I have a Kenmore "VMW" model 110.21302012
I am pretty certain the problem with this machine is the gearcase has worn out. To that end, I already have purchased and received the replacement, as well as a replacement drive hub and belt.
I am now stuck. Or, I should say, the drive hub is stuck -- I can't free the old gearcase from the washer. It is as if the multiple pieces of the drive hub, and the gear shaft, have fused together into a single piece.
I bought some Supco "Rust Buster" penetrating oil. Was advised in a repair video that that would help.
Does anyone have any advice on freeing these parts?
