Preparing to remove tub cover clamp by using penetrating oil
Took pictures of current inner tub status as well as a view of under the outer tub, which appears good to me.
1 Does Agitator drive shaft washer and seal lift off with tub?
2 Any tips on stubborn top cover clamp screw?
3 After removing cover, how to proceed?
Never did this before but not afraid to pursue, so need to ask basic questions.
