Leaking is almost certainly at the plastic tub seal.   However, I can't get the "flange" that the stainless steel tub is mounted on to budge.

You need a spanner wrench.

This spanner wrench would appear to be a special design that is machined to fit the pattern on the top of the hub.   Will a "regular" spanner wrench damage this hub?   Shouldn't I be able to accomplish the same thing by putting the four bolts and the stainless tub back in place and using the tub as my leverage?   It doesn't appear to do so!    I see that it is not really a special design, other than dimension.   Does the removal of this hub require a hammer to move the wrench, as well as the wrench?

Yes, it's specially designed to fit that nut. It is designed to be used with a hammer to tap the nut loose.

Maytag bought 'em out 2 or 4 years ago.  I remember when it happened, Maytag announced that the monthly service subscription CD would start including Amana stuff.

fill the tub with gas and burn that piece of crap.  I've done about fifty seal kits in six months.  Maytag- you stink!
