Ordered and replace the shaft seal and push on nut, reinserted the shaft and found it to be free spinning.


I notice in your first post you say you reinserted the shaft???

If when you tried to remove the push-on-nut the complete drain flap shaft pulled out of the pump body then you are in for some fun.

I had one do this so had the experience, (luckly for me I already had the pump out of the machine and was rebuilding it.), you're going to probably have to remove the pump from the machine to be able to get it all back together correctly.

You should have just cut the old push-on-nut off with cutting plyers then you wouldn't have had the problem of pulling the shaft out.
