IT MAY NOT BE THE BEARINGS U HAVE TO CHECK ALL OTHER ITEMS AS WELL I WOULD LOOK AT THE MOTOR COUPLER IF ITS DIRECT DRIVE. OR A BAD SNUBBER RING, BAD TRANSMISSION SPRING, BAD DRIVE BLOCK, BAD AGITATOR SPLINE ETC.
All front-load washing machines have shock absorbers that are used to dampen the tub movement in the spin cycle. The shock absorbers or struts are attached to the base frame and to the outer tub and you will need to remove the front panel or the rear panel to access them. When shock absorbers weaken or become damaged, the machine will often make a loud banging sound during the spin cycle and if the symptom is not corrected, can lead to damage of other components. Inspect the shocks for signs of broken attachments, leaked fluids or a weakened dampening action and replace both shocks if worn. Remove power from the appliance before attempting this repair.
The outer ring is remove quite easy / inner ring is secured by a screw , you need to loosen this to remove the seal....It is better to remove the front casing , make the job easy Two screws come off and it slides down to remove.........
After taking off the front cover, look up at the top of the tub just under the lid. there should be a thick rubber strap at each corner of the machine tying in the tub to the top. These are called dampening straps. One or more may be broken. I usually replace all four if I do one.
Wiz, That black piece of foam is just a sound dampening strap, no big deal. This is a hard one, I see a lot of these vibrate when there is a false floor. Here are some things to check: makes sure the front legs are locked with the nut. Check to see that all the springs are attached and the plate is centered, I will attach a photo. Depending on whether the machine is walking or just the tub banging, it could be the drive block for the basket. You will have to remove the cabinet or tip it back to check the springs. Catriver
