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.

Admiral ATW4475 Left by prior owner of home. Unpleasant Odor of moistness / mildew? / gunk emanates from tub despite careful cleaning including the inside rim. What should be checked and cleaned?


The basket / inner tub is actually what you see when you look in the unit. The inner tub connects to the transmission and sits inside the outer tub. Unless you take the whole top off and remove the inner basket, it is almost impossible to clean the outer tub. You can try to use the oem cleaning method and this is to run it with no clothes, on the hottest setting with one cup of bleach in the water.

The drain line is probably clogged. 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. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port.

Washer has a very musty smell. Trying to raise the top to clean inner tank but it will not budge. Does the top raise on the WJSR2070B model. Do not want to break it


Yes, but I would advise to try a washer cleaner before going through all the work to dissassemble your machine.
Use the longest, hottest cycle. You may have to run the cycle with a cleaner twice to remove all the built up soap scum inside the washer.

You could check out http://www.smellywasher.com/ for one possiblity. Others are " Washer Magic " or these: 73b1c2a.jpg fb3071a.jpg
If you still want to tackel the dissassembly: The washer front comes off by using a putty knife to push in the two retaining clips on the very top edge, where it meets the washer top. Now you will be able to access the screws which hold the top down. Of course to remove the inner tub, you still have to remove the lid switch, the agitator, agitator drive, the left hand threaded nut below that, the wire connection to the motor, the four tub retaining straps, the tub to pump hose, the four suspension rods, the tub cover and the water level hose. Then you would be able to remove the inner tub and pressure wash out the outside of the inner tub and the inside of the outer tub, if you bring the tub assemble outside. TRY THE CLEANER FIRST !!!!

Kenmore washing machine washes but does not release the water.


If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from 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. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

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!

Maytag Washer: How to Remove Tub


Under the agitator is a flat nut with notches in it. this nut requires a spanner wrench that will fit into the notches. You can use a large channel lock plier. rotate the nut counter-clockwise. under the nut will be a seal. remove the nut and the seal and pull up on the inner tub. to replace you'll need to replace the seal. if the nut isn't too chopped up, use this to refasten the tub.
