Unfortunately replacing the bearing is incredibly expensive because you can't just replace the bearing. You must replace the entire rear outer tub which has the bearing built into it as well as the entire inner stainless steel basket which has the stainless steel shaft that goes through the bearing since both will be damaged. The cost of replacing these parts is usually about $600-650 with trip and labor, so it's a very expensive repair and only about 50% of my customers ever go through with the repair.
