This is indicative of a bad impeller in the drain pump motor, it will most likely need replaced.

Make sure you check the drain filter for any loose coins or articles that may have been trapped and hitting against the drain pump impeller. If it is clear then the motor is indeed bad. Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Machine will wash on hot only will not on cold or will not fill with cold at all


This is an indication that the solenoid on the cold water valve is bad. Or the cold water valve is plugged. If you can get to the valves, use a meter to check the solenoid OR the power to the solenoid. That will tell you if it is bad. If you dont have a meter, switch the wires from one solenoid to the other and see if it fills

Experiencing extreme vibration and noise with my LG WM2101H...sounds like a rocket is taking off everytime i wash something...it's on a pedestal, overflow pan and is located on the second floor...no...


This is actually pretty normal for newer LG front loaders. They've done a lot of work to isolate the vibration and noise from the spin cycle, but the higher RPM's have countered those improvements. Unless the manufacturer/technician can determine that something is actually wrong, you're probably going to need to install an anti-vibration pad under the washer pedistal to absorb most of the noise. It is very likely that the subfloor is actually amplifying the vibration into the "rocket" noise that you are hearing. Try installing Silent Feet anti-vibration pads or similar to prevent this amplification of the noise and vibration.

I have a zanussi washer/dryer but lately its making so much noise !! its driving me nuts please tell me what it could be ?? thanks


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. If your washer is a front load washer then check these things if it is making noise--
Bellows
The bellows is a rubber sleeve that seals the suspended outer tub to the stationary cabinet front at the tub opening. Its purpose is to provide a water tight opening into the tub that can be sealed by the cabinet door, yet allow flexibility for the oscillation of the tub during the wash and spin cycles.
Outer Tub Assembly
The outer tub assembly is supported by two suspension springs and stabilized by two air shock assemblies. A cement counter weight is mounted to the front of the outer tub by screws. A counterweight is molded into the rear half of the outer tub. These counterweights prevent excessive oscillation of the entire suspended assembly during an unbalanced spin cycle.
Spin Basket Assembly
The spin basket is constructed of stainless steel. The circumference of the basket is perforated to allow water to flow through it as it revolves. A heavy steel shaft is pressed into the spin basket support which is then bolted to the basket. The spin basket assembly is entirely supported by two ball bearings pressed into the rear of the outer tub. A large drive pulley is mounted to the free end of the shaft that extends through the rear of the outer tub. There are three plastic vanes mounted to the spin basket to aid in the washing action during the wash cycle. The rotation of the spin basket provides both the washing action during the wash cycle, and water extraction during the spin cycle.


High pitch "jet engine" noise--A certain amount of motor whine is normal during the spin cycle.


Rattling and clanking noise--
• Foreign objects such as coins or safety pins may be in drum or pump. Stop washer and check drum. If noise continues after washer is restarted, objects may be in pump.
• Belt buckles and metal fasteners are hitting wash drum. To prevent unnecessary noise and damage to drum, fasten fasteners and turn items inside out.

Squealing sound or hot rubber odor-- Washer is overloaded. Do not overload washer. Stop washer and reduce load.

Thumping sound— Heavy wash loads may produce a thumping sound. This is usually normal. If sound continues, washer is probably out of balance. Stop washer and redistribute wash load.

Vibrating noise--
• Washer is not resting firmly on floor. Move washer so it rests firmly on floor. Adjust leveling legs. NOTE: Some shaking of the washer is normal without moving across the floor. See INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for details.
• Shipping bolts and foam blocks have not been removed during installation. See INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for removing shipping bolts and foam blocks.
• Wash load unevenly distributed in drum. Stop washer and rearrange wash load.

I have a maytag washier and it is working but it makes a lot of noise -it sounds like jam Model number is MAV2755AWW Serial number is 27422854JT


Your Maytag washer may vibrate or make some noise during normal operation. If vibration and noise are excessive, however, you'll need to troubleshoot the problem. The two main reasons for such an issue are overloading and nonlevel installation. Overloading can be corrected by putting less clothing into the washer before you run a cycle. It can be corrected mid-cycle by removing clothing articles from the washer mid-cycle. It's also very important that you make sure that your washer is located on a firm, completely level surface. Otherwise it may create severe vibration and noise, possibly even enough to damage the machine or nearby items.

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.

Buzzing noise! when the


sounds like you have a problem with the water solenoids (the electronic controlled water valves) the buzzing is an indication that it is trying to open or close and unable to do so. an electric current creates a magnetic field pulling a spring loaded valve sealed inside a tube allowing water to pass. it starts buzzing when it can't pull the valve all the way and just vibrates.

FAULT CODE


AI got here after googling the same problem.
There are many reports of this "dHE" error - all with BRAND NEW MACHINES !

I rang LG in Sydney, Australia today and amazingly the girl on the phone said there are no known issues with this dryer
(In Australia the combo dryer is known as WD14700RD ) - 7kg washer / 4kg dryer.
Mine has same problem. Whenever the dryer is selected in the program, it stops after the wash phase and flashed dHE (or dHe, can't remember) and thats as far as it gets.

Its a tech, call out tomorrow to try & fix it.
Very poor LG, these are brand new machines, many reports of this problem from googling it but LG have no knowledge a problem.

This may end up being a recall or at the very least, some public announcement of this dHe problem with this washer.
New buyers beware ... It is a fault with brand new machines.
