My repair started by reading the reviews on that helped me to understand my problem and then described how I can fix it myself. My washer was making a loud noise and leaking water right above the transmition. So I figured a bad bearing was causing the noise and the failing tub seal caused the leaking water. This was fourth time taking the washer apart since I have replaced the motor, tub hub, and agitator cone over the years. So I was familiar with the dismantling process which made the job alittle quicker. This job was the most extensive diamantling yet because the outer tub had to be removed and turned over to remove the motor and trans assembly to access the tub seal. What was really helpful was the instructions I found behind the control panel explained step by step on how to remove the parts. Reassembled and started washer, was still alittle noisy because some rust had formed on the trans parts from the water leak on it, but after a few cycles that wore off and now it is like normal again.
