I take it you have the drum removed from the machine completeley, the only thing holding them together should be a rubber gasket, Have you taken the weight from the front and removed all the screws behind the weight?
could you not move the screw to the bottom of the tub, remove the heater and then remove the screw, stripping down the whole machine is a lot of work, at least an hour and a half and a sore back into the bargin.

Washing machine drum seems to be jammed. Filter is clear. Drive belt seems to be intact OK and intact. Any suggestions?


sounds like something jammed between the inner and outer drum.
sometimes people get curtain hooks jammed in there. Obviously turn off the power before you start dismantling it. Sometimes you can get access via the drain plug opening with a long screwdriver or something.

LG WM2032 HW making noise, drum moves to much, belive the bearings are shot, but it also leaked the water out of the drum when is shut down. Can just the bearing going bad cause this are is there an...


You are probably correct. If the inner drum is loose and sloppy you probably have collapsed bearings and seals.
What can also happen is that the inner drum can make contact with the outer drum and wear through it. This could be the reason for the leak.
Unplug the machine at the wall. Remove the 2 screws under the rear of the top. 'Bump' the top to the rear to unclip it, and remove.
Remove the back panel to inspect the rear of the drum. This will expose the outer drum.
If the bearings and seals have failed, you have quite a large job ahead of you.
A holed tank is another level of expense. It may be cheaper to replace the machine...Get quotes.
Good luck....Nomess

The rear drum wont come off as i would expect


Yes, Undo the 32mm nut, first. And, don't get the bearings dirty with dust from the brake drums, or , if you do, replace the inner and outer bearings with new greased up ones.prev.gif next.gif REAR DRUM BRAKES Brake Drums REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Brake linings contain asbestos. Asbestos is a known cancer-causing agent. When working on brakes, remember that the dust which accumulates on the brake parts and/or in the drum contains asbestos. Always wear a protective face covering, such as a painter's mask, when working on the brakes. NEVER blow the dust from the brakes or drum.
  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. On vehicles without rear bearing hub, remove the dust cap, cotter pin, nut lock, wheel bearing nut and washer from the spindle. Remove the outer wheel bearing. Remove the drum with the inner wheel bearing from the spindle. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. Remove the grease seal.
  4. If equipped with a rear bearing hub, remove the drum by removing the retainer screws from the drum and pulling the drum from the hub assembly. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. To install:
  5. On vehicles equipped without rear bearing hub, lubricate and install the inner wheel bearing. Install a new grease seal. Install the drum to the spindle. Lubricate and install the outer wheel bearing, washer and nut. Adjust the bearing preload following the procedure outlined in the "Rear Wheel Bearing'' of this section. When the bearing preload is properly set, install the nut lock and a new cotter pin. Install the grease cap.
  6. On vehicles with rear bearing hub, install the brake drum to the hub assembly and install the retaining screws.
  7. Install the wheel and tire assembly. Adjust the rear brakes as required.
  8. Apply the brakes until a firm pedal is obtained, prior to moving the vehicle.

Washing machine will not drain. Check the drain filter and cleaned that. Made sure the Drain hose was not twisted or bent. What do I do???


Does the pump run when it is supposed to? If ok, check the drain hose where it is attached to the bottom of the outer drum. If there is water in the drum and you pull the hose loose at the drum, the water should run out of the hose fitting (into a bucket). If nothing or very little comes out, look for something inside the drum blocking the outlet (a stray sock or similar). If there is no removable plate nearby, then the machine must be dismantled to the point that the inner drum can be removed. Major job!

Replace drum bearing


To complete this repair correctly and to prevent problem re occuring within months you must change the inner drum spider at the same time as the bearing kit, otherwise you are wasting your time, to complete the repair if you have not done one before will take you aprox 1 to 3 hours depending on space available and practicle ability, here goes, remove lid and outer case from machine to do this remove bolts on lower back and two side bolts (under small white covers) remove bolts along top edges both sides on top of macnine, remove cabinet, remove motor, remove hoses, remove heater and thermostat wires, noting location for refitting, remove suspension leg pins and lift outer drum assembly complete fron lower frame, split two halves of outer drum by removing bolts around centre seem, split drum in two, remove drum pully, refit pully bolt and drift inner drum out having put nut back on drum spider thread to avoid flaring shaft, using hammer knock shaft through bearings, then using a chisel or similer object knock out bearings and seal, reverse process refitting new bearins and spider, make sure to replace centre outer drum seal, as these are prone tro leaking I suggest you also seal with a layer of clear silicon, and problems contact me again, not really a job for a novice. Good Luck you will need it. Regards Advisor
