I need to replace the bearing on my washer. Loud noises on spin cycle and oil in a spin pattern on the floor. Can I replace the bearing assembly ALONE using the tool, or do I have to replace the entire outer tub?
Answer Bob, Yes, you can install the tub bearing/seal kit W10435302 using the tool W10447783. At present the outer tub is available W10193886, should you choose to use that option. The new bearing and seal kit will solve your issue, just make sure you review the instructions and use the tool, the tool will properly align and seat the bearings in the drum and you shouldn't need to worry about alignment and seating clearances.
