How to remove the brake rotor on Maytag Atlantis and Admiral washers without having to buy that expensive special tool

Samurai Appliance Repair Man


Is this the one with the sticker that sez......"Do not remove cover, spring under 200 pounds.. etc..",,,,,,,,On the Maytag gearboxes, what you would do is remove one screw and go to the hardware store and get 1/2 the amount of screws in the gearbox ( 12 screws , get 6 ),, screws of the same thread but about 2 inches long......On the gearbox, remove alternating screws , like every other one ( on Maytag there is 6 screws ) install the new long screws all of the way, remove all of the old short screws, Then CAREFULLY remove the long screws about two turns at a time on every screw, working around the cover.....IF the cover is not loose as you are running out of threads, you need longer screws.... Reinstall in the reverse order using the long screws to suck the cover down, install the short, original screws and so on....
