This washer has a 10 year warranty on the outer tub and a 20 year warranty on the inner basket, part only.  I had one recently with a cracked spider.  I told them if they can get GE to send them the part, I'd put it in for them.  I never heard back so I'm not sure what happened.  I know they were fed up with the machine so they might have just trashed it and got a new one.

GE doesn't sell the spider separately, you have to get the whole tub.  If they do to your your customer what they did to me, first they offer to sell the tub to them at a reduced price then give the tub to them after some complaining.  I can tell you that the biggest symptom of the spider failure, other than the machine sounding like a freight train, was draining issues caused by what looked like rocks caught in the trap next to the pump.  I dismissed them as crap from the beach.  Now, it is working perfectly, with the exception of water slowly dripping from the door seal...
