Leaking water while washer runs
Biggest trick is getting the agitator off. It seems like it is bolted on. I used a piece of braided cotton cord to run under both sides of the agitator and just pulled real hard. It WILL pop off.
Next the old seal will also seem to be attached. The edge is firm but not bolted. A small prybar will help.
Easy repair to do, but it did not fix my problem. I decided to get a new washer rather than go through further disassembly.
