I cant find the model #, I wish I could...

The plastic tub, above the transmission, is leaking water and I am trying to replace the seal.. I have removed the agitator and I am down to the metalic shaft under it. I have removed the 5 screws and removed the inner tub. Now I have the shaft and the plastic tub, that I would like to remove to repace the gasket. I see two screws under the plastic tub but I am unsure If they need removed to remove the shaft. I bought this top load washer new in 2005 or 6.. Not sure if any of this helps!

I will need the model # XXXXX look at a break down. Look under the lid, on back of control panel or on lower front side panels.
