My wife said that the washer was much louder during the final spin than normal. Also, said it sounded wrong during the wash cycles when it would spin. She described it as clunky or scrappy if that is of any use. I'll link a video to the final spin just as it is finishing. We have 3 kids and it is baseball/softball season and her main worry is it stopping working completely/or damaging to further by continued use. Please let me know if you can hear anything from the video that could indicate what is wrong. I can also post other videos of it spinning during different stages in the wash cycle as well if it would be helpful. Thanks

Yup, I heard it, that's your tub bearing making that noise.

There is a kit for this now that comes with complete instructions and a "HOW TO" video in both part links below:

Outer tub and drive shaft repair kit:
Tub Seal and Bearing Kit W10435302


You will also need the Bearing and seal tool:
Bearing Driver W10447783

Thanks, I thought that might be the case from reading some of the other threads. Nice to know for sure though. Just need to decide if I want to tackle it myself or not. Thanks
