Kenmore Oasis HE, Whirlpool Cabrio HE, Maytag Bravos HE: Full Disassembly/Outer Tub Replace Guide

Kenmore Oasis HE, Whirlpool Cabrio HE, Maytag Bravos HE
Full Disassembly/Outer Tub Replace Guide

Part to Replace:Outer Tub Assembly
Difficulty:2/3 out of 5 beers.
Professional: 40-60 mins.
Grasshopper: 2-hours+

Here is the machine:

This is me:

1. Open the top lid by depressing the tabs with a butter knife or putty knife between the top and cabinet. The picture below shows the top opened and the clips that you need to depress.

2. Prop the lid up against the wall so it stays at a 90 degree angle.

3. Remove the tub ring by releasing the tabs on the side and removing the recirculation hose by releasing the clamp.

4. Remove the wash plate bolt cover. There is a slot that meets with one of the wash plate "fins". Remove the wash plate by removing the 7/16in bolt. Pull up on the wash plate with a pair of pliers to remove it from the shaft. This will expose the wash plate shaft and basket hub.

5. Remove the basket by holding the inside of the balance ring and pulling straight up. Sometimes, corrosion gets stuck on the shaft making it very difficult to remove the basket. If you have this issue, fill the machine with a hose and the basket will start to float. keep filling it while pulling up on the basket then pushing it down again. BE SURE your drain hose is still in the stand pipe or you will have a mess. Eventually, the pressure of you pulling up and down and the pressure of the water lifting the basket should free up the corrosion and allow you to free it. then drain the water by putting the machine in a drain/spin only mode or by using a Wet/Dry vac. In the field, we use a Pony Pump.

7. Remove the sump cover by removing the 2-1/4in screws and lifting it.

8. You now have to options on servicing the bottom of the machine. I prefer to tilt it on the left side about 45 to 60 degrees from the floor or you can lay it on its left or right side.

9. Remove the rotor by using a 1/4in Allen Wrench or 1/4in to 1/4in hex screw driver bit on a 1/4in socket. You can lock the rotor by placing a small screw driver in one of the large holes and line it up with a hole on the stator under it.

10. Loosen up and disconnect the harnesses from the 2 pumps and black retainers first. You will not be able to disconnect the stator until you remove it. Using a permanant marker, mark the tub where end of the white RPS sensor is(See the top most arrow in the pic below) so you can properly re-align it during re-assembly. Remove the 4 bolts holding in the stator. On some Kenmore Oasis Models, they will be 3/8in bolts. Whirlpool Cabrio/Maytag Bravos will be 5/16in bolts. Disconnect RPS Sensor harness. If your RPS sensor has been replaced after June 2008(estimated date) or your machine was made after June 08, your RPS Sensor and connector might be black and have a different plug than what is in these pics.

11. Remove the pumps by removing the 5/16in screws and clamps. In the picture, I still have the rotor and stator on. Your rotor and stator should be off by now. Disconnect the pressure switch hose, clip and screw, and separate the bracket from the shock shaft.

Beer break…

12. Stand the unit up. Tilt it to the side a bit and place a small bucket, bowl, or 4×4 block of wood under the rotor shaft. I keep a tire stop in my truck for this purpose. In the picture, I used a small thermostat recycling bucket that we keep in the office.

13. Stand the machine up slowly while holding the tub in the center. This will allow the tub to clear the top of the cabinet. It should look like this after your done.

14. Release the shocks by depressing these tabs and push these rings down and clear the shocks from the tub.

15. Remove the tub from the cabinet. Remove any parts that need to be transferred to the new tub. Depending on the model parts might include insulation and retainers, heaters, recirculation tube and bracket.

16. Have a beer and reassemble.

RepairClinic launches new state-of-the art website with a new parts search engine and expanded product line

On Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2010, launched a new state-of-the-art website to provide customers with the highest quality service. This new site features, among other innovations, a new part-search engine loaded with additional part information; a more refined, but customer-friendly checkout process; and expanded product lines. new product lines include outdoor power equipment, and vacuum cleaners. They offer both OEM and after-market parts for 24 brands of walk-behind lawn mowers, riding lawn mowers, zero turn radius (ZTR) lawn mowers, and small engines. They are also offering an entire inventory of OEM replacement parts and accessories for seven brands of vacuum cleaners.

New Features of

Part Replacement Videos has revolutionized the do-it-yourself world by producing step-by-step, high-definition part-replacement videos. Each video demonstrates complete disassembly, part replacement, and reassembly of the appliance. If a part-replacement video is available, a video icon will appear below the part description. We currently offer over 100 part-replacement videos and are producing over 40 new videos each month.

