thats not good, this means the main spin bearing is shot, big job. you need special tools also, you will need to replace the tub seal also if you decide to attempt this, my advice is to call a tech ,its probably cheaper to have someone repair this then buy all the parts and tools you would need, sorry i wish i had better news, thanks Bryan

do you like it would be better to buy a new one and what do you think the cost would be for this repair
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
this will probably run around $150.00 - $200.00 to replace, i would consider a new washer, the best washer on the market today is the whirlpool direct drive top loader, these are great machines and have very few problems, hope this helps, thanks Bryan
