Question about LG WM-1485FHD Front Load Washer
While disassembling my WM1485FHD to replace the bearings & seal, the larger inner bearing came away with the spider when I removed the inner drum from the outer.
All the guides I've seen assume that both bearings remain in the housing attached to the outer drum, where knocking them out is then a relatively trivial matter.
I've tried rocking the heated bearing, acting against the spider, but I've not succeeded in moving the thing at all yet. This is probably due to the poor access for the tools I have and fact that the seal (hard to remove completely due to the metallic parts) gets in the way and absorbs the bulk of the force.
Short of getting a set of pullers to remove the bearing, has anyone come across this before, or have any suggestions?

Sorry, but you are not so lucky. LG should not even offer those parts, as it takes special hydraulic presses to install some of that. For anyone but the manufacturer them self you must replace the back half of the outer drum (I believe it is a 3045ER0008C in your case) which contains the installed seal and bearing, plus I'd recommend replacing the spider asm 4434ER0002A, as the shaft may be a bit worn where it contacted the seal and bearing, and you don't really want to go through all that work (at least 2 hours) only to have to do it again. A FixYa rating would be appreciated. Thanks.

SOURCE: replace bearing
You can try a puller but typically it is recommended to replace the entire rear outer tub half (which comes with the bearings already pressed into it). You will also need the tub seal that goes between the front and rear tub halves. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: suspect drum bearings
Solution 3 just helped enormously when replacing the bearings on my WM-1485FHD - cheers! I would say though that having a 10mm wall-drive socket & spanner is essential for getting the spider free from the drum. My inner bearing was seized solid on the shaft meaning I had no choice but to replace the spider aswell. The cause of my woe was the fact that the bolt that holds the drum assembly together had come loose, this allowed play in the shaft and lead to the water passing the seal. I now plan to check this semi-regularly as it saves a *lot* of hassle.
