How noisy is the bearing sound ???(like a jet plane taking off)??? if so it may take some work to remove the bearing from the outer tub(don't get MAD,take your TIME, or you can rent the "Tony-Tool" that does it quicker if you purchase the bearings from them,otherwise you can drive them out of the outer plastic drum with a pipe and nipple or large punch tool if your careful, but it can take 3 to4 hours depending how rusted the inner is plastic inside metal, replace both along with the lip-seal too, because if you don't you will do it again in the future and the bearings are relatively inexpensive (less than $25.00)the lip-seal gets a little pricey,but is manditory to save the inner bearing from water at about $30.00, again,well its apart do it ALL both bearings and seal and you should be good to go another 5+ years depending on your usage

personally I wouldn't bother much work vs. the life expectancy of washer
