Default Maytag neptune bad spin bearing check

Appliance Parts from

I had a customer complain her Maytag Neptune washer would cut out during high speed spin. I checked the basket for rough bearings, but couldn't tell. Apparently, the bearings hadn't reached the level of failure that causes a roar.
I put an amp probe on the main black input power wire to the motor control board and measured about 1 amp at low speed and over three amps near maximum speed and the motor started to overheat. This confirmed to me that the bearings where bad.
Later,I picked up the washer as junk, took it apart and confirmed bad tub bearings, so apparently my check was valid. Any comments, please.
