Excessive noise during spin cycle
Be sure to read other instructions posted on this site, and watch the LG washer teardown videos on YouTube. DO NOT attempt to repair unless you have genuine LG (OEM) parts, such as those sold by this site. The most difficult step is removing the spider from the rear case; I had to use a 4lb sledge hammer to hit the spider shaft; use a strip of softer metal, such as 1/8" aluminum, to protect the shaft. Once the spider is removed, the bearings can be tapped-out of the rear case. My spider was worn because the bearing seized and needed replacement. Also, the bolts connecting the spider to the drum were severely corroded, so the drum also needed replacement.

loud noise during spin only
Disassembly time was about four hours, repair time about thirty minutes, and reassembly around two hours.I had really cramped quarters in which to work. I could either push the machine forward and work on the back or push it back and work on the front.I looked up bearing repair on You Tube then played it on a tablet one part at a time for disassembly. Once I got to the stator cover bolt, I removed it and the stator cover. I left the stator in place but was careful not to damage any of the coils. Taking the spider off was the biggest challenge. The video I was watching didn't mention that the screws had thread-lock on them and it felt like the threads would strip. After additional research, I used the penetrant and let it sit for about a half hour. Everything proceeded from there without incident. I followed the video recommendation to use dishwashing liquid to coat the bearings for installation. Reassembly was straightforward. There were two items that gave me the most trouble. The first was removal and installation the tub. Here it helps to have another set of hands. The second was installation of the tub seal clamp, but I didn't have locking pliers. In closing, one thing does not identify itself well on the illustrated parts drawings that are available--the large tub seal. I called LG tech support to verify it was correct before submitting my parts order.

Changing your LG washing machines bearings

YouTube video made it easier. It was a different model but it still worked. First when you take your Machine apart put all the Screws and bolts back in the holes where you can, so you can find them later. This is a big job. If you're not mechanically inclined don't try it.

Nevertheless, it was a lot easier than I thought. Use a camera/phone for pictures of the wiring. The hardest part of the job was getting the old bearings out. Do it like they show you on YouTube, Use a socket with an extension and a good mallet to the pound out the old bearings, the Gasket came out easy. Put your new bearings in place and gasket and your just about home free.

Reassembling the wash machine went fast. I don’t know what else to say I’m an older retired man with back problems and I did it. Just use common sense and you'll be fine. YouTube said it was a 5 hour job it took me about 10 hours, 8 hours taking it apart thanks to those darn stuck bearings. Less than two putting it back together.

The next time I'll do it in 5 hours or less. Lol

Hay what do you have to lose? It would cost more for a repairman or buying a new machine. Worst case scenario is make it easier to carry out the machine.

Oh by the way, I did this in 2 different sessions. Started before the bearings arrived and finished when they arrived.

Good luck

Noisy bearings
First, I ordered both bearings, shaft and tub seals but I got it apart and the back tub had bulges and cracks around the bearing pocket. I then ordered the back tub half and it came with the bearings, shaft seal and the 3 accordion hoses installed. I wish I would have ordered the tub half the first time around. I recommend NOT to bother with just the bearings and shaft seal. Craig.

Washer vibrating during spin cycle
Replaced the tub bearings, seal and the 3 shocks. The most difficult part was the removal of the axle. I suggest you spray the axle with WD-40 and leave this at least 1 day. Clean the Tub and outer part with a high pressure spray (if available). Once completed the washer is performing as a brand new washer. The parts were delivered on-time and prices were reasonable. I highly recommend this supplier.
