They make a basin wrench for tighting water supply lines to the faucet. You can find a cheap one it has a handle and the head has teeth and rotates from side to side giving you acces to tighten it from below.

Basin wrench should be at local hardware stores or lowes or Home Depot.

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.

Hi Jon,
Have a look under the bonnet and find out if its the master or slave cylinder which is leaking? Which ever it is take a 10mm tight fitting spanner to the pipe and carefully loosen it. The flats on the connector damage easily, so don't let it slip! After removing the pipe connector let the brake fluid drain into a container. If its the master cylinder don't bend the pipe away, but loosen the securing nuts with a 12mm spanner and remove the cylinder, taking out the pipe at the same time. When fitting the replacement, mount the unit in place and attach the nuts loosely only to keep the unit in place but not secured. fit the pipe into the cylinder and using your fingers to tighten, not a spanner, screw it in. The connector can be easily cross threaded and if that happens it will leak and not be able to pressurize. Once the pipe has been fitted by hand, tighten the cylinder into place and then finish tightening the pipe with a spanner. Once completed open the bleeding nipple on the slave cylinder and fill the clutch reservoir with brake fluid. Let it drip out through nipple into a container. Once fluid has begun dripping tighten the bleed nipple. For the last part you'll need someone to assist you. Ask that person to sit inside the vehicle and press the clutch pedal to the floor and hold it there....Open and close the bleed nipple while the pedal is down and repeat until pressure has returned to normal. Job finished

Also see the Whirlpool Service manual for these washers with diagrams of the springs.

The tub is attached to the triangular support from below with a spring and two screws.

Once the screws and springs are removed, you should be able to lift the tub up.

How do I install a second hand waher/dryer with limited piping?


1 yes all standard.2 Yes you can get a Y piece. 3 no you will only use water from cold. But you can solve that by going to a good hardware store or B.Q and gettein a self cutting tap for washing machines. You can fit this in just minutes, and do not even need to turn off the water supply. just make sure there is a clean straight piece of pipe to fit it to. 4 yes fit waste pipe to u bend under sink.

Kenmore 22642100 top load washer ... the clutch assembly is broken, so I will replace. but the tub is very hard to turn without the motor attached. Is this normal? or is something else froze up causing the...


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22642100

It's likely that the brake (which stops the tub) is engaged when the clutch / transmission is removed.

A tab on the brake is engaged by the clutch spring.

If you are going to pull the transmission in order to get to the clutch (Sears has a clutch rebuild kit instead of having to buy the complete clutch assembly), I'd pull the brake and drive tube assembly also to check the brake and springs.

Following is an illustrated set of instructions on how to pull the pump, motor, transmission and brake assembly.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If the springs are fine, the problem could point to the drive block and / or drive tube.

I'd pull the cabinet, pump, transmission etc. and check them.

See the following for how to access them.

It appears that the seal at the base of the tap is worn or the screw collar is loose - try hand-tightening it. It may cure your problem. Plumbers tape is a white tape that helps seal water pipe joints!
