- Clutch and Tub Bearing Assembly
CustomerJoe from TX
The shaft that holds the agitator on broke off which means I had to replace the clutch assembly.
10mm socket, 1 1/2” socket, Phillips screw driver, impact, torque wrench.
Repair & Advice
Youtube has a good video on removing the clutch assembly on the LG washer. The hardest thing for me was getting the clutch to release from the bottom of the washer. It turns out it was just stuck because of the “gunk” buildup around the shaft. I tried a 2x4 and a hammer to no avail. I finally used Blaster penetrating oil to soak the shaft. I utilized a socket that was big enough to go over the shaft and sit flush on the base of the washer. I then basically sprayed the Blaster inside the socket to keep it in one area around the shaft. After about 15 minutes, I used the 2x4 and the hammer and it was out in one whack.
