GE wcxr1070a1ww problem

2 posts in this topic

This washer just started making a sound like a jet taking off when in the spin mode.  Its not the rubber tension pieces, they are all fine and intact.  It sounds like a bearing.  I have taken the front off and reassembled to watch and video.  Not my cup of tea but I am an electical contractor trying to save a buck in hard times.  Any suggestions on what to replace.

  Run in spin mode for several minutes and then feel the housing around the lower transmission bearing. If it is hot to the touch, the lower bearing is likely failing. Check for lower tub seal leaking down into bearing. Check top of bearing for rust. Problem could also be tub bearing or seal, something between the tubs, bad tub split ring (drive block), failing tub hub.
