This is fine
Expert:  Kelly replied 3 months ago.

The bearing is part of the tub and bearing assembly, part number 00245703, showing as unavailable. See link below. This is not something that will be able to be repaired. If you can find the part as old stock, it retails for around $800. I would replace the machine given the age....
