How do I reove the nut from the stud so I can remove the pulley on the back of the drum?
Is is a left handed or right handed thread?
Answer Micky, To remove the pulley from the basket, place the handle of a crescent wrench through the pulley and into the steel bearing hub to keep the pulley from turning. Use a 21-millimeter socket wrench to remove the nut securing the pulley to the basket. The pulley nut and shaft is a "standard" thread, right/clockwise, to tighten and left/counterclockwise to loosen. They are torqued very tightly at the factory, you don't really want to try to hold the pulley with your hand, when you start removing or tightening the nut.
Is this a metric nut? If so what is diameter and pitch?
We do not have specs on the whether the nut is metric or the diameter and pitch.
Can the bearing be changed , not the whole outer-tub...Just the bearing..... If so, where can i find it for sale?
Answer Greg, To the best of our knowledge, No, the tub bearing cannot be repalced, satisfactorily. The tub bearing is "pressed" into the outer tub on the production line, while the outer tub is still "hot" and seals to the tub assembly. The proper repair will require the replacement of the rear outer tub assembly W10290562.
When reassembling the nut after a repair, is any loctite required? Is there a torque spec available?
Answer Hello John. You can use a little loctite on the nut W10283361. There is no specific torque requirement on the nut. Hope this helps.
Does this nut include the bearing?
Answer Hello. No, to get the bearing you will need this part.W10253864 Hope this helps.
