Give up...it is an expensive, and very tedious repair, involving special tools. Your tub bearings have failed, which is all I need to say about the matter. Be a hero and get a new washer instead :)


And hey..about that term "Commercial Duty" you see on machines. If there was ever a reason to sue a company for misrepresentation, this is a good start. Unfortunately, the big corporations have better lawyers than you and me, so it is fruitless.

If they can mount a coin slide on it they can call it "Commercial Duty" doesn't mean a thing.

Actually, I got a bigger kick out of the term Heavy-Duty. After looking it up, it comes back as:

Main Entry: big
Part of Speech: adjective
Definition: large, great
Synonyms: a whale of a, ample, awash, brimming, bulky, bull*, burly, capacious, chock-full*, colossal, commodious, considerable, copious, crowded, enormous, extensive, fat, full, gigantic, heavy-duty, heavyweight, hefty, huge, hulking, humongous*, husky, immense, jumbo, mammoth, massive, mondo, monster*, oversize, packed, ponderous, prodigious, roomy, sizable, spacious, strapping, stuffed, substantial, super colossal, thundering, tremendous, vast, voluminous, walloping, whopper, whopping 


All wonderful advertising descriptions...no wonder people get duped.

How about getting a SMALL package of laundry soap, A Starbucks small? Even Burger king now has changed the sizes to Value,Small,Medium etc. I worked in a grocery store to put myself through trade school, WOW. Even the washer tubs are Family(standard) & Super capacity(large) tubs now.They want you to feel you are getting something for nothing.
