I have 2 machines with bad lower bearings, and one that is louder than normal. It's the one that mounts do the dome assembly to the bottom of the transmission on the opposite side of the pulley. Is this a part that can be purchased by itself, or does a new trans have to be bought? Makes no sense cause I can't find it? :tickedoff:

As far as I know, you have to buy the transmission. I've never seen it available by itself.

That's what I figured. Thought GE was the only ones that did that crap. So I have two good transmissions worth $350+ with shot bearings.  Awesome!!!!!!!!

My Sis called me this morning. Same washer, same problem. Tub leaked into lower bearing and it roars like hell. Put motor oil in the thang twice and revived it. I already put 2 belts on the POS. Gonna donate her an old GE washer I got stashed in the garage.
