II suspect it is bad design, imagine that. We are having the same problem. After replacing the nut and using lock tight on threads, it worked two days and loosened again. My next attempt will be to "stake" the nut in place. This involves using a chisel and hammer to lock the nut in place by deforming the nut and shaft with a 90 degree dent. A second alternative will be to drill and install an allen head screw to lock shaft threads to nut.

Having trouble removing the tub from a GE washing machine


One trick is to put both hands 6" - 12" apart on the top ring of the inner tub and push down like you are performing a chiropractic adjustment. Sometimes they will break free. Don't give up too easily, but don't expect it to work either (ha ha). Usually you have to dig 'em out. If they've been in there long enough they can really get caked up with cement like soap residues. It is water soluble and not affected by penetrating oils. In fact penetrating oils slow the process down. Use hot water. I have a harbor freight steamer that i have been using that speeds up the process. Sometimes they are bad enough that i use a small pocket screwdriver to dig into it so the water can get deeper. It will come out if you are persistant and can keep a cool head. It's not that thick of a build-up. You can do it. Periodically stop and try the first method i described. I have never tried, but think that perhaps filling the tub with water to just above that area so that it can soak overnight might help a lot. Of course you'd have to clamp off the drain hose if you've already pulled the tub from the cabinet. Good luck. Let me know if it gives you too much trouble, i've done lots of these.

Agitator keeps rising up and washing getting stuck/twisted underneath


The nut that holds the agatator on has come loose and is properly floating around in the agitator.Or it just needs to be pushed down to lock it in place. At worst the bolt and nut has rusted away. (repair man)

It jump when it getsn on its last spin and the letter ul appeares we have lever it off but it still keep jump the tub what can you tell me to do to fix it


Adjust your washer's front legs and lock the nut, it has another nut to do this. After you hav locked the legs, try to rock the washer with your hands, it should not rock. Another thing to check will be inside your washer, after taking the power off the wall socket. Check to see if some springs or the shocks (dampers) have come loose. This normally happens when the load is not even, that is when you hav a big sheet in one part of the washer tub. Spread out the clothes evenly before you commence the wash.
To see if washer is firm: hold the front portion of the washer, the 2 corners and try to shake it, if it does not move, it is fine.

Pl rate me 'very helpful' if helped, thanks

Our kenmore elite washer makes a loud loud noise when spinning and the tub has alot of play from side to side when not running. Does this maching have a nut on the bottom holding the tub in place?


You can remove the agitator to see if it has a nut holding the tub on, but from what you are saying the transmission bearings are worn out. Loud noise and side to side play would indicate this. If the agitator does come off you can see if it has a nut that will tighten the tub down. I have never seen one as most are all one section tub to transmission. Keep me posted on what you find.

Maytag Neptune MAH3000AWA seems to be rubbing


I suspect that you have a leveling bracket come loose. Many of the Maytag washers also use a large concrete block fastened underneath to help balance things. Look to see if yours is this type. If so then the steel rod holding thinge that holds it in place may have come loose...should be easy to put back correctly but will require some muscle. Most of the Sears Kenmore units have springs that can come loos from their connections and require re hooking but I do not think you have this type of unit for a Maytag. Hope this helped.

Belt won't stay on the pulley


These belts are really sensitive. Try messing around with it. Making srue that the belt isnt coming off the big tub pully. You tub pully isnt loose is it. Make sure the bolt that hold the pully onto the tub is tight on. Make sure the pully isnt loose. Inspect it for any small craks where that boltt tightens up. If the pully check out ok. Check the small motor pully as well. Make sure that isnt loose or anything. Pull on it if if its loose then thats you problem.. Inspect both pullys good. I would assume belt is in good shape right? If both pullys check out ok, then i would try to get the belt on and just mess around with it, spin the pully and if you se the belt starting to slip off adjust it as you keep spinning the pully....hope this helps

Violate shaking in spin cycle


Yes you need to remove the agitator to do this and there is a nut that holds the tub down these come loose alot from the factory alot of times you can remove the nut and put lock tite on the treads and re tighten and be fine but in most of the cases you need to replace the spanner nut and the split ring under ther tub at the same time to take care of the problem the split ring isnt that hard to replace you just need to remove the splash gaurd from the top of the tub and several brackets that hod the header on and just lift inner tub out and there on the transmission is the split ring it looks just as it says just a little ring with a split in it replace these and it will solve your problem but you will need a special tool to tighten the nut back due to the room in the tub (center nut spanner tool for a g/e)

Big nut that holds tub and agitator in place keeps coming loose


Try to put some red thread lock on it. Red is permanent and blue is not permanent. I would use the red if you do not need to take apart again.

Good Luck
