Had customer call about grinding noise in spin cycle.  Also clothes not wrung out enough because tub not spinning fast enough.

LG top load washer.

M# WT5001C

I looked up the tech manual at Appliantology.org (thanks) and it is a direct drive. 

Just wondering if anyone had encountered this problem.  And wanted to know if it is a complete tear down to replace the coupling?  What is the best way to go about taking that apart.  It also looked as if a coin or nail could get down under the "puls" plate.  I am guessing it is called that. There was no parts list in the tech manual. 

Thanks for any help.

Have you come across this problem before?  Should I look toward the coupling as the problem?  I am guessing I access this from the back and pull it apart from the bottom up.

Grinding in spin... first stop is the drain pump.  Get into test mode and run the drain pump.  If gravelly-sounding, come git you one ==> http://www.repaircli...EA1004E/2134503
