Removing stuck Cabrio, Bravo or Oasis inner tub
« on: July 27, 2014, 05:44:45 PM »

I have been a technician for over 24 years, and have been recently having to constantly fight with Cabrio inner tubs not wanting to come out. I've come up with an awesome solution to the problem and have designed a puller specifically for pulling this tub. It takes a 1/2 hr 2 man job and turns it into a 3.5 min one man job. Yes I have filed the patent and these will be available for purchase by mid to end of August 2014. Contact Jay At jaysappliance@yahoo.com for more info. I have 4 companies in our area that have been using them and are waiting for me to provide them with one for every truck(they won't share with their techs)   It is very well made constructed of billet steel and powder coated for years for years of durability. Basically you buy it once and have it for ever. Many techs backs will thank me for this. Search jays appliance on you tube and watch how easy it works:)

Two jobs and it more than pays for itself. You only have to send 1 truck for any Cabrio job

E-mail sent to jays,I'll give one a try . I pull a couple of tubs every month that fight. Might save me from pulling the hole thing and beating the shaft out.

Another trick is to put the machine into manual test mode. With the agitator, tub ring and drive hub removed, put the machine into an agitate test. As the shaft moves back and forth, pull up on the basket. You can also try a slow spin test if the agitate doesn't work.  You might get an error code. But just reset and start over.  This works for me 95% of the  time.

Great method low!

Another great way if doing bearings is to just remove the nut holding the shaft and hammer up to remove the axle AT THE SAME TIME as the tub, then take the inner tub outside and use the bearing removal tool to beat out the axle. Easy, no tools needed :welcome:

That does work, but what do you do when you simply need to pull the tub for clothes rapped around the shaft and tied in a knot and you want to save the shaft?  Tool needed and works. Or you could stand there and do the up down thing for an hour looking like a fool in front of your customer that is paying you big bucks to work on their expensive machine:)

Ok, or you ues a tool and make it easy and use the tool. Certainly not saying that my way is the only way, just that it is a very easy way that makes you look like the professional that you should be when charging the rates we charge. There are many ways to do this job, my way is fast, easy and professional. Other ways work, I've tried them all and never had one I couldn't remove. That being said, I have also waisted hours of time, had many high end customers question weather I knew what I was doing and dealt with many days of sore back. Since I started using this tool back in the summer I have not looked like a fool, I have not waisted any time(which is $), have not injured my back. Well worth $150 for the benefit. Would love to hear feed back from any ou the many of you who have actually made the switch and own and use this tool

Tried to pull a tub for bearings yesterday. Slid one inch and stopped. Put the unit into heavy agitate and slightly pulled up. Never been so easy. Thanks low

Say it doesn't go into diag , remove the same parts and tell it to rinse. It will fill lifting the tub then agitate

I bought the tool and it worked great. Low is a very sharp tech. Lately I have been too busy to think out side of the box. If low ever gets to texas I would love to hire him