Search No Further newly enhanced “Shop for Parts” search engine is unlike any other in the appliance-parts industry today: it unites customers with their parts more quickly and easily than ever before. The part selections are titled more clearly for easier identification and there inventory of parts are re-categorized for more accurate search results. Searches can be generated from menus or keywords, and customers can select or deselect search criteria at any time and in any order; generating a new set of results each time.

It’s All In the Details
Identifying parts is made easier with there “Part Detail” page which gives clear and precise part descriptions and displays larger part images. Most part images appear on a 1-square-inch grid, and can be viewed at twice their size for a more detailed view of the part. Many parts also have a “RepairGuru® Tip” offering additional helpful information about the part. They assign a skill-level rank to many parts: “one wrench” means an easy repair; “four wrenches” means a difficult repair and may need a repair technician.

Location, Location, Location
Providing a model number generates the most accurate result when searching for a part. exclusive “Model Number Identification” videos help customers identify the product’s model-number tag and its location on the product. Each video displays a rotating 3-D computer-generated illustration of the product showing clear views of possible tag locations. Also available for quick reference are static 3-D illustrations of each product for possible tag locations.

The Buck Stops Here new and innovative checkout process allows customers to view, modify, and complete their order with ease. They have combined all of the checkout information onto one page to simplify the process. Customers complete each section, and review their order before submission to prevent any errors. A clear, concise order-confirmation page appears for printing for the customers’ records.

No Need For a Bloodhound
Tracking an order is now available directly from there website. Customers click on “Order Tracking” from any page on the website, “Log In” to their account, and click on the order number they want to track. Customers will view the ship date, shipment method, and the tracking number linked to the carrier. Customers can still contact “Customer Service” for order information, but online access is now much quicker and easier.

0. Introduction

Like Autumn leaves wafting to the ground, another issue of Appliantology falls into your inbox. Movin’ on…

### ### ### ###

1. New appliance repair posts

It’s been a busy three months since the last Appliantology newsletter. I’ve cranked out over 300 new pearls of appliantological wisdom since June at Most deal with specific problems in all sorts of brands, models, and types of major appliances. But a few are of more general interest or apply to common appliance problems. Here are some highlights:

Diagnosing Dishwasher Door Leaks

Diagnostic Flowcharts for GE Refrigerators With a Muthaboard

Warm Refrigerator Troubleshooting Flowchart

Diagnosing and Repairing Spin and Agitate Problems in a Whirlpool / Kenmore Direct Drive Washer

Handling Hard Water and Mineral Buildup in Today’s Dishwashers

Estimating Home Appliance Energy Use

Coping with Phosphate-free Dishwashing Detergents

2. There are blogs, and then there are forums is a blog, where I write posts and registered users can post comments or followup questions. Our forums, on the other hand, are at This is where registered users can initiate questions and receive help from myself or other techs. You must register separately at both- one registration does not cross over to the other. Please do – it’s free and I wanna hear from you!

### ### ### ###

3. Website enhancements

I got rid of that stuffy, cramped three-column layout and went to a simple two-column design. This gives a bigger content area and less junk. Have a look and lemme know whatcha think:

We’ve gone mobile! Now you can have to go. I’ve added mobile capability to the site so it’s user-friendly for most cell phones. And there’s a special feature just for mobile users. Read more:

I’m starting to build a collection of wiring diagrams, tech sheets, and schematics. As I get ’em, I upload them to the site and make them searchable to all, free of charge, always. Special domo to Sublime Master for sending me mucho diagrams. If you have any tech sheets or schematics in good condition and you’d like to be part of this project, please email them to me so I can add them to the growing library. You can also fax them to me at 866-315-4504.

I know it can be confusing to navigate a new website so I’ve added a new orientation page that gives a quick run-down on how to use the site:

### ### ### ###

4. Scribd document stash

I’ve been steadily building a stash of various appliance repair PDFs on Scribd, all free and available for download. You may have seen posts at with embedded documents in a scrollable, re-sizable viewer. Those are docs in my Scribd stash. I’ve got ’em grouped by appliance type so it’s pretty easy to paw through and find what you’re looking for. Here are the links to the various collections:

5. Samurai the twit

I had given up on Twitter a few months back and just ran the RSS feed for the forum into my Twitter profile. After several months of that, I’ve rediscovered Twitter as a highly convenient venue for blasting out hand-picked pearls of appliantological wisdom gleaned from the repair forums,, and beyond. I also tweet out new posts from my blog site,

I end up doing about half a dozen or so tweets a day. Here’s the link to my Twitter profile which you can follow to get the pearls I’m continually casting:

I’ve found that one of the best uses of Twitter is for short communications with you. Whether it’s a quick appliance repair question or you’re having trouble finding something at my site or using the repair forum, Twitter is perfect for this. When you send me an @ message on Twitter– a message that begins with “@FixitnowSamurai”– I see it and can reply right away. This is superior to email because:

1) It’s brief! Twitter messages are limited to 140 characters. I get tons of email, lots of it looong rambling, hard-to-follow sagas of broken appliances. If I were to give all the email the attention they need, I wouldn’t get anything else done. Twitter forces brevity. With brevity comes clarity. Or, in pseudo-Latin, “E brevitas, claritas.”

