Whirlpool LSR6132HQ1:

Step four (the first step four, there are two step fours on page 24 of document L-55) says to simply "Complete the removal of the basket by loosening the spanner nut on the spintube and expand the drive block with a wide bladed screw driver. (fig 58)"

Now, I can see the place where I expand the drive block, so I can only assume that the spanner nut is the round bit with four notches each 90 degrees apart. It doesn't look like the drawing though. Anyway, this thing does not want to move. I'm trying hammer/scredriver vs nut and also pipe wrench vs nut. Is it reverse-threaded maybe? Seems like they would have said as much, but it doesn't really go into detail as to how one is supposed to "loosen the spanner nut".

I should mention that this machine is quite a number of years old (the serial number indicates it was manufactured in year "J", whatever that means)

Am I more likely to bust the inner tub trying to get this spanner nut off, or am I just missing something?

Thanks Gurus,

Jeremy

Of course I'd need a tool... Wife says "how much for this new tool? $60?" "No, only $20! What a deal! Can I get two?!"

I don't think my beatings have damaged it. Going to try and find a friend who owns one of these and will let me rent it for 10 minutes. :)

Okay, it's free, and not much damage to show for it, I just needed to be more persuasive.

Now that I've got the outer tub out and can see the crack, I notice it's right next to a fin on the bottom.

Are these prone to breakage by the fins, or does it mean something else is out of whack to let it hit some support that it shouldn't (thus fracturing the plastic and would be likely to happen again to the brand-new tub), or did I just not make out as good as other owners with tubs that aren't broken?

Just wondering what the experience is with this type of tub and failures, if anyone has any comment?

Thanks again everyone,

One more item-- The lower rubber seal (at the base of the outer tub) needs replacing, and I kind of, well, destroyed the rubber seal just above that one, up the shaft a bit, where the shaft gets a little smaller... (yeah, amateur move there!) so I need one of each of those, don't think they are on this list:

Any hints?

Thanks all,

Jeremy

The first one is right- that's on the bottom, seals outer tub to shaft. I can't tell on the second one- what I pulled out (of oil and gunk) was black rubber. Is that white thing rubber or plastic? I think I need something rubber.

It doesn't look like these two parts move (the spinning part is inside the inner tube, and this rubber thing sealed the outer tube from the inner tube) so I wonder if I can just silicone it up nice and tight???

Is there another non-turning shaft inside the tube in part #6? I'm thinking I may have ripped apart 3,4,5, but they weren't really that high up. There's a second smaller non-turning shaft inside the outer shaft, the outer shaft ends about halfway up, the spinning part is inside the inner shaft.

By the way they call that tub seal a doughnut.So if you walse into an appliance parts store and ask for a doughnut seal, they will know what to sell you.

I know this makes me a necromancer for bringing back this post, but I thought I'd add that I did replace the outer tub because of that crack on the bottom by the fin that sticks downward. The next time the machine went out of balance (son put two blankets in at once!) the new outer tub cracked in the same place as the old one, by the fin. Are my springs more loose than they should be maybe? is there a part that wears out that causes the inner tub to be able to move more than it should, which would result in the fin banging so hard into the metal thing it normally just hits that it cracks the bottom of the plastic outer tub?

Its sounds like the brakes stuck...when this happens the basket will stop immediately instead of a slow decrease. The extra centrifigal force cause the entire assembly to rotate farther than normal and the result is sometimes as you describe. Also, the skate plate (not pictured in any of these diagrams) may not have been reinstalled correctly when you changed the outer tub.
