After ~50 loads the bearings started to make noise, I did some web research, found that the bearings I'd installed that came with this repair kit are prone to early failure. I ended up taking the washing machine apart again and replacing the bearings with high quality industrial bearings. After the 50 loads, the bearings that came with this kit had notable axial play in the smaller bearing and the larger bearing was gritty.

What you get in the repair kit is
35mm ID, 80mm OD, 21mm wide bearing
30mm ID, 72mm OD, 19mm wide bearing
40mm ID, 80mm OD, 10mm wide double lip oil seal with garter spring

There are plenty of manufactures of good quality bearings. The specifications for the industrial bearings I used are good for about 50% more load than the bearings that came with this kit.

The shaft seal (more commonly called an oil seal) is a bit of a problem. It's a triple wiper, no spring seal. More research and talking to a mechanical engineer, I found that triple seals are used in farm equipment and/or muddy environments. The seal included in this kit is a double lip seal with garter spring, not exactly the same. I can't find an triple lip replacement anywhere.

One problem with the double lip seal is it rubs on a brass sleeve, and after the 50 loads, the seal had worn a small groove (maybe 0.010" deep) in the sleeve. The original seal ran for over 3000 loads and didn't groove the sleeve. I don't know if this is going to be a long term problem or not, it may make a groove, settle in and be happy.

If I were going to do it again, I'd start with the industrial bearings and a double lip oil seal without the garter spring. It's about the same price as this kit and significantly higher quality.

Don't forget to get the giant tub o-ring. this is a bigger job and you have to entirely disassemble the washer. I give the job a 4 out of 5 difficulty level. but if you do it correctly it will save a couple hundred bucks.

I pre-ordered the bearings when I heard my washer growling. I didn't realize how much of a pain this would be to do, but with some help to lift the drum from the springs I was able to get the drum out and separated and get the inner drum out and change the bearings. My machine is spinning much quieter now. The work was a pain but it would have cost me 300 to 500 dollars to get this done, I figure that is worth the trouble.

Frigidaire / Electr)lux / etc. insist on not selling the replacement parts, rather they force you to buy a replacement tub (bottom half) with the bearings already pressed into place.

This kit fixes what's broken and saves you about $200 (when you factor in the price of shipping the tub) and frankly it only takes a half hour to knock the old bearings out and press the new ones in. (You still have to pull the tub out which is the majority of the effort.)

Parts arrived quickly. The website is informative and when I had a question, he answered it the next day.

Awesome!
