Hello Sid. I went ahead and removed the the inner tub/basket so I could take a closer look at the problem. I filled the remaining outer tub up with water to the top of the outer shaft of the tub support assembly that the gearcase shaft fits into. No leaks were present so it appears the leak is coming from the shaft seals for the gearcase shaft that work the agitator. The majority of our wash is done using a extra large setting so it would fill above the tub for the tub suppot assembly.
Now I need to see about replacing the inner shaft seals and bearings. Has anyone done this or have a manual in pdf form to post for the replacement of these parts. I under stand the puller to do the job is no longer available and I may have to be creative to remove and install the parts.
Also for those of you that dont have a spanner wrench the for the nut that holds the inner tub, I was able to take a large jaw locking plier clamped to the nut and tap it loose with a hammer. It did not damage the nut or threads in any way.
Looking forward to your replies.
