Repair Or Replace 5 Yr Old Lg Machine With Bearings Problem


Recommended Posts

Advice appreciated on whether it is worth repairing my 5 year old LG WD14316RD whose bearings have gone. The machine has been making a lot of noise and the drum is very wobbly so I think the problem is the bearings/ spider. I'm worried also that the outer drum may have been damaged as some plastic-y fibrous material which smelled electrical came out of the filter. We are heavy users of the machine (c. 12 times a week) and I'm worried it may have reached its 'natural' lifespan. Repairs would be 25-30% of the replacement cost (of a better, more efficient machine) - do you think this is worthwhile or a case of 'good money after bad'?

Many thanks!

These days 5 years for a normal washing machine washing 12 times a week is pretty good. They aren't usually designed to last much longer than that.
