Question about Washing Machines
I have owned above for 4 years. The machine started grumbling loudly a couple of weeks ago. Since yesterday teh drum will not spin. No error code comes up, just flashing flat lines with associated beeps. I presume roller bearings/motor needs replacement. IS it financially feasible to repair or does it need replacement
Open the back and see what is working or not working. could be a bad belt

SOURCE: Drum Bearing Replacement
With a plastic tub (outer drum as you describe it) removal of the old bearings can deform or bruise out the plastic housing a little - you will need to check that the new bearings will be really good fit. You may need to use a retaining compound if not, to ensure that the outer journals of the bearings don't creeping round in the plastic housing and wear it looser.
I did my Hoover Electron 800 bearings (metal tub). As i recall it was fairly straightforward - needed a gasket for the tub backplate on that.
Unbolted tub backplate from tub and withdrew it through rear of chassis along with drum/drum-shaft/bearings assembly, removed pulley, tapped shaft through bearings with softfaced mallet (or hammer & wood), drifted bearings out gently, working evenly around circumference.
For plastic tub some kind of suitable extractor may reduce chances of deforming bearing housing during bearing removal, compared to drifting them out. If it'd serve to ease the new ones in too then that'd be even better.
Don't forget to check/clean the water level pressure sensor path while you're at it - stave off any problems in that area for a while while you have the machine apart. ;o)

SOURCE: Clanking noise during spin cycle
I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.
Sears knows it and will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer since it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings.

You will need to remove the back cover plate of the machine and locate the large pulley at the end of the drum. Remove the belt, then the pulley and you should see a bearing housing. Some models require a bearing and housing replacement, while others can simply be repaired with a bearing replacement alone.
Go here, and find the nearest Dealer for your part.
Or you can try ordering direct from LG. If you are as handy with tools as you say, this should be a fairly easy job.
