New member here. I have an older LG machine WM2016cw, which has started smoking when putting larger loads in it... I try to spin it and it seems like there is NO play in the bearing/spider gear, although, the rubber in the front has cracks/holes.
Is there a way to check the shocks on the bottom to see if they're still OK? I'm thinking that's the issue but want to be sure, of course. If the shocks are bad, I can see that the unit would move more and cause it to rub against the rubber during the spin cycle. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