2) No bounced emails. Another reason I hate replying to appliance repair questions via email is because sometimes people have a bad email address filled in on their return email. I can’t tell you the number of times I would stop what I was doing, take the time to compose a thoughtful reply to an email only to have it bounce. Argh!

3) The conversation is public so others can benefit from the exchange.

4) @fixitnowsamurai messages are pushed right to my iPhone and go into a special stack so they don’t get lost in the daily crush of email.

6. Repair manuals on request… free

Aside from getting my appliance repair tweets (and the occasional tweet about other stuff), one of the big reasons you’ll want to follow me is to get repair manuals.

It is one of the Samurai’s greatest joys in life to assist his precious Grasshoppers and Apprentices in their journey to Appliance Nirvana™. If you need a service manual for your insolent appliance, just ax me!

Service manuals on request via Twitter:

### ### ### ###

7. Facebook

I only post select things at my Facebook page because the “etiquette” there is a little different than on Twitter. I average less than one post a day. But Facebook is more interactive and there’s usually more comments and back and forth. The really annoying thing about Facebook pages is that there is no notification whatsoever on new wall posts or new comments to posts; I have to go in and look for what’s new. Since when is Facebook shy about notifying you for *anything*?

But it would be awesome if you’d “like” my Facebook page. Then hopefully your friends will see that you liked it and they’ll come check it out and, well, you know, that whole sick viral thing gets going:

8. Hillstomping update

An Appliantology newsletter just would not be complete without a hillstomping update!

I’ve done lots of hiking since my last newsletter but here are three selected slideshows that I think you’ll enjoy. If you’re at your desktop computer, turn your speakers up to hear the music and get the full experience. If you’re on your phone, the photos will render mobile-friendly but you won’t get the music. Either way, enjoy!

P.S. A word on Twitter clients

There’s a bewildering assortment of Twitter clients out there for every conceivable device and it can be confoosing to figure out which one to choose. I’ve used just about all of ’em and can offer you my opinion on the best Twitter clients by application, just Google them to find them more:

iPhone: SimplyTweet
iPad: Twittelator
iMac or other desktop: Chromed Bird, an extension for Google Chrome (best browser)

You may have a different opinion; that’s fine, use whatever works for you. I offer my opinion for those who have no experience with Twitter and aren’t sure how to get started.

The Samurai School of Appliantology Intergalactic Chat Facility

Just when I thought it was safe to get behind the keyboard again, I went and added The Samurai School of Appliantology Intergalactic Chat Facility to the repair forums. Why is it “intergalactic?” you may well ax? Well, y’see, Hoss, here at Fixit-the-freak-now-dot-frikkin-com, we’re using appliance repair to heal not just the planet, but the entire Universe. How will we ever accomplish such an astronomical task? One appliance repair at time.

Anyway, I was thinking– besides where’s the beer— that this can have all kinda uses: you can chat with other Grasshoppers or Apprentices about a particular appliance problem or topic in the repair forum; you may get invited to a special password-protected chat room by one of the Master Appliantologists for some tête-à-tête instruction; clear up some confoosion on how to use the site, or for just shootin’ the breeze.

The Samurai School of Appliantology Intergalactic Chat Facility has lots of cool features that’ll shake your bake: it’ll “undock” and float in a smaller window so you can be posting in the forum, surfing, whatever, while watching the chat room; when someone enters or posts something, it’ll make a little sound to let you know (which you can turn off); you can also create your own chat rooms on-the-fly, add a password if you like, and invite people or a particular person for live chat, if you feel so inspired.

Log in to the chat area using the same username and password you use to log into the repair forums. You’ll see a couple of permanent chat rooms: The Dojo is a Master Appliantologists-only, password-protected chat room, and The Grasshopper Shack is open to all registered forum members. It’s all free and, best of all, it doesn’t cost you anything, either!

The Samurai School of Appliantology Intergalactic Chat Facility– beam in and check it out:

Appliantology Newsletter, Spring 2010

1. Reloaded
2. Join the Dojo
3. Samurai Appliance Repair Forum Update
4. More Server Migrations Coming in April
5. Appliance Repair Radio
6. Appliance Service Training Institute

0. Introduction.

Just in time for pollen season, the Spring issue of Appliantology is here! Movin’ on…

1. Reloaded

Never content to rest on our kimonos, we’re always looking for new ways of outdoing ourselves. And this time, we went one bettah. We’re pimpin’ a whole new look with bleeding edge technology. Check it out, Hoss: appliance-repair-weapon-of-mass-instruction-now-goes-to-eleven/

2. Join the Dojo

And now, you can be a part of the Samurai’s dojo. Register at and you can comment on posts, maybe suggest something to add, disagree with something, or even add your own hard-won appliantological wisdom for the benefit of other Seekers. It’s free and you won’t get put on any mailing list.

