Amana (Whirlpool) NTW4605EW0 Clothes Washer (5yo) - I need to replace the gear box (Gearcase W11454741 - Symptom: Very noisy Spin Cycle). Before buying the Gearcase, I want to make sure I can get the Tub Nut 14210543 off the agitator shaft. But first I need to remove the Agitator Bolt 14210543. But the Agitator Bolt will not budge! And to get a good torque on my socket wrench, I need to keep the tub from rotating. I tried placing a long board down into the tub, jammed against a fin on the agitator, but still could not get the bolt to move; but obviously, I don't want to put a lot of torque on the wrench for fear of damaging the agitator. The agitator bolt has a washer WP3949550 under it, so it does not look like I can get WD-40 or PB Blaster in there.

Anyone have any creative ways to get that agitator bolt out? Thanks up front!
