of our forum members posted some pictures and a description on
how he pulled the motor from a F&P washing machine. So
I've posted his pictures and instructions here for reference.
First up flip the washing
machine over and remove the water pump, tubes, wires etc so
you end up with something looking like this....
Looking at the complete
assembly from underneath. The transport locking ring (pale
thing on the end of the shaft) can be turned anticlockwise
while holding the motor rotor steady.
As you turn it, the rotor
comes off the shaft, exposing more of the coils. Eventually
it is fully undone and can be lifted off. The 4 bolts can
be undone, use a 10mm socket.
With the bolts undone and
the coil assembly removed, the shaft and bearing housing are
visible. Hold the shaft with multigrips or vicegrips (use
some brass or copper shim or similar to avoid damaging the
shaft) and undo the large nut with a large shifter. Don't
smack your knuckles into the spanner like I did when it finally
the shaft down, through and out.
I should mention here that you need to have already removed
the washing agitator ( mixer ) and inside bowl. To remove
the agitator, take off the filter thing in the middle, poke
you hand down inside the agitator and undo the plastic wing
nut. Once the agitator and bowl are removed, undo the seal
around the stainless drive shaft, usually held on with 4 screws
under all the slime and muck. You must undo this seal before
you try to remove the shaft.
can punch out the bearings with a drift. Remember to keep
all the bits.
