I have a GE GTWN4950L0WS washing machine making a chattering noise under the tub.  It fills, spins and drains fine.  I guess some ears or cogs not cooperating in the transmission?  Anyway, I'm stuck in removing the 1 11/16 nut (which has loosen and a clockwise arrow on it). Attached File  GE GTWN4950L0WS.jpg   86.34KB   12 downloads   I chewed it up a little with a pipe wrench.  Shouldn't this be easy??? I have an 1 11/16 deep-well socket on it now, but I can not break it free???  Am I being an idiot? Am I missing something or just a weakling?  I assume I need a new clutch ( Clutch WH38X10017, shaft and mode shifter assembly)  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

 Shouldn't this be easy???

 

Very easy... if you use the correct tool:  Tub Nut Wrench.

Thanks!  I know the wrenches are out there, but wouldn't you think a deep-well socket would work just as good?  Have you ever had one that was frozen?  Maybe I'll borrow one from a friend as an experiment...

Experience is the best teacher.  What does yours tell you?

Just chalked up another lesson...  Finally got it apart.  Transmission fine.  Ok, I'm an idiot.  It was such an odd noise, like metal grating on plastic. I couldn't pin it down earlier.  Re-assembled.  Thought it was somehow a bad plastic coupler, even though it looked fine.  Tried it again re-assembled.  Same noise.  Looked much harder to pin it down.  So simple.  Something in the drain hose against the pump slightly.  Bra wire!!!  Attached File  Wire.jpg   24.12KB   1 downloads How could it get there???  Who knows.  Removed.  Works great.

Those bras are nothing but trouble and frustration but sometimes needed.  2143.jpg
