This excellent little video from Whirlpool Corporation shows how to tear down and remove the tub in a Whirlpool Duet washer (the Kenmore HE3t / HE4t is the same machine but with a "Kenwhore" label slapped on it). Oh, I know what you're saying, "Gee, Samurai, that's real nice an' all, but how likely is it that I'm gonna need to remove the tub in my new $1,000 washing machine?" Well, Mary B. didn't think it was very likely either until her washer’s tub self-destructed and she was left holding ye olde colostomy bag.
Since removing the tub requires a complete tear down of this machine, the procedure illustrated here has application to many other repairs, such as replacing the tub shocks.
