I just pulled the rear housing off my allison to fix the parking spring that broke and after fixing it and putting it back together, it doesn't want to move with runing the rpms up too 1600 any ideas


take the driveshaft loose at the emergency brake drum.. and put the unit in gear.. see if the drum turns..the speedometer should register if it does..in forward..it may be adjusted too tight..with the handle down(loose it should turn stiffly by hand in neutral(not running of course) check to see that the transfer case is not in low-lock..it should be in 2 wheel high for checking..good luck..

When the machine goes into spin cycle there is excessive vibration as if something was loose in the drum. Other wise the machine cycles fine. Is there someway to check for bolts or nuts loose on the drum....


Move the drum around by hand and listen carefully. There should be no loose bits or rattling, if there are it is possible that something has slipped in between the drums. It sounds as if the drum bearing may be failing. Grip the inner drum and move it up and down at the front while feeling for play relative to the outer drum. i.e hold outer drum and lift inner drum relative to where you are holding. There should be virtually no play.

The drum got loose because the one of the top drum springs got unhooked. The spring holder on the plastic drum cover is broken. It was noticed in time and turned off. So it seems that nothing else is...


will the plastic ring in the second ring move to the other ring . the danger is if you put the spring in the second ring the drum may not be line up straight when you look from the top (the motor may be further back) causing the motor and back to rub on the back plate when loaded might be better to drill new hole ?

I have a LG WM0532HW. What are the drum bolt sizes thr.& length


Hello Jeff,

Unfortunately, these are specially made bolts that have threads only on the first section of the bolt, so they can secure the wash drum and not interfere with anything else. You also need the special sleeves for the bolts. I would not try to use standard bolts from a hardware store, as they could damage the wash drum if you overtightened them or they were too long. LG, and most washer manufacturers, don't publish the size, thread count and length of their transport (shipping) bolts, hence the reason they advise to keep them for future use.

So if you're only moving the washer down a set of stairs, you should be fine if you take it easy and either hand carry it with two (2) people, or use an appliance truck to move it down the stairs.

If, however, you're looking to move the washer any distance via truck, etc., you'll want the shipping transport bolts and sleeves to keep the drum and suspension system from getting damaged.

You're best bet is to get in touch with LG customer support and obtain a set of the transport bolts. You can reach them by callling them from 8AM to 8 PM toll free at 1-877 714-7486 and follow the prompts to reach customer support.

Here's a link to the owner's manual for your washer, just in case you've misplaced yours.

Drum makes loud whinning noise when spinning at high rpms.


Remove drive belt.and turn drum by hand, if it feels rough or sounds noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed., also check that the main drum pulley is not loose. If you think it is the bearings, then it is quite an expensive repair.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks.

There are several possibilities. Your dryer drum may be off track with the rear drum support rollers. There is a groove that runs along the circumference of the drum that the rollers are supposed to ride it. Or, you may have roller that is binding up and not rolling freely. Lint can accumulate on them and causes them to stick. If you haven't cleaned the dryer interior lately, or lubricated the rollers, it may be time to do so. You could also have a rear drum seal that is worn and may be causing the drum not to stay seated properly. Please let me know if you have checked any of these possibilites. I can provide you instructions on how to replace any parts, if necessary.
