Are you sure it's a washer and not part of the flush valve?

As others have said. Tap it lightly with a hammer and punch in the correct direction to loosen it. If the assembly inside moves while tapping then jam something against it so that it can not move.
If nothing else take a Dremel and cut the nut away as long as you can get the replacement parts needed.
