I am trying to remove the inner tub, in order to replace the drive block. The tub won't slide off the spindle even though I've taken off the drive block nut. It will move up and down about 1/" to 1/2" and then it catches on something.

Bill G for Model Number lsr8233eq1

ANSWER Hello Bill, If you removed the agitator clip, the washer and the spanner nut then the tub should lift right out. You want to make sure that you have removed the tub ring before trying to lift out or it will only lift about a half inch. To get the tub ring off you will have to take the cabinet off to access tub ring.
