Hi Anonymous, there is no short answer I suggest purchasing a service manual, it has detailed step by step instructions, special tools required and how too's especially for setting the preload on neck bearings, which is extremely important to insure safe handling characteristics. Good luck
I assume you are saying the machine is working except the drums not turning? - you need to see if the belt has come off because thats what i would check first if you hear the motor start/stop after it fills up with water.
I think you will find that post 90s vehicles have bearings sealed in hub units which are replaced. take a look on youtube and there will be someone you can watch doing this procedure, it is not a job for the first timer, but is much easier than replacing bearings the old way. parts can be had at any parts store or eBay. you can get a service manual with detailing, steps, and photos for about 10 bucks on eBay. better take a long look before you start it on your own.
Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the belt that has gone bad and to resolve this it should be replaced. From what you have dont think the bearings and belt both can go bad, you can unplug the washer completely and then try to turn the drum with your hand, if it spins like this then the belt is fine and you need to get the bearings replaced. However, if it wont turn then it is the belt that is bad, $925 is too high for bearings. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
I have a 2004 Escape 4x4 that I replaced a front wheel bearing myself last fall. It was not "easy", but it was doable. First thing I did was subscribe to Alldatadiy.com online to get detailed parts and service directions. For about $25 it gave me exact directions and steps to take. It did require some mid range automotive repair skills as well as a large hammer and a hydraulic press to reassemble. About $30.00 for the bearing and about 3-4 hours of labor...although next time I could probably do it in 2.
