I have a LG WM2016CW that had a spider break completely off.  Evidently it has been limping along for some time as the front tub enclosure was being worn away with some of the plastic melted.  Should I replace that piece for any reason?

 

More importantly do I replace the rear tub enclosure as there was certainly big time stress put on the bearings.  The dilemma is spend the $160 for the rear tub enclosure on top of the  $80 for the spider,  or call the whole thing a loss and buy new. 

 

Finally, is there a resistance reading to tell if the rotor position sensor is good?  One complaint was an odd ozone/oily smell also. In the forum someone mentioned this was solved by replacing that sensor.  I believe it might have been the tub rubbing on the enclosure.

 

Thanks'

 

Tim

Hmmmm. 

 

Very new to the forum.  I can't seem to find a way to upload the files.  I see the Gallery, but don't see any upload options
