How do balls break?


Recommended Posts

In a previous OT thread --> How to change the main bearing [in a frontloader washing machine] I had the delight of consuming precious tool time on non LR equipment

Upon dissassembly - of the balls I could find - most of them looked like this....


I've seen "out of round" balls before but not split ones - is this a common failure mode?

is it related to how they are made?



ps the frontloader is back together with 2 nice shiny new bearings - and all good with SWMBO.
