Okay. I unplugged the unit, drained the water & etc. Then I removed the front panel and top cover. Then I removed the tub cover, agitator, top clamping nut, clamping nut washer, and inner tub. I removed the set screw from the mounting stem, and used the spanner wrench to remove the mounting stem.
At this point the manual (linked to above) tells me that I have access to the "O" ring and boot seal. I don't see an "O" ring, but was able to remove a rubber "bellows looking thing" that I'm thinking is the boot seal, by turning it clockwise. I'm not sure why I don't see an "O" ring. Secondly, what kind of grease can I use on the stem threads? Will lithium grease be okay?
Where is the bearing located? Do I have to pull the outer tub to get at it?
