Install front seal on LG WC - 1018 WD - 1049c washing machine

I have removed the seal, front & rear spring cables... How do I get them back in? Do I need to take the front off the machine or should I lie the machine on it's back? Please help? Thanking you all for your help in advance, Jaynee jayjaynee@hotmail.com

i am recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, the rear door seal clamp is generally nowadays a large thin spring that is slightly hidden by the concrete weights at the front of the drum, if thats the case the door seal will just come off with a good firm pull round the drum edge, fitting as a reverse of removal, place the door seal in the groove so it fits like it should, then stretch the spring and fit that into the outer groove round the lip of the door seal at the drum end, once that is done fit the seal on the front panel lip, then replace that clamp, check all is fitted securely before running machine its one of those jobs that hard to explain how to do it, hope i have helped a bit, its easier to work through the front door opening than from above? if i have please rate me thank you

SOURCE: Problem with LG WD-8023FB washing machine

Hello sir,

  1. If a washing machine is rumbling, and very **isy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  2. A**ther drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is **t always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.
  3. Loud **ises when turning the drum by hand can also be caused if the drum itself splits, or the spider at the back of the drum has come away from the drum, is corroded or even broken. This would **rmally be a loud **ise on each revolution of the drum whereas the **ise when drum bearings have gone is constant all the time the drum is turning. Lifting the drum checking for excessive play can often reveal a broken or loose drum spider which sometimes only occurs at certain points round the drum (the spider has three arms and is bolted to the drum at three points)
  4. Coins or other obstructions trapped inside the tub under the drum can make horrendous **ises as they get tossed about on spin. They often don't make the **ise unless laundry is in though. Look out for obvious dints and creases in the drum itself as evidence of a coin or similar stuck inside although be aware that it only shows there's been an obstruction in at some point and the coin could have fallen into the sump hose or filter and **t actually be the cause of the **ise at this time
  5. Other causes of a **isy washing machine are coins and other obstructions inside the water pump. This will cause **ise when the washing machine is emptying the water. Coins or other obstructions can get trapped between the outer tub and the inner drum. This would produce a lot of **ise on spin as the coins get tossed around inside. Often, spinning the drum by hand will **t reproduce the **ise in the case of coins because the coins drop to the bottom of the tub and lay flat when the washing machine isn't spinning
  6. A light scraping or ratchity **ise when the drum is turned by hand is commonly a bra wire trapped between the tub and drum. They can often be removed from underneath with the sump hose taken off. It's always worth checking that the wire isn't poking through one of the holes in the drum which can be pulled back out from inside the door. It's rare, but I've retrieved 3 or 4 this way over the years.
  7. A high pitched squealing or harsh **ise can be motor bearing wear. This can also be checked for by taking the belt off and running the motor alone.
  8. A k**cking **ise can be a loose tub weight. This would **rmally be worse with heavy loads and would **t be present on spin with ** washing in. This is because the k**cking **ise is caused when the tub (or outer drum) shakes about on spin. Without washing inside the drum the tub doesn't move. A**ther symptom of a loose tub weight is grey concrete dust under the washing machine. Warning: These days most washing machines have plastic tubs and over tightening a tub weight bolt can easily shear the bracket resulting in a new tub being required. Try loctite. Often, once a tub weight has come loose the plastic tub is damaged anyway especially if it isn't caught early e**ugh
  9. Sometimes a badly worn drive belt can cause a surprising amount of **ise. I've even come across some where i was convinced the drum bearings were gone until I took off the belt and spun the drum by hand to find ** **ise.

Not a hard task if you coat rims with liquid detergent before trying to install new seal.
Using thumb go slowly around rim working seal all the way back.
Replacing main spring can be done by working bottom to top and then hold left side of spring in place while you pull right side in with long nose pliers.A couple of minutes difficult work and your 90% done.
Care is required so as not to puncture seal,
Main point is to ensure seal is fully seated before applying spring.
Having machine laid on its back makes the job so much easier.

This job took an hour and 30 minutes, the hour spent checking the internet first.
Good luck
Kevin

HOW DO i REPLACE THE LARGER RUBBER SEAL ON A lg INTELLOWASHER 7KG WD 8013f . The seal is mildewed


I have this problem and have been told the following.
You have to take 2 Cir clips off. one on the front which is achievable by opening up the spring that holds it in place. The second one is behind the front panel.

You need to take the top off first. Undo two screws on the back top. Then you can take the top off. Then take any detergent tray our and also the front control panel. Then you gain access to some screws which hold the front panel onto the chassis.

After you take the front panel off you can apparently access the rear cir clip and spring.

once this is removed you can remove the front seal for replacement.

:)

Lg WD8013f frnt load washer seal broken


The inner spring cable is a tough part to put back on without a special tool.  You're best bet is to remove the front cover of the washer to try and reinstall the seal.  If it doesn't work, you will need to call a qualified LG technician to help you.
