    I want to know if I have to replace the whole rear bearing assembly or only the bearing which is very rusted, and also if I have to replace the seal or gasket as well so I wont have any leaks.

Hi..
The bolt that hold the rotor on in the back also holds the inner tub in. Drain any remaining water from the unit through the small manual drain tube next to the filter behind the plastic access panel on the lower left of the front panel. Remove the rear motor access panel. Remove the bolt and washer at the center of the rotor. Remove the rotor. Take the top off. Remove the spring retainer from the gasket at the door opening. Take the front off. Remove the spring retainer and gasket from the outer tub. The outer tub is two halves with a seal in the middle. If I recall correctly, the heater and thermistor at the bottom of the tub is mounted in the front half. Just take the connectors off of them. I don't remember any but, remove any hoses attached to the front half of the tub. Remove the counterweights from the front of the tub. Remove all, but one one the left and one on the right, of the hex head bolts all the way around the outer tub. Pull the bottom retaining pins from the two front shocks. Lift the tub and remove the two large upper support springs from the left and right of the tub. Remove the two remaining bolts from tub and separate the halves. Pull the inner tub out. The bearings are behind the seal in the rear center of the outer rear half of the outer tub. Tap the bearings and seal out with a flat blade screwdriver. Clean the inner tub bearing shaft and lube it lightly with grease to protect the new seal until it seats it's self and wears in. Now that you took it apart you know how to put it back together. Make sure you replace both bearings and the seal..

thank u

If its only on during the spinning cycle it can be a unbalanced load - try to balance the load. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Try to balance it with heavy clothes opposite each other. Also try not to overload the machine by having it just half to 3 quarters full.

Washer making noise in the spin cycle sounds like a roller or a baring


if its it sounds like a plane engine starting up its the bearings in the rear tub its quite a large job to do, if its a horrible crunching/banging noise one or more of the spider arms has broken on the rear of the drum which is much worse than bearings as it often causes damage to other things

SOUNDS LIKE JET PLANE WHEN IT GETS BY RINSE AN SPIN TIME


I assume you mean it sounds like a jet plane when it spins, if so, I suspect a bad tub bearing. Depending on age of the machine, probably too expensive to repair.

Jet Plane noise in spin cycle


The bearing in the outer tub assembly is going out and you will need to replace it. Here is the part if you want to order it but you might want to look into buying another machine.

Washing machine sounds like a jet plane, when spinning


I would suspect that the main drum bearings have failed.
From the front of the washer, spin the drum by hand, and if it feels rough or is noisy, then the bearings have failed.
There should be little or no noise when you spin the drum.

During spin cycle washer is making loud noise


If it is making a sound like a loud rumbling sound similar to a jet plane taking off, it probally due to the seal has failed causing water to leak into the bearings. The bearings begin to rust, and no longer round and the noise gets progressively louder. It can be rather expensive to fix. Get a few estimates before deciding whether it is worth fixing.

Sounds like the inside is a jet plane while in spin cycle very lose inside like something is loose ore broken like a belt


If the washer is vibrating a lot, then you could have a bad drum bearing. There are also counter weights and shock absorbers that could be bad. The best thing to do is take off the back panel and look inside. many times the problem can be clearly seen. Usually a loud noise like a jet plane on spin cycle means a bad bearing. This can be costly unless you can do the work yourself. The parts are readily available.

Spin cycle is loud


If it sounds like a jet plane taking off, a grinding noise, it is the bearing. This is pretty difficult to replace. If you do attempt it, you MUST replace the inner tub seal. This is leaking onto the bearing, causing it to go bad.

The repairman is correct. The drum support(aluminum alloy) has deteriorated and is crumbling to pieces.
