Removing the inner basket in a Whirlpool LSV7245AQ0 washer
Posted 04 April 2011 - 02:02 PM
I have been trying to get the basket out of my old Whirlpool LSV7245AQ0 and it won't budge. I did read this really old post: http://applianceguru...orum2/9228.html which describes my same problem, but I've been hammering on the dang thing for a while now with no improvement and I'm sure my neighbors have had it. Started out with a regular hammer but switched to a rubber mallet when the porcelain started flaking off the shaft.
Is there a specific place I should be hammering especially? I have no idea what it looks like underneath except what is shows on the parts diagram.
Can I put anything in there to soften up the sludge? I've been trying WD-40 so far but willing to try something else. Dish soap? Something from AutoZone?

While someone applies upward pressure on the inner basket
(just grab by the lip an pull up). take the end of the spanner wrench or blunt chisel or like object
and with a metal hammer beat down on the top edge of the metal drive block (the part you screwed the nut off of)
making sure not to damage the threads or hit on the 2 internal grooves..anywhere else on the top of the block is fine.
a few good knocks should break it free...if not rotate the inner basket a little and try again. This will
only work if someone is holding up on the basket.
