Kleenmaid hub seized

The aluminium hub on my kleenmaid washing machine KAW793 is seized to the spline. Tried using a gear puller but that just cracked the hub. How can I get the hub off?

    Thanks for the suggestions,
    have tried WD40 did not really help. Did't have anything to heat it with. I got it off using a similar idea to your suggestion, I drill a lot hole in the hub and then split it apart with a cold cheisel.

The only way to get it off is to cut form the circumferance to the center avoiding the shaft. I take it you have tried heat and WD 40?

SOURCE: Hello-How do you remove the

Do you have the assembly off the car? If you do, do you know anyone with a press? That will move the splines of the CV joint after you properly support the flange hub. If not, you need the type of puller with a yoke that accepts the wheel bolts to attach it to the hub. Then you can apply enough force safely. The hub is very tough, you can wind on a lot of force. If you are attempting to change a front wheel bearing you WILL need a press anyway. It can be done with BIG hammers but you risk damaging parts.

SOURCE: How to remove knuckle / hub from front axle?

most likely the bearings in the hub are rusted to the axel. If you work at it you can use a point air chisel to push the axel shaft out you will have to replace the bearing in the hub. worst case you could take the hub and axel off together and press the axel out in a press. either way you will have to replace the hub bearing.

How to remove the rear hub


If this is independent rear end then you may have to use a puller to get the hub of the axle as it should be splined on and may be rusted on the splines.

Service engine soon light is on and service vehicle sonn light is on just replaced a wheel bearing in right front tire they came on and cant get them off tried everything


Wheel bearings are in hubs and not tyres and that has nothing to do with engine service lights.. So I will try to guess what you are asking. IF you have a front wheel drive vehicle and you cannot get the hub off the drive axle it will be because the drive splines are seized in the hub ( rust) or the bearings are tight in the shaft. You may need a puller to push the axle back out of the hub to get it free of the axle . You can then remove the bearings from the hub. As to the service light problem ---complete a service as required and then reset the light using a code reader to reset the CPU.. IT may be advisable to get a workshop manual as it will explain what you want to know.

How do my half shafts connect to my hub


Is this a front wheel drive if so it has splines. Sounds like either you stripped the splines on the shaft or on the hub which is pretty hard to do. Considering it takes a puller to get it off and that nut with the cotter pin pretty much presses it on.

How to change wheel bearings on 2004 Pontiac Montana


Once the car has been jacked up, the rear wheels chocked, and the wheel has been removed, it will be necessary to remove the axle nut. If the front wheel hub has been on the car for some years, the axle shaft spline is probably rusted to the wheel hub. You will need some liquid wrench spray. A rotary type of wheel puller will most likely be needed to free the hub from the spline. This is done with the use of a 4 lb. sledge hammer, hitting a rotating handle. Periodically slamming the end of the puller threaded to the axle will help to gradually free the hub from the shaft. Be prepared to spend some time doing this. It took me 2 1/2 hours to free mine. U tube shows how to remove a wheel hub, but they don't tell you what to do if it is seized to the shaft. They show examples of hubs that are new, or have been freed before showing how to remove...

1996 geo metro, passenger side half shaft (CV joint) Shaft and ball joint shaft stuck in spindle unit. Tried lube and a wheele puller, any good ideas??


i use a 3 arm puller to force the shaft out of the hub spline (do not hammer on the cv shaft at all, you will destroy it), and either a pickle fork or a specialy designed ball joint puller to seperate the balljoint from the knuckle. if you dont have a special puller and need to save the balljoint. try using a 6 or 8 foot steel bar to pry down on the lower control arm while another person strikes the knuckle at the balljoint location. note pin retainer type balljoints have a small slot which can be spread open alittle with a cold cut chisel or larg screw driver once the cv shaft is out of the way

Steering column spline adapter


You'll need a specialized puller to remove it. You can fabricate one with a pair of vice grips and a regular gear puller.You attatch the gear puller to the back of the adapter and use the vice grips to hold the puller jaws together and slowly pull the adapter off.
