It sounds like a bad bearing. I'm trying to figure out if I need to replace just the bearing (W10119519) or the whole outer tub (W10119519). Some other forums suggested the whole outer tub, but I want to make sure, because the price difference is HUGE.

 

Will both methods work? If so, is replacing just the $4 bearing that much more difficult than the entire $200 outer tub assembly?

 

Thanks in advance!


Oops, I misquoted the outer tub assembly part number. It should have been W10193887

Yeah, now I'm not sure that bearing is the right one... after researching more (http://appliantology.org/blog/1/entry-377-whirlpool-cabrio-maytag-bravo-kenmore-oasis-washer-tub-bearing-and-seal-replacement-kit/) it seems as if the outer tub assembly is just as expensive as the bearing/seal kit with the special tool - I only expect to do this once.

The guys will help you get the right part, number. You may be able to find online a place to rent the tool, saw some on ebay that rented, leased the tool, dont know what the cost was to rent. I need one of these for my repair business, if you do buy one and want to sell it later message me here, may be able to work a deal.
