Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

Loud squeaky Noise

I bought a LG WM2277HW washer/dryer combo from Best Buy about 4 years ago and have had no issues. We have cleaned the washer filter but basically have not done anything else other than wash clothes. We notice that during the beginning of the cycle that the washer makes an unpleasant squeaky noise. We dealt with it for a few loads and were ready to call a repairman when it suddenly stopped. My wife told me that she had just stuffed a large load into the washer and moved the drum around more than normal in the process of getting all the clothes in the unit. It appears to have stopped because of the adjustment of the drum. However, the noise is back and louder. In addition, my wife notice during the last washing that a "rubber like" substance was on the clothes after the wash. The noise only happens during times when the washer is filing up with water. During the spin and washer cycles where no water is entering the unit, it is as quiet as the day we bought it. I would appreciate any advise.

    I have had several repairs done to combo unit that is less than 3 years old. The pump keeps giving out, impeller is stripped. I keep putting less and less clothes in and have spent about $1000 in the last year to keep unit, which is high water efficiency. Many wierd noises and too much time to wash and dry. Is it really worth it?

THEN AGAIN IT COULD SIMPLY BE THE FRONT DOOR BOOT. WHEN IT IS DRY, IT RUBS AGAINST A NOT SO PERFECTLY ROUND DRUM.(IN THE FRONT)AND THIS MAKES A HIGH PITCH SOUND.USE A CLOTH AND WIPE CAREFULLY BETWEEN BOOT AND DRUM. IT MAY ALLOW A GAP SUFFICIENT ENOUGH TO NOT RUB ON DRUM. IF IT WERE BEARINGS, ONE WOULD NOTICE WATER STARTING TO APPEAR ON THE FLOOR. IF THE NOISE GOES AWAY AT TIMES WHEN YOU FIDDLE IN THE FRONT, IT COULD SIMPLY BE THE BOOT.

One of two things: 1) you need to clean out your filter trap at the front lower left corner of your washer. Sometime items trapped here make funny noises. 2)The squeaky noise is caused by a secondary pump that is responsible puming water in and out of the washer. The part itself is $25 but labor to install it will be 5 times that amount.

Why is my LG TROMM frontloader dryer making a loud noise when running?


If the washer is making a loud noise the rear drum with bearing might need to be replaced. On this washer the bearing might not be sold separately, the entire rear drum might have to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. However, the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

My dryer is making a very loud squeaky noise. Is is the motor or something else?


Not the motor if it's still working. The noise is coming from the bushing that hold the drum in place.
