OK I found this washer and the tub bearing was shot. The seal nut broke then 3 of the 4 screws broke on the basket hub assembly. Tried to removed the basket hub assembly but was a booger to turn soooooo here I go grinding it off and well you guessed it I messed up some threads......now I have found this tool on line

Why are they calling it a "Maytag Tube Thread Chaser" when it says...... "Designed to re-thread basket drive tube before reassembly on all model washers except Maytag"

 

Is that a type-O?

 

The tranny is good but the 4 starting threads on the tranny are a little shot......if this tool can help  me someone plz let me know.

To me---- it seems like it would work, but I want to know for sure before moving forward....and if this does not work----- does anyone know what die I would need to re-cut these threads?

 

Thx!

 Call me brave....no insurance work here-----I sometimes do work for people I know who can not afford new appliances so my labor is free....not looking for a laugh but a solution

 

Thanks!

Why would it not work? I'd spend the $20 before I ate the cost of a new tranny.

 

 

That tool looks like it would do the job, the other  way is to order an extra basket drive block and try to fix the threads with a file or a small dremmel tool.

I have a new seal kit.....the new drive block will not screw in by
hand w/out stopping 1/2 a round into the threads.....I have tried a
small file no luck. No Dremmel tool to work with.....I will keep on it!

 

Thanks for the input!

Sorry my ADD kicked in If you had an extra drive block you could use it to fix the threads on the transmission by forcing it in place, the block is aluminum, the tranny is steel cased, so you would mess up the threads in the extra drive block, it would be ok, as long as it fixed the threads on the tranny before cross threading the drive block. Hope this is coming across more clearly than my last post. I still think that that tool would work, as log as it wasnt for one of those amana spped queen clones.

It will work. It is just a die(as in tap and die)(harder and sharper than the shaft). Carefully start the thread chaser with some oil and make sure it aligns properly at the start of the threads. Take it down a couple of threads back it off and repeat until the threads are clean and straight. There are also thread files you can buy, but you must know your thread pitch and threads per inch. You could try a triangle file. I'd be real careful with a dremel tool. Good luck.

Tell me about! The dust in the air made me to buy some dust masks....I am sure that stuff is not good for the lungs!

 

Thx for the input about the tools

 

No problem about the misunderstanding...
