Of course it can be repaired, but be fore warned: Parts are not cheap, but the labor is worse. Even an experienced service tech who has done these before and has all the parts and tools on hand will still need two hours to do the repair. I'd rate this one a 8 on a 1 - 10 difficulty scale. (real pain in the ****)
If I were you, I'd look into the LG front loaders, but avoid Sears (Home Depot, Best Buy, etc, are not much better). The smaller independent dealers will usually match the big box prices, know a lot more about the product, and be able to give you good quality prompt service down the road. Service from those others **** big time.

Loud noise while spinning, sounds like a bad berring

You are absolutely right. Your washer has bad tub bearings, the Cabrio washers are notorious for this problem. The bad news is that the bearings cost over $300 just for the part alone, not including paying a technician to come out and replace them. If you can tolerate the noise then you can continue to use the washer but it will eventually completely go bad, but this will give you time to find a different washer. The top three problems with the Cabrio washer is the tub bearings ($300+), the main control board ($200), and the drain pump cracking and leaking all over the floor ($100).

Hopefully I have helped you out, sorry it wasn't good news.

I need to know exactly how to go about replacing the wheel bearings in my '98 ram 1500 5.2L 2wheel drive...and if it is possible to replace the whole hub... thank you

You forgot to state front or rear, take off the tire remove the grease cap with plyers remove cotter pin remove nut, remove washer, wiggle the hub and outer berring will fall out. The inner berring may be pressed into the back of the hub. If so you will have to knock it out with a hammer. Getting it back in could be difficult. It can also be hammered back in. ( the new berrings must be repacked with grease by you) This is a process whereas you force grease into the berring. The install the hub install the outer berring put on washer tighten nut with plyers then back off 1/8 turn. install pin install cap install tire. after 50 miles of driving lift car and wiggle tire with hands to feel for any play in the berring....because this is your first time!

When the internal drum rotates when removing the washing, there is a metal to metal grinding sound.

it's sounds like the berring are going, empty the machine and spin by hand if you hear a scapping noise or rubbing than the berring have gone, in most cases they are a right off

We have mde9306AYW and it squeaks very loudly when running. What is the problem?

almost all squeeking noises coming from a dryer are caused by the rear berring that the drum rides in. Berring going bad.

True cooler made a pop sound and was a bad odor thereafter

Sounds like the compressor may be going off on overload. The start parts for the compressor may need replacement. Tell me the numbers on the compressor and I can come up with a universal replacement part! ;)
