If you want to take the time, I just replaced my drum bearings and seal for $62.00. No really any special tools needed. My model showed the bearings were not sold seperately and you had to buy the complete tub half, but when you take it apart, you can knock out the bearings and buy them online or at a bearing house. I have a seal part number also.
If I remember right the bearing part numbers are 6306-2RS and 6307-2RS (1 each) and the seal is a 40mmX80mmX10mm thick. Make sure you get the -2RS bearings because they are sealed. The ones that came out of mine are shielded bearings ( -Z ) and they will not resist moisture if the seal shaft seal fails.
Most AutoZones have seal and bearing drivers you can "borrow". They really help during installation so you don't deform the seal or damage the new bearings.
Any good bearing house should be able to macth on up or if you post back I can give you the exact number. I think most brands of front washer use the same bearings, but you may want to take yours apart before you buy.
Worst case the junk yard doesn't care if it comes in pieces or as one piece. Give it a try.
Not sure you will want to get this involved, but its not really too bad of a job.

I had the same problem with my Frigidaire Affinity front load washer. It would go through the wash cycle but would not do the final spin cycle that takes the access water out of the clothes. It would actually cut off when it got to be 6 minutes left. I checked the hoses, belt, motor and pump but all were functioning properly. I even cleaned out the filter thats located in front of the water pump. It was full of coins and other debris but it still didnt fix the problem. I called the repairman and he concluded that the control board was bad and would have to be relaced. The board is $200 and labor $140. It will cost you $340 dollars to correct this problem unless you know how to replace the control board yourself. Only had the washer for 3 years. I wouldnt expect something like that to occur within that short period of time.

Open lid as you would load clothes and hold the inner drum with all the holes in it. Give it a manual turn left, then right. If it spins in both ways the main bearing is gone. This is not a DIY because the new bearing has to be pressed on at a machine shop, or an appliance repair shop.
