I was receiving the OL code on this Whirlpool Cabrio (Model WTW6400SW3) top load washer and I read that there is probably gunk and buildup on the shaft. I was able to get everything apart down to where the inner basket is supposed to lift out. I was able to get the hub assembly out but the inner basket still will not come out. It looks like there may be a plastic lock nut keeping the basket from coming out but in all of the parts diagrams and videos I have found there is no such part. It looks like it should just pull right off. I have been soaking it with vinegar and other things to try to get it to release but nothing is working.

Does anybody know if this plastic piece that looks like it may be a lock nut is actually a lock nut or should it just pull out? Any other tricks or things to try would be much appreciated.

PART # 280145 FROM SEARS SHOULD DO THE TRICK.

Part number 280145 looks like the hub. I've already got a new hub assembly ordered but I still cannot get the inner basket out to clean all the buildup off of the shaft. I keep soaking it and hitting it with a rubber mallet to hopefully loosen it up so the basket will lift out but no luck yet. Any advice other than what I have been doing?
