My Amana top load washer is VERY loud during spinning. It sounds like a Boeing airplane taking off. With these washers, do I have to replace the whole transmission if the bearings went out? There’s no way to replace only the bearings, right? TIA

Yes, the entire transmission(gearcase) needs to be replaced to fix it. They don't make just the bearings separate that you could purchase.

Here's the transmission(gearcase) for your model you can order:

Your Amana washer is made by Whirlpool.

This video shows you how to replace it:

I replaced the transmission (gearcase) and it worked like a charm. Runs and spins like new again! Thank you Jake.
