My model is over 5 years old with moderate use, this year I replaced the bellow, pressure switch, water inlet valve, shocks, motor drive belt and some hoses. When the bellow and shocks were replaced there was no sign of damage to the exterior of the outer tub. There is some wear on the bottom of the door glass. Hard to tell if the noises made by the machine are different than when it was newer, it seems to clean well. How do I know when parts for the bearing, Whirlpool part 280255 Outer Tub and 8540342 Washer Support need to be replaced?

Is buying the tub assembly the only way to get the bearing? On my washer the rear bearing is making noise. Thanks

Why is the part #21 referred to when you click on part #8, which is the back part of the outer tub? At that price is it both parts sold at one price? Both parts are listed as AP3970402.
