Well...just what I need. Our Whirlpool duet washing machine has bit the dust. I believe the inner bearing has gone south. I have read where it is totally encapsulated in plastic and is basically unserviceable. SO its either buy a complete drum or replace the unit. It has served us well with about 10 yrs of service...although I got closer to 20 yrs on my topload. I am gonna tear it down this week to double check that the bearings cant be replaced. I'm sure I can get bearings through Motion Bearings if they can be. What would be a good one top go too? Preferably one that can be repaired without having to replace a full tub if this was to happen again? Any ideas?
