The main stage of dismantling a washing machine

We will not elaborate on how to disassemble a washing machine, because the designs are different and the principles of disassembly are different. For example, many models are disassembled from behind, the rest in front. It all depends on the brand and model: the principle can be found in thematic articles.

If the washer is already disassembled, then you can proceed to further actions.

Important! Remember that you should not take a tank in vain - just to inspect it. This should be done only when there is a clear need: to replace bearings or to remove items.

The design of the tank in different models can differ significantly, which cannot be said about the process of dismantling - in all frontal machines you can remove the tank according to the same scheme.

To disassemble the tank, you need to remove a few more parts:

Detail How to remove the
pulley bolt You need to block the pulley with a wooden block so that it does not roll with the shaft. The bolt is not always easily removed due to the special composition, poured inside and fixing mount. This is done so that the bolt does not unscrew when the machine is operating. If the bolt is not removed, you can heat it with a gas torch. Conventional physics: metal expands and the bolt comes off.
Pulley When the bolt is removed, the pulley is no longer attached and you can remove it. To do this, you need to pull it to yourself, while swinging.
Shaft This part must be knocked out of the bearing. This will come to the rescue again a bar made of wood. You need to knock out before the shaft will be on the same level with the bearings.

Now you can proceed to disassembly.

Often the tank is fastened not with bolts, but with latches or brackets. This does not change the essence: you need to remove the attachment around the entire circumference. As soon as the last attachment is removed, you need to check: are there any other elements connecting the tank halves. If everything is clean, you can take off the top half of the tank - that’s what you disassembled.

Now you can get the drum to remove an object stuck between it and the tank, or change bearings.
