True, but that one didn't have a "delicate" cycle. 

I believe it did...

from the Lowes description:

8 automatic cycles including Normal Extra Heavy, Gentle and Permanent Press to handle a variety of fabric types and soil levels


.

one of my video productions: “Easter Seals: Walk With Me”

every day is Down Syndrome Awareness Day
"A Child Is Waiting" . Burt Lancaster . Judy Garland . 1962

Ok, I missed that.  Didn't spend much time reading it, since the inventory is gone, according to...

no longer made ..
dwindling inventory seems to have vanished
2 years ago, NEW as low as $ 249 on sale
http://appliantology...d-washer-dryer/

The one that's available now is the Amana, and I need to check on it to see if it's direct drive or the new style.  And if the new style, is that good, or bad?  Or, should I repair my LG Tromm?

If repairing the WM2277 washer is your decision---you're in the right place for assistance :)


Edited by john63, 03 January 2013 - 09:32 PM.

To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Huh? Okay, you edited, now it's complete.

 

Alrighty, I was trying to assess whether it was worth repairing, but I'll approach it from the assumption that it is, and I should...

I looked up the bearing on this site, and there was an advisory that I should buy the bearing and rear drum as an assembly. That part was not listed.  Dead end?

The BEARINGS can be replaced either as a sub-assembly (rear tub half shell) or the BEARINGS and SEAL can be replaced.

 

The following parts will be needed:

 

1) Stainless steel INNER DRUM (3045ER1006E)

 

2) Tub O-Ring (4036ER4001B)

 

3) Rear Tub/Bearing Assy (AJQ35154201) or instead of the rear shell...

 

a) Inner Bearing (4280FR4048L)

b) Outer Bearing (4280FR4048E)

c) Bearing Seal (4036ER2004A)

Well, that puts the parts/shipping somewhere around $500, and the S/S inner drum isn't even in stock.  Thanks for the guidance.  Looks like it's time to replace it.
