When trying to remove the spanner nut in order to replace the outer washer tub, which direction should the nut turn to be removed? I have been told that this model is reverse side. Also, what tool can be used besides the spanner nut wrench ($80.00). A pipe wrench is too long in the handle.

ANSWER Hello Darleen, The spanner nut is standard right handed threads so you would turn it counterclockwise to remove it. I have used a punch and a hammer to remove it, but you have to be terribly careful not to hit the porcelain tub so the porcelain doesn't get chipped off. If it does, it will snag clothes and eventually rust and stain clothes.
