I have a top load Atlantis (MAVT834AWW) that is making a very loud sound during spin cycle only. I have read about this and have taken apart and seen only that it's probably a bearing but I don't know which one to change first Because when i release the brake it spins freely and makes no noise. Also when it is spinning the tub runs smooth it's not bouncing around But the white gasket between the bearing housing and tub is beginning to be chewed up. How do I tell which bearing to change without taking apart and having it lay around for a week waiting on parts.

You need to replace the drive pulley-thrust bearing combo: http://www.repaircli...mber=MAVT834AWW
