No offense, but if you're having trouble getting the agitator out, this does not bode well for the rest of the repair. This is probably one of the most difficult repairs out there. Some additional insight on it here.

You should have removed the agitator first before tearing the machine down. You whoud have had more leverage and the machine would hold itself down when strugling to remove the agitator.
Loop a rope under two sides of the agitator and up over a 2x4 to use for leverage to pop the agitator out.

. i cannot figure out how to remove the agitator and get to the tub seal and bearing assemble. the bearing appears to be good. i would like to know your opinion on weather this type of repair would be practicle for me to attempt. are special tools required for this type of repair?
You did pick probably the most tedious of washers to do a bearing/seal repair on. Not what I would have wanted to start my career with.(probably would have ended up a plumber or something:D). Yes special tools are required. If you havent done it yet its probably time to send the unit to the scrap heap!

Probably the worst repair known to man. I remember spending 2 hours one morning with my dear departed friend Wally :( beating hell out of one of these in an attempt to separate tranny and tub. We ended up ordering a new tub.
