Youll need to "pop" the main top.. then unsnap the outer ring that cvers the outer tub. if you look at the center of "agitator/ or bump plate depending on model" theres a small cap that will come of fand reveal a 7/16 screw remove the screw, and then oyull be able to lift the entire inner basket right out to retrieve any debris.

All outer tubs on most Washing Machines these days are sealed.
Therefore you cannot split the tub to get inside and change the bearings. instead you have to change the whole tub assembly as a complete unit. Not an easy job.
If it is a front loading machine: If you lift on the inner tub from the inside of it the outer tub should raise with it. They should feel pretty solidly like one unit. If there is a sloppiness to it at all the tub bearings are shot or the Spider bracket is busted. If the inner and outer tub feel solidly together look for a sock between the inner and outer tub. They can roll and twist up and cause real havoc.
If it's a top loading machine: Check for wiggle of inner and outer tub. If no wiggle check for sock as above.
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub.The banging noise is due to being unbalanced. You may need to replace the balance ring on the top of the drum inside the washer. Watch this Video to see if this is how your machine is acting.
Joe, remove panel to get access to outside of outer tub. You will see a "bell" with a soft 3/8 clear line coming from it. That is your water pressure hose and it goes to a switch in the control panel. Remove one side from the bell housing, outer tub, and check for gookus. Clean out all obstructions. If there isn't any obstruction in the line, you need a new pressure switch up in control panel. There is a small chance that there is something on the inside of the outer tub which is obstucting air bell but I don't see this very often. Hope this helps,
Hi, Please check the hose connecting the tub. Is there some thing stuck which is not allowing the water to drain. Most the of the washers have a catch sleeve inside the drain line before the drain pump. Remove the lower front panel to access the pump and remove the large hose from the drum. Inside the hose is the sleeve, take out the sleeve and clean it. Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. In this case it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. In case it clean there, check the outer tub port- open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Let us know if you were looking of something else.
if it smells like rubber burning then i would suspect a belt is worn or slipping or somthing has jambed the basket from turning .. the belt is not expensive ..labor of course would be extra .. if the burning smells like insulation or a strong electrical burning smell then you may have a bad motor .. those used to be about $70 + labor .. no telling what they get for them now ...
you mention that the smell came from inside ... do you mean inside where the cloths are (the tub) or inside the cabinet (outside of where the cloths are) ...if the smell was coming from inside the washing tub .. then i would suspect something cought between the inner and outer tubs .. if the smell is not from there then the first suggestions above are good ... bras and slippers and such are good for getting cought .. check where the movable tub (with holes) meets the outer tube (no holes) .thats at the very top of the tub .. ..make sure nothing it cought there ...
Assuming you are talking about the boot seal that attaches from the tub to the door of the unit.
There is an inner and outer spring that holds the boot into place.
There is no easy way to do this.
Best way to do this is to replace the boot on the inside of the of the body, (Tub first) This will snap into place around the outer ring of the tub. The spring will be really hard to get into place. suggest something that will not cut to use and istall the spring,
Out is the same effect with the smaller spring match arrows.
Open the door and then reach inside the washer and grab the front of the inner tub with your finger tips. Can you wiggle the inner tub inside the outer tub? If so, your spider shaft supporting the inner tub is cracked and needs replaced. It is quit a job for the average handyman. Most often the professionals mustr be brought in for this repair.
You have to replace the whole tub. that shaft and the seal and bearing are all part of the tub. You would have to take out the basket first. Its a pretty big job but I have done it a couple of times by myself . You need some space and time. good luck if you need more info just let me know.
