Hi, pry out the cap in middle of wash pan. Remove bolt and lift up wash pan.
It will pull up hard
Is the wash pan the circular disk that moves?
Yes, sorry for the delay. connection problems.
None of the post are showing up on my screen.
Tip the washer back with it empty. You will see a round plastic cover, that is the stator. Move it by hand back and forth. Listen to see if you can hear the noise.

I will opt out so another tech may help you. I am having problems staying online.
I was able to remove the agitator. There was a lot of sXXXXX XXXXXke deposits, so I cleaned up that. However, when I rotate the basket, I still get the squeaking. Appears that I would need to remove the inner basket so I can get to the metal on metal beneath the agitator bolt mount. Is there another way?
Sorry - How's best way to access the inside of the cabinet. Do you mean from the back of the machine or the underneath side?
What is the trick to removing the bolt since it is attached to the drum that rotates and moves when you attempt to remove.
Done all that. Not really sure what I should be looking for. There is more of the sandy residue and dust on the #205. There is lots of brown greasy film which I'm guessing is some type of lubricant. When I move the drum I don't hear the squeaking anymore but now that I have it this far apart, do I need to check anything else. Do I need to lubricate some of the parts before I put it back together, if so what is recommended? You mentioned the possibility of water getting somewhere it shouldn't, where's that?
I have finally gotten all the parts that I need to finish the repair but I can't get bolt #40 off the machine. Any suggestions.
