For Frigidaire Inner Tub Assembly with Spider and Shaft (Part Number: AP2107258)

Recently, I was experiencing a loud clunking sound during the spin cycle on my front load washer. After reviewing the drawings and reading several of the posted questions and answers, I was convinced that my rear tub assembly was the culprit (worn bearing assemblies). I purchased the rear tub assembly AP2578105 and the tub gasket AP3212518 to repair the fault. My rear tub assembly came complete with the tub gasket installed, when I notified the staff at Appliance Parts Pros to inform them of this, they instantly credited my account the price of the gasket - excellent customer support! After I removed the rear tub assembly (and cleaned the inner tub assembly AP2107258 and spider) I re-assembled the washer. I applied white lithium grease on the shaft-to-bearing contact sleeves as I installed the shaft into the rear tub assembly ensuring that the shaft bolt was tightened and the pulley wheel was spinning freely (and true). Everything appeared to be on track. During a test run with the back and lower front cover removed, everything appeared to function as designed except for the spin cycle (again/still). Although, with the new bearings installed the noise was decreased from the Cessna that was landing in the laundry room to an unbalanced thumping sound at higher speeds. When the cycle completed, and the front door was opened, I noted that the inner tub assembly had approximately 1/2" of play vertically although the rear bolt is attached securely. Is there a way to measure or accurately assess the inner tub assembly spider shaft assembly before re-assembling the washer with the old part that appears to be in useable condition but may be faulty? My guess is that 98% of appliance owners would not attempt the rear tub assembly change-out as I have, given the steep price of the replacement part and the impending knuckle-busting maneuvers required to complete the repairs. Add to that the potential requirement to replace the inner tub assembly = buy a new washer (hands down). The most helpful information would be how to properly assess the inner tub assembly shaft wear/alignment issue which apparently, in my case, was the root cause of the bearing failure, possibly initiated by overloading the machine over time. Please confirm/correct my assessment as needed. I hope that this "short story" helps someone.

I replaced the rear outer tub assembly due to bad bearing. Now it's squeaking at one point in the rotation and making a fairly loud thunking noise during the spin cycle. Is this likely the spider arm? What should I check?

Mom has an older Kenmore front load washer and it looks like the "door" is not plumb. The dryer's door fits plumb on the front of the machine but the washers door and drum seem to be at an angle. Is this normal?

Is there a way I can determine if I need the inner & outer tub assemblies? My washer is making a loud rumbling noise when spinning @ high speed. The cost of both of them is $473.00. I dont want to order one just to find out both are bad. If they are I would be better off putting that money towards a new washer.

Looks like the bearing on my washer is bad. It has very loud noise when it's spinning fast. Is this replaceable?

I have the drum out and split (what a job with screws that can not be reached), but now I can not remove the pulley and outer drum from the inner. Any tips would be welcome

My inner tub is making cluncking noise when it rotates. It gets to a certain point in the rotation and then clunks down. I inspected it from the back and the shaft seems to turn smooth in the bearing. It appears to me that maybe the spider arms have detached or loosened from the tub. Is that possible? How do I get into the outer tub to inspect the inner tub?

The inner (plastic) tub has an irregular broken piece approximately 4" across all ways. This hole was discovered when the machine was about 6 years old. The machine has been lightly used as it was a second home for the first 5 years . The machine works fine and makes no unusual noises, but the jagged edges of the hole are beginning to rip clothes and a lingerie bag is no longer adequate. Also, will the replacement tub be stainless steel? Is a plastic tub available, and if so, is it cheaper? Do I understand this piece is not available separately? Do I have to replace the whole assembly? For $259.60, is it worth it? What is the warranty on the replacement part?
