Is buying the tub assembly the only way to get the bearing? On my washer the rear bearing is making noise.
Answer Hello Dave. Yes, you will need to order the outer tub assembly 280255 to replace the bearings in the unit. Hope this helps.
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.
Answer Hello Dick! The original parts of item 21 and 8 now come as an assembly and include both halves of the outer tub plus the gasket. You will get both parts when ordering the outer tub part number 280255. Thanks!
