I followed the instruction videos on the web site & when I had the tub out I found a slight build up on shaft where sear rides. I used some emery cloth to clean the build up off so seal would work properly. I made a wrench from 1/4 x 2" x 18" flat bar & cut the center to fit the new nut for the tub. Would suggest if you don't have the ability to make one then purchase one as it is almost impossible to remove the nut any other way. Washer is working great again. We have purchased a key pad for our microwave, parts for a air conditioner & a pump for a washer which we still have as the service man told us ours was bad but found out it only had a guitar pick caught in the impeller.
