Bryan :

ok well the outer tub Rear) with the bearing is the only way they sell it is $345.00 @ Sears. so he's trying to charge you around $1200.00 for labor, thats crazy, this guy doesnt want to do the job, it is a big job but not that big, average cost to repair this is around 600-650 dollars, call someone else and get a quote , dont let this guy back in your house. heres a link to the part, productGroupId=0026&supplierId=110&brandId=x&documentId=W0709012&keySuffixId=NA&modelNumber=x&keyId=0008&pageId=00005&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=MFW9800TQ0&subCompDesc=Tub%20and%20basket%20parts&brandDesc=MAYTAG&modelDesc=RESIDENTIAL-WASHER&blt=11 hope this helps, thanks Bryan
