Thanks for your reply...will do...

Question: How best to post...one posting at a time (since the 2MB limit)?
Or is there any way to post several pictures on one posting?

Thanks so much for your help...

Have you looked over the cabrio manual? Maybe we won't need to see any pix. Their are plenty in the manual.

Hello kdog and Ala. AppMan!! :D

Thanks so much for the Cabrio manual, and I have not yet attempted to gently pound out the shaft because of the following concerns:

1).  I am under the impression that I still need some kind of "special tool" to put in new shaft (or old one if it still looks good) and properly insert bearings/seal...? (So my thoughts are: what is the point of doing this if I need this special tool to install the shaft properly in new tub...J5 gave me the impression that this is a not an easy thing to do).

2).  I was hoping for guidance before I began, because since I am unsure of how to proceed, I didn't want to start to and then end up creating a larger problem

3).  And ultimately, if I found that this is a futile process, I would like to be able to return brand new outer tub.

Nevertheless, your replies have given me some courage.

I shall take some pics and post them as soon as possible.

I'll first post the new tub and what it came with...

And since I have not removed old tub yet...I will just post general pic of machine and bottom of machine with rotor (cover) removed...

I have hesitated to do anything else because of a lack of complete step-by-step directions...

Be back with the pics later today, after work.

Thank YOU BOTH for your replies...Really!!  :kiss:

Hi Ala AppMan,

Just briefly looked over Cabrio manual...WOW what details!! (Wish FP made such a one for my GWL10-US machine). <oh well>

There are quite a few differences...my machine has less parts...but I do see some similarities and certainly now understand the different naming of parts for the same thing. US vs New Zealand...

I will be able to look at this in greater detail later and then compare when I get home and tip machine over...

Bless you...:angel:

I'll be back...

Hello Venerable Master Repair-men and women,

I shall now attempt to post my current photos of my machine and how far I have ventured (not very far as of yet in terms of removing shaft, etc.)...

If I do not figure out how to do this in a couple of posts, I will be making about 5 or 6 photo posts...

This first one is the frontal view of the machine...

Ok, this is going to be a bit tedious...one post per picture...

The following view is the back panel of the machine...it has NO screws. In other words, the back panel cannot be removed, unlike in Cabrio, etc.

Once rotor nut and rotor are removed, you get a glimpse of the stator and the end of the shaft...

You can probably remove that large nut on the bottom of the shaft and gently drive the shaft out through the top of tub

Here's a side view...camera is angled towards the left side of the bottom of machine...to get a better glimpse of the pump and I don't know what else because the wonderful parts manual is unclear...I'm guessing hoses/clamps/attaching to motor position sensor, impellor, etc...this is just ONE (Very Unclear Manual) of the very frustrating things about this repair attempt  for this brave novice...:touched:

And the final few photos...the NEW outer tub without shaft...the only "loose" part is that little ring you'll see in the following picture...a bearing or seal. This one is a full upright view of the thing...
