GE Washer-wobbly agitator


Lately our clothing is coming out of the washer/dryer with small holes in them. I noticed the agitator seems to have a lot of movement in it so I pulled it apart and found that the spindle which the agitator attaches to has a lot of up and down and side to side play in it. It looks like it sits within a sealed bearing. Is the spindle or bearing something that is possible and cost effective to replace on a ten year old washer? Is this even the likely culprit? It seems like it would be pretty easy for clothing to get pinched under the base of the agitator with the movement it has...

Need the model number.
Not likely to be a cost effective fix, the whole thing needs to come apart.

This is the model WCSR2080B2WW. I pulled up a parts diagram and the spindle is actually the transmission which is around $200 and not worth the investment in this washer imo. However there is a part listed as the tub bearing for only $16 along with a couple other washers and a seal. Has anyone ever dealt with a wobbly agitator and resolved it by replacing the tub bearing or any other part for that matter. Or am I even on the right track making the assumption that this is putting holes in our clothes?
