Rust and leak streaks are signs of end-term bearing failure; the absense of these is not a conclusive indication that the bearing is unimpaired. 

Remove the belt from the drum pulley and spin the drum by hand.  If you hear noise, that's the bearing.  There's a less expensive bearing kit available here
