Disassembled top and front of machine. Removed agitator cap, removed agitator by removing center bolt. Removed tub top ring, removed balance springs, removed inner tub drain tube,removed shaft nut with channel locks, removed 7 bolts from underneath holding inner tub with 5/16 ratchet. Removed inner tub. Removed bolts holding outter tub, removed outter tub. (rock back and forth to break up old detergent etc... to remove). W-D'd the locking nut after cleaning lint, detergent etc...,used short steel bar and hammer to loosen retaining nut with "L" shaped ears. (it is all one piece and the whole thing turns off, counter/clockwise removal).Remove bearing assembly, clean and install new, remove bearing seal from tub, clean and install new. ( used silicone caulk as additional seal, let set 24 hrs.)Re-assemble in reverse. Runs like new.
removed front, top & loosened side covers, removed agitator, removed inner drum & removed outer drum. had to release balance springs, it is a good idea to silicone in the new seal in the drum. this will prevent future leaks. removed lower plate containing the bearing & replaced. re-assembled in opposite order. i gave the silicone a day to cure before use, it works fine now. they say you need a special tool to remove the nut for the drum. i just used a pair of channellocks & tapped the handle, & it came right off.
