Tip

Whirlpool / Kenmore Washer - Drive Block


Whirlpool / Kenmore Top Load, Direct Drive Washers.

A number of the diagnostics and repair procedures for these washers require you to remove the agitator(s).

In order to get the agitators out, you need to remove the "Spanner Nut" and "Drive Block".

Many instructions call for a special spanner wrench to remove the nut.

However,

You don't need a special spanner wrench. (About $20 retail)

I've used a short 10" pipe wrench (About $9 also good for cracking walnuts) hooked around one of the tabs on the spanner nut and tapped the handle with a hammer to loosen it.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer (it's soft metal). Put a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap it up with a hammer.

Can,t remove nuts for trailing arm rear end.


Use a de-greasing spray like WD40 , apply for some time and then use a good set of BOX spanners or ring spanners with the correct size to wrench free the nuts. If jammed use a double end spanner with a hammer but with caution , not to damage the nut or allow it to be rounded off.

Where do I get the tool for Spanner Nut / Whirlpool top-loader washer.


You don't have to buy a special spanner wrench ($20) to remove the spanner nut. I've used a short 10" pipe wrench (about $9.00 also good for cracking walnuts) hooked over one of the tabs on the spanner nut, tap the handle with a hammer and it should loosen.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer. Use a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap up on the wood.

Changing the disc


There are two methods in changing a disk.
somewhere on the machine you will see an arrow showing you
the direction the disk travels when being used, the nut that holds the disk
on always undoes opposite to this.

normal method

unplug grinder, use the 2 spanners supplied with the grinder.
one will look like a normal spanner but thinner, this goes on the nut over the disk.
the other spanner has 2 nodules which fit in the holes on the nut under disk.
whilst holding the disk stationary with the thin spanner, rotate the noduled spanner
in the oposite direction to the disk rotation when being used.
on some models of grinder, a button on top of the grinder must be
pressed in, this stops the rotation of the disk when replacing disk.
This button performs the same function as the flat spanner.

emergency method

If you cannot find or have lost special spanner(s)
pushing the palm of your hand firmly onto the disk surface and rotating
the disk with a sudden **** in the opposite direction to that when being used
may loosen the nut. if the nut is tight hold the disk firmly and use an old
screwdriver in one of the holes and tap nut loose with a hammer on screwdriver.
last resort........if possible break the disk using pliers and remove all pieces.

putting a new disk on is opposite to method that you used to remove one.
