After you go thru all that, you'll be still needing a new boot seal
and probably a new tub bearing since water has gotten past the seal onto the floor.
You'll need to buy the spanner wrench for the Maytag, as using a pipe wrench as mentioned above will not work when you get down to the tub mounting stem. The boot seal costs around $60 and so does the bearing kit. The wrench is another 30. You'll need the Maytag dependable care manual
on this website to do the repair, unless you want some more sublime advice from our "multitude of counselors".
