Common problem indeed. All of us will have there favorite sleave splitting instrument. Mine is an old beat up Stanley screw driver. You will see a groove in the transmision. Split it right down that groove being carefull not to hit the trans. Clean the surface up a little bit prior to slipping the new one on and your good to go!

Sleave will split in under 10 smacks. There should me a water groove cut in the trans. Possibly your sleave lifted up enough to cover it. Metal is not that tough, or this Stanley screw driver I keep in the bottom of my bag should be in the hall of fame!

The carbon seal faces should be clean and free of grease. Wiping them down with an alcohol wipe before assembly has always worked well for me. Also they recommend running the spin cycle dry 3-5 minutes before filling. I don't know if you will have any luck cleaning them up at this point but it would be worth a try.

Maybe some close-up pictures of the seal, (top and bottom) and the tub without the seal installed would be of help for us to give you a clue.

Take a close look at springloaded bellows area of the seal and make sure you haven't punctured it somehow.

From all the pictures, nothing obviously wrong with the seals.

That little uneven look in the last two pictures really shouldn't be an issue, you have about a 1/4" to 1/2" lip that it slides down over.

When you pushed the spring loaded bellows part of the seal onto the tub lip, did it seem to seat down evenly all the way around and a good tight fit?

You didn't by anychance take the allen head set screw all the way out of the top part of the mounting stem and forget to put it back in???

Did you make sure the top, (mounting stem), portion of the seal was screwed down all the way? That top rubber seal in the mounting stem has to be down below the grove in the agitator shaft to seal around the agitator shaft.

FWIW I just updated my post doing this same job here: http://www.applianceguru.com/view_topic.php?id=10049&forum_id=2&jump_to=56647 (thanks fo the link to the walkthrough).

Three things from me (maybe I can return the favor of help...):

1) Might you be putting the seal on upside down?  In your last picture its orientation is upside down if recall correctly.  The top part as it is pictured (the end with those two parallel threads embossed in the rubber) is the end that goes down over the tub.  The other end has that carbon O-ring that you need to not lubricate.  I’m guessing you are doing it correctly however since it is pictured upside down I have to ask…

2) I think I see rust inside the rubber boot.  Are you installing both a new Tub Bearing Kit and a new Under Water Seal Kit?  Two NEW parts, right?  Not reusing the Tub Bearing gasket (your last picture – that’s a NEW part, right)?

3) In your first picture the two carbon O-rings sure don’t *look* very clean.  I take this picture was taken after uninstall and before you had re-cleaned?

Bummer.  Hope the new parts do the trick.  What a pain!

BTW my new seal was not warped like that, though I can't imagine that would cuase your problem (per previous comments in this thread).
