VMW Unit - Does it have bad Bearing's (Video)
« on: October 26, 2014, 05:54:32 PM »

I believe this Maytag/Whirlpool Washer (MVWC400XW3) has failed bearing's since it's leaking a small amount of water (needs new Tub Seal) and I noticed a lot of corrosion underneath the unit around the electrical part's.
Are the bearings available separately or are they part of the gearcase/transmission?
Video link below, noise starts at 1:05 on low spin speed and again at 4:20 on high spin speed

  Bearings are part of the transmission which is generally considered not serviceable however, if you want to do the work required, the bearings can be replaced. It's a standard 6006 bearing. See this thread for more info.
