Ge washer model wvsr1060a

I'm trying to replace the outer tub. I've got the top ring off but need to know how to remove the agitator and basket to be able to get at the tub itself. I also have the front removed and can see the bolts on the bottom of the tub but I can't get the agitator out.

How to remove agitator

That is a very old GE model. There may be a screw under the agitator cap which needs to be pried off. Even with the screw removed the agitator usually rusts or bonds to the transmission top. GE had a special pulling tool that was a metal ring that fit over the agitator with 3 set screws in it that you had to screw into the outer plastic of the agitator. A gear puller was then needed to pull the agitator off. Don't know if its worth it considering the age of the machine.

My Amana NAV2330AWW (S/N12279742EP) has been in service for six years. It has begun making a loud squealing, friction-like noise at the spin cycle. I removed the agitator assembly after being told it...


Firstly i want to apoligize for the quesionable advice,some on here or elsewhere on the net fixed their washer and suddenly their are experts!!
Now Then as you know your washer is made by Amana/Speed Queen and has no agitator dogs(a quick search of parts breakdown will show anybody that) it also has no spin tube (aka basket drive),the brake pads which it does have would squeal only when washer stops spinning if they were bad just like squalling brakes on or vehicle the are quite till applied if bad,what the most likely cause of the noise is going to be the tub bearing,it is on the bottom of the outer tub. The inner and outer tub must be removed,it is advisable if replacing the tub bearing that you also replace the tub seal since it may not seal correctly once taken apart and leak badly.The hub taht connect inner tub to transmission must be removed so ya can remove the outer tub it requires a special wrench which is not to expensive but nothing else will work. IF ya want to go ahead and repair this the part numbers are;
TUB SEAL 35-5655-1

unplug power
remove front panels
remove screws holding top to cabinet
remove plastic tub cover by down slightly and lift tabs
remove agitator
remove bolts from hub under agitator and remove inner tub
use that spanner wrench and a hammer on nut on hub and remove nut in counterclockwise direction by hitting wrench w/hammer
lift off hub
remove rubber tub seal
remove all springs from outer tub by locking on vise grips and pull springs off
remove bolts holding outer tub to the to tub support
pull off outer tub and set down so bottom is facing up
remove old bearing and install new old
reassamble in reverse order

this is a link for parts breakdown

to order parts order from sears or for a cheaper price by a little rearsch from

Good luck, if you have any question reply and ask away.

How to remove the washplate (agitator) to remove loose change .I have removed the plastic cap and removed one bolt but it still doesnt lift up, help The Impeller or agitator can be removed from the washing machine by pulling the top cap off of the impeller or agitator and removing the 7/16" bolt that is hidden underneath. This will allow you to examine and replace the agitator roller cams or lift the inner wash basket out to access the outer tub, tub sump, and lint filter for cleaning.

My washer agitator spins but the tub doesn't,also see metal insid

Repair or replace is always a judgement call. Most people will be better off replacing the machine. This is a rather big job, labor wise. On a difficulty scale of 1 -10, I'd give it an 8. The metal is the inner area between the inner drum and the transmission shaft, which has corroded and started to break apart. (located under the agitator) To repair, the agitator is removed, the washer front and top are removed to allow the washer's outer tub cover to be removed. This allows the inner tub to be removed. (caution: the big nut under the agitator drive spline is a left hand thread) Then, the drain hose, water level hose, suspension rods, and electrical to the motor are all removed to allow the entire drum to be removed from the washer to allow the inner tub to be removed. The actual metal part which needs to be replaced is then easy to replace by removing a few torx head screws from the underside of the inner tub.

Water leaks from main seal

Up front, this project requires specialty tools made by the manufature to remove the seals. You can check with your local parts store or the manufactures web site to purchase them. To remove the outer drum, you have to take the 2 panels off the front and remove the screws underneath that are holding the top of the unit. Lift the top up and lean it back. Next you have to remove the tub ring (the white plastic peice on top of the tub and basket) Next you remove the agitator. Underneath the agitator, there are bolts that hold your inner basket in. Remove these and pull out the basket. Next you have to use specialty Amanna/ Maytag tools to remove the seals that are sitting on top of the center shaft (transmission). Next remove all hoses going to the tub ( some will still have water in them) Lastly there are bolts all of the way around the base of the washer that hold the tub in place.
