Pedal crank bearing have gone bad is this hard to replace

Not very hard, but you might need special tools. Park tools has excellent tools and good pictures that can be helpful. There are a couple of varieties of how these bearings go together. The old standard style is pretty simple, but you have to fiddle a bit to get the locknut good and tight while keeping the bearing just snug enough to move freely but have very little play. The fancier ones use a sealed bearing which doesn't have to be adjusted.

Kenmore oasis washer noisy when spinning

Hi, your probably right about the bearing its usually hard to tell untill they have compltely gone have you tried turning the drum by hand to see if it turns smoothly if it does then it could be the motor thats noisy both can be replaced but the drum bearing is a nighmare trust me you need pullers and its hard work.
So try turning the drum by hand and see if you can feel any roughness or catching this would tell you if the drum bearing has gone.
Let me know the outcome ok

The abs starts without steppin on the brake pedal Hard

One of the speed sensors are bad. They do this when the air gap is too large. You will need a scanner to find out which one. But there are some ways you can figure it out without a scanner. It is usually a front sensor. Check the front bearings for play. Usually the one with play in it is the bad one. If non have play or noise coming from them. Just replace one, then drive it. If the problem is gone, good. If it isn't gone. Take the bearing you just took off and bolt it to the other side. Then it should be fixed.

The bearings of my Dyson are gone. Are they

can it be fixed? it easy? no not by a long shot.there are two bearings in the drum one you will never get to needs factory tools to take apart. the other is the main steel bearing the drum spins it is possable to get a patten mached bearing from a bearing supplyers but...this is just the bearing not the water seal and 9 out of 10 times its the water seal that go's and washes the greese out of the bearing and the bearing starts to rust and then grinds itself away and collapes!so it may fix it for a while 3-6 months at a the bearing is pushed into the drum on a large press like a car wheel bearing.i had to use a 50 ton press to fit my bearing back in! and as to getting the old one out well thats another alot of people don't have the time or skill to do this so they end up as scrap or on i paid alot of money and fitted a stainless steel bearing into mine and its not had a problem in 10 months so if you do give it a go to replace the bearing thats the best way to go.

Removing bearing

Sometimes heating the outer ring of the bearing with a propane torch helps to resolve this problem.
