Hi...I have a GE WCVH6260FGG front loading washing machine. The tub bearings went out and the guy at the local appliance/repair shop told me it would be about $400 for them to fix it...not worth it considering the newer model is only $500 after rebates.

I am however pretty handy and I am good at following instructions to repair my car or things around the house so I was thinking about giving it a go to replace it myself. Would it be worth it or is the cost of the washer bearings themselves pricey? Also am I getting in over my head or if I am relatively mechanically inclined should I be able to figure it out?

I couldn't even find the washer tub bearings online does anyone know where to find them or am I going to have to see about ordering them from my local applicance shop?

Thanks for the help!

Does it really only come bundled with that huge thing that most people don't need to replace? That is ridiculous that you have to buy it bundled with the rear drum and the cost is almost as much as a brand new washer. Not only is it a huge waste because it means it will send washers to the landfill unnecessarily but the price is outragous. Bearings really are not that expensive and I'm sure they could sell just the bearings for way less and still make a profit. I guess they are trying to get you to buy a new washer but I'm certainly not going to support GE if this is their policy regarding replacement parts.

Is that a more recent change where all mfr's sell it as one peice? I saw a youtube video on how to replace the bearings on front loading washers (although it was a UK video) and it showed the bearings as their own part.
