I have removed the center cap and 7/16 bolt but washplate seems to be stuck on shaft. I soaked it with a lubricant and not able to lift it out. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks
Answer Dean, It may be easier to use the spin basket to remove the impeller/wash plate. There should be 3/8 to 1/2 inch up and down movement in the basket (this is normal for this style washer), grasp the tub by the balance ring and lift up sharply on the basket, " NOTE: Lifting
the basket will assist in removing the impeller". If it's that bad, you may need an assistant.
How do you remove washplate? Is a bearing puller or any other specialized tools required?
Answer Hello John. Unsnap the center cap out of the wash plate. Then remove the bolt in the center of the unit. Once removed, you will lift the wash plate W10141017 out of the unit. You may need to use a putty knife or an ice pick to help you raise it out of the unit. Hope this helps.
