Sorry for the delay had to go out and do a quick job - in answer to your original question the screw in a converntional thread that is anticlockwise to unscrew however it is sealed in place with Locktite adheasive and quite often you need to apply heat carefully from a hot air gun to melt it enough to release the glue and unscrew it. Cheap torx bits are usually not sufficient, you need a 1/2" drive socket type to do the job properly.
Regarding changing the bearings, this entails taking the top off and then splitting the front and rear case (back off) then removing the wash tube from the casing and splitting that into two to allow you access to the inner drum which is then driven out of the back half of the tub so that you can get at the bearings and seal. From my experience of this job you will also need to change the bearing spider assembly too
