Hi guys,
I have a GE WCVH6800J2WW front load washer that has symptoms of needing a new tub bearing. It shakes violently on spin, about like a train running through your yard. The basket has always felt loose inside the tub. The loud shakes are new though it has always been a bit loud.

The exploded parts diagram doesn’t show a bearing kit and it looks like GE wants me to replace the entire rear tub with the bearings already pressed in. Can anyone confirm this crazy talk? That’s half the cost of the machine new and certainly exceeds it’s entire depreciated value.

Have you guys run into GE rear tubs where the bearings are molded in and cannot be pressed out and in?
