Whirlpool Cabrio oil splatter and belt broken melted into plastic guard.
My washing machine was making a loud dry bearing sound on the spin cycle but then it stopped working. I tilted the machine over to look underneith and there was oil spatter everywhere and the belt was broke and burnded through the belt shield on one side. I know it has to be a bearing but my question is, how do you take it apart? I removed the top of the washer and removed the tub ring, impeller but how do you remove the basket assembly? Do i need some kind of a puller?

Yes, sounds like you have two issues, the tub bearing and the gearcase.

WHIRLPOOL W10324649 Gearcase, AP4560983 | AppliancePartsPros.com
You would have to go by the repair manual to replace these parts.
Here's the repair manuals for the Cabrio's models.

You can look over the manual for your model and see if its something you can do yourself, its a big job, but if you've done other repairs like this for other things, then you can most likely do it yourself.
