How do you remove the drum (shaft) from the old shell?
I have removed the pulley, but cannot pull the old shell away from the shaft.
Answer Hello Al. If you have the front shell removed, then the inner basket should slide out of the outer shell. If it is rusted to the bearing, you may have to use a rubber mallet to tap it out. Hope this helps.

Hi I need to replace the bearing in the rear of the rear outer tub assembly part # 13152500.I have the tub disassembled and can not get the inner stainless tub shaft assembly to release form the outer plastic shell bearings. I have put WD 40 on the shaft and tried to tap out with 2x4 and hammer it don't seem to budge, and it won't just slide out. Part don't look rusty. Would like to purchase part the part but don't need it if I can't get shaft out of the rear plastic outer shell, also should check the shaft for inner tub. thanks David
Answer David, Here's some help " Remove the large pulley, drive motor and speed control board assembly. Disconnect the bearing ground wire. Remove the top pins from shock absorbers and push the shock absorbers against the cabinet. Place something down to protect the floor. Remove the tub assembly from the cabinet,Turn the tub over and remove the (23) screws holding the two halves of the tub together. Lift the front half of the tub off the assembly. CAUTION: Use caution in handling the spin basket. The outer surface is very sharp! The seal between the (2) tub halves is placed in the groove of the rear half and can be lifted out. To remove the spin basket, set the back half of the
outer tub on it’s side, and reinstall the screw that secured the large pulley to the shaft. Tap the inner tub out with a rubber hammer. Note: The bearings, water seal and gasket between the two tubs come as part of the rear half of the outer tub. If the water seal or bearings fail,
inspect and if necessary, dress shaft of the spin basket with a file. With some failures it will be necessary to replace the spin basket."
My washer makes a rubbing noise when it does a normal spin, but when it goes into high speed spin it makes a very loud banging noise. Do you have any idea what this may be and what I need to fix it?
This really sounds like a weight that has come loose on the tub assembly. You will have to open the unit to look for it. (Grab the weights one at a time and shake them. If they are loose, you will feel it). If it is a weight that has loosened up, if it isn't broken, you can just tighten it back up. If it turns out to be a suspension spring or a strut, you will be able to tell if you put the unit into spin with the covers off.
