My Samsung top loader washing machine WA52J8700AP/A2 started making a loud noise and stopped spinning.

After investigating, I discovered that the plastic parts of the clutch assembly had all cracked, broken away and some ground to dust.

I ordered in the assembly and received yesterday and attempted to install it.

After removing all the tub and agitator for inside and connected wires and other parts to prevent damage from underneath, I removed all the inner and outer bolts connecting the assembly, but it won’t fall out.

It won’t release from the plate that the tub attaches to inside.

My question is, HOW DO I EITHER REMOVE THE PLATE FROM THE INSIDE OR GET IT TO LET GO OF THE ASSEMBLY?
