When the bearing goes out does the spider shaft normally experience excessive wear?
Answer Hello, If the rear bearing goes out, then the spinner shaft can be damaged from it. You can inspect this part when you disassemble the machine. If you see alot of wear, you will need to replace the spinner assembly.131618500 Hope this helps.

How do you remove the drum (shaft) from the old shell?
I have removed the pulley, but cannot pull the old shell away from the shaft.
Answer Hello Al. If you have the front shell removed, then the inner basket should slide out of the outer shell. If it is rusted to the bearing, you may have to use a rubber mallet to tap it out. Hope this helps.

The machine is leaking water from the bottom of the tub apparently around the shaft. I have removed the tub, and there appears to not be a gasket system for this moel. I have the replacement part seal,tub,t. And have played the video to replace it. Part no5303279394. Thanks
The most likely cause for leaking from around the shaft of the transmission would be caused by a bad tube seal. When you remove the tub seal, you will want to check around the opening to make sure that there are no cracks in the tub itself. Make sure that you reinstall the tub seal properly and this should resolve the issue.
My washer sounds like a bad jet plane taking off when in spin. I removed the top and found the pulley is chipped on 2 spokes. I see the pulley is slightly out of round (less than perfectly round path) when in spin. Is this indicating bearing (tub) replacement?
Answer Hello Terry,
The spin bearing (AP2578105) has failed and you should also check the spinner support (AP2107258) while in there. Since the spinner support rides inside the bearing, when the bearing fails it can cause abnormal wear on the spin basket support shaft which will cause premature failure of the new bearing if not replaced at the same time the bearing is replaced. Any wear on the spinner support shaft indicates the need for replacement.
