Whirlpool Cabrio Washer bearing noise during spin
« on: December 22, 2012, 10:51:52 AM »

Have a relatively newer Cabrio and all of a sudden it is making a very loud sound during spinning.  Repairman says $500 to fix bearings.  I just replaced my dryer two weeks ago and don't want to buy a new washer this month too.  Any suggestions?  I'm fairly handy, so if you know how to repair it, how long will it take?

Did you replace the bearings?  Did it work?  We have a Cabrio that is only 4 yrs old and it may have the same issue.  Trying to decide if it's worth fixing, if it will last.  The part for ours is more.
