That sounds about right. If the bearing was already getting tired, any repositioning or change in tension could push it over the edge.

When the bearing fails, the seal will usually fail real soon. While some mechanics tend to make things up as they go, what you're hearing is actually reasonable.

It is possible the tech over tightened the PS belt and caused the pump to fail.or the unit was about to fail. If the shop is a place that you have used and trust I would go with the techs explanation of what happened

Why does detergent causes the surface tension of water to increase?

Actually, detergent causes the surface tension of water to decrease. Surface tension of water is caused by an intermolecular force called hydrogen bonding. The detergent interferes with the hydrogen bonding occurring between H2O molecules so, therefore, detergent decreases surface tension.
