Tub stuck on shaft

I am replacing the transmission in my GE-WPRB9220 wash machine. I have removed the 1-11/16" nut, but I can not get the tub to slide off of the transmission shaft. Any suggestions?

Take a piece of 2x4 lumber and after soaking tub bearing that the tub is mounted on have someone hold the tub/motor combination up off the ground and take the 2x4 and hit the top agitator shaft so as to drive it off the tub,you have to hit them HARD sooner or later it will fall off the shaft its just rust holding it on

SOURCE: kenmore 80 series leaking....plastic tub cracked on the bottom

if you removed the large nut (round with four notches cut in it ) then tub should be free. sometimes these "rust together" on the hub. wd40 and a hammer to knock it free. try rocking the basket to break free. you did remove the tub ring(white plastic part on top), right?

If is the nut that's on the bottom of the tube, use a piece of hardwood a hammer to slowly remove it, but counterclockwise.

Vbsr3100dawn washer water leaking between tub hotpoint


Hi, there is a tub seal (WH02X10032) that can be replaced, however, the tub nut generally requires the GE tool to remove. The nut is hex shaped, but is made of a pretty soft alloy so it can break if you use a regular wrench. Once the tub is out, you may also find that you need a new tub nut and split ring.

I have a GE Select Top loading wash machine that is making alot of noise during the spin cycle. 99/2000 model


If it sounds like a jet plane taking off, a grinding noise, it is the bearing. This is pretty difficult to replace. If you do attempt it, you MUST replace the inner tub seal. This is leaking onto the bearing, causing it to go bad.

GE washer Model WDSR2080D5WW Transmission shaft wobbles


If you can't loosen the nut, you can break it with a hammer and a metal chisel. Tub nut is cheap. Grease on clothes = new transmission time.
By the way, after you remove the inner tub,.... you have to take the entire outer tub assembly out of the washer, flip it upside down, remove the yoke that holds the motor onto the outer tub, and pull the transmission out through the bottom of the outer tub.
