My Repair & Advice
I watched your video twice, ordered the recommended parts (2 bearings, seal, thin gasket for between the plastic tub halves, and spider arm), and got to work with the video running. The biggest hurdles were getting the inner tub separated from the outer tub half, getting the bearings out, and reattaching the big gasket with the two spring locks. I'm a 45 year old female attorney - my husband had to pound the inner tub and bearings out - I just wasn't strong enough. Detaching and reattaching the tub from the springs is a two person job also. Other than that it's easy breezy for one (me, a chic) and the parts/step are almost exactly as shown in the video. Our electrical was a little different and there were a couple of other minor differences between our LG and the one in the video, but other than that it was exactly the same. It did take several hours, but it was well worth it (I worked slowly and methodically and kept my parts uber-organized)! (I recommend a sledge hammer for banging things out - do use a piece of wood to protect the spider arm spindle in case your spider is in good shape - ours was. Also, a dead blow hammer was useful). I gave this repair a difficulty rating of 2 because most of it is very easy. But the couple of parts that are hard are HARD.
