Unfortunately the main bearing and seal can not be replaced separately on this model. It only comes with the gearbox assembly which is part number W11035204 and costs about $165 at Searspartsdirect.com. Now if you needed a technician to replace the part for you, it would cost another $150-175 for trip and labor in addition to the cost of the part. Below is a video on how to replace the gear box if you wanted to do it yourself. Whirlpool owns Maytag now so don't be confused by the video saying it's for Whirlpool---the washers are built the same as yours.
