Simple Spider Question - TROMM

(1/3) > >>

RichardU:
This is embarrassing. I have successfully disassembled the WM2487HRM LG washer. Now I need to replace the spider which is held on by six bolts. When I try to remove those bolts, they turn, but do not loosen. So, there must be a nut on the other side that I need to hold. That would be under the lifters (paddles) inside the drum. I remove the outer piece of the lifter. Then remove the bolt that goes through the drum. Now I should just slide the lifter so the tabs can get to the enlarged parts of the slots. Nothing doing. The lifters do not move. (Yes, I have lifted up the bent part of the drum that lock them in.) What in the world am I doing wrong? I have tried everything short of what I think might break them.

Thanks,

Richard

AJ:
Never replaced a spider on a LG washer myself.
Maybe the service manual can provide a clue.

RichardU:
Thanks for replying AJ. The service manual does not go into that level of detail. Certainly someone has replaced a spider on an LG.

scrapiron:
I just replace the basket assembly, Never tried changing just the spider.

wildimaginations:
If you order the entire drum assembly, the spider part comes already attached.  It's also covered under their part warranty.
