Actually it is a little more complicated than that.
What you have to do is take top and back plates off.
First thing I would do is take the hose of the drum where the water pump (drain) is connected and see if you are lucky to see the wire through that hole. If not yes than you will have to dismantel the whole machine and take the outer drum apart.
Take motor out and than split the outer drum. ( they are locked together with bolts.) I know it seems like a lot of work but I have done it before and it is very possible to do it. Make sure that if you disconnect wires to mark where they go. You can even take pictures to help you assemble it again.
If you are not to keen about it you can always ask a local tech to do this. It will void your warranty if you do it your self.
Sorry that is is not an easy fix.

Kenmore front load washer 970 c41032 00

Your spider assembly has corroded and broken. The exact same thing happened to my own washer (same model number as yours). Here's a picture of what it looks like inside.
This other guy made a youtube video demonstrating the same problem with his washer. As explained in the video, the replacement part cost $200 (in 2007).

After taking apart my own washer, I can tell you that it's not easy to replace this part. It took me several hours to get the washer apart. Even if I were to replace the defective spider assembly, I doubt I could get it back together without screwing it up. Also, the drum's scratched all to hell. Time to get a new washer.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

This part is bypassing water when the valve is supposed to be closed.

It consists of a plastic body, A moving spring loaded needle with a rubber tip that mates to a rubber diaphragm. When they start bypassing water when not energized there is either debris in diaphragm where the rubber tipped needle mates or the diaphragm has a hole in it. These valves are NOT repairable.

When energized the solenoid magnetically lifts the rubber tipped needle off of the diaphragm. A spring forces the needle back into the diaphragm seat when the solenoid is de-energized.

If your machine has 2 of these before troubleshoot by turning the water supply off at the wall ONE hose at a time and see if the water stops seeping into the machine. Which ever hose being turned off results in the water seepage problem stopping will be the bad inlet water valve.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Large rubber door seal came apart

Yes it can be put back on without taking the drum apart. The larger end goes on the drum side. Fit larger end around drum lip make sure it seals all the way around, install spring around seal. Smaller end goes around door opening. Install seal around outter lip and install spring around seal.

Drum wont turn

Sounds to me like the rear bearing is seized up. Seeing how you describe its been noisy for ages I would say the porblem is the bearing. Its not a easy jub to replace for a novice.The entire tub must be removed and taken apart to replace the rear bearing. To take the case apart its only the front panel with the door that that will come off. there should be a wire with a spring that holds the bellows to the door. remove that and the rest should come apart from the inside. Dont forget to disconect the dor switch.
