Major Appliances/KC



I was finally able to get to my washer this weekend and take it apart. When I removed the tub, the drive block did not stay on the shaft, but came out with the tub and had to be knocked out. It kind of looks like the tabs on the shaft have been cutting into the metal underneath the top of the drive block. It could be just the way it looks, but there are a few metal shavings inside.

Here are pics of the drive block and shaft. There were several pieces of metal shavings on the tabs of the shaft, but the picture makes it look worse than it is.


Might have just popped out.  Put the drive block on the transmission shaft and align the slots with the tabs on the shaft.  Tap down flush.  Next, drop the tub in and then install the nut.  You will have to tighten the nut real tight.  Now try to run it and let me know what happens...     

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
