Greetings all as I am new to the forum. I have searched here, but not found the answer to my problem just yet - as they say, squeeky wheels get the grease so here goes
I have a Cabrio that is roughly 2yrs old that we purchased new - it has been a great washer for us, but now has a cold water inlet valve faulty causing "LF" code (which I have been circumventing with warm water settings), and now it appears our tub bearing is going out - this thing sounds like a F16 on takeoff when on the spin cycle
I have been employed as a mechanic, and have access to a fair amount of tools and mechanical knowledge. I see that others here with different model washers have been able to replace just the bearings upon teardown of their washers - saving the $300+ expense of a new tub/bearing assembly.
I have downloaded the parts manual for this unit and do not see that there is a part number for the bearing, and I do not know if it is a part of the tub or the drive motor. Has anyone tackled this particular model for repair of the tub bearing assembly? Or is it a part of the motor? If it has to be replaced all at once or if I have to replace the drive motor I'm probably in the market for a new washer.
Thanks in advance -
