Hi, LG WD-8026C 7Kg intellowasher drum is nosiey and stiff. The noise seems to be coming from the front ,near the boot, rather than the back at the belt or motor. Still turns by hand but the drum seems out of round when viewing from the front. The belt looks the right tension (an inch play?) and does not seem to be slipping. Tried to remove the heater to check for objects but could not budge it. Only took out the earth nuts? Not sure how to access the front to see behind the boot. I guess the unit is 3 years old...just out of warranty... Any tips would be fantastic..

If the washer is not spinning you need to check on the motor, motor capacitor and the power from the program controller unit. If there is no power to the motor then the controller is a suspect. Please check this link for tips: removing the motor:
Hi, The problem is due to the rubber boot is been torn that is causing you the leak. You have to check the rubber boot for leaks by removing the clamp assembly that secures the rubber boot to the outer lip of the door opening. Peel off the rubber boot then inspect it for any holes where it may be leaking. The rubber boot in your washer can be accessed only when you remove the front panel. This requires the removal first of the top panel then the console. Also check your inlet hoses on the outside of machine, also check the connections inside the panel in back. Thank you !!
I have the EXACT same problem wit the LG 8015C. After numerous attempts, I finally found the problem. A set of wires attached to the drum body vibrates against th erear panel, wears off the plastic insulation, shorts and blows the circuit board. All because of sloppy workmanship ! It took 4 years of easy work for this to occur. Will NEVER buy an LG or Front Loader again
Sounds like it's scraping against your heater element.Remove back panel then remove heater element(two prongs with nut in centre)you will be able to see signs of damage if so that will have to be replaced. £20 - £30.00p. Your either overloading your machine or your bearings are have gone, to check bearings pull inner drum while holding outer drum if get movement and knocking they will also need replacing.
Unplug power cable, remove top cover and inner panel, locate water level sensor on the right with 3 wires and a thin tube, remove the tube and puff into it until you hear water bubbling. This will clear any blockage caused by suds build up. Replace tube, covers and plug back in. It should complete cycles now.
