Inner basket stuck on drive block

Is there something else I need to remove?

I have to teenage son to help! but, should it lift up a hair and then sound like it is hiting something? If you stand in the tub, how do you pull it up, or does pushing down help release it?
Work it back and forth, to and fro. I have had to stand inside of the tub to get them to break free before. Helps having a strong teenage son with a good back, too.

I will tonight! Thanks for the help!
Standing in the tub is just a way of breaking up the rust and gookus that are holding it in place. Post a photo of where you're at with this so we're sure we're on the same page.

I tried to remove it again tonight, but it feels like I am ripping the guts out of the bottom of the machine trying to pull this off.
It looks all oily, because I sprayed some wd-40 to try and loosen things up.
Again, thanks for the help!

I cannot put it into a high spin, becuase it pretty much quit spinning. I had a very loud squeel during the begining of the spin ccyl (it sounded like a bearing going bad) that lasted for a couple weeks and then it just quit squeeling and spinning, which prompted me into tearing into this to see what is broke.
I hope the heat works! The laundry is piling up!

I have tried heating it up and beating on it. When we try and pull up on the tub, it just pulls everything up, so we can't reall get any leverage.
Any other suggestions, or did i forget to remove anything?

Now, with the basket out, when I out it in SPIN CCYL, it does not squeel anymore. I knocked the drive block out of the basket and cleaned out all the crap, but I don't see where the bearing is??

The problem is that some how the drive tube is worn down, because the clip just barely goes onto the post. less than an 1/8 inch between the clip and the bottom of the shaft, which is why the clip came off.
How in the world wold that shaft have worn down? After all the sweat in getting that inner basket out, I don't want to give up, but the washer is 15 years old.
