This is a bad tub bearing, you will need to replace both bearings and the seal on the unit, not the easiest thing in the world to do... If you do it, take pictures while taking it apart to aid in putting it back together.. You can click on the blue link below to order the correct part for your washing machine.

I am assuming I can remove the rear access panel to replace the parts. Also, will I have to remove the rotor and stator, etc. to do this repair?
Does this come in a kit, or purchase 3 separate parts?
Thank You for your help. I appreciate it. Now I can really do some damage by trying to fix it.

I do not know if you can reply again, but I need a quick answer. I bought the bearings, etc. I have the machine apart and noticed that inner part of the rotor where the shaft splines fit into, is stripped down pretty BAD. The shaft teeth seem fine. Looks like when the speed gets fast, the shaft is spinning in the rotor coupling, therefore grinding it down. Is this caused by a bad bearing, or does it sound like I just need to replace the rotor.
It will not let me attach it here. Is there an email I can send it to? The one above, tinyurl.... does not work.
I sent a picture of the center part of the rotor. The teeth are stripped down. It looks like the splined shaft that comes out through the bearings and into the rotor has been spinning in the rotor and has ground the teeth down. It does fine at low speed, but once it gets fast, the teeth in the rotor are so worn down, that the shaft is spinning because of the teeth being worn down. I am wondering if that is the noise instead of the bearings. It only makes the scrubbing noise at high speed.
It is not the spider. There is no noise when I spin it by hand, and it will spin fine with no noise, until I put some weight in washer. The teeth on the shaft will turn the rotor until the speed gets up, or weight is added by clothing. Once it gets speed or weight, it takes more torque, and the teeth in rotor are so worn down, that the shaft just spins because there is not enough of the splines in rotor to hold it.
It did not seem to be loose. I had to spin it and pull socket the opposite way to break it loose.
Ok, Thank You very much for your help. It has not been as bad as I thought to work on, but I will see about putting it back together.
Do you know of anyone in the Raleigh, NC area that might carry the rotor assembly?
