I have discovered the front outer tub part number AP3773838 has worn very badly and is no longer a true circle, hence the spin cycle is very noise and concenring. The washer is 6 years old. How can i receive details to replace the AP3773838 Outer Tub, Front on my own. Are step by step instructions with photos available? At 6 years old, does it make sense to replace this component? thank you for the help.

From what I've read and also noticed with my baskets shaft brackets deterioration and falling apart I've come to the conclusion that people are probably not using the correct detergent as told to do so in the washer manual. Is it possible to use the front tub section if the small rim that goes around the drum is rubbed away by the loose basket....The washer had no leaks inside or out but the front tub has been rubbed to the point that the rim is gone .... The bellows seal is still good and as I said no leaks..do you think I could still use the front tub assembly with this small rim missing?

I need to replace the front of the outer tub on my Whirlpool washing machine. Is this difficult to do? Is this a common problem with front loading washers. I have only had this machine for 1 1/2 years.

Last weekend, I noticed that the washer sounded like a jackhammer during the spin cycle and had trouble draining. Snooped around today and found a junk - tiny plastic pieces - in the filter. Also noticed that the front end of the basket has dropped about an inch and the front outer tub was all chewed up. Ran a light load with front and top covers off. I heard a lot of rubbing and I could confirm that the noise was coming from the basket flopping around. I know I have to replace the front outer tub. Questions are 1. If the bearing is in the back, am I better off changing both front and back outers? 2. Do you think the basket needs to be replaced also? Thank you.

After hearing loud knocking sounds during the spin cycle and burn't plastic in the strainer, I disassembled the tub and removed the basket to find the rear bracket to the shaft corroded and cracked. Looking at all this, I would have to replace the basket, front and rear tubs. Is it worth it? or should I go after Whirlpool for those limited warranty coverages on the basket and the tubs. Thanks for any help or advice you can give me.

I have a bad bearing that appears to have chewed up the outer tub a little. It may not be cost effective though to replace both the rear outer tub to get the bearing and the front outer tub. If I replace the rear outer tub - can I clean up the edges of the front outer tub so no debris gets in the wash? Is that sufficient or does the front outer tub create a seal that is needed and needs to be replaced in all cases?

My Outer tub front edge is being burned out by the basket during spin cycle.I removed the back panel and the belt there was no leaks neather the drive pulley wasn't loose.After I went ahead and removed the outer tub front.I found out my basket has a very slight movement,could this mean I have to replace the rear tub outer with the bearings in it.

My front tub assembly is chewed up but the inner tub spins fine,is it possible for the outer tub to wear out and not have a bearing problem on the rear tub bearing?Is there a way of checking the bearing? And also it looks like it takes a special tool to install the clamps that hold the front and rear tubs together do you sell that tool and if not where can I get one? Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

We get a knocking during spin cycle, the inner edge of the Outer Tub is chewed up. I saw your post saying the bearing may also be bad, but can't find it on the parts layout. Can you direct me to the right part? Thanks.

Would the cause of the inner rim cracking right near the edge have to do something with the bearing? It only happens when it is on the spin cycle.
