Hello schnauzer24.  Welcome to the Community!

 

I am going to have to make some assumptions in answering your question.

First, most of the Bravos washers use a direct drive motor attached to the bottom of the outer tub.

Some however, are belt drive models which use completely different construction.

 

The main bearing in the direct drive model is located on the shaft that runs from the drive rotor through the outer tub and to a gear that drives the inner tub.  This shaft must be removed to replace the bearing, and to do that you will have to remove the rotor.  Here are pictures of what I am talking about.

These views are what you will see when you tip the washer over so it sets with the front panel on the floor.  Use a blanket to protect the finish.  I highly recommend that you purchase the service manual specific to the exact model number of your washer if you want to do these types of repairs.

 

Is this what you are looking for?

 

Chris.
