Another TIP: or you will be doing this job again in less than a year.......


Those two tabs that stick up and are bent in towards the agitator shaft. They need to be bent back out to the correct position or a new drive block is just going to strip out in no time at all.

Take a small square ended chisel and gently tap it with a hammer in between the agitator shaft and the tab at all four cornes of the tabs.

Use the new drive block turned upside down to gauge when you have them back out to the correct position, if you go to far you won't get the new drive block to seat down correctly.

This is what I do anytime I replace a drive block on these newer Whirlpools that seem to be having this problem. I haven't had to go back on one yet and didn't have to charge the customer for a new spin tube/brake assembly replacement either.
