both spinner bearing are bad. The back one has a snap ring which removed and then removed the bad back bearing. The front bearing i cannot get out. It appears like there is a different kind of snap ring of sorts but lots of rust. I cannot get the bearing or any keeper snap ring to move. Any comments of help??
ANSWER Gordo, There is no "snap ring" in the front or rear bearing area. It is a factory friction fit, you will need to "tap" it out the front of the tub assembly,with a hammer and drift pin, once you remove the rear bearing, or vice versa. You need to be careful, it doesn't take a lot of force to tap them out, but you can crack or damage the tub assembly, if you're not careful. And the bearings have to be installed with the same clearances and spacing, for the drum to operate properly.
