I've read some of these threads and saw some related answers from the pro but still a bit unclear - on the loud noise on spin cycle. I have just gotten into buying/selling appliances and have noticed the huge problem with the GE washers making the really loud noise on spin cycle.. almost like a train coming through! I know it is a very involved repair but.. I'm not clear on the part needed. Several different web sites have the "tub bearing" as different part numbers. I have seen PN: WH02X10265, PN: WH2X1197, and what I THINK I need as the correct part number, is WH2X1198. Am I correct that the last PN is what I need? The bearing with the 2 "ears" on it? Thanks so much in advance!

I have a noisy washer (a lot of knocking) indicating a bad transmission, and it leaked at the same time. I replaced the transmission, seal, split ring, washer and what was described as the "washer tub bearing" which is simply the bearing washer. Speaking to my local parts depot and GE, they claim the bearing does not exist. Looking at the GE parts diagram and list, it does not appear, but it does as I've seen it!! My question is three fold: Will this part work on my washer and if not is there another that will? The second question is do you think this will cure the water leak? and finally should there be a space between the seal and the washer under the split ring (there is about a 1/4 inch gap)?

Hi: I changed the following parts to stop a leak, Washer Agitator Coupler- Kit-(AP3964635), Seal Tub-( AP5645738), Tub Bearing Split Ring, Tub Bearing Washer-( AP2045288), Hub Washer-(Part Number AP2045290). I didn't changed the tub bearing-(AP2045289) because it is not compatible with my model. Do I need to change the Transmission and Brake Assembly, because the washer is still leaking in the same area

First off, I appreciate the tutorial videos on your website. With some research I found that the loud noise my washer is making during spin cycle is due to the tub bearing. I ordered new one from you and new washers, nuts etc. I followed your video to a T and I reassembled. Upon firing up the washer, I got the same noise on spin cycle… I took off the belt, it looks good. I spun manually and turned on spin cycle without the belt. The motor seems fine, no noise. When I manually spun it, It sounds fine. So i'm guessing the bearing I replaced is fine. What else could this be? the shaft? If it is the shaft, is that repairable or needs replaced? Thanks in advance for your help.

I have grease coming from under the agitator,when I took it off the spindle coming out of the transmission has a loose side to side motion in it. Is this the transmission or the tub bearing? And where is the grease coming from? We do not use fabric softener.

I just replaced the tub bearing, washer tub seal along with a new nut and the drive belt. I installed it back exactly like it was taken apart along with watching your video. It corrected the original problem of a leaking tub, but now when it goes into spin, it makes a loud grinding noise as if I have a bearing going out. Does the tub bearing need to grease prior to installing the clutch assembly? If Not what else could the trouble be? It did not have the grinding sound prior to installing the new parts. I APPRECIATE YOUR HELP

Loud, grinding noise during agitation only. Spins are quiet as normal. Sounds like metal on metal. Agitator is out, coupler looks ok, and splines of shaft are OK., Splines have not stripped inside of coupler. Will run complete cycle with no problems, aside from grinding. Is this a bearing, or ---? Thanks, Mike

My GE S2100 washer won't spin with load, but it spins fine without load (empty tub) or very light load (like some dry cloths). When it does spin it emits some high-pitch noise for about half minute and then sounds ok. The washer washes fine. Could this problem be caused by a bad tub bearing? Actually I have removed the tub bearing for visual check but I don't see anything obviously wrong with it as its surface looks smooth. How can I check whether a tub bearing is good or bad? Thanks!
