LG 2514W Rear Seal

Hi Rick: Follow-up questions:

1. Where can I get a rear seal for this unit?
2. I still cannot tell whether I would take the top off and the front off, then remove the drum from the front by bringing it towards me (in front of the unit) or do I remove the top, then the back panel? The service manual doesn't make this clear to me at all.
3. What type of adhesive would be best to use? Is it really just glued on?

I've used a company called MCMINONE online to order most components for LG products. Try them first.. If that fails to reap benefits.. I would call appliance repair shops in your area or search online for parts for LG products.. ( there are numerous hits if you do that) and get your parts that way.

You will need to remove the top and front to pull the drum out and that is done typically by removing three screws on the back of the cover.. to allow it to slide toward the back of the unit then you should be able to lift it off. You'll need to unscrew the filter housing and with the top cover removed you should be able to remove a few sheet metal screws to detach the front panel.. You'll also have to disconnect the door switch... and the drum belt.. ( here is where you may want a digital picture to use as reference when reinstalling it.. )

As for gasket cement, you can get some in a small container at an automotive parts store of the parts house you find to get your gasket should be able to provide that too..

I am in my day job now ( lunch break) and can assist you better from home later on if you need any additional information.. feel free to ask.. ( If I recall correctly, did you say you lived in western mass?) If thats true, I may know arepair man that would be willing to assist you.. but I would have to ask first.. Please advise on that one.. TTYL

Is it worth it to fix a 99 F250 SD that has a rear main seal blown on the engine?

Until the engine is sealed you will not know how much oil is burned. Price the parts. Difference too in whether its a 4x4 or easy access 2 wheel drive.

Check rear seal type to see if it can be changed by pulling trans and flywheel. If stick shift, probably good idea to replace clutch disc to verify not oil soaked. If automatic, oil is no consequence.

Kind of matters how much is wrong. With trans out, some rear engine seals can be replaced without removing oil pan. But if bearings are bad, on 2 wheel drive you may be able to squeeze off oil pan and check bottom of bearings.

You can do poor man's bearing job with plastic-gage. Rod bearings can probable be switched 100%. Main bearings lower cap can be serviced with upper 1/2 left in place. Not ideal, but can save from pulling motor.

Value depends on whether your Labor is free. You have a 14 Year ol truck. Depends on what you already replaced to maintain it or what else it will need. You could need rings after working on the bottom end even with a poor man's bearing job. Plastic Gage can tell you the size you need for each bearing. Then keep track and only buy individual sizes.

If you could find a wrecked truck with a good engine, places like have a good multilist. Rule of thumb is different for each person. I would look hard at spending 1/2 of what truck is worth to fix it, knowing other things are wrong.

LG 2514W Rear Seal

Hi kc,
You are on the right track, the dryer has many screws and sections to pull off including the top and front. I use a plastic scraper from Ace Hardware to remove old felt to prevent scraping enamel on drum. Note how the belt loops on the tensioner to the motor pulley.

Main seal

First is it a front seal ,or rear main seal,(front seal,being were you see the pulleys and fan belts,,you have to look at the bottom pulley,follow the shaft to the motor,where the shaft goes into the motor is the front seal,the pulley and everthing behind it has to come out then you pull out the seal,auto zone actually has free tool rental that you can pull the seal,and a tool to put it back in,if a rear main seal its where the shaft from the transmission meets the back of the motor,youll have to pull the trannsmission back,check where you see the oil leek from,the front seal you can do if mechanically inclined,but if its the rear you should take to a mechanic,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote
