Whirlpool Cabrio Inter Tub removal
« on: July 24, 2014, 11:59:36 AM »
HELP! I have followed you excellent video on disassembly of a Whirlpool Cabrio and everything went real well till I tried to CAREFULLY remove inter tub! I can get it about an inch and a half up on shaft but CAN NOT get it out! Believe me I forgot about the carefully after about the tenth time and have been yanking on this thing ever since!  Does anyone have any ideas?? Model # WTW6500WW1 Type 580. Thanks in advance!

here is what I do in this situation. first take off the hub held on by six screws spray a liberal amount of wd 40 or other lube down into the area where the basket sets on shaft. second put your foot down on top of the shaft and grasp basket and jerk up firmly. when it sticks wiggle and pull up. if it does not come up any more hold up on the basket while you grasp the shaft splines with good channelock pliers or vice grips and twist back and forth a few times ( basket will probably drop down some , lather rinse repeat each time you jerk the basket up it should come a little farther before it gets stuck)

caution when once you remove the hub the basket can drop further down the shaft but let it down gently. also unless you are changing the shaft and bearings make sure you protect the shaft splines with tape or a rag before you put the pliers to it.

I am looking at making some hooks of some ort to hook into the bottom basket slots and use a wheel puller to pull the baskets that stick on me. have had 2 or three that I have had to pull the shaft and basket together and then pound the shaft out

The inner basket floats on this machine, so I wouldn't advise pulling from the tub drain holes. It may crack the tub
