I Had to remove the hub from the inner basket because there was a lot of stuff collecting between the basket and hub. the question, what kind of adhesive is put between the two. Does it need to be water tight? or just enough to keep debri from getting between the two.
Answer Kevin, No, there is no seal or gasket to be used between the tub and hub assemblies, I wouldn't reccomend attempting to use anything either. Provided you properly torque the hub(75 ft. lbs.) there should be nothing to be concerned with. Thanks, and Good Luck

Does the Hub(inner tub base) part # WH45X10027, have a bearing inside of it that can be making a grinding noise in the spin cycle?
Answer Hello Et,
The Hub assembly would not have a serviceable bearing. It would more than likely be the tub bearing WH2X1197 that is making the noise during spin cycle.
I have removed the hub nut, now how does the hub come off does it just lift out or screw out? thanks for the help
Answer Heidelberg, The hub assembly will lift out with the basket WH45X10014 Then you'll need to flip the spin basket upside down and remove the mounting screws from the bottom of the spin basket to remove the hub. Thanks
the hub on my GE washer is damaged and needs to be replaced. The damage was so bad that I could actually just remove the spin basket. Now I need to remove the transmission nut. It won't come off. It seems to be stuck on. Any recommendations on removing this. Is it normal that it would be so hard to remove? Thanks.
Answer Mike, Your post description, sounds pretty nasty. Do you have the spanner wrench for removing and installing the hub nut TJ90TB123A. If you can't drive it off you may want to ty a little heat from a propane torch, or cut it off with a "dremel" tool or chisel, but b very careful. Consider ordering the tub bearing, tub seal, washers, split ring hub and new nut. Thanks
