This part fixes the following symptoms:
I had to remove the back lower panel with a nut driver (approximately 8 screws) as well as the front panel which is removed by poping the top of the unit removing 2 screws and swinging the panel down and lifting off. Remove the bleach fill cap (pry off). You'll need a long extension on your ratchet to remove the bolt holding on the agitator. Next remove the inner tub which is held on by 4 bolts. The outer tub is a bit more difficult. You will need to remove all 4 shoulder screws from the top as well as the six that anchor it to the spring assembly around the bottom skirt. Since it was 7 years old I had to muscle the outer tub and rotate it to get around the inner tub transmission flange. I'm not sure which of the 3 parts were leaking so I ordered and replaced all 3.I don't know if it was necessary but I scraped and cleaned the aluminum flange plates where the gaskets seated.At this point it was easy to replace the tub to housing gasket and tub/housing seal. During reassembly I also replaced the basket to centerpost gasket. I went with standard delivery but got the parts the next day.

These gaskets and seals were relatively easy to get to. I replaced all 3. Put machine back together, but washer still leaked. I ended up having to remove more components down along the center shaft towards the transmission. I found that the "tub seal" was worn out. I also replaced the "seal nut assembly" and "O-ring" while I was at it. The seal nut and tub seal were more difficult to remove without the proper tool, but a bigger rubber mallet and strategically placed pliers were enough to break them loose. Once all parts showed up the washer went back together easily and it is now leak-free.
first we looked at schematics on your web site to see what we thought was wrong and if we felt we could do ourselves. It appeared to be seals and gaskets, so we went for it and carefully took the washer apart. We ordered the parts, cleaned the parts we had such as the tub, and were all ready to put back together when the parts arrived. Again, using your pictures, we reasselbled and when we tested, it worked better than it had been in a long time. And we saved a large repair bill!
removed tub and installed all new seals presto no leaks works great
Removed the inner basket and outer tub to replace the gasket and rubber seal. just had to remove about a dozen screws to get it out.Tipped the machine up to replace the belt.The noise didn't go away at first. I decided to spray all the pulleys with some silicone spray, that did the trick.