Specific appliance repair questions should still be posted in the Samurai Appliance Repair Forums, though, because other techs can get involved and it’s easier to track.

Now, here’s an important point that has some people confoozed and sending me emails: my blog,, and the repair forums,, are two entirely different, albeit symbiotic, websites. Registering at one does *not* automatically register you at the other. Here’s the direct link to the repair forums for you to bookmark:

Which brings me to my next point…

3. Samurai Appliance Repair Forums Update

A few weeks ago, we started an unannounced experiment where we opened the forums up so that anyone could register and start new topics in the Kitchen and Laundry forums without making a love-offering or passing the Appliantologist Merit Exam. It’s worked out so well that we’re going to keep it like this for the foreseeable future. So, to get help in the repair forums, all you have to do is register as a Grasshopper and fire away! But, Apprenticeship does have its perks and privileges such as downloading the thousands of illuminating attachments, use of the private messaging system, editing your own posts, and access to more forums. Find out more about our new forum membership options here:

Oh, and notice that the forum website is now sporting its own logo. Made it myself, thank you very much.

4. More Server Migrations Coming in April

I know, I know, I just got moved into a new hosting situation and now I’m going to be moving both and the repair forum,, to a shiny new server. Literally. I’m staying with the same hosting company,, but moving both sites from shared hosting on two different servers to a single dedicated server. Oh yeah, we’re talking serious hardware action! The new server is already in and is being stress-tested as you read this.

We’ll be making the Big Migration sometime during the week after Easter (April 4th). Both sites may be unavailable for about a day during that week– not sure which day yet. This will especially affect the forum because I’ll have to stop posting during the transition otherwise we’ll lose all those precious posts during database migration.

The other thing that may be affected is your forum login. The login cookie that the forum uses will be different and you may need to reset the cookie in your browser. But this broken cookie is easy to fix! If you are having login problems after the migration, just use the “reset cookie” link on the login page. Click, fixed!

5. Appliance Repair Radio

After a four year hiatus in our popular podcast, Appliance Repair Radio, Mrs. Samurai and I hatched another one. Come have a listen to our latest sonata in Appliance Major:

6. Appliance Service Training Institute

Speaking of (and with) Mrs. Samurai, she accompanied me as my official consort to the annual Appliance Service Training Institute this past February. The convention was held at the Disney Coronado Resort. Lemme tell ya, I was not looking forward to another garish, rodent-infested Disney experience like those freak shows when I was a kid. But it was actually a decent venue for this type of event. Lots for Mrs. Samurai to do while I was in the various training sessions during the day. Yummy places for dining in the evenings.

Anyway, it was well worth the time and expense of going there (though, I must say I could have done without the anal cavity search going through airport security). Met lots of Brethren in The Craft, including some of the Appliantological Masters who frequent the repair forum. And scored some good tech info on the latest appliance models. I posted some audio and photo notes at my Posterous site for your edumucation:

Your pal,

P.S. I know a lot of you are disappointed that there’s no political stuff this time. Between all the server and website changes and the annual Lenten rigors, I just haven’t had any time for political ca-ca. Is that muslim dude, what’s-his-name, still President?

P.S.S. Would you like to have your very own, personal and autographed copy of Appliantology delivered to your email in a discreet brown wrapper? Well, you just kommen zie hither, bitte. Reloaded: Your Favorite Appliance Repair Weapon of Mass Instruction Now Goes to Eleven

That’s right, my friends, just went one bettah. Now you can find the appliance repair information you need faster and in high-swank style. Daf right, Homes, we pimpin’ now!

I finally did that server migration I’ve been angsting about for over a month and I thought, “Hello? Why is there an echo in here?” Whoops, sorry, wrong thought. Anyway, what better time for a website makeover than when you move into a new server? I couldn’t think of one so I grabbed a couple cases of Smuttynose Star Island Single and went to work. When I woke up on the floor next to my compooter, my bloodshot eye (the other one was still swollen shut) did behold the glory of the new look. Please allow me to give you a quick tour.

Thank you for not smoking.  Have a nice day.In re-building, we’ve incorporated all the latest available technology… and even some technology that’s not yet available. For example, this website is now constructed with a fully-anodized, uni-welded titanium frame to achieve superior strength and durability while keeping page weight to a minimum.
