I removed one the other day (from a 8 Year Old Washer) that was corroded with rust since it had been leaking water for several year's.
Be sure to have some WD-40 or Rustbuster on hand to aid in removing old bearing's and drive shaft nut.

I did one tuesday,   3 year old machine and the tub was stuck pretty good.    What I do,   is take in some rustbuster.   Pour it in spline,  let it sit a couple of minutes.    then Pull up and down.     then,   I pull up on inner tub with one hand,   and use my 5 lb short hammer and pound shaft.    Gets it right off.    doesn't matter if you ruin shaft,   your replacing it anyway.    That cabrio tub removal tool is interesting,  but I haven't had the need for it yet.   Have 2 more of these scheduled for next week.
