Hi I'll be glad to help you with this. If your getting a lound grinding noise while the unit is spinning, you are correct you will need a new tub bearing. Unfortunately on these models, the bearing is built into the tub, so to replace the bearing, you will have to relace the outer tub.(not extremely difficult to do, just takes time because you have to tear apart the whole machine)Here is a diagram and parts listing, the only thing you would need would be the outer tub, #11 on the diagram. Hope this info. helps you out, any other questions, feel free to ask.Josh
