Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Marty, you are right on in assuming it is the lower lip seal. To access the part you will need to remove the center pulley center cap, then the phillips head screw that retains lug stop **(pay attention to the orientation of this part!!) and remove the lug stop and washer.
Next remove the center pulley by un-winding it off the transmission.
This is where the project gets trick as maytag actually created a tool to remove the lip seal, but you can still do it using a small flat head screwdriver insterting it in the space between the transmission tail shaft and the seal. (The seal fits tight to the outer bore of the transmission with the lip sealing up inside about 3/4 of an inch inside to the spiral cut tail shaft)
Pry the seal outwards enough to grasp it with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull it out.
The new seal is part #207843and it comes with an installation "tool" to seat it back up inside.
**When re-assembling the unit after installing (winding) the pulley back onto the spiral cut shaft be sure to position the lug stop so that it does not bind on the pulley when it is engaged in spin, yet does contact the pulley in agitate mode.

21 years old- it's time for a new washer. This is an involved repair and would require the transsmission to be taken apart, etc and that is no easy task and something I would never do even with me being in the business. You have gotten your moneysworth out of this.

Tips for a great answer:
I have a Maytag Maxima frontload washer that was getting these two error codes. I found in my case it was due to the tub not draining water as quickly expected. On my model there were two screws at the bottom of the front panel (one on each side towards the floor) Once these screws were removed and my husband tilted the washer up I was able to get my hand behind the panel and unscrew the filter cap that is located towards the middle at the bottom. It is a large plastic circle that you unscrew. With your hand remove any gunk or objects blocking the filter (usually filled with gunk) screw the filter cap back in, screw the front panel screws in and try to run another load. I have had to do this twice so far. You would think if the filter needs to be cleaned out every year or so they would make it more easily accessible.
