Hopefully this thread hasn't died yet...I have a kenmore model 417.4014200 front loader that showed the same signs as the other posts in this thread - streaky stained clothes coming out of the washer and loud banging noise during high speed spin. I saw the link to the complete inner/outer drum assembly but that part did not show up for my model so I took the drum out for a look-see. I found brown gunk coming out where the rear bearing is so thats probably shot. I also noticed alot of this brown stuff in the inside of the outer drum moving in an upward direction (which I found odd). Anyway, I didn't see anything broken but it did make a distinct clunking noise during spin (maybe the bearing allowed the drum to hit the top of the cabinet?)
Having said way too much, I was wondering if I could just replace the bearing (I'd probably go with the rear outer drum assemby) or could I use the complete unit http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=1063854

Thanks!
