Reading all the reviews and drawing from the experience shared on Parts Select for this problem saved me a lot of time and money. Two particular remarks saved my day: - always buy the hub nut, Part Number PS271505 when you have to replace the Inner Tub Base Hub, Part Number PS273296 and do not even attempt / waste time to try to loosen the hub nut, just use a chisel and remove it that way. The replacement of the parts where simple and quick after the hub nut was gone, the result is a working washer. Doing this myself saved me a couple $100.-'s as we where quoted well over $200.- by a repair company to fix this and it is really a simple thing to do yourself. Shipping of the parts was extremely quick - thanks for the great service
