I am an idustrial mechanic and i was wondering if it is possible to replace
just the bearing in the outer tub rather than buying the whole assembly?
Answer Hello Rriedel. No, the manufacture does not offer just the bearing for purchase. You will need to replace the outer tub assembly Y94942. Hope this helps.
I have the same problem, bearning going out. There has to be a bearing replacement besides the outer hub replacement. What is the bearing number?
Answer Hello Muddflinger. The only way to get the bearings, is to order the outer tub W10253866. The manufacture does not sell just the bearings. Hope this helps.

My washer is to loud when its spin you hear a dragging sound. What is the problem? Thanks!
Answer Hello Enrico. It sounds like the tub bearing is bad. You can turn the inner basket by hand, and if you feel dragging, the bearing is most likely the problem. You will need to change the outer tub W10253866 to replace the bearing. Hope this helps.
