Whirlpool Super Capacity Plus washer drum removal

I have a Whirlpool Super Capacity Plus washer, don't know how old but several years. It's leaving a residue on the washing, and I think a filter needs clearing out. I cannot find out how to get the drum out to get to where I think the gunk is - looks to me as if it might need a special tool to unscrew the metal collar below the splines on the drive? I have tried a hammer on the four cut-outs on the circumferance of this part without success. I am sure that if I can shift that the drum will lift out ...

What kind of residue? Grease? Sometimes a buildup of fabric softener will look like grease. If so, removing the agitator and inspecting it will show a buildup of fabric softener on underside. Rinse with hot water to remove. If you need to remove the inner drum, you will need a special tool for that. Try a local appliance parts business. They might loan or rent one, or sell you one. No filter to clean though. Grease should not be present as there is only the shaft of the transmission coming through a seal into the outer tub. Not likely to have grease migrate into tub. Fabric softener will be present on outer tub as well. Remove with hot water and plastic dish scrubber. Rinse and re-assemble washer.

A good option would be to try putting it on a short cycle, and leave it to run its course, most washers and dryers will unlock and open afterwards.

Have a Whirlpool Super Capacity washer in which the drum will tilt during the wash cycle and spill water. If held to center, there is no leak, and the cycle completes without difficulty.

WHAT IS THE LOAD CAPCITY SIZE OF WASHER MODEL 110.20702990


On newer, and sometimes a little newer, Whirlpool and Kenmore (Kenmore is made by Whirlpool) considers a few things in determing capacity. Most of the inner baskets are the same size, but they also add in agitator action into the mix. A Kenmore with an auger top agitator would have higher capacity than a Kenmore with just a normal agitator, even though it has the same sized drum. So a super capacity washer would have theoretically less CLEANING CAPACITY than a super capacity plus. The agitator action is actually what determines capacity on these models. So, with that in mind, cubic load should be about the same on both units. Sorry that I had to go into "Bill Nye The Washer Guy" mode, but thats about the only way to describe. Let me know if I can confuse you any more haha. Seriously though, if you need further help or info, write back, and will try to get you some other information. Remember, this theory only works on top load "normal people" washers, not the front loaders.
