Thing is leaking badly.   Obvious seal leak.
    Have assembly out,  beat the nut (left hand thread) and it won't budge. 
    Never had to change one on these machines before.   I way under bid. Lol..

GE has a mechanism assembly because those things are TERRIBLE to tear down. Part # WH45X24614 for the 27" models. WH45X24615 for the 24" models

A 3 pound sledge and a cold chisel will take care of that nut in short order!

I usually use the whole kit too but sometimes have to remove the nut. If you look at the shaft the nut is on you'll notice it's basically square with the threads on the rounded corners. I use a 3/8" drill bit and drill down through the nut at one of the shaft flats. The nut is aluminum and the shaft steel so there's no harm done. However you will likely find that the pot metal bottom of the tub is probably corroded to the shaft too.
