Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me pl.....if helped.

You are right!
Bearings have to be replaced. Replace with the same type and design. All the bearings connected to the washer center shaft has to be replaced at the same time with new set.
Replace the water seals also connected to this. Check the shaft where the bearing sits, for any abrasions or metal damage.
Check the bearing housing also. While carrying out these repairs check the drive belt also. If needed replace it.
If you are happy with the machine outer body and other aspects repair it and re-use it.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the quick reply Ambari, that's exactly what I wanted to know. Atleast I'll some idea if the repair bloke is pulling a swifty. Cheers"
It could be that the springs have become lazy (stretched) and not supporting the spinning weight as good as they once did or as happened to me one of the shock absorbers at the base of the unit has come adrift from its securing point. Replacement parts are easily available but you will need someone strong to fit them with all that new tension.

I have the EXACT same problem wit the LG 8015C. After numerous attempts, I finally found the problem. A set of wires attached to the drum body vibrates against th erear panel, wears off the plastic insulation, shorts and blows the circuit board. All because of sloppy workmanship ! It took 4 years of easy work for this to occur. Will NEVER buy an LG or Front Loader again
