Yes the inner and outer shell are apart with the pully removed, the inner SS tub and shaft will not release from the bearings in the rear half of the plastic housing, I have tried penitating oil, but. connot seperate!
The only thing I can tell you to do (Because I've had to do it) is use a torch and heat the heck out of the bearings. Then place the front tub shell on the ground, the basket and rear rub on top and pound the heck out of the shaft downward. Use a piece of hard wood so you don't damage the shaft and a very heavy hammer. The shaft is seized. Since it's obviously seized up, it'll take heat and elbow grease. Once you get it done, sand the shaft smooth before you attempt to fix it. Once again, you'll need that rear shell. It comes with the bearings and seal.
The tub is trashed. You have to replace the rear shell of the outer tub. This is the part you will need to order to repair it. The bearings are not sold as a separate part. That's what I'm trying to tell you. The front tub shell is ok, but the rear tub is junk at this point.
Are you not going to respond? what is your recomendation? how do I repair this washer,
Buy a new rear tub and replace the chinese bearing with American bearings. That still doesnt answer the " Question" ?
