Question about Washing Machines
Need to replace bearing in my washer LG wm0532hw.
SOURCE: replace bearing
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.

Good instructions from SteveSays. Used his instructions and service diagrams from:
LG CS Academy - Just select washer model for respective service manual (mine WM2032) http://22.214.171.124/contents/Laundry/WM2032.htm
Once disassembled, I found main problem was shaft on spider assembly had corroded and was now rotating freely. So I ordered spidershaft assembly. While I had machine apart, I also ordered and replaced both rear bearings and seal. Parts can be ordered from:
LG Service Website for LG Parts Distributors http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp
I ordered all parts from Andrews Electronics due to parts being in stock there. Good service and quick delivery.
Rear bearings can be pushed out using hammer and long punch. You must be careful not to damage bearing insert that bearings fit into. New bearings were driven back in using large socket to only push on outer race of new bearings. Care must be given not to damage. Best practice is to put new bearings in freezer for an hour or so prior to installation.

"OE" means that your drain pump is blocked, or possibly broken, and that water isn't emptying so that the machine can spin. (I think Outlet Error is what it stands for). If you have a wet dry vac, you can use it to vacuum out the water from the drain hose behind the small door on the lower left side of the machine. If not, you can try using a large pan to catch the water, but to be honest, it will take forever and won't really get all the water out. Try to borrow a wet vac if you don't have one.
Next you will have to open the pump trap (the cap thing next to the small drain hose). With the wet vac on and in position, loosen the trap and pull it out slowly (there will still probably be a bit of water in there). Hopefully you will find a bunch of junk in the trap like lint, coins, a sock, whatever... however you may find there isn't anything in the trap. which means we have to go in deeper.
You may just want to get a pro in to do this, but it isn't really all that difficult for the adventurous type. You have to remove the top of the machine (three screws at the back release it so that the top panel can slide back a couple inches and lift off,) pull out the dispenser drawer completely, the control panel (you don't have to disconnect the wires, just pull it away from the frame of the machine so that it reveals the screws that hold on the front panel) Then you have to remove the front panel, which includes pulling off the spring clamp that holds the gasket to the front panel, and the wire which activates the door lock. There is also a screw behind the plastic piece where the drain hose is.
Once you can get to the pump, unscrew the motor on the left side of the pump and remove whatever is blocking the pump impeller from turning... even a tiny nail can do it.
