    Default LG WM2101HW Jet Noise while Spinning

    Model Number: WM2101HW
    Brand: LG
    Age: 6-10 years

    My washer must be using a jet engine to spin the tub. I have been reading up on these forums about this and watching repair videos. Today I decided to open it up to see what I could see. Looking at the photo below, do I have a bad bearing?? Looking at the Appliance Pro Parts site for the bearings and they are "discontinued". I will call LG and see if they are part of the warranty. I plan on ordering the spider, tub gasket, and rotor. If Im digging in this deep I want to have all the possible parts I need and return them if not needed.

    You sure you want to put that much work into an LG machine?

    LG has discontinued selling the bearings separately, but when the order the complete outer tub assembly it comes with the new bearings and new seal already installed for you.

    Here's the outer tub assembly for your model you can order: Tub Assembly,outer

    That will fix the jet engine noise.
