Im sorry, but the rear bearings (unless its changed just recently) is a non servicable part, you will have to replace the entire rear tub section. Also, most of the time, you end up having to change the inner tub as well, the shaft is usually wore out as well.

Cant turn drum?

If you mean by hand then you might have bad bearings on the motor or bad bearings on the drum. something could be jammed in the drum like a pair of socks or underwear. You might have to take the belt off the motor to see if the motor bearings are bad. if you can turn the motor by hand with the belt off then at least you know it's not the motor. Try turning the pulley now where the belt went on the tub. don't forget to unplug the washer.

Kenmore oasis washer noisy when spinning

Hi, your probably right about the bearing its usually hard to tell untill they have compltely gone have you tried turning the drum by hand to see if it turns smoothly if it does then it could be the motor thats noisy both can be replaced but the drum bearing is a nighmare trust me you need pullers and its hard work.
So try turning the drum by hand and see if you can feel any roughness or catching this would tell you if the drum bearing has gone.
Let me know the outcome ok

My maytag model no.mav4755aww makes a whinning sound at the beginning of the spin cycle

Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.Since you hear whining it means that the bearing is damaged and the seals on bearing are gone too so it rotates without lubricant. It might be possible to hear whining while you rotate empty drum manually...
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.Then replacing the bearing is suggested.
Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting

Frigidare ftw 647ghso thumping sound in one spot when i manually rotate drum sounds like its rubbing on something

Suspect a bad drum bearing or bent drum bearing shaft. When you rotate the drum, look for movement of the drum up or down while turning. If the drum moves suddenly, suspect the drum bearing. If it slowly moves up or down during turning, suspect a bent shaft on the drum. In either case, it is a major teardown to remove the drum from the outer drum case. If still under warranty, take advantage! Hope this helps!

Neptune MAH5500 Neptune has progressively gotten louder on spin. Very loud noise sound like bearing going. Continues to get worse. Can it be fixed or too expensive to justify?


If you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noise is louder when it spins faster, then it is often because of a problem with the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, Check if the drum has excessive play.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

To get a quote on repair call Maytag at the number listed on the owner manual, the machine may still be worth repairing.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

The drum on my front loading wash machine is very loose

I recently replaced my bearings and seal for about $60. I could have bought the bearing cheaper online but I was in a hurry. If you do a search online there are several blogs about replacing these bearings. Here is a link for a service manual for $ 18 You pretty much have to disassemble the washer but it is not really that difficult depending on your mechanical experience. The manual should lay it all out for you. There are 2 notes on these frigidare washers: Sometimes the spider arms on the inner drum break and you will have to buy the complete inner drum assembly. I have heard they are warranted for 25 years, but they most likely will not warranty them if the owner does the work. Also, Frigidare does not list the bearings seperately, but you can buy the bearings from a bearing supply house, online or in your town. The bearing numbers are on the side of the old bearings when you remove them.
NOTE- The bearings that came out of mine were 6306-2Z and 6307-2Z (shielded) I replaced mine with 6306-2RS and 6307-2RS (sealed). The significance is that the shielded bearings offer minimal protection from water where the sealed bearings are built to seal out water/contaminants if you new seal ever fails. The seal I used was a CR15939 rubber coated seal.
If you need any other information, let me know
Hope this helps

Rear bearing noise when drum rotates

If the rear bearing is bad it will require the replacement of the entire rear tub shell. This is because the bearing is molded into the plastic and cannot be replaced separately (I know, its a stupid design). Sometimes additional damage can occur and the inner spin basket and front shell may also need replaced. In addition, what may seem like a bad rear bearing, might be a broken tub support on the spin basket. In a nutshell, you may have to replace both tub shells and spin basket at a minimum. With parts and labor the repairs could cost $600-$800. If you have no extended warranty or service plan coverage, it may not be worth the effort to repair due to the excessive cost. Sorry...I wish I had better news for you. I hopes this provides you with some answers.
