Question about Maytag Washing Machines
SOURCE: Maytag Washer: How to Remove Tub
Under the agitator is a flat nut with notches in it. this nut requires a spanner wrench that will fit into the notches. You can use a large channel lock plier. rotate the nut counter-clockwise. under the nut will be a seal. remove the nut and the seal and pull up on the inner tub. to replace you'll need to replace the seal. if the nut isn't too chopped up, use this to refasten the tub.

I do believe that when you remove the four bolts, it should come out. Sometimes you have to use a little force and shimmy left to right to get it to break loose (no hammers please) especially if you have a lot of scum build-up from soap. They can really be a bear sometimes to remove. Maybe put your foot in the bottom of the tub and hit it on both sides to work it free. Good Luck!!! Jim

The brake has dust on it from wear. It is at the base of the machine inside the center were the base of the gear case rests. The brake is easy to fix with one catch. There is a tension spring hold it together, never mind the 5/16 hex screws attaching it, there is 200 pounds of pressure there.
Parts 16 to 23 are causing your problem. You need parts 35-2948, 21001161 and 35-2018 which are numbers 21, 22 and 23. While your there tell them you need a spring compressor for this job. Make sure after removing 24 that the compressor is fitted to the shaft and that it lines up to the notch in the shaft so your retention pin holds the spring until you can loosen the stator(23) from the brake, 22.
