I am going to replace the front outer tub on my washer, is it common or good practice to replace rear tub as well. Did not notice any unusual noise before the lip on the front tub shredded. Have already purchased new washer and dryer, will be replacing front tub and donating both units.
ANSWER Hello Scott,
The only time the rear half of the tub is replaced is if the spin bearing or tub seal fails. The only other reason is a crack/leak. Even if you were keeping the unit for your personal use, if it isn't broken, don't fix it.
