Tips for removing & reinstalling the hub nut in a GE top loading washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 15 January 2012 · 2,632 views

Due to the higher rpm of this model, the 1-11/16 in. hub nut securing the tub is made of Stainless Steel and must be torqued to 150 ft. lbs.
If the hub nut is removed, it must be tightened to 150 ft. lbs.
If the hub nut wrench (PN WX5X1325) is used to tighten the hub nut, the wrench must be struck with a rubber mallet or dead blow hammer until it will not tighten any further.
This may take 30 to 50 hits with a rubber mallet or dead blow hammer.
To be certain that the nut will not tighten any further, align the spanner wrench with the holes in the basket and use them as a guide to determine that the nut will not move when the hub nut wrench is struck.
Impact wrenches are set to more than 150 ft lbs and should tighten the nut sufficiently.

The 1-11/16 in. hub nut is Stainless Steel and has been torqued to 150 ft. lbs.
• The word “LOOSEN” and an arrow appear on the hub nut.
Turn clockwise to remove.

Caution: Use only a rubber mallet, dead blow hammer, or impact wrench to remove the hub nut.
Use of a steel head hammer may result in damage to the spin basket.
Remove the left-handed, stainless steel hub nut using a spanner wrench and a rubber mallet or
dead blow hammer, or an impact wrench.

Note: Hub nut must be tightened to 150 ft. lbs.when reinstalling,
