Unplug the machine before servicing. If you are satisfied with my answer please accept it, thank you! If you have any questions feel free to ask.

kingmz :

I see you have two screws still in there, have you removed those?

kingmz :

Also is that front part connected to the frame. I see a few screws at the base of that front piece. If those are attached then those might have to be removed.

Customer:

if you see there are lots of screws all around the motor which i removed then after i was unable to remove the whole motor

kingmz :

Yes, but I do see there are a few screws in the front middle, also there are screws at the base. I cannot see what is around the right part of that piece, there might be screws there.

Customer:

If you would like I can opt out if you to see if someone has a service manual for this unit. I can figure it out with you but I would understand if you would want to find another expert.

Hello.

 

Here is a link to a video that will show you how to get that rotor apart. It is alot easier than trying to explain it or type it step by step.

I can also get you a video that will show you how to take the washer apart and one that will show you how to replace a bearing on a front load washer(the bearing replacement video will be for a general unit and not for your LG unit because they all come apart similar).


Let me know if you need that info.

lg 1256 rd how to change the bearing on the drum

 

Expert:  Robert replied 5 years ago.
I just saw your post. Here a couple of videos for you. The first is how to take the unit apart. The second shows you how to take the unit apart and replace the bearing. Please remember that the bearing replacement is on a different model but it will show you how the repair is done. They don't have an actual video on the LG unit out yet. On this unit the bearing is included in the rear part of the tub. Do you have the part number you need to do the repair?
