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.

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

How to remove the washplate (agitator) to remove loose change .I have removed the plastic cap and removed one bolt but it still doesnt lift up, help The Impeller or agitator can be removed from the washing machine by pulling the top cap off of the impeller or agitator and removing the 7/16" bolt that is hidden underneath. This will allow you to examine and replace the agitator roller cams or lift the inner wash basket out to access the outer tub, tub sump, and lint filter for cleaning.

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

Love my Cabrio,but have had to have serviced four times due to a coin or button getting from the tub into the pump and making a hole in the pump. I try not to let anything in, but I'm human . Has anyone...

Yes. The way to get coins out is to:

1) Remove the white cap inside the tub and then remove the bolt. Pull that section off.

2) use a putty knife to push in on the two locks about 6" in from each side that hold the top to the main body of the washer and lift up the top into the maintenance position

3) Unclip the hose from the tub and remove

4) There is a white ring around the top that is clipped to the outer tub multiple places. Pull it out of the clip and remove this.

5) Lift the inner tub out

6) At the bottom of the outer tub, there is a white plastic cap above the motors with two bolts to remove.

Once you've removed all these, you should have found all the hidden coins. Reassemble everything and then be very careful about checking pockets before using the machine!

How do we remove the tub seal assembly on a mat12cs commercial Maytag?

This is a not a job for the back yard mechanic. There are many things that need to be done carefully. There are 3 letters missing from your model number also... However the procedure is pretty much the same for all models.

NOTE you will need a special tool to remove the stem seal. Unless you have the special tool in hand don't even bother starting the job. Tell any appliance part center you need the tool for removing an Old style Maytag tub nut and stem seal.

1. Remove the front panel
2. Remove the cabinet top / lid by removing the 2 screws in the top front corner of the cabinet. and rotate the top up 90 deg. Be careful of the lid that will swing freely.
3. Disconnect the pump inlet hose from the bottom of the tub.
4. Disconnect the water injector hose from the tub cover.
5. Remove the tub cover
6. Locate the only hex head screw in the side of the agitator and remove it.
7. Lift out the agitator
8. Using the special tool you should have in hand by now.... Remove the wash tub nut and stainless steel washer under the tub nut.
9. NOTE the distance of the inner tub from the outer tub and then lift out the wash tub
10. Next is the stem seal. You first have to remove the allen head lock screw in one of the 4 faces of the tub nut. Then again using that same special tool remove the upper part of stem seal. Be careful when lifting it as you can actually damage the grease seal in the very top of the tub seal upper portion. Once the metal upper part of the tub stem seal assy is removed... there another NOTE of caution...
11. The actual tub seal has a carbon face on the top of it and if you crack the carbon seal it your machine will leak all of the time there is water in the unit.
grab the tub seal as the very base of the seal and gently rotate and lift it off the inner tub sealing surface.
12. Install the new stem seal.... by again gripping it on the bottom only and gently rotate and push it down into place until it seats level.

Reassemble in reverse order of disassembly but make sure you INSTALL the allen lock screw into the stem seal nut face. If you don't the stem seal will come loose and your unit will leak again. Final note is during re-assembly make sure the wash tub is centered.... rotate the tub once you tighten the tub nut and make sure it is not to elliptical if you don't get it right... the machine will gyrate with use in the spin cycle.

Shirt caught between the drums on my whirlpool cabrio washer

1. Unplug and take off the top of the washer.  There are two pressure clips in the front inside the crack between the top and body of the washer.  Use a stiff putty kniff to depress the clips and flip the top up out of the way.
2. Pry the top plastic shroud off the tub.  There are a series of plastic retainers clips around the shroud.  Pry them up and remove the shroud.
3. On the small agitator on the bottom of the washer, use your putty knife to remove the domed plastic cap in the center.  Pry it up with the corner of the knife to expose the nut.
4. Use a socket wrench to remove the center nut.  It will likely take a good deal of force to loosen it.
5. Once you have removed the center nut, get another person to help you lift the stainless steel inner tub out of the washer.  Place it aside.
6. In the bottom of the outer plastic tub, you will find the shirt (or other garment) caught in the drain.  Remove the screws on the top of the plastic drain cover, and lift up the drain cover.
7. Remove the stuck item(s).  For all the coins and small part that have fallen into the drain tub, you may have to open up the back of the washer and remove the drain hose to access the items in the drain.  Luckily the drain hose is held on with cheap hose pressure clamps, so you can do this relatively easily.
8. Call or email whirlpool and tell them that the washer is pulling clothes into the space between the inner and outer drums.  They will respond by telling you they have never heard of this problem before and if you need service, call "A&E Factory Service toll-free at (800) 771-3029."  
9. Be frustrated and vow never to buy a Whirlpool product again.  

Hope this helps

Kenmore top loading washer model 110-9259220 90 series has a very slow leak

Once you have the console open and the cabinet removed, take off your tub ring (the white plastic cover over basket) and you agitator. Unfortuneately, you're right there is a special tool for removing the 4 notched nut. I would check with my local appliance part store or order it from the manufactures web site. I belive they call it a spanner wrench. After that, your basket will lift out.
