Be sure the unit is level, not just stable,with the four feet touching the floor. If the unit is not level the centrifugal force of the spin cycle will be distributed unevenly, causing more pressure to be exerted in one corner then the other. this causes the unit to slighty lift in the opposite corner, thus shaking or vibrating. Many people citing this problem have their washers in an upstairs laundry room. Some of these houses may lack the needed support to sustain these washers without the floor flexing. the quality of the building is a factor.

SOURCE: Front Loading LG Washing Machine leaves smelly sludge in wash tub

I have a front loading machine also and am not willing to have to constantly clean out the machine -- the soap and fabric softeners you use are building up between the inner and outer drums (and on the drum itself sometimes). Because the machines door is so tightly sealed (to prevent water leakage) the smell from this buildup is awful. I finally found the solution. MAGGIE'S SOAP NUTS -- they are all natural (grow on trees) and will remove the grime from your drum and also clean your clothes (you won't even need fabric softener anymore). Stop using commercial detergents and fabric softeners and start using Maggie's Soap Nuts. They are not very cheap but they work great -- I have found that making a liquid out of the soap nuts and storing it in a bottle works better than putting them in the sack cloth they come with (because front loaders do not agitate constantly like regular machines, the cloth bag sits on the clothes and sometimes leaves a stain -- the liquid will not leave a stain. YOU WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM AND HAVE SOFTER CLOTHES TO BOOT (without fabric softener so you save some money there). They are also better for septic tanks, the environment and your health! I believe Whole Foods sells them and they are also on the internet at www.Maggiessoapnuts.com Note: Also go to www.newstarget.com -- they are going to buy these in bulk to cut the cost in half but don't have them yet. You should be able to buy them there soon.

SOURCE: Brown spotting on washed clothes

chances are if you have eliminated anything thats got in by accident that the drum bearings are about to go, the drum bearings are protected by a water seal, this has started to leak and is now washing the grease out of the bearings back into the wash, you may also find a small amount of water on the floor, if you also remove the back and look behind the large pulley you may also see brown water marks running from the center of the outer drum

the next step will be a very noisy spin, like a rumbling noise

DRUM BEARINGS sorry

SOURCE: Washer LG Model WD-8013F Noisy & vibrates badfly when spinning

hi all you poor owners of this heap of junk, i have one too with the same problems, the shaking and moving around the bathroom was stopped by welding a 1/2 inch long piece of 1 &1/2 inch dia pipe to a 2 inch square flat plate of steel then putting double sided sticky tape beetween the plate and the floor
where you want the front rubber legs to sit, this stops it from running around the floor but it still needs to adjusted to have the
same on the front two legs to stop the shaking.by leaning the machine back a bit also helps to stop it leaking so bad while filling, it is only from the condersation from the hot water going in and the poor design of the soap drawer not allowing the water to run back into the washer which can be fixed by cutting the lip off
the bottom wher the drawer slides in then running a bead of silcone in the crack between the front cover and the inside piece
then another one on the front edge to run the water back into the washer. hpoe this helps. bryan.

SOURCE: bad bearings on front loading lg washer 1832cw

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.

I have a LG front loader WD-1049C it's 6 yrs old And has just started to make a loud noise while in spin cycle All other cycles are fine


If the washer is making a loud noise the tub bearing might need to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. The manufacturer recommends that if possible the complete outer tub and bearing be replaced rather than attempting to replace just the bearing in the tub. If the bearing is bad the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine

How do i change the tub bearing on a LG front load washer?


Unless you are a skilled DIY person, I do not recommend that you try to replace this tub bearing on the washer yourself. One has to virtually strip the entire machine to remove the tub to accomplish this bearing replacement.
If you are skilled, then please supply the model number of your machine.

LG Front Load WM1815cs Makes loud noise when spinning. Inner tub is loose and seems to bounce making loud noise. Is this more than a bearing problem?


The outer tub and the bearing will need replacing as by replacing only the bearing will be a short lived repair as it will go the same way.

How to Replace Bearing Ball on a LG Front Load Washer??? The bearing ball is leaking water and makes loud noise. need to fix problem please help.


The rear half of the outer wash drum (which contains the rear bearing and tub shaft seal) needs to be replaced. On a 1 - 10 scale, this rates a difficulty rating of about an 8. An experienced appliance tech can do it in about 2 hours, and hit you up for about $500. I do not suggest this as a do it yourself repair. Did you know that the new LG machines use a balance ring to make them much smoother running? (Hint: It may be wiser to replace the machine.)

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.

Removing the bearings from my direct drive washing machine


If you're talking about the rear drum support bearing, they are usually not removable. They are molded into the plastic tub shell. When the bearings go bad you generally have to replace the entire back shell of the wash tub.

Removal of the bearings


Those bearings are almost impossible to remove.  You would be better off replace the rear half of the tub assembly as it comes with everything.
