My wife alerted me that my LG front loader was leaking. After I was able to check everything out I noticed that my bearings were shot. I also noticed some sort of brown powdery substance in the back of the machine mostly where the Rotor Assembly is located. I was going to order some parts to fix my washer but I am confused as to all the parts I need. Could you tell me what is needed to fix. I planned on ordering the "Rear Drum with bearing" but I think I might need more than that because I am not sure if fixing this would also fix the leak. The water seem to be leaking around the door boot seal. And from what I have been reading the brown residue is rust from rear drum support. Should I replace it also?
Thanks so much,
If the bearings are bad then you would definitely want to replace the rear tub AJQ35154201. The Brown residue could also be coming from the bearings. When the bearings go bad they usually have rust that goes on either side and would cause a brownish residue. You may not actually be able to tell until the unit is part.
