Hey all,

 

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?

 

Thanks,

 

DH

OK, I may be willing to replace the bearings now (about $70 or so with a new drum seal) after I saw a 15 minute or so video showing how to replace both of the tub bearings on this video link:

I think it was a Duet model he worked on in the video but I'm thinking it would be the same type of work involved for my LG WM2277? It looks like all you did was split the drum case and install the 2 new bearings and a seal if you want and you're done without special tools.

 

Oh and another thing I didn't mention in the original post here. After the washer started knocking a week or two ago, it wouldn't turn the clothes all the way around like these front-loaders normally do. From what I remember before it would spin one way 4-5X or more (taking the clothes from the bottom of the drum to the top and they would fall down, etc.) and then spin the other way 4-5X or more and then repeat the cycle. Now the clothes (and drum assly) start at about 8-9 o'clock and the drum spins counter-clockwise to about 3 o'clock and then it goes back to 8-9 o'clock without spinning around in a circle 4-5X. The clothes never tumble in the washer anymore from bottom to top and back down again. Is something stripped or would bad bearings or something else cause this to go on?
