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.
