For Whirlpool Tub Seal Assembly (Part Number: AP4009444)

My washer started leaking from the edges of the outer tub, but only during the spin cycle. Does not leak during the agitate cycle. Not sure which of the many washers I should purchase. Also, I took the four bolts out of the inner tub, but it will not come out of the outer tub. Very tight around the shaft. Is there a trick to removing, and do I need to do so in order to replace washers and replace the leak? Thanks.

ANSWER Hello FlyFishingGuy. Make sure pump is draining the unit properly. If so, order a new tub seal for the unit. You lift the top of the washer to access the tub ring to remove. Press down and release the locking tabs around the bottom of the tub ring to remove it and replace the seal.
