    I have seen lots of posts around many websites regarding early life failures of bearings on these front load washers.

    I thought I would put a post here to a forum on the gardenweb.com site that has a thread going from a guy who is a specialist from a bearing company that took it upon himself to source and replace the bearings instead of buying a entire rear drumhole new drum.

    May not be of much interest for the pro appliance repair guys, but there are many homeowners that may want to tackle this job instead of scrapping the whole washer.

    check it out......
