The top spinner part can simply be pulled off by grasping it near its hub and pulling downward. Push it back on and push in the locking clip in the center.
The bottom spinner can be removed, First unscrew the center column. Hold the spinner with one hand, turn the base of the center column counter clockwise. Then lift column off. Then the spinner should lift off of the keyed white plastic base. Underneath it, on the neck off of which you lifted it, are two plastic washers that form a seal (supposedly). Good to clean these to make spinner rotate freely, but be careful not to break them taking them off.
If you want to go farther in, there is the point of a strange shaped plastic nut sticking up into the base of the column. If you remove this, and the 6 torx screws holding the strainer cap, you can get it all out to clean it up (I had bits of plastic bag in the slots of a 4-armed thing that apparently sprays the filter screen), and scrub the washer in the bottom. Remarkably yucky down there in a 10 year old installation...
Download the Service Manual and take a look at Page 37 “Tumbler Removal”You will need a #20 Torx driver to remove the tumbler the SM doesn’t call that out.It’s easy to remove, post back if you have any questions.Rich The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
if the unit is just a few months old the agitator has not seised the the shaft. the very top of the agitator should unscrew and with a little effert you should be able the lift the agitator off the shaft collect the jewlry and put it back together all should be find
I‘ll be watching your progress real close with the Tub Seal replacement.I’m going to run this machine into the ground and I’m sure I will develop a Tub Seal leak down the road.I have nothing to offer other then the mention in the SM on page 49 about making sure “”When installing a new seal, make sure the sleeve from the previous seal has been removed and discarded.””.Did you purchase or borrow this tool to remove the spinner nut Spinner Tool $25, or is there another way to remove the Spinner Nut?Good luck. Rich
When you say out if alignment, does it move up and down inside the tub. If it seems to be hanging down, then most likely a shock is broken underneath. If you can lift the metal basket up and down and hear a clunk sound the the rear bearing may be out.
I dont kow what you mean about a spinner? If your talking about the part in the middle thats caled a agitator. If your washer is the model with the plastic tub the agitator pulls up from the bottom. And I have to tell you it is not a easy thing to pull out. The hard gritty substance could be from your water. You might want to have your water checked. Hope this helps you.
I had the same problem, the 3rd level spinner falling off. Without getting into my saga story, save yourself some $$$.
-You will need a screw & washer to replace the plastic thumbtack. The screw will have to be able to screw into the female part of the spinner; the washer will keep the screw from falling out of the hole in the flat hose on the ceiling of the dishwasher.
-If you look closely at the spinner(the part that keeps falling off), you will notice it comes apart. With a flat head screwdriver, separate the 2 parts. (there are 3 parts all together; Keep the round center piece sticking out of the top peice)
--Remove the top drawer of the dishwasher to give you some room to work
-Remove the screw on the "ceiling" of the dishwasher(it is located further back from where the spinner goes) to allow the flat pastic tube to come down low enough for you to get in behind it.(set that screw aside in a safe place; you will put it back later)
-Remove the pastic thumbtack from the hole in the flat plastic tube if it is there & replace with a washer and screw.
-Take the top 2 peices of the spinner, together as assembled & screw the screw into the female portion of the spinner.
-snap on the 3rd piece of the spinner
-replace the screw you took out earlier, securing the flat plastic tube.
-place top drawer
Voila, you are done!! You just saved yourself $20+
