Hi Guys,

Can someone please guide in the right direction. I have a LG WD-80130F Front Loader washing machine and I need to replace the drum bearings but don't know whether I have to take the whole out the washing machine or there is a simple way to do it. I would like to fix it myself so please any advise/guidance will be highly appreciated it.

thanks.

Harby.

Hi Harby,

Unfortunately I'm not familiar with LG washers. Maybe somebody else on the forum can help you better.

Crunch into Google (LG CS Academy) and select the same name. Find your model # and download the service data. As far as I can see, they do not give tub tear down info, but the info can be of some help. When pounding out bearings, make sure you do not pound out good bearings, just pound out the bad ones.

I got the tub split in half, soaked the shaft in liquid wrench and I still can't pound the shaft out of the bearing. Any tricks?

to answer the initial question, yes, disassembly and pounding are required.

Once I had the tub split in half, I put it up on blocks and soaked it in liquid wrench over night. I got the center where the bearing met the shaft and the outer edge where the bearing met the tub.

In the morning I put the bolt back in the end of the shaft and hit it HARD with a heavy hammer. It eventually dropped out.

Then I flipped it over and soaked down the edges of the inner bearing. While that was soaking, I pounding out the outer bearing with a punch and heavy masonry hammer. I tried to work slowly, but I had to hit it really hard to get it started.Once started, I could work my way around and work it out slowly.

Then I flipped it back and pounded out the inner bearing. I put the end of a crow bar on it as it would span the whole bearing and I didn't have to worry about it twisting as it came out. But I still had to hit it hard to get started.

Then I cleaned all the inner surfaces and re-assembled.

By the way, I replaced both bearings, the seal and the tub gasket(seal where the two halves joined. I'm glad I did them all.

except for the pounding, the job took 2 hours. I probably spent two more hours on the pounding and cleaning.

Never would have gotten it done without the excellent videos on this site.
