During spin, it has a grinding, rattling noise, which I think could be the tub bearings,  if so is it worth the time, effort, and money to replace ?

Broken spider hub put your hand up underneath the basket at the top , you should be able to shake it up and down and see the play. It's a major job

I agree with Harold , no . That being said I do change them here where I work because Im not having to charge labor to a residential customer . You can buy after market bearing kits with the seals included (some better than others ) instead of replacing the rear tub but as Harold mention sometimes its a broken spyder or a worn shaft then you get into the big money of replacing the basket . If you sell used appliances you can make money if it only needs bearings . That will give you something to do on those slow days .
