This has been a great help. Thanks a lot!

Taking the spring ring off was a bit of a challenge. Especially because I was wondering how the heck I was going to be able to get it back in place.  (with the brake springs applying pressure and all).

I found a way that worked quite well.

I took a 6 point 1" deep socket (I used an impact socket, but that shouldn't matter) and slid it over the shaft and applied loads of pressure on it (I put the 1/2" ratchet on it so I could apply pressure easier and the ring snapped into place quite easily!

In case anyone is wondering about the bearing...  the 2RS means 2 Rubber Seals and the -1  for "1 inch innner diameter" can appear before or after the 2RS.

So, it could be 6205-1-2RS or 6205-2RS-1

I used this one:

Hi, my GE washer won't spin now. It will spin without load though, that is, with empty tub. It agitates fine, and I noticed when it agitates the inner tub rotates periodically at one direction as well. When it does spin with empty tub it gives out noise. I have replaced the tub bearing and seal but without any luck. Could this problem be caused by a bad transmission bearing discussed in this thread? Thanks!
