Hey guys, so I got the screws and nuts undone, but it appears that the bowl is really really stuck on,
Iím probably gonna spray a bit of penetrating oil or fluid around the gap tomorrow morning, just to try and help loosen them that way I can get a better look underneath

Hi Adam,

The wash tub, should just lift out without having to under do the nuts & bolts in the tub, however if the owner rarely took it out then i guess it could become really stuck on the centre shaft.

I had one once where there wasn't separate balancer under the wash tub and it had been replaced with a thicker plate under the tub which made it really hard to get the tub out.

Cheers Keith

Oh sorry, I didnít actually meant the

Bowl where the clothes are washed and spun, I meant the outer tub as Iíve undone the three screws that hold the control column on as well as the two bolts at the bottom of the tub, Iíll give it a try tomorrow But it seems really stuck in place, Iím waiting to get a better view of the internal transmission and stuff like that as I think some stuff was physically damaged during transit
