Question about Washing Machines
The washing machine is a front loader. It is an LG, it seems as if the barrel has broken off its supports it still rotates but flops around and mackes alot of crashing sounds.
My inner drum was bouncing around too. I removed the inner drum (there is some work involved) and found a broken spider. The shaft installed on the spider had come loose. I replaced the spider assembly, the bearings and seal. works better than it has in a long time. The parts cost $175.00 at repair clinic.com (great experience with them). It seems it may be easier to replace the entire outer rear drum instead of the bearings alone because the bearings are really tough to remove and reset without the right tools and it is really easy to damage something if you beat them out and back it. The outer rear drum assembly comes with the new bearings in place and hoses and the rear shock absorber installed. It's a great deal at $145.00 from repair clinic. I opted to replace just the bearings to save a little money and dis-assembly but can't say it was worth it. I'm a first timer with appliance repair and learned a lot with this experience.

It sounds liek a shock/support is broke. Remove the lower front panel after you UNPLUG the washer and you might be able to see what is wrong.
Hope this helps.
