Default Re: Maytag washer. Ringer problems

I had the same problem yesterday. Mine has a hex socket that the hex shaft on the wringer fits into. The flats on the hexes were wore down and it wouldn't turn. I just drilled and tapped the collar to fit a 1/4-28 set screw, then put the roller back in and tightened the set screw down on the hex shaft.

I found that the wringer shaft is hard as can be, it will tear up drill bits quite easily.

Hope this helps.
