    You need a spin basket tub block and nut and a whirlpool tub wrench.You can get that at the appliance store when you buy the tub block .On the control panel locate the two phillips screws at the back or front of the control panel at the bottom where the panel meets the base .Back them out far as you can .Pull the control panel forward and tilt it back(im assuming you've unplugged the washer first) you will see a connector that goes to the lid switch unplug it .Next you will see two gold clips (notice how they go) pop them out with a screw driver .Tilt the washer body back toward you standing at the front and walk backwards with it to remove it .Then unsnap the splash ring from the outer tub and remove it.Pull the rinse cup from the agitator under that you will see a cap remove it .Then you will need a 7/16 inch wrench with a long extension to remove the agitator bolt and pull the agitator.then you will see a spanner nut made of

    aluminum that's where the wrench comes in remove that nut and pull the spin tub under that will be the tub block tap it off the spin tube and slide the new one on .Replace the spin tub and nut using the spanner wrench tighten the nut tight as you can by hand then hit the wrench handle with a hammer to get it tighter.Then reverse the procedure to reassemble.When you replace the body of the washer look down through the lid opening the front of the washer body goes under the base and the sides go on top along the edges. print theese instructions its really not that hard that will fix it

Washer makes very loud noise during the spin cycle.


Sounds like you have bad bearings. If you use powder soap thats the problem. Powder soap doesnt dissolve all the way and gets into the bearings and eats them away. you will most likely have to have a service technician come out to replace them(Its not just bearings they sell you more than you need and you have to take everything apart... big job). After that use liquid soap.

My washer wont go through the spin cycle


I poked at the sensor (sensor that is is the safety lid switch) which is on the right hand side of the top of the machine. The water pumped out and it went into spin cycle. When I released the switch or lever to activate the sensor, the cycle stopped. I then proceeded to unscrew the sensor switch. I carefully I pushed the sensor pad up (It was stuck). Screwed the switch back in place and ...Wha la! She is running like a top. This sight is very helpful. I love not having to pay anyone to fix my problems! Kudos!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you!

Loud Noise - Spin Cycle


If the washer is making a squealing noise, the problem is more likely to be the basket drive. If it is more like a rattling sound, the centerpost bearings are probably worn out. Open machine's rear panel and spin the basket manually by turning the drive pulley, to find out from where exactly the noise come from. Defective part should be replaced. Good luck !!
