The washer was jumping all over the place and leaking water during the spin cycle

I took out the agitator first, then I took out the inner tub, next I took out the outer tub, and last I took out the transmission assembly. After replacing the snubber I put the transmission assembly back on, then the new outer tub and next the inner tub. Last I put the agitator back on.

Tub cracked while replacing snubber

Place tub assembly on top of a milk crate open-side up.
Support tub assembly on milk crate with 2x4's to protect pully from damage.
Remove agitator from tub assembly.
Press down on tub assembly cap, release tabs and remove tub assembly cap.
Remove inner tub from tub assembly.
Mark tub frame with location of outer tub air bell for ease of reassembly.
Remove outer tub from transmission assembly.
Replace inner tub gasket
Replace outer tub gasket

Problem encountered was that the replacement tub had a defective air bell. The washer consequently did not detect fill level and subsequently overflowed flooding the laundry room. The bell looked ok visually. Blowing into the air tube while plugging the inside hole with a finger revealed a pinhole leak in one corner of the PP weld. PartSelect was prompt with replacement, but the job had to be redone in its entirety.

Always test the air bell before installing an outer tub.
