I replaced the tub seal and the outer hub bearing. I just returned from one of our local appliance parts stores to get the bearing that fits just above the pulley. The service tech told me pretty much the same thing you have said. The most likely cause of the noise is the bearing located right above the brake. He gave me the bearing and the special wrench to remove the brake. Well, I have been whacking on it for 20 minutes and it won't move. (yes, I did take the retaining bracket off). He told me the thread is reversed so I need to turn it clockwise. So, are you telling me that I have to remove the tub before it will come loose? (he showed me a cutaway view of the brake and where the bearing is located)
