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

Grease or oil is getting into the wash water, I think from somewhere by the agitator?
Answer Hello Gary,
This is a highly unlikely situation. I have seen in over twenty years of appliance repair, the vent hole on the transmission stopped up and when the transmission oil heated up it expanded the oil into the washtub. Most of the time when this complaint arises it is due to a build-up of fabric softener under the agitator. When the fabric softener is put into the dispenser, it is supposed to be diluted with an equal amount of hot water. This disolves the softener so it will not cling to surfaces and causing an issue. You see, fabric softener is made of 80 to 90% animal fat. The remaining content is coloring and perfumes to mask the softeners' decomposition. I'm sure at some point you have cooked bacon and had grease pop out onto the countertop. As you know, you cannot simply wipe it up. You have to use something to cut the grease to get it up. This is the same thing that happens with the fabric softener. It will build up under the agitator and it will actually change color as it ages. By the time it is yellow or brown, a chunck will break free and get into the wash. This, being animal fat based, will stain the clothes and look just like grease or oil.
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
