Appliance: LG Washer WM2032HW
My Repair & Advice
I suspected the tub gears where ready to break so I dismantled my LG WM2032HW front load washer. I found the spyder gear corroded and broken. I also found that the stainless steel drum abraded the front tub cover so bad, it was cracked. My washer is an early model and always had standing water in the door seal after a wash. What I learned is LG stopped making the orginal front tub cover and replaced it with one that had a drain hole at the bottom front edge. I also learned that this new front cover would only work with a new door seal that had a drain hole at the bottom. I had to buy a new hose that connected the door seal drain with the drain hole in the front tub cover. All in all, the repairt was somewhat easy. I replaced the tub bearings, tub seal, front tub cover, spyder gear, and the door seal. Washer working fine.
