During any stage where the pulsator asm (WH43X10027) is operating independently from the tub asm (WH45x10056), the pulsator attempts to move with the rotor; but, it barely moves. You can hear a crunching noise when it fails to follow the rotor. After disassembling the entire unit :), it seems like the pulsator hub is stripped where it locks into the mechanical housing asm-bearing (WH39X10003) shaft. When the pulsator is disengaged from the tub, are the only components in connected the rotor, bearing, and pulsator? Not sure if I need a new bearing also.
Unless the shaft of the unit is damaged or the unit leaking from the bearing. you would not need to replace the bearing. The bearing comes as part of the Mech housing assembly WH39X10003.
