing machine:
The questions I have are:
Since I did not separate transmission from outer tub, then is it likely that part #16 (the tub seal) is actually fine? Perhaps I pried something a little too deep with screwdriver? Could it be that all the gunk collected these years was preventing the leak from happening? Maybe I can just refill it with gasket maker in place where I pried with screwdriver?
Is it possible that the water comes down through the agitator shaft through the gap that I introduced by forcing up the drive block?
Just wondering, would something like ATP-205 rejuvenate seals if they were damaged? That liquid kinda work for gaskets in car. Though toxicity and getting dirty clothes because of that fluid is another concern why I would prefer to double check with folks that have experience fixing appliances.
This is old washer and I want to extend its life a little bit before getting a new one on Black Friday sale.
