Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Hello, I am trying to remove the spanner nut in order to remove the basket. my question is, there looks like there is a nut on top of the spanner nut. i am thinking this is unique to an older maytag. since i am having a devil of a time at removing spanner nut (with spanner wrench), I think, what i think is another nut on top of spanner nut needs to be removed. How do i remove it? I can send a photo. the top of this mystery nut has a slot on top at one side only. any and all help is appreciated! -caryl p.s. i am a small appliance repair tech; would be glad to help with any repairs you may have. :-)

If your machine has the plastic nut, I use a pair of channel lock pliers to remove it. It usually will break but you will need to replace it any way. To get the basket support off, I use a piece of flat steel and large hammer. This will need to be replaced also. The new basket support has a seal in it that takes the place of the plastic nut.
I assume you are replacing the bearing and seal since the bearing wearing is usually what causes the seal to leak.
Post back if you have any questions.

Hi, The proper tool is P# TB123A.
You can also use a coal chissle and a hammer. Be careful that part of the spanner nut doesn't break off and hit you with the chissel. It takes a preety solid hit to losen the nut.
Hope this helps. If it does, please rate my comments and how I did in helping you. You can order the wrench as well as any other parts on my web site
