Maytag A9700 spanner nut

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. :-)

SOURCE: Trouble removing the seal nut and the long screw that hold that bottom agitator

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.
Thanks/Mike

My opinion is no. You need those tools for reinstalling so you dont break the parts you are installing

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

HOW DO YU GET THE SPNNER NUT KENMORE 90 SERIES WASHER? I DO NOT HAVE A SPANNER WRENCH.


You'll really will need the spanner wrench for the spanner nut on the basket drive block. If you try to make a tool or use some other method, you risk injury and possibly damaging your washer basket.

The spanner wrench is made by Supco, part #TB123A. It has various other part numbers from the appliance manufacturers. It is compatible with Whirlpool, Maytag, GE, and Kenmore. Most Kenmores are made by Whirlpool.

If you want the wrench same day, call local appliance shops and ask if they sell the spanner for the Kenmore Series 90. I got mine from a local shop and paid $13.

You could also buy one on eBay or another reasonable online source.
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313&_nkw=tb123a&_sacat=0&_from=R40

Or Google search: TB123A

Don't pay more than $20 including shipping.

You can always sell it on eBay once you are done with it. It won't lose much value being used since it doesn't really wear out.

You'll need a hammer too, preferably with a hard rubber head, or use a wooden mallet. If you use a steel hammer, be careful when you strike the spanner wrench to loosen the spanner nut. Wrap the steel hammer head in an old washcloth or rag. You don't want to accidentally strike the porcelain enamel lining of the basket - it will chip and that can lead to rust of the metal.

I have a Whirlpool Calypso and I have removed the washplate, lock nut using spanner wrench and u joint assy. I want to remove the metal inner basket so I can clean all the scum inside the outer wash...


Once you remove the agitator, then the nut with the spanner wrench, the basket should lift right out. It may need a little encouragement but it will lift out. I clean the out side tub with a putty knife to get the bulk of the scum off then use some cleaner like 409, or purple power to get the rest off. BE careful around the tub seal around the shaft, you don't want to damage it and have to replace it.

At the end of each spin cycle, the washer makes a very loud sound like thunder that is audible throughout the whole house. What could this be?


That sounds like a bad drive block. I think the part # is 389140. Double check that though. It's a cheap part, and not that hard to replace. However, you will need a Whirlpool spanner wrench. I won't go into each detail of breakdown unless you want me too, just let me know with a re-post. But basically, once the cabinet is removed, pop off the tub ring, remove the agitator, remove the spanner nut with aforementioned spanner wrench, and slide basket up off the gearcase shaft. The drive block may stay on the gearcase, or it may stick in the basket center. The drive block slides onto the gearcase shaft, (only goes on one way, due to slots) the basket slides onto the drive block, and the spanner nut is then tightened onto the drive block. The rumbling noise occurs when the block is worn in such a way that when stopping, the block (and basket) slides up and off the metal tabs on the gearcase. If that sounds too involved, call Sears...they have a pricing thing right now where the labor is a max of $129. So with the part it would only be about 150. Otherwise, just take it slow. Hope that helps!

Haz2557 maytage washer vibrates excessively


Here is an exploded view and if you roll over the area it shows more detail. Roll down to the bottom of the shaft below the tub and you will see damper pads. I beleave this is what you want to replace.

Maytag Washer: How to Remove Tub


Under the agitator is a flat nut with notches in it. this nut requires a spanner wrench that will fit into the notches. You can use a large channel lock plier. rotate the nut counter-clockwise. under the nut will be a seal. remove the nut and the seal and pull up on the inner tub. to replace you'll need to replace the seal. if the nut isn't too chopped up, use this to refasten the tub.
