Need help with LG WM2016CW Noise

Need help with LG WM2016CW Noise

It started making a clunking noise. It was unattended for a while, most likely with an unbalanced load.

It makes a not as loud noise often now. We found this strange material in the wash and lots of it in the filer.

Photo attached

Anyone have any idea what is going on?

Thanks,

Tony

Thanks so much for your assessment. Is that a major repair or something worth fixing? I've never had to deal with appliance repair.

The machine was in the house when we moved in 5 years ago. I have no idea how old it is.

usually if the support for the tub is bent or broke  or bearings are gone it's the final nail in the coffin.
Depending how handy you are you would need to rebuild it.  Not an easy job.  A job like that for most experienced techs is 4-5hrs depending on space in the area to work on it. For the average diy'er i would expect 10+hrs

I just did a bearing job on an LG that a customer gave to me.  I had never done one before. Took me about an hour or so, but I was in my garage with lots of room and tools.
There are some good videos out there. I did not change the spider, just the bearings. It wasn't too bad of a job.
I would not want to do it in a small laundry room.

location is key. Most of the places are barely big enough for the machine let alone tearing it apart LOL
