I would first look at the rotor, number K201 in the diagram at the link below. If you tip the machine back, you can remove the K300 nut and pull the rotor off to visually inspect it and the stator (number K200). Let me know what you find.
The bearing is in the bottom of the outer tub and is likely the source of the noise. It is not part of the drive system and is not covered under the warranty. I am not even showing the bearing or tub assembly as available.
That model is built for Sears by LG, all tub parts available are below. As for a front loading replacement, I would look at a Whirlpool or Maytag, both made by Whirlpool.
That does cross to your model, see video below.
I apologize that I did not catch that before.
Usually, once the nut (K040) is removed, you just kind of have to work it back and forth pushing down on one side and up on the other. After several years of use it gets built up with deposits that keep it held down.
I am not sure what gasket would be under there. Can you post a picture?
You can just use the ADD FILE tab or the paper clip icon, whichever you have.
I don' t see that gasket as available separate from the tub assembly. I am going to open your question to other techs because that style is not one that I am 100% familiar with.
Hi my name is ***** ***** I see that Kelly has opted out of the question so thought I would try and help you further - if you look at the attached link you will see instructions on how to change the bearing and seal fitted to your model - come back to me if you have further questions -- http://partsdr.com/blog/w10435302-bearing-kit-installation-instructions/ --
