That's not the full model number which would help with this problem, but most of these are the same as long as we're talking about a top load washer.

*NOTE - I don't believe there is a "tub bearing" in the model I'm going to describe to you here. My best guess to your problem is the transmission which is pretty easy to change.

1. Putty knife pushed into the top front lined up with the gaps of the lid will release the clips holding the front part on. Then the front can be removed.

2. Take out the lid switch located on the right side of the lid and remove the 2 1/4" screws in the front side holding the top. The top should come off with a slight movement to the side.

3. Remove the collar from the tub and pull the agitator straight up. Then remove the bolt holding the bolt and coupling that holds the agitator in place.

Now here's where you may run into problems unless you have the GE tool

4. Remove the hub nut with your GE tool being sure to turn it CLOCKWISE to remove. It is a reverse thread.

5. Pull out inner basket.

6. Remove motor connectors, drain hose, and supports on the underside.

7. Pull outer tub with motor and everything out of cabinet.

8. Turn upside down and pull out all the bolts to the base and transmission. Pull transmission out, replace tub seal that comes with the new tranny and replace with new transmission.

9. Reverse order to reassemble.


* Did I miss anything guys??
