I just looked at a newer model cabrio washing machine model #WTW5640XW0. It is roaring during the spin cycle indicating bad bearings correct? It looks as though whirlpool has made it so you can replace the bearings, which are now on the gearcase, without replacing the outer tub. I was wondering if someone could walk me through tearing this machine down and then puting it back together. I tried to pull the inner tub today but was stumped at what I found. I had to use a spanner wrench to get the spanner nut off. then remove the plate with the six screws in it that looks like the same plate that are on the older models. Under that is where I was stumped. There is some sort of hub under there and I'm not sure how to get that off. If someone could please help me it would be much appreciated.

SOB about drove me to madness the other day, so hope you benefit from my ordeal...
Put those 6 screws back in the hub...underneath, remove all the harnesses and the 4 bolts holding the gear case up. Put something down under it if the floor is damaged easily.
go back up top and take a wood block and hammer to that effin shaft and drive it down.
the basket hub and the shaft are splined together...a real bitch to just try to pull out.
this is the only way I could get the basket out of the one I was working on...rots o ruck GI!

Thanks alot for the info. So when I go to put the unit back together with new gearcase in place, how do I get the basket hub back on the shaft. Does it go on easier than it comes off?

Naw, I cleaned up the splines and lubed 'em alittle ...took a few tries to get it lined up but when it oriented, it fell right in place.

ok I am going to do the gearcase replacement tomorrow. Just wanting to know if there was anything else that may be difficult to watch for. Any more steps to take that I should be concerned with?
