The wash plates will fuse to the gear case often. Not much you can do but to use a cold chisel on them to break them free.
Why are you removing it?

the wash plate has nothing to do with spin. I would first get the tech sheet from inside the machine put it in test mode and see what errors you have.

Your right wash plate doesn’t have anything to do with spin but a stripped hub under it will. If it will not come off we usually cut it off with Dremel tool. You have to purchase a new wash plate & we usually put some anti-seize on shaft so the next time it will come right off
It's not the legacy you leave, it's the lives you impact

Will spin and drain leaving clothes to wet. While watching the spin cycle I noticed the basket bounced back forth .That's why not reaching high spin.
