You have to disassemble the entire washer to get to the bearing. It is the first thing to go into the washer, and the last thing to come out. The springs have to be removed that hold the tub down, the brake needs to be removed with a brake tool as it is under 200 lbs of pressure, so it would be better to have a professional do this job. Everything has to be done correctly or it will leak and the problem will be worse than before.

How do I remove the bearing from the rearof the drum on a front load lg washer it is a modle WM2032HS and I have it all the way apart except the bearing looks like it is pressed in but im not sure


This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer, which you have witnessed. The manufacturer recommends that if possible the complete outer tub and bearing be replaced rather than attempting to replace just the bearing in the tub. If the bearing is bad the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

I have a LG front loader WD-1049C it's 6 yrs old And has just started to make a loud noise while in spin cycle All other cycles are fine


If the washer is making a loud noise the tub bearing might need to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer.

Our Crosley washing machine (Model # CW5000W) will not spin all the water out of the clothes and is making a bad noise while it spins.


Three possibilities here,

One, you've overloaded the washer with clothes, throwing the washer basket on tilt because of the extra weight and force against the agitator. Remove the wet clothes from the washer and try continuing the cycle.

Two, One of the elastic/spring arms that centers the basket inside the washer housing has broken and is allowing the basket to simply flop around. Disassemble the washer and inspect the basket supports.

Three, The center post that the washer basket sits on is going bad - The most common reason is that the bearings have gone bad. Disassemble the washer and replace the bearings at the base of the basket where it connects to the motor.

Rear bearing is going out (very loud on spin). Tech said it would be $900.00 to replace. Is it that hard to replace a rear bearing? Does the whole machine have to be disassembled, etc. About how much is...


rear bearing is generally included with the rear outer drum ***'y. seals and bearings are already pressed into it. it will require much disassembly of machine. hopefully, the motor rotor/stator/drum spider shaft is not damaged too.

Our washer sounds like an airplane during the spin cycle. We have tried to balance it at least 5 times. Any solutions?


It sounds like your drum bearings are going bad. Open the door and gently lift the drum taking the weight off of it. Is there play or a clunking sound? Depending on your skill level I may be able to walk you thru it, but you pretty much have to disassemble the whole machine and the parts are about $70 ( 2 bearings and a seal). Frigidare only sells the drum assembly which is around $250-300. Let me know what you find.

Replace drum bearings on hotpoint aquarius wf000g


You really don't want to know how but here it is. The bearing is located in the rear shell and is not removable the rear shell has to be replaced which means removing the tub assembly from the machine and completely disassembling. With 30 years of appliance repair the last one I did took about 3 hours.

Whirlpool Duet WFW9200SQ02 - high speed spin extremely loud!


I have the exact same washer, its also 2 years old, and this last week my bearings went bad too. I actually pulled my washer apart and replaced the stock el cheapo bearings with some better quality ones by Toyo. No, theyre not titanium, I'm a mechanic and I've never even seen titanium sealed bearings before. Not doubting they exist, but I highly doubt youll find them in any residential appliances regardless of make. Upon disassembly, I found what I believe is the issue with the seal, hair. Hair works its way to the drive shaft, slowly works its way into the seal, and then acts as a conduit for the water to enter the bearing cavity. Both sealed bearings eventually have thier grease forced out by water, and fail. This repair is time consuming, but it can save you a LOT of money. Whirlpool only sells a whole new rear tub, at a cost of $408 just for the part. I took it apart and found that the bearings are simply pressed into the steel hub on the rear tub half. I knocked them out, and a local bearings and drives shop had some replacements for me, for $20. I put it all back together, and its running fine. If you attempt this repair, make notes, and mark where everthing goes. You'll need to disassemble a substantial amount of the machine to get the tub assembly out. If youre not able to do the repairs yourself, I recommend buying a new washer, its just not worth spending $6-700 to have a shop do it.
