I just finish repairing my LG front loader and this sounds like the same issue. The back of the drum has a spider arm and spindle arrangement (think that the name) the spider are was corroded and broke after 10 years, this puts the drum off balance and chews up the gasket. I had to also repair the wash tub where the drum had worn into it and JB Weld worked fine. It all seem to work fine now.

SOURCE: My primary drive belt is wearing the plastic

Only two possibilities. Either the motor has not been installed properly (it's out of alignment), or the intermediate pulley is out of alignment. Of the two, I'd suspect the intermediate pulley first (except then you'd expect trouble with the secondary belt too...). If you've already solved the problem, perhaps you'd post a comment to let us know what you found.

SOURCE: I had the valve cover gasket changed on my 1996

on a v6 ? Low on oil? rear cam plugs leaking? The lifters are on the end of the rocker arms and may get clogged. I have had some luck running 0w30 mobil synthetic for about a week or so with a new oil filter [Not a fram filter] and after that put 10w30 synthetic oil back in and a new filter. Check for oil leaking at other locations. If the noise is at the front of engine near water pump it may be the hydraulic timing belt tensioner.

Hi

The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You do need to check the motor drive. Make sure the belt is not slipping or worn. That could be the case. It may be wearing out as you have suggested. You just need to get to it and determine the cause.

It sounds like your leaving the clothes in the washer long after the cycle is finished. Once your clothes smell from the washer they will smell moldy dry.

The top part of the aggatator does not turn


Washer has trouble agitating... Check the agitator dogs inside the top of the agitator, they are bad for wearing out, sometimes the agitator may only agitate one way when the dogs are worn out. This is an instruction sheet that came with the last parts I ordered for a Whirlpool/Inglis style direct drive washer agitator. If you need to replace your agitator dogs, please see this link for some repair aid.


Replace the dogs its a easy fix for you

Dryer noise


A drum support wheel bearing could need lubrication or be replaced.  Also some drum support wheels have a rubber coating that wears off causing misalignment and noise.  Possibly drum gasket (sometimes felt material) where drum meets rear panel is worn allowing metal-to-metal contact--should be replaced.

Very loud noise as drum is spinning


Hi, I think that the bearings may be wearing down and need to be replaced. Or the belt may be faulty and needs replacing.

To tell if the bearings are wearing down or need replacing, turn the drum by hand when it is empty and it will make like a grinding noise.

If the belt is torn, frayed or coming off the motor you will need to physically look.

Washer makes noises


You said, when the washer is going into spin cycle it makes a loud clunking noise. You are wondering if this could be the brakes or possibly the pump?

Sounds like this!

Faulty direct drive Coupling (Whirlpool / Kenmore / Roper / Estate)
The direct drive (motor) Coupling may be broken. Many Whirlpool/Kenmore brands washing machines utilize a small, relatively inexpensive direct drive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other.

It can wear out over time or fail under overloading conditions. This protects your transmission from excessive loading.
it can also be a broken spring or strut dependping on your washes make and type
