The symptoms that you describe sound like the spider or support arms of your washer has failed. It the part that holds the wash drum true in the plastic tub. It's a rather difficult job to replace the spider since the washer has to be taken apart to get to the spider. Fortunately, LG does sell the spider, instead of making you buy a new spider and drum. You may need to also replace the plastic tub parts if they are too damaged to be reused. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace.

My LG M#WM2277HB wont turn the drum. It started making bearing failure type noises a couple loads ago. I just pulled it out , removed the top/back and started it. the motor rotates cw and ccw but the drum...


Oh s***! If the motor turns but the drum does not, the drive shaft has broken loose from the three arms which attach it to the drum. (the part is called the "spider") To repair, remove bolt on end of shaft at center of motor. You may have to cut it with an angle grinder, but don't worry about that, because the shaft has to be replaced anyway. Remove motor rotor and stator. Remove washer front, drain hose, fill hose, shock absorbers, support springs, all wires attached to outer drum, and eventually the entire outer drum. Remove bolts between front and back halves of outer tub to allow removal of inner drum. Remove 6 bolts holding 3 arms of spider to back of inner drum. Re-assemble with new spider and new bolt for end of shaft. If you can do it in under two hours, give yourself a big pat on the back. This is about a 8.5 on a 1 - 10 difficulty scale for washer repair. Good luck Mike.

It sounds like the spider arm supports in your washer has failed. The spider arms hold the stainless steel wash drum to the axle. You need to stop using the machine immediately since the wash drum is flopping around the plastic tub. It is an expensive fix. The replacement drum/spider can cost over $300 with shipping. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace. Sorry.

During the spin cycle there is a very loud knocking noise,


Could be the spider arms are broken. You can confirm this by turning the tub by hand, if you hear any kind of thumping sound as you turn the tub, then the spider is broken. The spider is the support arms that hold the wash tub to the drive shaft. It's very expensive to repair.

If there is no thumping sound when you turn the drum, it could be that one of the supports or spring is broken. Hope this helps.

Loud banging noise looks like the drum is off set and it damaged the rubber in the front


If the inner wash drum is sagging when it is empty, it probally means that the support arms that hold the drum has failed. If you turn the drum by hand and if you hear any kind of banging noise or the drum wobbles more that a fraction of an inch, then the support or spider arms are broken.

You can't buy the spider arms seperately and must buy a drum and spider as one unit. The cost to repair would be in the hundereds. See the following link to judge for yourself if you want to fix it yourself or have it fixed. http://www.fixya.com/support/t4267953-spiderarm

Front load washer loud noise and drum loose but not dropped


Spider arms attached to stainless steel drum inside of tub have probably broken. This is a known problem with Frigidaire front loading washing machines. The stainless steel drum has a 25 year warranty but this does not include the spider arms. You cannot buy the spider arms separately, you have to buy the unit as one. The drum cost about $250.00 and probably about $300.00 in labor to install. You can do it yourself but it is pretty involved. Good Luck!

you dont need to buy the shaft, "spider".it has a lifetime warranty on the inner tub and should be replaced by frig. what you need is the entire tub as the shaft is not available seperately. if you cant get this under warranty then i would suggest buying a new unit as the outertub and bearings are what is worn causing your noise in spin. you may have to pay a warranty dealer to get the tub covered, but the whole job is very labor intensive and most people cant do it, even if you are good with tools. call frigidaire and see if they will cover the repairs first.

Check the shocks on the bottom of the drum. I had the same problem and had to replace the shocks because they were broken in half.
