GE Model #WJRE5550H1WW makes loud roaring during spin cycle. Should I replace the mode shaft? And maybe tup bearing and tub seal? Could someone walk me through the steps on how to replace the mode shaft for future reference? Also how do I remove the agitator on this model? Thanx in advance.

It'll be the tub bearing at a minimum. Here's an inside look at what you're in for:

Repairing a GE washer

1. Pull pin
2. Drop grenade into tub closing the lid
3. Run like hell

You can tell I really like GE washers and dryers...

Get another machine before you waste your time and money repairing the POS... I have put dozens of transmissions in those things and it is a pain in the butt... Take the money for the parts get another washer and save yourself doing this :wallbash:
