Tips and Procedures
Learn how to restore appliances to the appearance and function they had when new.
Belted washers have a spin tube that rotates around the agitator shaft and is the heart of the spin function. A spin tube is shown in the following diagram.
The spin basket attaches to the top of the tube and spin torque is applied via the spin clutch. The spin tube and spin pulley are shown in purple in the following diagram.
The spin tube can wear out and cause the basket to wobble on the agitator shaft during the spin cycle. A water seal at the top of the spin tube keeps water from flowing between the spin tube and the agitator shaft. If this seal leaks, water runs down the agitator shaft and displaces the grease in the transmission case. Therefore, replacing the spin tube can restore several important functions of the washer.
Replacing the spin tube is a very involved and labor intensive procedure but the rewards are large so here we go!!
