Question and Answers

Q:

Vibration in front loading washer

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

That is correct, if the bearing is worn out, the rear half of the tub must be replaced. Also, the basket itself could have a broken support on the back of the basket causing the basket to be loose.

It is a major procedure to remove the tub assembly and the basket can be difficult to get the basket out too. I strongly suggest calling service to have your washer repaired. 
 
The service manual states the dryer section has to be removed in order to lift the tub assembly up and out from the top of the washer but you may be able to remove the tub from the back of the washer. It looks like a major job to remove the dryer and if you do, I strongly suggest trying to remove the tub assembly from the back of the washer. I added two images below with the basic procedure of removing the tub and basket assembly. The rear tub shell with bearing is part#131525500 at the cost of $183.39 which can be ordered from Searspartsdirect.com 
 
If I were you, I would call and have a service technician remove and replace the rear shell.
 
If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link:Sears Home Services.
 
Whatever you decide, do not tear the washer and dryer apart and then call and expect a service technician to put it all back together. He will not do this. He would want to tear it apart and put it back together and try to re-assemble it after it has already been taken all apart.
 
I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Bill; I would not be able to provide an estimated time of delivery of the spin basket. Bill, check your warranty, the spin basket has a limited 2-25 year warranty but in order to get it under warrannty, a technician would have to order and install the part.
