How tough is the tub bearing to replace?

Does that require replacing the outer tub assymbly that is listed on this site for around $415?

If that is the case, then I guess I will have to decide if it's worth it to replace.

Does anyone have any thoughts or opinions on this?

I'm loaded with both :)

As a Neptune owner myself, not to mention a factory service tech during the inception of the product, I have replaced at least 300 outer tubs during my career. I have it down to 55 minutes, by the way.

What would you like to know?

Well I am trying to figure out if it worth spending $450 to fix an 8 year old washer. I know a new one would cost around $800 to $1000. This machine has had some heavy use throughout its life and I am not sure if there will be more things going out from here.

Is this the main trouble spot for this model?

Thanks for answering my questions.

The next things will be the door lock wax motor and the machine control board.
