My washer has been making loud grinding and thumping noises. I noticed to day that the drum was kind of hanging about an inch to low and wobbles pretty bad. I looked in the gap and the plastic track that the drum glides on is ripped apart and worn down. Is this the part I'm looking for?
ANSWER Hi Kyle. You need to remove the power and the top. Then remove the back panel. Look at the rear pulley at the top of the tub. has the pulley worn a groove into the top of the tub ? The rear spin bearing that is encased with a seal is shot. The complete rear half of the tub needs replaced. It is part # WH45X10071. At the back of the inner spin basket is a spinner support. This part looks like a " delta" configure that bolts onto the back of the inner basket that also has the through shaft that extends to the rear large belt pulley. On your model, it is all included with the basket assy. part # WH45X10079. If the pulley needs replaced it is part # WH07X10016. The pulley nut definitely needs replaced since it is a self locking nut assy. part # WH02X10211. You will need a tub seal that is between the front and the back halves. Thank You.
