You will need to replace the tub rear shell/bearing assembly (part # 131525500).
To do this, practically the whole machine will need to come apart.
To remove the drive pulley, remove rear cabinet panel. Remove the pulley screw and pull back on the pulley (you may need to giggle it as you pull to remove it).
For the shock pins, grab the open end with a pair of vise-grips. On the "pointy" side of the pin press the tab in with your finger (if you can't push the tab in slide a 9/16" socket onto it) and pull the pin out with the vise-grips (twist back and forth slightly as you pull).
A qualified tech could replace the rear shell/bearing in about 1.5 - 2 hrs. I can certainly give you more help if you need it, let me know.

SOURCE: I am replacing the bearings
ok..i will give you a couple of solutions go slow ,,becaues i understand your trying to save your spin tube,,did you try and soak it with wd 40....now what i do is set the plastic outter tub on a solid edge
and let the inner metal basket dangle..and whit a nice 2 pound hammer and i use a nut drive pund down evenly ..its hard no quetion in some case because the metal shaft swell up,,,most inner spin tubes are stainless steel so they have a lifetime warranty...if you can get a helper you can try unscrewing the parts the helper turns one way and you another...good luck
