I will be ordering the parts for it tomorrow and should recieve them in a couple of days.  I look forward to your posts.:cool:

At least I will know how to replace the tranny when it goes out.:D

Thanks for your help,

did you check with GE to see if the part was covered by warranty?  If you have the owner's manual it should have all the warranty info.   You might find some warranty info on the GE web site.    http://www.geappliances.com

since it is 6 yrs old, there may be a lot of corrosion around the large hub nut, making if very difficult to remove.  Make sure you remove it correctly because it is left hand thread.....if you apply some penentrant around the nut, it might help loosen it.  And be careful when you remove the split ring or it can break.  You should be able to tap it up from the bottom with a hammer, alternating striking from each side....

and don't forget to reinstall the flat washer under the split ring during reassembly.:)
