Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

Everything works great -until the spin cycle - loud noise

When my machine gets to the spin cycle after it speeds up (about 3-4 minutes in) there is a loud noise that sounds like something is clanking as the drum spins. It is so loud that we can not finish the cycle. It does not sound good. I have taken off the access panel in back and do not see anything. It sounds like the sound is coming from inside the drum casement. Is there a way to access this, or what may be the problem?

Machine making loud noise on spins cycle


Well, the only time the washer (speedqueen) is noisy on spin is if one or both the bearings are faulty. Normally when you get a leak, it means the hub/flange and seal kit need replacement and this also includes the top bearing because when soap suds leak past the seal assembly it drips directly onto the bearing. The acidic properties in the soap suds eats the grease in the bearing which ends up becoming defective. One can also get an anoying squeek if a bottom base gasket is worn or removed. This would be audible even on wash cycle.Conclusion, check the bearing on top of gearbox.

Kenmore 80 Series washing machine - loud banging at end of spin


With the lid open, set the cycle to spin and press the lid switch button with a pen. Wait until the drum gets to full speed and release the lid switch. If the drum makes a knocking/ thumping noise and doesn't stop spinning within 2-3 seconds, the basket drive block is worn and needs to be replaced. (The basket drive block is located on the gearcase drive shaft, under the tub and agitator) If this has been happening for a long time you may need to replace the brake and drive tube assembly as well.

Basket drive block part number is 389140

If that's not it, let me know and I will try to help you further.
Good luck!

Look for loose wiring connection at the motor capacitor (located beside the motor). Remove the connectors to the capacitor (one at a time), adjust connectors so they crimp the capacitor connection tabs tighter if necessary, and re-install. *Be very careful not to touch both capacitor connection tabs at the same time or you will get a good zap!*
If that doesn't help, you may have a defective motor.
Good luck!

Shows "LE" in display.


Machine has a bad motor or "stator" on this machine. It is a direct drive winding on the back of the machine. Remove the back panel, the one bolt removes the rotor then you will see the stator winding, replace it and your good to go.
