The bearing is in the rear end of the tub u will need the rear tub and the inner tub, inner tub usally dosnt come out of the rear very costly and you do not need special tools

Whirlpool has plans to come out with a whole outer tub and the inner wash basket complete with the counterweights, the bearing and seal, and the shaft assembly because technicians have complained that disassembly and reassembly takes too long and that having to order the separate parts rather than a whole assembly takes up too much space in the van.
