I would wait for others to chime in, as I do not want any money WASTED.

Just a reminder, any parts purchased through either of our two affiliates, RepairClinic.com and AppliancePartsPros.com are backed by a 365 day return policy that enables you to return any part for any reason for replacement or refund within one year of ordering; this covers all parts, including electrical and special order parts. 

So if a part you purchased did not correct the problem your money is not wasted as the part can simply be returned for a refund.

Also Sears does not support our forums like RepairClinic.com and AppliancePartsPros.com

It was the same after the Update that was done yesterday. However, today I ran it empty using the Diagnostic Test for Spin and it worked then I ran the Drain/Spin Cycle and it completed without any error codes. Tomorrow, I'll run it with a load of laundry and see what happens.
If I get the UE error again then I'll call Sear's to discuss the problem/part.
Otherwise, I'll order it from one of your sources listed above (if needed) but I assume it won't have the software update.

I was reading that a out of balance can be caused with the spring in the clutch on the topload lg's.The logic comes from LG's repairs for the problem. I have one that has had everything replaced's so I ordered one. I will update if it resolves the issue.Wondered if anyone else had run into this, and how you tell if the clutch is the problem?Without replacing everything else !!

IDK buddy, does not make sense to me??? You would not believe how simple these DD clutch mechanisms are. The only spring I am aware of should not have anything to do with how it spins, as long as it does spin.... :D

I really like there washers. And have not had a lot of problems with them,but now have 3 that keep unbalancing. Looking at the records on them about everything has been replaced,a couple of at least twice.Software was updated also. So I'm trying a clutch on one. One I really think is customer issue. But that still leaves the other two.And yes they all spin. Thanks, hopefully Wild or John can share some information.
