Can someone help me understand how this tool works? (Spring Removal Tool)

11 posts in this topic

I'm going to be repairing a few Maytag washers soon and I can't seem to grasp how this tool works. I've read instructions on how it supposed to work but for some reason I can't seem to visualize it. Anyone know of any videos that might help?

They work so good I am tempted to get one and give up my redneck technique of spring removal, "Stretch the spring out and jam a metal electrical box in the coils."

I've searched youtube high and low. A link would earn you automatic hero status!

Mind. Blown. Was thinking to myself after posting this thread "There's no way someone is going to make a video of this for me." Happy to be proven wrong. THANK YOU!

Looks easy, more difficult than it shows.    Wait to you do the back side.    I always tilt the tub to the spring I am working on.

lol - true enough.  Still WAY easier than using an electrical outlet box ... or vicegrips.
