when washer spins it has a growling noise what bearing is it
Answer Texas, There is only one tub bearing WH2X1197 located on the bottom of the outer tub assembly. But you will need other associated parts WH02X10383, WH2X1199, WH02X10265, WH45X10027. These parts usually get damaged or distorted during the teardown of the tub assemblies to access the bearing. Not to mention the special wrench, needed to remove the hub nut. Thanks for allowing APP to assist you and Good Luck.

Loud noise in final cycle not getting hot sound a little like rubbing/grinding.
A grinding noise during the spin cycle would be most likely attributed to a bad tub bearing WH2X1198.
Hot water takes too long to fill. Is this part easy to change-replace?
Answer Hello Ralph. The tub bearing is not easy to replace. However, if the hot water is your issue, you need to check the screens or replace the valve WH13X10025. The tub bearing will not affect that issue.
Have grease in tub. What needs replacing?
Answer Hello Man. You will need to order and replace the transmission WH38X10002 in the unit if grease is leaking from it into the tub assembly.
How do I know if the Transmission and Brake assembly on my GE WHSB8000B0CC is bad? The motor spins freely but the Transmission and Brake assembly does not rotate easily after removing the belt. I'm assuming it's the Transmission and Brake assembly and/or the tub bearing. We really like this washer and would like to fix it as long as it's not cost prohibitive. Thanks, Luis
Answer Hello Luis,
This sounds like the brake assembly on the transmission WH38X10002 is failing to release. This is a situation requiring the replacement of the transmission assembly since the brake assembly is made on the transmission at the factory. You will not be able to tell if it's the brake or the spin bearing until you remove the tub assembly and the brake assembly is unbolted so the spin bearing is the only part there to spin. I researched this for quite some time and GE just doesn't give any good diagnostic procedure to determine between the brake failure and the spin bearing failure. As a repair technician myself, I just pull the insides out and check with the brake disconnected.
I need to replace the Tub Bearing for my GE Washer Model # WCSE4160B1ww. I can't figure out how to remove the top part of the agitator to get to the bolt. I've read using a screw driver and pry off the top or simply pulling. I don't want to break it getting it off. Any suggestions. Thanks.
Answer Pat, The agitator WH43X10034 is a "snap" lock fit onto the agitator coupling WH49X10042 . You grasp the bottom of the agitator with your fingers and lift or snatch up, the agitator locking tabs should relese and you can lift the agitator up and out. You can also use an old belt, length of rope, or tie down strap, slip it under the agitator, and pull up on the belt or strap, you may have to do this two or three times, around the circumference of the agitator bottom, to braek it loose from the coupling.
