Hello, my question, is the mechanical housing assembly part of the direct drive motor?
The mech housing assembly WH37X10005 is not part of the direct drive motor. What would be considered as the motor assembly would be the rotor and stator on this unit.
What is the procedure for replacing the mech housing ams on this modle?
Answer Hello Keith. This is a complete tear down of the unit. You will disconnect the power and turn off the water. Raise the top and remove the mover and inner basket from the unit. Next access the bottom and remove all wires and hoses from the unit. Now lift out the tub and remove the rotor and stator from the unit. Now you can access and replace the Mech housing on the unit. If the center seal is damaged, you will need to replace it as well. This is best with 2 people due to the heavy lifting required for the job.
