After reading several posts here I tore into my 5 year old front load washer due to the spin cycle/freight train that was deafening my family. Lots of belt residue on the inside after I removed the cover. Lots of slop between the inner and outer basket. After I got the pulley off, the bearings look in sad shape. I have found the bearing set from the link below and need to know if these will indeed work for the model of washer I have. Also, does anyone have the manual for changing these bad boys out? Do you have to pull the whole damn tube assembly out? I have also included a picture of what the back looks like. Thanks for any help!!!!P.S. I guess the spider on the inner basket could be shot too...Won't know until I get the halves apart.

I've seen grown appliance techs wet themselves when confronted with this job and then squish-squash out the door, leaving a trail of urine. Not for the haint of fart. More info in this topic.

So are you suggesting that I should purchase the complete kit, which judging from the thread you pointed me too is near $450 now?? I think the washer brand new was only a hundred or so more than that. Help, confused on what to do? I am no stranger to wrenching and working on equipment(IBM technician by trade) and don't mind tackling the repair if I have a manual or something to go by. Thanks!

Read the entire topic-- replacing the entire tub is the surest way to go but at a much higher parts cost. If you feel like spending time on it, try just the bearing kit first. If it doesn't work out, you're only out $40 or so and you can drop back and either punt (get a new washer) or buy the complete drum assembly.

So I guess my next question is..the bearing kit I listed up top...will it fit my machine? Second, do you have the manual or guide on how to enact this repair? Am I missing something?

Yepper, you linked to the bearing kit you'll need, should you choose to accept this mission.

As for a manual, I don't know of one but will look. Maybe Reg or one of the other Masters has one they can post for you.

Here, found some teardown info for you. Nothing specifically on the bearings, just on replacing the entire drum. PM me your email and send it out to you.

Thanks so much to everyone for their help. The removal was a success with only one of the shock absorbers suffering a casualty. I ordered up the bearings and a set of shocks. Obviously the bearings are pressed on and the new ones will have to be as well but do you guys throw a little grease on for good measure or leave as is? I have included a picture of the drum for any reference.

Did you also order a new gasket for the shell halfs??? You should install a  new one now than getting  leaks later down the road......Also, I lay the unit on its side to reassemble the tub assy.....never tried from the rear...I don't put any grease on the spin basket shaft... always new parts  ( sears rebuild)   Most people scrap the unit than pay $400 to $500 for a rebuild  ......to many hidden problems, worn rear pulley hub....... new belt.......damaged spin basket shaft.....
