WTW4950XW0 not spinning

11 posts in this topic

I've already checked everything under the tub.  Pulley nut is tight, belt is good, etc.  When I took out the basket it looks like there should be some splines in the hub. There are no splines.  I'm guessing this is my problem.  Can this hub be replaced?  I couldn't tell if it came out of the basket.

  This is a VMW belt drive, not Cabrio direct drive.

That'll learn me to ignore the X in the model number!  Domo, Eric.

This is the hub assembly:  Part number: AP4557873

Part number: AP4557873

 

What part are you calling the hub?

Yeah that whole assembly looks right.  Mine doesn't have splines anymore.  I didn't notice any screws holding mine in though.  Is the factory assembly the same as that one?

I guess mine has funk covering the screws?

  Splines are gone on the drive block or spin tube?

The splines on the basket hub assembly that samurai posted a pic of are completely gone.  I suspect it was caused by a combination of corrosion and overloading.  Just waiting on a part now. Hopefully that is the only problem. 

 

Will I need to run the calibration program after putting this back together?

Ok, thanks. That part with the splines is actually the drive block. There's no splines in the tub hub but it all comes as a kit, hub/driveblock/tub-nut. Yes, you should run the calibration after replacing any part on these washers.

Absotootly.  You should run calibration on this unit after you do any repair.
