Based on other thread descriptions, it appears I need to replace the bearings. Though it will take more time, I would prefer to replace just the bearings and not the entire drum... The bearing kit referenced in other threads does NOT refer to my specific part number. Can someone please confirm which bearing kit I need to order:?

Thanks...

Some info that may help from an anonymously-written repair guide on replacing the entire drum:

Bearing and Seal notes: This is from a bearing specialist that replaced just the bearings on his washer, saving over $150 versus buying the entire back half of the tub that is sold by the manufacturer with the bearings intact.

The inboard bearing is a 6307-2RS. The outboard was a 6306-2RS. I haven't taken a caliper to the seal but I don't think it's anything special, just make sure it's a good quality double lip seal. I'm going to try to get a rubber coated one too for addition water resistance.

If you live in the Seattle area, go to US Bearings and Drives for some SKF bearings (a 6306-2RSC3 and 6307-2RSC3)

Has anyone put together a step by step process for changing out these bearings?

OR

Is there a Repair/Maintenance Manual for this model???

Here is the service manual (yours is the first generation with DC drive but mechanicals are the same)- as stated elsewhere in this forum the "bearing replacement" is a method of repair using parts NOT available from the manufacturer. A bearing is a bearing, unfortunately the seal is the tough one to match, built to Frigidaire specs but not available for retail or through our industry supply chains.  As for how to remove the bearing & reinstall - they are just like these seen on the Maytag Neptune.

Check out this post for many DIYers who have made similar repairs on this style washer.
