Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

There isn't a spec grease used, in fact there isn't any grease used. If it's squealing, call out your warranty because this is highly unlikely that this is going to be a "filth" issue causing the squealing. It sound like something is starting to fail.

Ok, we have to go by it..I'm pretty sure their going to try to wriggle out of it and charge a
150$ callout fee...(Horizon warranties)...

You can always refuse and kick them out of your house and get a second opinion from another company if they really wanted to push the issue, but I can't see how a build up or grime would cause a squeaking noise when the washer is running.

How do you undo this double faced knockout nut that's in the centre of the main shaft mount at the bottom of the drum setup? any experience...thanks again...
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
This double faced nut obviously needs a special tool to untorque the drive shaft
thrust bearing setup?? and gets you into the area where the grease has puttied up,
because I get a fair bit of flaked grease when running a sock under the drum support disk
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 5 years ago.
That requires a specialty tool that you get from LG to remove.
