Machine began to make a continuous, dry humming noise in the spin cycle. With in a week the tub was siezed and would not spin anymore.
Removed the top by using a wood wedge in each front corner, then removed the two top screws to remove the front panel. Removed the back panel, hoses and belts. Disconnected the balancing springs and removed the tub and transmission as one unit. Then I disconnected the agitator, removed the plastic and metal nuts to remove the tub. Then I replaced the upper tub bearing. Then I disconnected the pulley and brake assembly to get to the lower bearing and replaced it. I reversed the steps to re-assemble.
