Re: Spinner support - HELP
Really???? your trying to get this off yourself? i cant believe you have the courage to try this repair!!! when these units are making an airplane taking off noise then you are at the right place. also sometimes the support will break and make a thumping or banging noise in spin. seriously if you dont have warranty on this then you should just go buy a new washer, if it is under warranty, maybe a lifetime warr on the innertub, then we dont try to remove the bearings, just replace both the inner and outer tub. the outer tub comes with the bearings in it already. be carefull to install the seal properly so the new one wont leak. also if you call maytag they may help you with free parts but you might have to pay for labor to have it done by an authorized repair company.

From what I can see, I would start by placing a piece of tape on the coin and on the drum (on the left side of the coin in your photo). You do not need to really press / seal the tape against the drum. I'd fold the very end of the tape over so it can be grabbed easily. This should keep the coin from falling behind the spinner.
Next, insert a straight blade screwdriver just above or below the coin (the wider the blade the better) and use it like a wedge. You can push the screwdriver tip in the gap to open up the space or gently twist the ***** driver just enough to pry the spinner away from the drum - slightly.
While maintaining pressure or the twist on the ***** driver - use you free hand the grab the folded end of the tape to ease it off the drum and pull the coin out of the seam. If you did this right, the coin should be on the end of the tape and you can pull out or release the twist of the screwdriver - and neither the spinner or drum will be deformed. Good luck!
how do you put the lid together just below the area of the top? Friend went to wash spinner and pulled on top and now I can't get it to sit flush anymore. It seems there a two plastice prongs inside top that must be released. Help please. Love this spinner but now can't use!
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.
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.
