The bearings I am referring to are the ones on the tub shaft. I have replaced these bearings 3 years ago and they are making noise again. The first replacements I purchased from VBX as part numbers 6306-2RS and 6307-2RS. I got the Chrome steel units thinking they would be similar to the OEM. I also replace the bearing seals at the same time. Looking at the VBX web site shows they also make a Stainless Steel version at 4 times the price. Does anyone know of a better bearing at a price less than $45 a piece?

I am concerned that if I buy the $45 bearing, I'll still have a similar problem 3 years from now.

Thanks,
Wings515

Perhaps the sealing surface on the rear of the spinner basket is comprimised

Good point. I guess when the bearings really go and I have to take everything apart I'll check that out. Is there a seal or gasket at that point. I don't recall one but that was three years ago when I did the first replacement. Would this 'seal' be shown on the exploded diagram?

Thanks,

No - it's the bronxe portion that is machined into the back of the basket spider. Moving seals cut a groove into the surface, and usually get replaced

Thanks for the reply. Does that mean I have to replace the spider if it is scored?

Yes, but to the best of my knowledge, it is only available as a basket ass'y
