My old, overused 8-9 year-old LG WM2277HW washer finally needs replacing. It knocks loudly when spinning and you can feel a grinding/looseness while spinning the back of the washer in either direction. The back nut is tight too. Repairclinic.com has the bearings for around $60 but they have notes saying it's a difficult job and LG recommends a new rear drum/bearing assembly. The new rear drum/bearing assembly won't work with the old rotor/stator so all 3 parts end up being about $360. Sounds like too much for an old washer to me.
I had the old LG washer stacked (with the LG bracket kit from way back) with an LG DLG5988W gas drier.
I'm interested in buying a new LG WM2250CW. My old washer/dryer are 27" and the WM2250CW is 27" as well. Will the old dryer stack with the new washer? I compared a picture of the new mounting kit with my old kit that's still on the washer top and they look about the same.
Will the old dryer mount on top of the new washer either with the old kit or the new one LG sells?
