My Kenmore 417.29042991 in the final spin cycle gets to be as loud as a jet engine. I think its bearings are shot. In addition, the front boot leaks and maybe the tub seal as well. If I were to fix it myself would it be worth doing? Can I continue to use it before I get it fixed or replaced?

It might be worth it depending on the condition of the machine.  If it's in otherwise good shape, it will be less expensive to repair it than replace it.  Here is a parts list for the machine: http://www.searspart...Mod=41729042991

 

 

The rear half of the outer contains the bearing and retails for almost $200 plus over size shipping charges. (part # 131525500).  It's a big job and time consuming.  The boot will cost you about $60 (part # 5303937187).  You can use it in the mean time if you can deal with the noise.

 

If it was my own machine I wouldn't spend that much money to repair it.

Thanks for the info. Can I just buy the bearing separately and use my old tub?

I have heard of people trying to change the bearings only on these frigidaire. They have never had any luck. And I also I would not order any appliance parts from amazon. Bad news. You never know really what your getting. Usually you get 2nd rate after market junk.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.
