Question about Haier XQG50-QF802 Front Load Washer
I have removed the bolt in the back and the also the three bolts on the next level--bearing is still attached but I can't figure out how and don't want to just start taking apart thing that really shouldn't be messed with--Any suggestions? Repair man not finacially a choice.
I have the same problem, repair guy came and said that the main bearing is permanently fixed to the outer tub, so it all needs replacement. I have read horrible reviews about this problem, my machine is only two years old and I'm thinking that I am going to toss it instead of fixing it!

Tips for a great answer:
In a washing machine, the bearings protect the drive shaft from over rotation due to the forces applied to the washtub.
Unplug the washing machine from the power outlet. Turn off and disconnect the washer from the water pipes. Pull the machine forward so that you have easy access to the entire machine.
Unscrew the lid's top two screws and remove the machine's top panel.
Slide out the machine's back panel.
Slide off the fan belt and set it aside.
Unscrew the drive shaft's end bolt. This is the bolt that holds the pulley into position.
Remove the pulley by placing the screwdriver underneath it and gently leveraging it off.
Remove the drum's three bolts that hold its spider bracket into place. If the bolts are sticking use, rust remover and degreaser to loosen them. Do not apply too much pressure to the brackets or you will strip them.
Tap the spider joint gently with a hammer while pulling on it. The entire joint and the bearings should slide off.
Clean up the spider shaft, removing all rust and debris using cloth diapers and rust remover and degreaser solutions.
Tap the new bearings into place.
Tap the new drive shaft seal into place. The drive shaft seal should always be replaced with the bearings to ensure water-tight protection for the machinery.
Reassemble to washer.
