Replacing a Rear Tub Bearing


Rear Tub Bearing Replacement
(Part 1 of 3)

This advice is for replacing the rear wash tub shell of most Kenmore Elite HE model FRONT LOADERS, along with Whirlpool Duet, and some Frigidaire FRONT LOADER models. This is a repair that would be rated as difficult due to the extensive disassembly and reassembly of components.

The requirement to replace the rear wash tub shell is usually attributed to the rear tub bearing failure in which the bearings are molded into the tub and cannot be replaced otherwise. In some situations the replacement of the inner spinner basket (stainless steel tub) may also be required due to the corrosion and breakage of the spider arms in the back of the basket that support the basket.

SYMPTOMS: Washer exhibits excessively loud “rumbling” type noise during the spin cycle, excessively vibrates, or won’t spin at all.

DETERMINING IF THE BEARING AND SPIN BASKET ARE BAD: With the washer door open, place your hand inside the basket and push straight up. If there is excessive play in the tub (wobbles up and down) the bearing is probably bad. If the spinner basket scrapes against the outer tub shell when you give it a spin, you will have to replace the inner spin basket as well. Unfortunately, you cannot see the condition of spinner basket supports until it is removed from the outer tub shells. In some cases, a brownish colored stain my show up on clothing as the bearing seal has been breached and leaks into the spinner basket.

Before starting this repair, make sure you read through all instructions thoroughly and place the washer is in an area that gives you plenty of space to work.

if the spider gear is gone and it's very loud in the spin cycle buy a new washer,you have to take the whole washer apart,and then take separate the tub,with all the time and money it would be better to replace the washer,if you look inside at the back of the tub,you'll see like a peace sign,that's where the spider gear is.

Kenmore front loading waster. Model: 970-c45062-10. Loud whirring noise during spin. I can't seem to find this model listed anywhere to determine the replacement part I require. I even called Sears part...


You have a bearing problem. The bearings can be removed, there are 2 bearings and 1 rubber seal plug. The tub can be removed from the washer and split into 2 pieces (rear portion and front portion), and the bearings removed using a large hammer and a pipe (put the pipe in the hole so it contacts the bearing and hit the pipe with the hammer, then flip over the tub and do the other bearing - there are videos on You tube). The bearing part number for this washer are TSB 6306-2RS-CTS (smaller bearing) and 6307-2RS-CTS (the larger one). These are sealed bearings, and can be ordered off ebay or a bearing store.

We have a kenmore elite washer mod. 970-c40062-00 ser. xc11700832. the washer leaks, and is very noisy. It is 10 years old


Your Stainless Steel drum is supported inside of the washer tub by a spider assembly. The assemply, which is made of cast aluminum, has corroded (steel and aluminum and detegent don't mix) and the spider assembly has broken. The drum has likely wobbled enough to wear a hole through the tub. You need to replace the drum and spider assembly, and tub.

Noisy Spin Cycle


If the bearings are out, you don't have to replace the entire outer tub. You can replace just the bearings. I have done this on a few machines already, and they work without flaw now. Cost of replacing the bearings, parts and labor is going to be $250 to $300 depending on where you are and barring any other problems such as a perforated boot. I do this in the D/FW area.

Bearing noise


You have to remove the outer tub assy from the cabinet then split the halfs, We're told the the bearings are part of the rear tub housing. You might be able to press out the bearings
