Do you know what size this nut is? Is it 1 11/16", because it is too tight and I'll maybe need a impact drill ?
Answer Ricardo, The spanner wrench TJ90TB123A is what you should be using to remove the hub nut on your GE washer, all you'll need is a basic hammer to remove the nut, not an impact drill, you may damage the hub or tub and create more problems, using other tools.

I have a new tub, and cant get the tub nut off, the old tub. The nut wrench looks like its a spanner wrench, not a 1 5/8 nut wrench. Am I doing something wrong ?
Answer Hi. Use wd-40 lubricant or a freeze off type of spray. Gently rock the inner tub to help break free any rust under the nut. Then the nut to the right to loosen. This will help. The spanner wrench is part # TJ90TB123A. Use a short handle hammer or a mallet type. Be careful not to damage or scratch inner tub (enamel tub). Hub Nut Part Number: WH2X1193. Thank You.
Is this a reverse thread nut?
Answer Hi. The tub nut part # WH2X1193 removes in a clockwise effort. Thank You.
If the threads needs to chased before installing the hub nut(AP2045284), what size die is required?
Answer Hello Clay. We are sorry, but the manufacture does not offer the thread size of the nut WH2X1193. You would need to contact them for that information.
I have the spanner tool....but this nut will not budge. I can not get it off. I have tried penetrating oil and lots of hammering for 2 days. Any ideas?
Answer Hello E. If the nut WH2X1193 is stuck and won't break loose, you may need to use a hammer and chisel and cut the nut off the unit. Be careful not to damage the threads on the shaft. Hope this helps.
After removing the hub nut, how does the hub itself come off the shaft ?
Answer Hi Joe. Have you lubricated it with Crc 3 -36 part # TJ93208. Then you will need to gently rock the inner basket back and forth as it has seized itself to the split part WH02X10265. - This General Electric washing machine split ring tub bearing is located between the inner and outer tub. For the washer outer tub seal order WH02X10383. Thank You.
Thanks. I took the spin basket out and it seems to have liqiud sloshing around inside ,but it won't pore out.Is this normal? I think, maybe the water trapped insided is causing the basket to be out of ballance. Could that be, and could that shake the nut loose? Everything else looks fine.
Answer Thom, The "sloshing" noise, is normal. The upper "balance" ring is a fluid(salt water) filled component, and the noise is normal.If you inspect it, and find no cracks or damage, the balance ring is OK. At this point, you need to start looking for a worn out tub bearing and seal assembly, inner tub base,and split ring assembly, if your sure everything else "looks" good. Thanks and Good Luck.
