Washer has a leak. Trying to replace the tub seal. I purchased the W10219156 / AP4373103 kit. The spanner wrench didn't fit so I use channel lock pliers and could not get the plastic nut off so I used a hammer & chisel. I can't get the hub off now. The whole transmission is turning. 1. Does that mean there is a problem with the transmission now? 2. Can I put a pipe wrench on the transmission without damaging it or how else can I get it to hold still so I can break loose the hub? HELP! Thanks,
ANSWER Hello Mike. You need to soak the hub with break away rust buster and let it soak for a few hours and continue to apply the break away. Then using a hammer you swiftly knock the hub a loose from the shaft. You can wedge a 2x4 between the legs and transmission to hold the transmission, but it is not necessary.
