For Whirlpool Washer Drive Block (Part Number: AP2905773)

Well, I got the tub off. I had to remove the motor and transmission and pushed with both feet to remove it, however my block is part of the tub, not as seen on your video. I also went to my local appliance parts store and he looked up my model and it shows the same thing as yours, but again, my block is at the top of the tube and your block bottom is way to big. Mine is the same size as the tub center tube, but I did get the tub off. Now I'm trying to find the correct parts. Some parts are the same as the ones listed, but for the tub parts, they are different. All of the information shown to me are the same as yours. Is mine an older model? Why is the model number correct from my new purchase invoice to the tag under the lid of the washer? I just dont know. Again, thanks for all your help! Maybe I'll send you a picture of this tub, if you can receive pictures. Don P.S. I think I need to purchase a new tub as it looks like it's all one piece with the block already attached. There is no way to remove it from my tub.

Don for Model Number LA5558S

ANSWER Hello Don, This sounds like the spanner nut was loose long enough to malform the center tube of the inner tub. This will require the replacement of the inner tub W10389328 and the drive block 389140. It may even necessitate the replacement of the basketdrive 285792 if the two tabs are worn off or the edges are rounded off on the old one.
