I have a cabrio washer and its making a horrible roaring noise when it spins, is it worth fixing?
The loud roaring noise you are hearing when your cabrio washer is spinning is the tub / spin bearing. To fix it the bearing has to be replaced. If you want to repair it yourself you will have to buy the bearing driver tool and also the tub seal bearing kit. The parts and tools will run around you around 150.00.

If you need repair instructions you can see this troubleshooting guide for in depth troubleshooting for the Kenmore Oasis Washer F51 Error.
