Where to buy LG front load washer front basket
« on: March 07, 2014, 06:50:19 PM »
The spider on my LG WM2077CW washer broke causing the drum to rub on the front basket where it wore several holes through the plastic basket. I was informed that the basket has been discontinued and no longer available. I've looked online and cannot find this part. Does anyone know where to source this piece? MFG Part Number 3551ER0003Q

It's 2005 or 2006.

If it's no longer available, it's not worth fixing due to other parts that may not be available anymore.  IE: control boards, display boards, etc.

I am going to attempt to weld the areas where the tub has worn through the basket. I'm sure there's going to be some vibration stresses on the tub, but I'm hopeful theses welds will hold.

You may also want to post a "Wanted:" topic in our new "For Sale/Wanted" board.
Maybe one of our tech members will have one sitting around they would love to get rid of.

Here it is at Repairclinic for an unbelievable price of $12.30.  I would call and make sure it's not a mistake before ordering. Part number MCK67291502.

I searched that part number and found it on Amazon for $14 from another company. I guess the price is correct. I did order it from repair clinic and will be delivered Thursday. Thanks for your help in finding this part. BTW, where did you find the MCK part number?

I searched on Repairclinic by the model number.  Let us know if you actually get a tub and not just a screw or something.

Got the part Thursday and it was a perfect match. All parts came in and my washer is now running although I have to locate two very small leaks.
