Washing Machine Disassembly Help?

193 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Gcraay
I need to replace the bottom (motor) seal in my washing machine,

I am following the video below,

I am at the 5:00 point of the video, I have removed the nut,

Then he just pulls the tub up and out,

The problem is, my tub is rusted around that shaft and will not pull up, any advice on how to free this up?

Should I use a torch?

Soak it in Sea Foam deep creep. After cleaning off as much as you can. The issue you may run into is wether or not your going to have a smooth enough surface to put a new seal onto. Also, chances are, his example isn’t exactly what you have. Is there a chance your missing a retaining pin, clip or screw?
