Splitting the front load washer tank
Alright, welcome back to frontloadbearings.com and as you can see, we’ve taken off the clips that went around it and basically, the tank has fallen apart. So, we’re gonna move the front end away here. This can be pretty lopsided when you’re moving it around because of the weights. Just mind you don’t drop it or knock it over. You definitely don’t want to crack one of these weights, either. They’re just made of concrete. So, nine times out of ten, this will pull out really easy. Let’s see what happens. It doesn’t get any easier than that… and out goes the tank! Whilst I’m here, let’s just take a look at what we have here in the back. We have the spider, and we have the shaft, and as you can see on this one, nothing is chewed up, particularly. It’s in good shape. Now, if you do ever get markings on the shaft here, just run over them with a piece of sandpaper or a strip of emery cloth and clean it up so that the new bearings fit in nice and easy. So, that’s that for here. Next thing we’re gonna do is take a look at the bearings and we’re gonna start taking the bearings out of the tank.
Thanks for watching! Cheers.
