Look for broken wing and missing spring on throw out clutch on motor. Wing breaks off and you might find spring on bottom of machine. Most guys replace motor but I drill and new hole in wing with an 1/8 drill bit then thread the spring thru and re-attach spring back in place. Save yourself a motor replacement.


 If I find a picture of it in my phone Ill post it.  This happens a lot on LG and Samsung motors [size=78%]https://www.appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=21891.msg112983#msg112983[/size]

I saw the pictures of the wing.  If you find a picture of your repair, I would love to see it.  I am a visual person.
