|I just replaced the bearings on my Frigidaire front-loader rear tub assembly which is very similar to yours. What a pain in the butt.... The inner stainless tub didn't want to come out of the rear tub half. I had to use a wooden rod and a hammer to punch it out. I then found that the inner bearing was totally shot as it was covered in brown goop. The dead bearing came out of the tub in pieces after repeated attempts w/ a metal pipe and hammer.
The cost of new bearings+bearing seal+tub seal w/ shipping came to about $45 after a lot of searching. If I had to do it over again, I'd certainly consider buying a new rear tub assembly which comes the new bearings and the bearing seal already pressed. I think it comes with a new tub seal too(but don't quote me on that). Under $140 shipped!
