The inner drum is spinning freely from the rear drum. Can I replace only the inner drum. Are there any other parts I should order with the drum. Is it possible that just the spider is broken?
You will want to pull the inner basket and check to see if the spider assembly has come loose. The rear outer drum is not supposed to move but the bearings allow the inner drum to spin freely. If the unit is making a loud roaring noise during spin then the bearings would be the issue.
How do you remove the bearings and reinstall them in the plastic rear drum housing.
To remove the bearings from the rear drum housing you will have to tap them out using a punch. Be careful not to damage the tub. You would have to tap the new ones into place making sure that they are in straight.
