Hello! I'm trying to replace the tub stem and seal but the upper nut securing the washer-cla won't budge. It has actually losened the stem, and therefore they turn together. I realize that in order to remove the inner tub I'd have to separate it from the outer tub. Even if I was able to remove the nut and stem as an assembly I'd still need to remove the nuts and bolts securing the braces. I don't want to apply any form of heat to the nut because the transmission shaft is plastic, and that would probably means spending more. Is there any other way I can go about doing this job other than having to call a repairman, or having to take it in for service? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Al

ANSWER Al, You will want to block the transmission at the bottom of the unit. Take a 2 x 4 and put across the 2 braces so that when the transmission meets it the transmission will not turn.
