  • n for ur rattling during spin cycle please do the followin checks..

    Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs

    Before working on the washer, unplug the appliance or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

    A washing machine may wiggle, rattle or move across the floor. It is often accompanied by excessive noise. There can be several causes and the problem is worse with some machines more than others.
    The most common cause is an unbalanced wash load. Open the lid and when it comes to a stop, redistribute the clothing to balance the weight. Heavy loads, especially things like comforters, are more likely to become unbalanced than small loads. If you do a lot of heavy loads, you should consider a heavy duty/large capacity washer when it comes time to replace your current unit.

    A washer must be level both from side to side as well as from front to back. Washing machines have adjustable feet to enable you to level them. See our article on how to level your washing machine.
    The outer tub is supported by springs, pistons or counterweights to keep it balanced. The weight of all that water in a wash load requires a powerful balancing mechanism. If the balancing system becomes detached from one or more points, it will not be able to balance the load properly. Furthermore, even if everything appears to be in place, as the appliance ages, the springs or pistons may begin to wear out and not support as much weigh as needed.
    Unplug the washer and open the cabinet. Because of the variety of balancing mechanisms, you will have to inspect your machine to determine how it is balanced. Once you discover the mechanism, then inspect it for integrity. In the case of old parts that appear to be in working order, you may not be able to tell if they need to be replaced. They may be weak but appear to be in good condition. If no other solution resolves the problem, then replacing the balancing springs or other moving support parts may be called for.
    Another common cause for excessive movement is the floor on which the washer rests. The washer is heavy and even more so when filled with water. Any floor, other than a concrete slab, will tend to pick up and amplify the vibrations from the machine.
    There are a couple things you can try. If you have access to the joists under the floor, you may be able to beef up the support. Another thing to try is placing a large sheet of plywood under the washer. It should be 3/4" or even 1" thick and as large as possible to distribute the weight. Use a sheet big enough for both the washer and dryer to sit on. If possible fasten the plywood to the existing floor.

    • General tips mentioned above
    • Balance the load
    • Level the machine
    • Inspect the water pump for a blockage
    • Inspect the coupling
    • Inspect the transmission
    • Adjust the drive belt tension
    • Check the motor bearings
    • Check the drum brakes
    Please rate this solution.Thank you..

    I replaced the rotor at the back of the tub and that stopped the noise and vibration. Washer is now quieter than when it was new. Cost me $53 for a new rotor and I just had to remove the back panel to change. Try this before going at the bearing.

    Why won't my LG model WM2688HNM front load washer not drain? It spins and makes noise


    sounds like a bad or clogged water pump but may also have to look the door switch which on some models wont allow it to spin or agitate? a bad motor coupler will not allow spinning or have bad weak spin cycle sorry cant be more specific by the way front loads tend to be a pain in the___ to work on good luck

    Rattling noise in spin, spin problems becoming more pronounced. control panel lights flash but 0 error codes. unplug 2 reset, probl repeats


    If this noise is happening while it's trying to drain water then you have something floating around in the lump. Coins are very common. If the noise is happening during a spin cycle and more pronounced during the final high spin cycle, you have bearing or spin tub issues. Time to go shopping.

    Water leaking and loud noise and rattling on final spin cycle


    Turn the drum by hand and if you hear any noises it is the rear bearing. If there is no noise then remove the front bottom panel and take out the coin trap on the pump and check those hoses.

    LG Tromm WM2277HW during high speed spin makes noise


    I had exactly the same symptom...grinding noise only during high speed spin cycle.

    I took the top and back panels off to see how the drain hoses etc. connected. Not wanting to take it apart further, I eventually just took the washing machine outside (I knew I was going to be dealing with water!), pulled the debris catcher front side bottom, and let rip with a garden hose inside the drum with the catcher out (leaving an open drain that could flow unimpeded).

    Water flowed quickly out of the open drain, and lo and behold, a small drill bit came out with the water flow. This bit, presumably had gotten through the drum grating, and was resting on the bottom of the housing, scraping and grinding when the drum was spinning.

    LG Intello wm-1460FHD stops spinning during the wash load.


    OE is a drain error (indicating the machine has not drained out in under 10 minutes). If the drain pump is not coming on at all then you have a bad drain pump motor. If it is trying to drain then you may have a clogged up drain hose. The most likely cause is a bad drain pump motor. Hope this helps.

    Admiral makes rattling noise during spin


    Hello, could be a possible bad pump. I would lean the washer back so you can see the belt. take the belt off and spin all of the pulleys. the pump pulley has a s leave that sometimes makes a grinding noise.

    Vibration during spin cycle


    Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
    Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
    If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

    Rattling noise during spin cycle


    Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
