Question about LG WM2077CW Laundry XL Front Load Stackable Washer

LG/ westinghouse lifestyle font loader

Recently I fixed a leak fron between the main drum and drum front on my washing machine the oring seal was not adaquite after 10 years and a bead of silicon fixed this. After assembily the drum spun smoothly and seamed fine however after i had put the drum in the case and completed the reassembily the drum makes a loud noise when rotating.  This sounds like bearing noise to me.  Is this likely to be the bearings?  if so are these standard bearings and do i have to dismantle the drum to replace them?

Washer drum making loud noise when spinning

Reach into the drum (on a front-loader)and push upward to see if it moves at all, you should feel no play where the drum support shaft passes through the bearings... The bearings will "roar" loudly during spin if the main seal has leaked water into them... Top-load washers will exhibit the same roaring if the seal fails in them also.

GE Profile front loader washing machine is leaking front of door, believe the problem is the rubber washer ring, however can this be replaced?

Hello, this is usually the door seal, most machine incorporate a one piece combined door seal and outer drum seal(often just called a DOOR GASKET), the door seal are put in on the front panel first in the factory, then the drum assembly is put in and the seal pushed over the outer drum. This means a lot of stripping down has to be done just to replace the drum to the door seal.

My lg front loader washer is leaking softener or soap all over the floor under the washer

Check your door seal for damage, or build up of soap and lint. Replace if needed. Also check the hoses from the dispenser tanks to the washer drum for leaks.

Water leaking from the door and door will not unlock after washing

i just placed my order @ home depot for the LG TROMM front loader washer. i purchessed the 5 yr warrenty and i belive after reading some of the comments in here that this was a good move. I used a maytag neptune @ work and it was a peice of JUNK! it has the mildue smell everyone is talking about. i was told of a remidy for this smelly issue. pour a good amount of casscade dishwasher POWDER not liquid into the washer drum and then pour bleach into the wash slot on the fron loader and then put the washer on the longest setting and let the machine run the cycle. i hope this works for you. i will try it once a month om my front laoder when its delivered. GOOD LUCK!!!!

Front loader washing machine = black streaks on clothing

I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years once you have ruled out anything getting inside the machine by accident etc, like something in pockets or greasy overalls, then its likely to be the drum bearings, has the machine started to get noisy on the spin the drum bearings are covered by a rubber seal, this seal gets damaged or worn and water leaks into the bearings themselves washing out the grease back into the drum where the washing is, you could also notice slight water marks on the floor underneath the machine on the floor, take the back off and look for water marks coming from the drum outer casing behind the pulley, these marks will be brown and will originate from a small drain hole, if any of the above change the bearings before any real damage is done, either to the clothes or the machine, as repair can be expensive? sorry, hope i have helped you as to where to look at least,
