I'm trying to figure out why this clothes washer doesn't agitate, the clothes just smoothly turn in a circular motion with no agitating. Doesnt have the shake type force. On another unit I owned it had clogs that made the agitator agitate. What is the purpose of the hub? I think it might be the problem.
Again thanks for your time and help
Answer Hi. Lift the top. Remove the outer tub top cover. Remove the agitator all together. Remove the 5- bolts and remove the inner tub. You will see the Trunnion part # 131545101 where the inner tub bolted on to it. You will notice that there is a 1"w x 3"L flat bar that 2 bolts at the top of the trunnion. They all work together to hold the trunnion to the only flt spot on the side of the transmission. One bolt is broke. It is part # 137539500, you will need 2- of them. The flat bar is part # 137107000 and you need to use loktite part # F8283401 to lightly use on the new bolt threads. This is a normal fault as your issue you described. Thank You.
My tub and agitator
spin in only one direction than after a few minutes or so starts to make a grinding sound. Needless to say clothes arent getting clean.
Answer Hello Micheal. Check and make sure the plate 137107000 under the agitator is not broke or the bolts holding on the plate. If not, it sounds like the transmission 134737100 may be bad if the noise is coming from there and nothing moves.
How do you remove the hub on the washer machine to replace the part?
Answer Hello Danielle. After the bolt is removed from the top of the transmission, you need to use a cold chissel and cut/knock the old hub off the unit. Then, you will tap the new hub 134418700 onto the shaft of the transmission. Be careful not to damage the shaft when working on the unit.
How do I remove the agitator drive block? Does it just pull up?
Answer Hi Floyd. Whithout the correct model # , Are you asking about the Trunnion under the top basket? Part # is 131545101. The agitator hub is part # 134418700. Yes you pull them up. The trunnion needs to be unbolted from the agitator shaft, then lifted up. Thank you.
