You can try a puller but typically it is recommended to replace the entire rear outer tub half (which comes with the bearings already pressed into it). You will also need the tub seal that goes between the front and rear tub halves. Hope this helps.

Help! changing drum bearing lg wm2277hw

The best way I can suggest through my own personal experience is to turn the tub upside down withthe spider shaft facing down. Hold the tub up in the air about a foot and drop the whole tub on to the ground letting the shaft hit the pavement. It may take a few times to do it but it has always worked forme.
Hope this helps.

I need to know how to remove the bearing from the drum. I have split the outer drum but can't get the shaft out of the back of the outer drum? My washing machine is a Hotpoint WT 960

this just takes a bit of mucle and time.

remove rear pulley and then refit screw (without washer) into shaft. screw the whole way in. then using a lump hammer knock shaft out. may take a good bit of hammerin.

knock bearing out then and also unclog the weep hole in bearing housing.

grease the bearing housing and press in new bearing and seal.

if old shaft damaged ( which prob is if hard to knock out) you will need to replace it.

screws holding shaft to drum usually impossible to undo so drill them out using a 8mm bullet bit.

fit new shaft, put some bearing grease on the bearing seal and re-assemble the drum

How do you change drum bearing on lg wm-1290fhb washing machine

It is a difficult job in terms of handling! You require spanners and bearing puller. You require one extra assistance to hold the drum and pull from the front.

You have to change the full set of Bearings with same type and design. Check the bearing housing and the shaft before fixing new ones! Replace the water seals if any

I need to replace the bearings on lg wm2277

The metal covering piece is probably the outer seal for the front bearing--you remove both by driving the bearing out with a long metal rod (or a long punch) that reaches all the way through from the back (you have removed the inner drum and end shaft first). Tap fairly gently on the rod with a hammer and move the bearing end to another location after a few taps. The seal should pop out first, with the bearing next. Once out, look for a number on the bearing edge--it should match the replacement. Inspect the surface where the seal mates with the shaft--it should be pit and wear free. If it is not, a local machine shop should be able to repair that surface (and cheaper than a new inner drum assembly). It is essential that this surface be perfect as it keeps water out of the bearing behind it. The seal can be reused if it still fits fairly tightly on the shaft and that it was not damaged during the removal process. Check with a local bearing supply house to get a replacement bearing. The new bearing will have been greased at the factory, but you need to grease the shaft and inner seal lip with waterproof grease before installing the seal. Don't strike the inner part of the new bearing, only along the outer edge when tapping it back into the housing. Same with the seal. The far end bearing will likely be good and not need to be replaced--slowly turn the inside part and feel for any roughness which would indicate the need for replacement. If so, it gets tapped out from the front side in a similar manner as the front removal. Good luck!!

I need kit bearing for wascator comercial washer machine part # w990217 asap

Not sure which machine the previous suggestor is referring to,
But the Wascator/Wascomat W73/74/75 that uses the 990217 Bearing Assy needs a BIT More than a Couple of large flat-head screwdrivers" to repair correctly.
You will need;
A large 2 jaw puller
2 suitably size bearing installers, 2 properly sized pipes may be used instead
A small sledge hammer or single jack
A full tube of a good quality, (not cheap!) Lithium Grease (I perfer the waterproof Marine type)
A normal supply of sockets and other tools

Lay the washer on it's face on top of two 2x4's or 4x4's
Use a Large Black Marker to mark the Rear Gable in relation to the outer tub in several places
Remove the Z-bracket and the motor cover bracket
Remove the Z-bracket at the 12 o'clock position
Remove the overflow hose completely
Dis-connect the inlet tube from the anti-siphon
Pull out the water level hose tube at the 6 o'clock position & route it out of the way
Remove to 2 outer gable clamps. Note their positions.
Pull the rear gable assy out and place it on two 4x4's to keep the drum off of the ground
It may take a small amount of persuading to get the gable to release from the outer drum
IF you use a small to medium screwdriver to separate it, ONLY do so at the 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock positions

