Which rod bearings???????

what you are seeing are under sizes for bearings available for when the crankshaft is ground
you have to measure the journals with a micrometer to see it it is standard size or has been ground
or if you are just putting new bearings in during a quick engine rebuild then the bearing size will be stamped on the back of the shell
it will be either std or the .010" etc and you need the bearings with that size on them
anything else but std on a std crank journal will jam the shaft up--or .010" means that the crank has been ground .010" and needs bearings of that size
conversely if you put std shells on a .030" ground shaft , the bearings will flog out and oil pressure will be low to non existant

I think it needs to be cleaned out. I do have a compressor can I use it. What happens it will turn on with the remote and then it starts to rotate and turns off. It might need cleaning but I don't know....

Yes, you can use compressed air to blow out the motor. That is about the only way short of tearing it completely apart, and that's a pain. If you can see the bearings, try putting a drop of oil on the bearings. (baby oil, mineral oil, anything slightly thicker than water) I use one of my wife's diabetic syringes to oil things.

How are the bearings of a 2002 jeep cherokee made? like, are they packed or do they run on rear end oil?

I don't know of any bearing in smaller truck that run in rear end grease. If you look at the plug for the oil level you will probably find that they don't really run it high enough to oil the axle bearings properly anyway. I never tore a Jeep down but Chevy Ford both have pressed on sealed bearings. Tear it down if it is running hot you need to do something anyway. That will be a good way to find out. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Whirlpool Front load washer - wfw9400sw01. Sounds very loud during the spin cycle. Suspect a bearing issue. I have pulled the back plate off. Pulley, belt, shocks and motor all appear to be fine. What...

A loud rumble noise during the spin cycle is a good indication that the bearings have failed. The bearings are located in the rear outer tub. See link There are actually two bearings an inner and an outer bearing plus a seal. Water must have leaked past the seal causing the inner bearings to corrode. Once they start to rust, it just gets louder and louder. You are correct that Whirlpool does not sell the bearings and seal separately, but you must buy a new rear outer tub currently the price is over $400.

I had it happen to a different brand of front load washer and was faced to either, replace the rear outer tub, junk it or figure out how to replace the seal and bearing. I opted for the last and did some research on finding replacement bearings and seals. I had to tear the washer apart to get the bearings, then pound out the old ones to replace with new ones. It been working find for the last 2.5 year so far.

I found a website that might help you locate bearings and seals for your machine. The site has a video on how to tear down your machine and shows you how to remove and replace the bearings. He might have the ones that you need on his site. Hope this helps you.

So my Dynacraft Next turbo bicycle crank arms and pedals were wobbling and found out the issue was a bent bearing.So instead of taking it apart,we decided to hammer the bent bearing back into the crank...

the little balls are the bearings, ie: ball bearings, so they are the size, take them to a bike shop and get a replacement kit.
Your crank is probably not bent , it takes a big crash or something to bend one. there is an adusjment nut and lock nut to set them back up. could be LH thread on the left hand side

Motor wont crank

It has happened to me that, when ordering parts, i was given .025 oversized bearings after ordering standards. take it back apart, and double check the bearing marks. if they are what you ordered, use some micrometers or plastigage, and get the correct set.

I have an oil leak on my clothes washer.

If you have a front loading washing machine the oil is really the grease for the bearings that support the drum. The grease seal needs to be replaced, and if you are replacing the seal you might as well do the bearings. This is not a cheap repair because of the amount of labor involved in tearing the machine apart to replace the seal and bearings. If you don't repair the seal, eventually the grease will be washed out of the bearings and the bearings will be destroyed. You can tell if you need new bearings because when the machine is on the fast spin cycle it will sound like a jet engine taking off.

Machine making lot of noise during spin cycle

Sounds like your bearings are going bad. You can pull it apart and match them up at a bearing house or online. The manufacturer only sells the outer drum assembly with the bearings. $$$
I have more information if you are interested. Most front loader machines are very similar. There are several internet blogs about bearing replacement.
Make sure you buy the -2rs bearings. The main number can be something like 6307 but make sure you buy 6307-2rs. The -2rs bearings are sealed. The -2z bearings are only shielded. Not as good for water applications.
