My Maytag Washer is about 5 years old. 3.5 years in, I had the 'Sounds like a jet plane' issue where I needed the bearings kit. I had a tech replace them and now 1.5 years later, same issue. This leaves me with 2 choices:
--Replace the washer with an LG. I'm told LG is way better and doesn't have this issue
--Replace the bearings again maybe with better ones

Has anyone used Nachi bearings? I see they are from Japan and could be much better quality than what comes in the replacement kit. I am not sure of this though and I don't want to spend another $250 on this service unless I know this will laster longer. I'm not comfortable doing the job myself, so, I need to hire a tech.

I can't believe there isn't a class action lawsuit or recall about this. Tons of people have the bearings problem. Very sad for what was once the top of the line brand in appliances.
