I'm not sure I can help, but I'm curious. What is the inner tub shaft seal? Do you have a photo?

On the front loader you have a front half and a rear half of the outer tub. In the rear half where the shaft that holds the inner tub and goes thru the rear half of the outer tub there is a seal to prevent water from getting into the bearings.

One guy gave the size of the bearings not long ago:
6206-2RS Bearing & 6207-2RS Bearing
I would bet you could take the seal somewhere to a hydraulic shop and get a matching seal.

You have to replace the outer tub (rear half). I am doing one as we speak. The part # for your model is 285983 and it lists for around $400.

Fortunately after speaking with WP, I got them to concession half the part cost.

That is what I don't want to do is buy the whole rear half of the outter tub. On the Neptunes you can purchuse the seal seperatly so I can replace the bearings and put in a new seal. That is what I want to do with the Whirlpool also but I am unable to find a seal so far that is. I haven't given up yet.

on Youtube.com there is a guy selling a tool to do the rear bearing on neptunes... it call a tony tool.. step by step video on how it done...6206-2RS Bearing & 6207-2RS Bearing are sealed bearings . They are sealed for water But Not for soap.. the foam from over soaping gets into the bearings and forces out the grease causing the bearing to fail..

I made my own puller to remove and install neptune bearings and have been using the seal kit 12002022 from WP.
I need the seal for the WP Duet front loader.
