The hub disntegrated . I had to destroy the hub nut to get the old hub off.

I looked at the instructions for removing the tub that are on the back of the circuit diagram included in the panel behind the controls. I followed the directions. As one of your commenters had noted, the aluminum Hub Nut is practically impossible to get a hold on without a special wrench so I chiseled it off. That was the most difficult and time comsuming part . I found some pieces of the old hub in the drain line and blocking the drain pump. Be sure to check for this before reassembling and using the washer.

Base hub had broken into several pieces.

The repair was done as describe by others with the "hub nut" having to be cut off due to corrosion. Instructions for removal of the tub were found inside the control panel area on the left hand side. Ordering s new hub nut and cutting off the old one proved to be a necessity.

Spin basket was not spinning

Thanks to some of the others who wrote their repair experiences I was able to get this hub apart, order the parts and get it back together in less than two day. I did have to chisel the aluminum nut and some of the zinc hub off from the shaft like others had said they did. It was time consuming and all I can think of while I was beating the heck out of the chisel was what where they thinking of when they designed this washing machine. I must thank Parts Select for getting the parts out the next day and having a great web site that has a place for exploded views of the appliances and customer repair comments.
