      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

That model number you posted is for thr dryer (and a gas one at that)- likely that the mating washer is c48702-00, to remove the dryer from the washer, pop the 2 plastic plugs from the bottom of the dryer panel and remove the 2 screws that are underneath them, front of dryer can be lifted up slightly and slid forward and off. Depending on what you intend to service on the washer, you may not need to remove the dryer, most of the lower components of the washer can be accessed for the lower front panel

If it is a one piece laundry centre (top load washer) then you cannot reomve the dryer - to work on washer, remove the 3 large springs by streching them out and inserting electrical boxes in them, then pull the tub back toward that spring and it remains sterched out - leave the electrical box in it and remove it (you'll need 3 boxes) once the 3 springs are off, you pull the "milk-stool" out of the cabinet to service it, normally the tub seal leaks a bit of water into the tub bearing and gums it up causing it to bind, you can replace the bearing and tub seal, while you're at it, a belt and snubber are usually in order

Yes, I have done it this way in the past as well, but ALWAYS have run into issues lining the cabinet screws up when wrapping up, this also requires more room above/in front of etc. and the ones I usually get are in tight spots.

I know what ya mean, if its gonna be a tough one I sometimes will even haul it back to the shop...most of mine are in the shop. Most customers don't wanna pay ther cost for a tranny job....actually I have to change the outer tub on one tomorrow.
