How do I remove inner tub on Frigidaire top load washer FWS845GC

I have removed outter tub top shroud and the 5 inner tub attaching bolts.
The tub will not lift out. Do I need to use more elbow grease because it is stuck, or, are their more bolts or hardware that I have missed?

Thank you for any help you can give

I had the same problem

The trick is that the 5 bolts must not be removed.
Instead, the tub must be lifted with the metal base over the shaft.

the inner drum is most likely broken. go to select appliances then select parts enter model number and you can get a blow up. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Disassemble Whirlpool duet

Yes, but it is quite involved if you're up to the challenge. The following link explains the step-by-step details involved in removing the wash tub and spin basket:

I know this link is for replacing the rear tub bearing. The process is still the same, however, as it involves removing the entire tub shell assembly. There are no special tools required, but an electric screwdriver with socket attachments will make the process of separating the tub shell halves go much faster. I would also recommend that you order and replace the tub gasket if you are going to separate the tub halves. You can find a replacement gasket at Just type in your model number and look under the "Tub and Basket" heading for item number 10 (part #8181673). Other items to consider (but not mandatory) are the shocks for the tub (item number 23 - part #8182703). The shocks twist to release and they can sometimes break when you attempt to remove them. I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any questions, please let me know.

SOURCE: Trying to remove inner tub of a Kenmore 60 series washer.

my friend had same problem with his machine. instead he filled it with boiling water and dumped a bottle of no name brand liquid plumber in and let it run through. the smell was fierce but it cleaned it out. this is probably not the smartest or safest way but it is easy. oh one more word VENTILATION!

SOURCE: I am trying to clean out all the gunk that has

there is a special nut called a spanner nut. it is about 1 1/2 inches and needs special tool to remove it to get the inner tub out of the unit. you might be able to remove it with a pipe wrench and then you can get access to the outer tub.
i would recommend just using a washer cleaner and trying that first.
these chemical cleaners are designed to remove residues and are much easier then taking the unit apart.

Fridge washer GLWS1349AS0, have inner tub out, trunion lifted, not off yet due to slight rust. How do I change spin bearing and tub seal? thanks.

To remove the trunion totally reattach the inner tub to it and twist the inner tub,with the tub attached it gives you much more leverage to twist and pull the trunion off. After its off pull the small brass ring with the O seal in it up the transmission shaft and pop the tub seal off. To replace tub bearing remove the bolts on the side of the side of the outer tub off from the tub support and pull tub off of trans. shaft. to remove bearing flip tub upside down and remove the 2 screws from the tabs on bearing and turn tub back right side up and use a screwdriver on the top of bearing and knock it out of outer tub,push new bearing in by hand most of the way,being sure the tabs on bearing is lined up w/notches on tub and use old bearing placed on top of new one and drive it down all the way,reinstall screws into tabs. All the surface rust should be sanded off of trans shaft. Re install outer tub and secure with the bolts into tub support. push main tub seal into flange with normal palm pressure,install new brass ring and MAKE SURE O RING DOESNT POP OUT OF IT ( a little dawn,palmolive joy liquid dishwashing soap around inner part of o ring inside of brass ring will help it slip on easily) I use the old brass ring and press it over new brass ring to assist in o ring not popping out,once new brass ring is inserted ok and oring in place remove and discard old brass ring. Reistall trunion and inner tub ECT ECT ECT

We have a Frigidaire top loading, 8 cycle, heavy duty, super capacity 2 speed washer and it does not have a model number on the inside lid. The washer is leaking at the point where the drive shaft connects...

the part needed to be replaced is the main tub seal and it is not hard to do. remove the agitator the you will see a collars that has two bolts on the side of it this keeps the inner tub attached to the drive shaft you may also have one that is broken.
lift the washer lid. then remove the tub ring that is on top of the outer tub once this is removed you can remove the inner tub.there will be a brass ring with a black rubber piece in the center of it this need to come off in order to get the tub seal out. it maybe a little difficult toe remove but it just pulls up. you may have to use some liquid soap on the drive shaft to make things easier to slide up and off

withoout asking why , heres how to remove the inner tub, simple enough. theres abolt in the top of the agitator,(pop the little cover with a screwdriver). the agitater pops off, insert a screw driver under the maintop perhaps 3 inches in from both sides and pop the clips the main top leans back. Unsnap the white cover from around the outer tub and lastly there will be (2)) 1/2inch screws screwed into asolid block at bottom of agitator, thay are locking the inner tub to the transmission shaft. note the flat spot on the transmission whish the block is resting youll need to reinstall it at same point

Clunking noise and vibration during final spin cycle

For all those who say they recently bought the machine, the cause of the machine "walking across the floor" and vibrating violently is the packaging bolts on the back of the machine that were supposed to be removed when the machine was installed (why it says remove packaging bolts in the installation manual). These packaging bolts hold the suspension steady and firm during shipping but MUST be removed before operating the machine. When these packaging bolts (I think there are four total, some up to 6 inches long penetrate the rear of the machine) are removed, they allow the suspesion to absorb the vibration.
