Actually the complete instructions are packed in the bearing kit. Hope you have all the expensive special tools first!

i JUST PICKED UP MY SEAL KIT TODAY.  THERE ARE MINIMAL INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED.  I WAS LOOKING FOR ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT PULLING THE EXISITNG BEARING, ETC.
i HAVN'T BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE A SERVICE MANUAL FOR THIS WASHER - ITS NOT THAT OLD (BOUGHT IN 2005), SO I THOUGHT THEY SHOULD BE AVAILABLE?

DON'T HAVE THE SPECIAL TOOLS NEEDED BUT HAVE SEEN THE SPECIAL SPANNER WRENCH AT THE APPLIANCE REPAIR SHOP AND PLAN ON FABRICATING A ROUGH ONE - HOPE THIS WORKS!

THANKS FOR THE REPLY.

Fabricate your own tools, huh? You gonna make the upper seal nut tool, the hub tool and the spanner?  Allrighty then....since you are so productive, there's no reason you shouldn't  have the manual to assist you. You may look at my copy of the manual HERE.

JOHNW, If that machine is from 2005, the transmission is under warranty still, which comes with a seal kit.
