Hi. I have an old GE Heavy Duty washing machine that has started to
"walk". Having checked most of the obvious things, I wish to remove
the drum to see if I can find the cause of this. There seems to be no
obvious, or easy way, to remove the drum. I have removed the agitator.
My Readers Digest repair books can't help with this. Thanks for any

Unplug washer. Remove agitator from washer by pulling straight up on
it, some agitators have a bolt under the cap, remove cap and look for
a bolt first. Remove the agitator bearing from transmission hub. Get
top up by pressing on 2 clips located about 6 in in from side between
top and cabinet. Putty knife or flat blade screwdriver works well
here. Take the filter flow tube off. Lift top. Remove three bolts
holding basket to hub. Lift basket out of washer.
Two different styles fo GE washers above.

When a washing machine vibrates, or moves under its oown power, the first
thing I think "is it level". Washing machines are incredibly sensetive to
being level. Don't just eye ball it, get a bubble level, and be sure.
