SOURCE: LG washer wm1832c

I had the same error code along with the drum "freezing" up. The first unit that was delivered 2 years ago leaked water from the detergent compartment and they sent a second unit. I have only had this unit for 2 years and I am very disappointed in the LG product. LG was no help on the phone and I the only people that could service it were 45min away from were I live. I took the advice of a posting on this website that it could be a part called the sensor assembly (#6501KW2002A) and ordered it from an online electronics store ( To get to the sensor assembly, you first unplug and take off the back plate that has 4 small screws. Next, unscrew the big bolt in the middle and take off the hubcap looking part the bolt was securing. Next unclip the two sets of wires on the bottom of the circle you are looking at (the set of wires to the right are connected to the sensor assembly you want to replace). Next you will unscrew the 6 or so smaller bolts to take off the circular piece that the sensor assembly is snapped to. Take it off, unclip the old sensor assembly and clip on the new one – and reassemble. This worked perfectly for me and the part only cost $18 bucks plus shipping. When working, this product works well but I will not be purchasing any LG products in the future.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

SOURCE: lg bearing problem

Don't order any spares until you've stripped it down. See below:

  • Make some space, unplug, unplumb, drain, remove top and rear panel.
  • Remove bolt holding rotor onto splined shaft.
  • Push down on top of tub to make the rotor more accessible then pull it off the shaft. Be aware that hefty magnets in rotor tend to pull it back on. Beware - strong magnetic fields!
  • Disconnect cables running to stator (that rather impressive ring of coils) and remove the six bolts which attach it to the tub.
  • Do NOTremove the 23 bolts which go through the steel plate at back of tub into polypropylene tub itself. I did - nothing happens!
  • Disconnect cables running to heater element and thermocouple (temp sensor) at bottom of tub. Remove second nut and ease out element.
  • Remove sprung wire which holds the rubber bellows to the front of the machine (the "port hole"). Leave it attached to the tub but fold the rubber into the drum so it's out of the way.
  • Disconnect rubber tube connecting the tub to the pump. I found it easier to remove it at the pump side
  • Disconnect pipes connecting the soap dispenser drawer to the tub. This is easiest at the tub side.
  • There is a long tube, about 1cm diameter running from an air chamber near the bottom of the tub to a pressure sensor (to monitor water level) mounted at the front top right. Disconnect from the pressure sensor.
  • Remove the scew holding said pressure sensor - it will be in the way when you remove tub.
  • Pull out the drawer and remove the two screws holding the soap dispenser. That will be in the way too! Leave hoses connected.
  • Also unscrew the solenoid valves. That's the last thing in your way.
  • Pop out the nylon gizmos which hold the suspension springs where they attach to the cabinet.
  • Note that there are two dampers at the bottom of the machine. They separate into two parts - no need to detach anything.
  • Unless you own a block and tackle it is very difficult to lift the tub vertically out of the cabinet. I layed the machine its right side (looking at the front). Get help, tilt gently and rest on something to protect cabinet paintwork. Remember to leave the door open and to keep the pressure sensor, soap tray, solenoid valves and miscellaneous plumbing cabling and fingers clear as you ease the drum out of the cabinet.
  • Remove bolts, split tub and remove drum.
  • I found the seal was obviously gone and the first bearing was wrecked.
  • Both bearings and the seal are available but I couldn't get the failed ones out (perhaps if I had specialist tools) so I ordered a rear drum including bearings and seal (about £120).
  • Reassembly is straightforward - just note the following:
  • If you replace the rear drum, rescue and reuse (or order a new) seal (huge O ring) between the two halves of the tub. Also rescue and reuse thermocouple.
  • When reinstalling tub ensure the dampers re-engage.
  • Beware when reinstalling heating element that it doesn't foul the drum. Also ensure no stray screws etc were attracted by those magnets. Give the drum a spin by hand to test once everything is reassembled but before switching on.
Two days doing it blind without instructions! More like two hours if I had to do it again.

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. 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

How do i change the tub bearing on a LG front load washer?

Unless you are a skilled DIY person, I do not recommend that you try to replace this tub bearing on the washer yourself. One has to virtually strip the entire machine to remove the tub to accomplish this bearing replacement.
If you are skilled, then please supply the model number of your machine.

Bearing noise in a lg washer

Check your owners manual, some models warranty the rear tub that houses the bearing and the inner spin basket. If not the rear outer tub and the gasket between both tubs will have to be replaced the correct the problem. If out of warranty it may not be cost effective to repair.

Washer won't turn on

Lets see here I read that you have three separate problems. Uhhhh
1) Ball Bearings
2) Hard reset
3) Going on
4) Serial number
Now I'm going to give you a method to start with, complete, then move to next issue.
FIRST!!!!! Get you owners manual and turn to the LG page for Customer Support. Now, if you sent your Registration card then They will have the serial Number. Other places back of machine, Tub opening inside/behind door.Now "If" you're having ALL these problems there is a chance here that you need a NEWER/NEW one under warranty to be replacing the machine you have.
Turning the Machine Off/On by pulling the Plug (ALL THE TIME!!!) Is a symptom of the Computer Board (Brains) has a fault (broken) and needs to be replaced. These are VERY expensive $300-$700 depending on model, yr bought, And if this is the issue and you have no warranty left. Buy another LG ERRRRR! Stop! Stop!
When Mine went after 8.5 yrs I had the same problem as you. I bought a "Used" Whirlpool (Commercial Grade) for $150. I have had THAT machine for 16 yrs! No problems AT All. So look at Top Loaders Whirlpool (Duh!), Maytag, or Samsung.
To "Reset" your machine you disconnect from power for 30 minutes then plug in/
Ball bearing are Not on these machines, they use a thing called a Stader. Which is a MAJOR replacement issue. Finally...Who told you that you had these problems?
Hope it works for you, please let us Know! We are here to assist you!

LG Front Load WM1815cs Makes loud noise when spinning. Inner tub is loose and seems to bounce making loud noise. Is this more than a bearing problem?

The outer tub and the bearing will need replacing as by replacing only the bearing will be a short lived repair as it will go the same way.
