Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I would like to try to help you. I am an expert from Germany and work with language translators. I hope that you will understand me. The telephone service is provided automatically by the system. Please ignore it. I CAN'T USE THE PHONE.

Please check if the tub is screwed. Please open the top cover and check on the tub if it is just plugged and glued together or screwed together. The tub here is two parts. You will see once in the middle that it is glued or screwed together. If it is screwed together you can change the bearing. The repair with a technician would cost between 150-200 €.
