You have to take the tub out, take off the rotor from the bottom of the washer, remove 4 bolts and take off the stator, take off the bearing retaining nut, then drive the 2 bearings out with a drift. I bought the bearings online for 20 bucks from a supplier (VBX). They are standard metric bearings number 6005 and 6006. I put some silicone grease on the shaft seal and drove the new bearings into place. Then reassembled, and the washer is whisper quiet.

    I went to the VXB website. was there any particular ones you recommend
    6005 yielded 20 results and 6006 yielded 24 results.
    thanks again, I refuse to pay 600+ fora new tub and assembly.

  • John McNary May 17, 2011

    the numbers 6005 and 6006 indicate the inner and outer diameter of the bearing. any of the bearings should work. The difference is going to be in the quality. I think I went midgrade and avoided Chinese made bearings. .
    One warning I forgot. When you take the stator off, its going to dangle by the wires. Be careful that they don't get damaged during repair. Also, be mindful not to hit the threads on the driveshaft

  • scratchsniff May 17, 2011

    Thanks John,
    I really appreciate the heads up and info to do this right.

  • John McNary May 30, 2011

    Hey scratchy, did you get your bearings replaced OK?

  • scratchsniff Jun 01, 2011

    not yet, my computer died on me recently so I had to get that working to get ready for summer school. what is the best method to remove these bearings? I plan on taking care of this next weekend. thanks again.

    Which way to the bearings come out? "in" towards the inside of the tub, or "out" towards the stator?

    which way do the bearings come out? "in" towards the tub, or "out" toward the stater?

  • My6008u2 Aug 05, 2011

    Let me re-phrase the previous post. Which way does the shaft come out?

  • John McNary Aug 29, 2011

    The larger bearing is at the top of the shaft (tub side), the smaller one at the bottom. Thread the nut back onto the shaft to protect the threads, then drive it up towards the tub with a mallet. if you can hold a block of wood on it while you strike it that would be best.. Once it is out of the way, you will put a drift (or heavy screwdriver) through the middle hole of the bearing and drive the other bearing out,

Kylie is right, my washer is less than 2 years old, I have had the noisy spin for about 6 months, I finally had to replace the bearings, you were lucky, normally the they recommend a replacement ($250 plus shipping and ins.) for the entire tub/drive assembly, as there are no factory replacement parts, common bearings 6005, 6006

I have the same washer. With same problems. Best Buy came out every 6 month to lube the bearings. BUT ONLY TO USE VASELINE!!! After my third call, they had a expert (A REAL REPAIR MAN) come out and ordered new bearings. When the new ones came in, they are a new design totally! Running wonderful now.

Hi! My GE front loading washer is stopping during the spin cycle, and will not spin. The problem was preceded by louder than usual spin cycles. Any suggestions??


Sounds like the main center bearing is going bad that's why it is not wanting to spin on its own and is also making the loud noise when its spinning i.e. sounding like a jet engine firing up or metal grinding noise. The bearing is probably welded to the shaft now. I would not repair this very expensive cost around $300 to $600 to fix I would go buy a good quality used one or a new one sorry for the bad news but that's what it is I see 2 of these a week in my shop same problem but hope this helps.

My front load washer has started making noise during its final spin cycle. It has been doing this for about 1 month now. The washer is about 2 years old and has been fine until now. What could my problem...


IF YOU REACH IN THE TUB AND SPIN THE BASKET BY HAND IT SHOULD BE SILENT. IF THERE IS NOISE THIS WOULD BE A TUB BEARING. EXPENSIVE TO REPAIR EVEN THO THE REAR TUB SHELL IS A PART ONLY WARRANTY FOR TEN YEARS MOST OF THE TIME. OVER PROBLEMS CAN BE A STRUT, OR THINGS IN THE PUMP. IF IT IS THE TUB BEARING YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO TALK TO SOME ONE IN THE SAME ROOM WHEN IT IS SPINNING. THIS PROBLEM NEEDS ATTENTION SOON. LET ME KNOW IF I CAN FUTHER ASSIST YOU.

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle


if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance

Loud dry sounding spin cycle


cabrio and calypso have some issues with either main bearing problems or brake drive issues, either or this is an expensive fix, so if you have an extended wty, call your service provider, if not, just replace it, repair most likely in excess of 600.

Makes horrible noise during spin cycle only


The bearings have most likely gone bad. This is a very common problem with the front load washer when powder soap is used.
