Darryl,  you have taken on quite a task here,  After you have gotten down to the drive bell and taken that off you are going to need a special tool to get that lock nut off.  Its boomaranged on one side.  I suggest you soak that nut with rust buster or turbine oil and let it sit for a while,  In the meantime maybe the Samurai has some diagrams you can look at...Ron

There's never any shame in trying, or even in failing...provided you do the honorable thing afterwards and slice open your belly.  :samurai:

Darryl,  Your going to have to have that tool I spoke of in my first reply otherwise your not going to get that locknut off.  You are going to have to have the hub and seal kit when you put that thing back together.  You have the drive bell off,  Next your going to remove the seal and locknut.  Next remove the splined insert.  This is a major project even for an experienced tech,  I hope you were able to bring up some diagrams of this....Ron

Darryl,  attached is a picture of the tool you will need,  if you don't have it,  don't go any further.  You may want to contact Maytag to see if you can get this tool and any instructions or diagrams that will help you...Ron

Hi Ron.  This is a picture of my spanner wrenches.  The one in the middle is almost universal.  Think it might work in this situation?

I am doing the same repair on the same machine.  I bought the service manual which says "Remove the large hex nut using a No. 306P4 Hex Wrench".  I found the wrench on the internet which costs $30.  How the heck does this thing work?  It doesn't look special.  Why can't I just use a open end wrench to remove the nut (I tried but so far no luck)?

I tried taking taking this blasted nut off for 3 days with a pipe wrench without even getting close to removing the thing.  So I broke down and bought the wrench.  Less than 10 taps with a hammer and the nut was loose.  Don't know why but it works like a charm.
