I am trying to replace the triple lip seal and bearing on my "Maytag" SAV2655AWW. I am stealing another forum members pic because I am at the office and not near the pile of parts that is my washer right now. Anyway, I have a spanner wrench, but I cannot remove this part:

I removed the bolts and the inner tub but I cannot get the hub to break loose, any suggestions?

No. It will not fit that way...

Not using the insert, the wrench fits the slots. Can I use something instead of the spanner wrench?

You could try using the correct spanner wrench that Grand Master Reg linked you to. If not, you're left with just spit and determination. :argh:

I don't believe that is the right one either ,Boss...I will see if I can locate the correct 'un...

Item# 455550 is the insert...didn't see the spanner wrench that fits it...hmmm...

Found it! Item #535997...discontinued? NLA? Not sure what you use in its place.
Short of this, you can use a screwdriver to split it and then replace it, if ya can't get it loose.

Just put the spanner down onto the metal collar and bang away, the plastic nut will come with it - broken or not it gets discarded anyhow as the new tubnut has it integrated - see pic below:

The hub will not budge either way. Do I need to keep the transmission from turning as well? It seems that as I hit the hub it turns and the transmission turns with it, I hope that makes sense...

yes, if you follow the instructions that came with the kit it tells you how to use a vice grip to hold the transmission against the milk stool
