Re: lg wash machine metal sticking throw outer drum

Pull washer out and remove card board in back of machine. inspect internalls to see where bar came from. its probably a loose bolt. do not remove cement block for this is your stabalizer. you should see clear paint or scratches where bar came from. replace bar with new bolts. run the machine in dry mode to see if its ok. if motor and belt is ok you should be allright. butttttt if bar went threw inner brum you might be better buying a used washer.

Can I safely use my washer if I hear something metal scraping during spin cycle?

You can, but I wouldn't. The outer skin of the drum is made of plastic. If it is a coin, it could dislodge, get caught again in mid spin and punch a hole straight through the plastic.

Get a flashlight and look between the seal and the outer drum when you open the door.

Kenmore Elite H3 washer's loud in spin cycle & smells burnt.Debris & plastic in well inside washer.Pushed aside rubber ring & saw lg. gap btwn. metal drum & surrounding plastic.Parts needing replace?

It sounds like the drum has broken from the rear mount. This will chew up the outer shell. This is a very labor extensive job. The parts are expensive also. You will probably need a new outer shell and inner drum.

There can be a loose bearing between the drum and the outer wall of the machine but, there is definitely something loose. I know that this is not what you would like to hear but, the best advice anyone can give you is have your machine looked at by a specialist. Moreover, going to your washing machine retail store, should have the equipment you are looking for, or you can search for it online and compare prices.

LG WM2277HW Outer Drum Metal Plate

Well er Jan er, since you insist on Yes you are!

Whilst I admire your self-motivation, I cannot endorse your actions for they are those of one ignorant of the requirements and knowledge as to how to carry out the task you have opted to do yourself.

Look.......because the machine is dis-assembled, that makes it very easy for a Technician to pop in and have a quick squiz for the cost of a Service Call. He may even guide you to being able to complete the task.
The upshot always is though, that it is usually wiser to leave such things to those skilled in what you are trying to do.

I am sure you will learn something worthwhile as you watch the Technician fix things for you. That, I would think would be reward enough in itself eh ?

The rear half of the outer tub that contains the rear metal bearing has loosened so much that the inner drum has sagged and is rubbing on the front half of the outer tub. You need to see if this is under warranty. There is usually a 5 year warranty on the outer tub and a 10 year or a lifetime warranty on the inner tub. When I do this repair, I replace the rear half of the outer tub and the inner drum since it's under warranty anyway. The repair is the most difficult and time consuming repair possible on that type of washer. It needs to be done by an expert, not just your average washer repair guy. It's not rocket science, but you have to take EVERYTHING apart and it takes a long time and you've gotta know a few things about the machine in the first place. It's not fun. If it's under warranty for parts, expect to pay between $75 and $200 for labor. If the parts are not under warranty, then throw it away. They're $500+ for the parts.

Foul smell inn LG Washer

you need to remove the inner wash drum and clean out the outer drum of ALL the soap and softener in the outer drum so it can drain properly, as it has started growing mold/mildew in the outer drum,also while it is out clean the door seal boot and make sure the drain boot hole is clear too that drains to the outer drum so it can all go down the drain,then put it back together and hot wash an empty tub in hot water and bleach

Other than seperating the drums you could try to remove the heater element which will allow you limited access to the cavity between the drums. Shine a torch in there and rotate the inner drum slowly untill the offending piece comes into view. Remove with a long tweesers or hook.
