Suspect you have a foreign object jammed between tub and drum.
to check, remove back panel, remove heater (held by one 10mm nut in the centre - just loosen the nut and prise the heater out.
you can then see into the gap and check if there is something stuck there - bra wires are the favourite

If you rotate the pulley on the back of the drum does it rotate the drum? i have seen these snap the back of the drum off. also they can have issues with the controller board for the motors which would require a technician to determine.

Awful bearing noise on spin.


Remove drum belt and spin drum by hand, if it is noisy or feels rough, then the main drum bearings have failed, which is a major repair.

Lg front loader makes squeaking sound and struggles to spin


The drum is powered by a small motor and pulley, inside the unit and under the drum. A large belt wraps around the drum and pulley, and a spring "thing" provides tension so that the belt won't slip. The squeaking sound indicates that something is slipping, and the sluggish drum says that it's the drive belt. Take off the back, locate the motor/pulley/spring thing, and check the belt tension by observing the belt with unit operating. At that point you should easily locate the noise, at the motor (noisy bearing, lube or replace), belt warn (replace) or possibly the felt pads located at the top of the drum worn (not as likely but they do fail causing the drum to resist being spun by the motor to the point that the belt starts to slip. Hope this helps!

Drum makes loud whinning noise when spinning at high rpms.


Remove drive belt.and turn drum by hand, if it feels rough or sounds noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed., also check that the main drum pulley is not loose. If you think it is the bearings, then it is quite an expensive repair.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks.

Wm noisy


drum bearings, check and investigate, remove drive belt and then rotate, if still noisy then yes its the drum bearings, if the noise stops when the belt removed the motor bearings are faulty costly repair on most models, sorry oh there is also the possibility there is something lodged within the drum cavity between the lining and the drum casing
