LG 2010CW Front Load Washer has started wobbling during the spin cycle.
It started doing this after I stupidly put a lone bathmat in the washer, so the load was extremely unbalanced.
The washer shook violently, then made a loud noise. I could see that the front gasket was all squished.
I opened the top, and discovered that one of the springs had come loose at the top. I could also see that the shock absorber at the rear had separated (but both ends were still connected to the pins).
The spring appeared to be ok, so I put it back in place.
I ran a light load, and the washer vibrated a lot during the spin cycle.
I purchased a new OEM shock absorber and installed it. The washer still vibrates a lot during the spin cycle and you can see the drum wobbling.
The drum can be manually spun without noise; however, there is some play in the drum - it can be moved front to back slightly.
Any ideas on what might be causing this, and/or suggestions on how to fix?
I'll try to attach a video shortly.
