    Leaking & very Noisy
    Watched the Video took parts off one by one got as far as the nut there there had a problem with it had to soak it in W D 40 then was able to get it off needed to buy a new Nut split ring broke when i took it off but i have ordered the parts a head of time all of the main parts were rusted bearings ,hub washer,so it was a good thing i got all of the main parts the belt was starting to show wear. got a new one but as for the loud noise I found that the Transmission bearing went bad so ill have to get a new one. The job was not all that hard the nut was the main problem the seal was a bit hard to get off so i the whole tub out of the Machine had it upside down and put a screw driver thru hole and pop it out that way the tub bearing was the same way flip tub over a pop it out from the front when seal was out found it works better that way then the way it shows in the Video put a little liquid of soap around edge of seal it goes on much better Hope all this helps you out

    when we would let the clothes soak, it would leak from the bottom seal.
    I used youtube to figure out what i needed. After trying to get the large backwards threaded nut off with my rachet, i ended up taking it to my buddys house and using his impact gun. It was a breeze after i was able to get the nut off. While it was all apart, i cleaned all the old detergant off that was built up under the agrator.

    Washer leaking and noisy
    Follow the videos. They explain how to do this repair extremely well. Don't forget that the nut that holds the basket is a left-hand thread. I used a pipe wrench and a hammer to break it loose. I used a screwdriver to stab the old seal and pry it out without damaging the tub. It came out pretty easily. I used hand soap to lubricate the new seal and fit it in after cleaning out the tub's seal seat. It's a relatively easy job and now it doesn't leak and the noise is greatly reduced. I also lubricated the bearings with Lithium grease but that required taking the entire machine apart which is also explained in another video......

    Washer tub seal leak and mode shifter noisy
    Disconnect power and water supply hoses, remove back cover and control panel, remove lid switch, then lid. Unsnapped top ring on tub assembly, disconnect pressure tube, disconnect motor control wires, twist and remove center fabric softener cup, removed hex bolt underneath, then removed agitator and drive hub. Used 1 11/16" 3/4 drive socket with extensions and breaker bar. Used sledge hammer on bar to knock loose left-hand thread aluminum tub nut(quite difficult on a 6 year old washer). Lift stainless tub out and removed split ring and old seal. Tip out plastic tub assembly and turn upside down to remove drive belt, and pulley. Removed all hardware connecting drive assembly to plastic tub and installed new parts. TIP: install tub seal after mode shifter is installed and do not use any gasket sealer or lube as seal will want to push back out. Old tub assembly was replaced due to elongated and cracked tub seal seat.

    Extreme loud noise in spin cycles
    First, be aware that the videos provided for instructions are done with a new, or unused appliance, no gook, liint, or frozen connections to contend with. One of the tools recommended for use was a "spanner wrench". If you Google spanner wrench, you find that what the demonstrator calls a spanner wrench, is not a spanner wrench. After further research I located a TJOTB123A which closely resembled the demonstrated tool and did the difficult job of removing the HUB NUT. Ended up a week later, after ordering more parts, replacing all the parts recommended and many others. Slightly reduced the loud spin cycle vibrating roar, but satisfied that worn and many used parts are now new, and machine is doing it's job fine.

    water leaking from center of drum
    first I shut off water and unplugged the washer. 2nd I removed the cover from the front of the machine. Then I removed six 1/4 screws with a nut driver from the back control panel, And two more from the front of the machine to remove the lid. I left all wires connected and swung to the side out of the way. Next I removed the agitator with a good tug. then I used a 7/16 socket on a 3/8 drive ratchet wrench to remove the bolt from the center. Then I could slip off the cover easily to exposé the 1 11/16 nut.I used a special wrench I had made to removed the nut ( it was a little snug).Then I removed the drum from the machine. I could see the spacer and washer and seal. Then I tapped a wedge in the slot of the split nut,(it came off easy).I pulled the washer off and the seal was right under it. I pried the seal out, then reinstalled the new one with some dish washing soap on it. then I reinstalled the rest in reverse order. It took about two hours.
