I've got a Kenmore washer MOD: 110.26722690, that has a driveshaft which has been joined by the bonds of RUSTY matrimony to the pump. I did some pretty nasty things to the two of them to try to induce a divorce but to no avail.

First I pulled with my Olympic arm wrestling hands, then pried with a screw driver, then I pried with a cats paw, then a hammer and crow bar. NOTHING!

Then I decided its power tool time! Got out the grinder and cut away the pump. Finally I was able to rip off all the existing pump and rust.

BUT.....In the process it looks like I damaged the front of the motor (see in attached photo #1).

My Questions are:

1) Can I still use this motor? Picture #1 (3363736) It looks sketchy....
2) Is my other motor (8528157) compatible? They look like the same exact motor?
3) Are there any more efficient ways of removing a rusty pump from the driveshaft other than brute force?
4) Is there anything you can put on the driveshaft/pump interface to avoid rust build up?


Thanks :)

1) No, that Motor looks pretty much hatched

2) Yes, those 2 part numbers sub to the same

3) Thats what I have had to do on numerous occasions, if it looks like it ain't gonna come - chisel the centre from the pump and use a rotary tool to grind/split/clean the pump material from shaft. Note that as water leaks from the centre of pump that it also contaminates the front bearing in the Motor.

4) A wee dab of anti-sieze lube, or axle grease to the shaft when pump is installed certainly can't hurt. The best defense is occasional removal and inspection so it may be solved prior to escalating to this level.

I use a 1" hole saw right down the middle of the pump then clean the motor shaft up with 3" makita disc grinder. Takes about ten minutes.

<<<I use a 1" hole saw right down the middle of the pump>>>

*******************

This is what I love about this forum---learning others tech's solutions that are so simple and practical---that it makes me grin & chuckle :)

Great tip!
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
