Question about Washing Machines
If you take it slow and easy, there isn't a problem. These machines are relatively to repair.
First, see the Sears Parts Manual for your washer:\
Next, see the following:
See the section on removing the agitator(s) and the tub.
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.
Also, see the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for topload, direct driive washers.
