How do I free drum shaft K115 when it is frozen to the inner bearing?
Answer Hello Dan,
You would block up the outer tub of the unit where the inner basket is hanging. Put the nut on the threading so that it does not get damaged. spray a little wd 40 or penetrating oil around shaft and tap it out.
Back bearing failed. if entire replacement tub is used will I need to buy a new stator and motor?
Answer Hello Tosct,
The tub bearing can be replaced separately but may need to be pressed in. You would not have to buy new stator and motor even with new outer tub.
Does the upper outer tub come with the outer tub as a whole unit?
Answer Darwin, the inner drum 3045ER1006E does not come with the outer tub AJQ35154201. Only parts that come with the outer tub is the bearings and tub hoses. Thanks!
I read that LG updated the rear outer drum and that you have to replace the stator and rotor with rear outer drum replacement. The rear drum seal failed and took out bearings. Replace bearings and seals or rear outer drum ass. with bearings and seals installed?
Answer Hello Bob. It is best to replace the outer tub assembly AJQ35154201 with the bearings already installed, but you do have the option to replace just the bearings. If installed wrong, the bearings will leak, and you are back to square one again with the unit. This is why the assembly is best and easiest to do.
