You do not have a "high torque" motor (which would have required motor replacement along with these other parts).
Install a new hub washer WH2X1199, split ring WH2X1195, and hub nut WH2X1193. Inspect the hub on the inner basket for wear. If it is worn, the entire SS inner basket (WH45X10060) will also have to be replaced to prevent continued problems. If possible, tighten hub nut with torque wrench to 110 ft-lbs. I hope you did not purchase from Sears. (Sears sold machines are sold with NO FACTORY WARRANTY of any kind. For those, GE will tell you to call Sears.) If not from Sears, you may be able to get some assistance from GE customer relations if you need the inner basket. Your machine was manufactured in Nov. 06, so most likely was purchased over one year ago.
Note: If you look at the board on the top portion of the motor, you should see a LED light flashing on the right front side. It should flash about 1 second on, 1 second off (unless motor running, then .5 on, .5 off) Other flashes indicate various problems. To reset code if necessary, unplug motor for at least 15 seconds, then plug in, wait 3-5 seconds, then open and close lid 5 times within next 10 seconds.
If this does not rate a Fix-Ya for you, please don't bother rating, as I don't like to see my score drop after giving this much free advise.

If you can't loosen the nut, you can break it with a hammer and a metal chisel. Tub nut is cheap. Grease on clothes = new transmission time.
By the way, after you remove the inner tub,.... you have to take the entire outer tub assembly out of the washer, flip it upside down, remove the yoke that holds the motor onto the outer tub, and pull the transmission out through the bottom of the outer tub.

1st DO NOT try to cut the hub nut off. This is a left hand thread so it has to be loosened by turning clockwise. There are two ways to remove this the hardest is with the removal tool WX5X1325 and a hammer or sledge. The second way is much easier use a 1 11/16" socket with a impact drill.

SOURCE: GE Washer Hub Nut Removal
Spray the nut with PB Blaster. Use a ball peen hammer to break away the remaining thin part of the hub then chisel a trough from the radius up near the nut to the bottom broken edge of the hub. keep repeating this process until the chisel breaks thru and when the trough is deep enough you'll be able to insert the chisel thru the though where it broke thru and pry sideways which will crack the hub into two halves. Tap the two halves out from under the hub nut and you will be happy to find wrench flats on the shaft just below the nut. Two 10 inch adjustable wrenches should work for you now. Set the wrenches so that they are squeezed together while turning the nut in the loosening direction. If you still don't have enough hand strength attach two 3 foot pieces of 2 X 4 to a door hing and position the wrenches between the open "V" created by the 2 X 4 clamp. Good luck!

1 First you must determine the brand of washing machine you have.
Maytag and Admiral washers are very similar to remove. General Electric, (GE) is different, To remove a GE agitator simply pull upwards very hard, GE agitators snap on. Be careful not to pop it into your mouth, that really hurts.
