Tub Bearing

If the washer is making a loud noise the tub bearing might need to be replace. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. The manufacturer recommends that if possible the complete outer tub and bearing be replaced rather than attempting to replace just the bearing in the tub. If the bearing is bad the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit

If the washer is making loud noise the tub seal and bearing kit might need to be replace. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. If the bearing is bad the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the tub seal and bearing kit will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Rear Drum with Bearing

If the washer is making a loud noise the rear drum with bearing might need to be replace. On this washer the bearing might not be sold separately, the entire rear drum might have to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. However, the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

I have replaced the seal and bearings. Yes, it's a big job, but not too difficult. Look up the method on YouTube, that's what I used. Now the machine runs like new.

Replaced the bearings in my carbio washer and now it will not spin or agitate. What could this mean now? Did not have this issue prior to replacing bearings.