Remove the Cir-clip
Pull off the large drive pulley
Remove the 6 bolts on the bearing housing
Place the 2 hooks of pulley puller under the 2 pull nubs on the bearing housing
Pull the housing off
The upper bearing may or may not come off at the same time
Clean off all the old grease
Pull off the upper bearing, or drive it out of the housing
Pry open the cir-clip and slide it up the shaft. Set aside for later if not included in the new kit.
Pull off the spacer. Set aside if not in new kit.
Loosely Re-attach bearing housing with the 6 bolts. Do not tighten down onto the bearing
Use the puller under the housing nubs as before, or under the housing rim, to pull off the rear gable and at the same time the front bearing.
Set aside the rear gable for later work

Clean the shaft and inspect the seal collar
If it is damaged you will need to have it removed.
I have a way but it is too involved to explain here.
A good machine shop of welder should be able to remove it.
Be sure to tell them it Non Ferrous Metal. It's usually Stainless Steel, but may also be Chromed Bronze/Brass. It Can Not be removed with a torch.
The new one will need to be heated to low temp , as with engine gears, to re-install.

Clean the inside of the bearing housing of any old grease
Set aside for later installation

Knock out the old seals
Clean the inside of the seal housing.
Don't forget the weep hole at about 6 o'clock
Install the new seals.
Spray lubricant around the inside of the opening
If you have a seal driver this is the proper tool. If not you can CAREFULLY driver it (open side toward the inside of the washer, or forward. Flat side toward the new bearing.) A 3/8" or 1/2" extension can be use if you tap around edge until it seats. Take you time. do it slowly.
Do the same with the second seal.
The third seal goes in different. The Opening goes toward the rear of the gable. Tap it only until flush. leave a space between to two forward ones and the rear one.
Put a generous amount of grease on each of the seals
Drop the rear gable onto the drum shaft, with a slight twisting motion
Install the front bearing using the proper sized installer/pipe, and the sledge. Over hit the bearing. It is moving when "ringing". It has hit the stop when it "Thuds"
Install the saper and cir-clip above the front bearing
Install the Rear bearing using the same method as the front but with the smaller installer tool/pipe
Use half the tube of grease to lube the bearings. Build a cone of grease on each eof the inside faces of the bearings.
Install the Bearing Housing.
Install all 6 bolts evenly, Then tighten them in a criss-cross pattern, until the housing seats.
Install the large pulley
Install the cir-clip
Re-install the drum into the outer tub, using the black reference mark
Install the rear gable clamps. tighten evenly.
Re-install all brackets and hoses.
It will be easier to install the 12 o'clock bracket if you install it "up-side-down" with the 10mm bolt accessible from below.

This is the basic repair procedure.

It takes more than a couple screwdriver, but can be accomplished by someone with somewhat better than average mechanical abilities

Bad bearings on front loading lg washer 1832cw

Sorry, but you are not so lucky. LG should not even offer those parts, as it takes special hydraulic presses to install some of that. For anyone but the manufacturer them self you must replace the back half of the outer drum (I believe it is a 3045ER0008C in your case) which contains the installed seal and bearing, plus I'd recommend replacing the spider asm 4434ER0002A, as the shaft may be a bit worn where it contacted the seal and bearing, and you don't really want to go through all that work (at least 2 hours) only to have to do it again. A FixYa rating would be appreciated. Thanks.

One of 2 things may be causing the loud noise.  Either the rear bearing on the drum has failed and will need to be replaced (very expensive) or the drain pump has a bearing problem and is making a very loud noise when it is draining (not too expensive).  Either way, you will need a qualified LG technician to diagnose and repair the problem.

Drum Bearing Replacement

With a plastic tub (outer drum as you describe it) removal of the old bearings can deform or bruise out the plastic housing a little - you will need to check that the new bearings will be really good fit. You may need to use a retaining compound if not, to ensure that the outer journals of the bearings don't creeping round in the plastic housing and wear it looser.
I did my Hoover Electron 800 bearings (metal tub). As i recall it was fairly straightforward - needed a gasket for the tub backplate on that.
Unbolted tub backplate from tub and withdrew it through rear of chassis along with drum/drum-shaft/bearings assembly, removed pulley, tapped shaft through bearings with softfaced mallet (or hammer & wood), drifted bearings out gently, working evenly around circumference.
For plastic tub some kind of suitable extractor may reduce chances of deforming bearing housing during bearing removal, compared to drifting them out. If it'd serve to ease the new ones in too then that'd be even better.
Don't forget to check/clean the water level pressure sensor path while you're at it - stave off any problems in that area for a while while you have the machine apart. ;o)
