Question about Washing Machines
I am trying to remove the tub so I can change the tub seal. But there is water still under the inner tub. You can't see it, but it sloshes around when you manually spin the inner tub. The drain coming directly from the outer tub has been removed and is empty. How do I get to that water?
We dont have much call for top loaders in the uk, but if they are like front loaders, there should be a filter at the bottom either on the left or right. if so, pull the machine forward and then tilt it back against the wall. not too far in case it slips forward and lands on its back.
remove the filter cover and then using a bowl and plenty of towels, tilt it forward and let the water run out.
hope this helps

I do believe that when you remove the four bolts, it should come out. Sometimes you have to use a little force and shimmy left to right to get it to break loose (no hammers please) especially if you have a lot of scum build-up from soap. They can really be a bear sometimes to remove. Maybe put your foot in the bottom of the tub and hit it on both sides to work it free. Good Luck!!! Jim

It is held on by a spring that stretches around the outside of the seal. The seal simply hooks on to a small lip so all you need to do is start in one spot and push it down and away. Then just work it around like removing a bike tire until it is fully removed. Be careful of the spring. It is hooked together so it may unhook once some of the tension is removed and snap around.

For those with water on floor after wash, check my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something clogging drainage area at very bottom of the tub. I couldn't see the sock that was stuck in my FP's drain when I looked from the top between the white outer tub and the wash tub--everything looked fine. Then I removed the black motor/white plastic housing piece--Tip back washer and you should see this black electric motor/white housing on bottom. see my post for how to remove and check for plugged drain. it's really pretty easy.
don't know about outer tub holes, but glad i don't have that problem.
i hate my fisher paykel washer/dryer. i can't wait to sell this house--i will leave them here and get a new front load Duette for my next house!
