Whirlpool Washer Making Noise

Whirlpool clothes washer
Model: GHW9150PW0

Here is a site with parts diagrams.

The washer has been slowly making more and more noise when the drum turns. The machine is working fine but it sounds like a bearing is going bad. I've looked at the parts diagram and I'm not seeing any individual bearings. Could the drum bearing be part of the "drum outer" or should I be looking elsewhere for what might have bearings going bad?

I was fairly certain that the outer tube assembly (W10772617) gets replaced as the bearings weren't available separately. Now I'm seeing the bearings and seal kit available separately.

Need to see what Pugsi says.

W10253864 kit

Sears parts direct

First check your owners manual, tub and bearings were warranted up to 10 years until about 7, 8 years ago. Basket was a lifetime then. Later then this all parts were 1 year. Whirlpool repair is to replace tub which has the bearings in it. After market make several different kits to replace bearings. I was a factory repairman so we always replaced tub assy. Most times the basket will have to be replaced also as the bearings when they ware will cut a groove in shaft that is not repairable.

Thank you for the reply. I will have to check exactly when we purchased the machine but I think we will be outside the 10 year warranty period.

I've watched some videos about replacing the bearings on similar machines. I don't think I will go to that much work for a machine so old.
