This is a fun task. Not sure of this model number, whether it has a heater or not, if it does you can remove the heater and attempt to get out whatever it is out through there. The other way is to remove the bottom bellows, drain out the water through the drain trap first, this will give you a bit of access. The easiet way is to take the front panel off, otherwise you would have to tip the unit back, securing it, and trying to access it that way.

good luck.

Washing machine drum seems to be jammed. Filter is clear. Drive belt seems to be intact OK and intact. Any suggestions?

sounds like something jammed between the inner and outer drum.
sometimes people get curtain hooks jammed in there. Obviously turn off the power before you start dismantling it. Sometimes you can get access via the drain plug opening with a long screwdriver or something.

LG WM 0642 HW Direct Drive Making a thumping sound when spinning and smells like burned rubber. Smoke coming out of durm when front load door was opened.

Hi Paul.
What you're describing is probably the inner drum rubbing on the door seal.
It could be because the rear bearing assembly has collapsed or because the drum is distorted.
Turn the drum slowly by hand and see if the gap between the rim of the drum and the rubber seal stays the same. This will tell you if the drum is 'round' or bent out of shape.
Alternatively, if the drum flops up and down inside the outer drum it would be because of bearing collapse
Either of these situations would require a service visit and parts.

I have an LG washer that is about 10 years old. Never had a problem with it until today. Several minutes into the wash cycle, the drum tries to turn but can't. It makes a high pitched sound and tries to...

Your guess seems right as the damaged zipper could be stuck within the drum or movement and could cause friction to the movement. You can remove power and try to check on the free movement of the drum, if not the drum assembly must be removed and reset.

Drum won't spin

Replace the motor sensor 1st to see if that will take care of it.  If not, then the motor may have a problem.

Wm noisy

drum bearings, check and investigate, remove drive belt and then rotate, if still noisy then yes its the drum bearings, if the noise stops when the belt removed the motor bearings are faulty costly repair on most models, sorry oh there is also the possibility there is something lodged within the drum cavity between the lining and the drum casing
