The front of the drum has alot of play in it, you can raise or lower it about 1/4 of a inch. Every year for the past three years sears has come out and replaced top seal but none of them have had plastic guides as yours shows. First it was putting brown spots on alot of clothes, but this time it was doing the same and also ripping alot of our clothes and are warranty agreement has expired. I feel sears put the wrong seal on. The bearing-drum support,bearing brakcet,and bearing seem to be okay. No noise or movement on rear of the drum like the front has.
ANSWER Hi. Then with all you have mentioned then you need to replace this upper felt glide assy. part # 5303937139 to keep the tumbler level and running true to the rear bearing and felt seals as well. Replace the lower felt seal part # 5303283286 as it is more then likely worn out as well. Make sure the rear bearing has enough lubricant part # 5303307893. Thank You.
