Product Description

The tub bearing secures the spin basket in the tub assembly of a washer. It is located on the bottom of the outer tub. A common symptom of a worn tub bearing is a very loud noise (including a grinding sound) during the spin cycle. If the washer is also having trouble spinning or agitating, it leaks, or shakes, these are also indications that the tub bearing may need to be replaced. This part is sold individually and is sourced right from the original manufacturer.

Hello Thomas, Thank you for the question. If you hear a metal-on-metal sound at the bottom of the machine it is more than likely the bearing. I hope this helps and good luck with your repair.

Watched the Video took parts off one by one got as far as the nut there there had a problem with it had to soak it in W D 40 then was able to get it off needed to buy a new Nut split ring broke when i took it off but i have ordered the parts a head of time all of the main parts were rusted bearings ,hub washer,so it was a good thing i go t all of the main parts the belt was starting to show wear. got a new one but as for the loud noise I found that the Transmission bearing went bad so ill have to get a new one. The job was not all that hard the nut was the main problem the seal was a bit hard to get off so i the whole tub out of the Machine had it upside down and put a screw driver thru hole and pop it out that way the tub bearing was the same way flip tub over a pop it out from the front when seal was out found it works better that way then the way it shows in the Video put a little liquid of soap around edge of seal it goes on much better Hope all this helps you out

Difficulty Level:
A Bit Difficult
Total Repair Time:
More than 2 hours
Tools:
Nutdriver, Pliers, Socket set
Washer tub seal leak and mode shifter noisy
Disconnect power and water supply hoses, remove back cover and control panel, remove lid switch, then lid. Unsnapped top ring on tub assembly, disconnect pressure tube, disconnect motor control wires, twist and remove center fabric softener cup, removed hex bolt underneath, then removed agitator and drive hub. Used 1 11/16" 3/4 drive sock et with extensions and breaker bar. Used sledge hammer on bar to knock loose left-hand thread aluminum tub nut(quite difficult on a 6 year old washer). Lift stainless tub out and removed split ring and old seal. Tip out plastic tub assembly and turn upside down to remove drive belt, and pulley. Removed all hardware connecting drive assembly to plastic tub and installed new parts. TIP: install tub seal after mode shifter is installed and do not use any gasket sealer or lube as seal will want to push back out. Old tub assembly was replaced due to elongated and cracked tub seal seat.
