Question about LG Washing Machines
If tub is banging around it could be dampers, but if it's a scrapping sound then something is caught in the inner tub and at hi speed it touches the outer tub.

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"
there are shocks inside the machine that damper the vibration, one or more has failed, they can be replaced if you are a good do it your self er, if u have to pay to fix it replace not worth the cost of repair. the repair requires taking off all the panels to access the inside. and check cost of dampers and compare to cost versus replacement

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.
