LG wm1832cw shaking bad in spin after move

Hiya,
The movers moved our washer, an LG wm1832cw, but neglected to use the shipping bolts that were on top of the washer. It is now shaking pretty bad in the high speed spin cycle.

What do i do about it? Is there some standard method of fixing it that is fixable by a capable user?

Is the service manual available online?

How can we fix the vitiation, noise, and movement on a front loader that was just moved to another home?


These units spin at a high RPM. With just a few clothes, especially jeans and sweat items, the drum is off balance and therefore will have the above symptoms. These newer units weren't designed to run just a few items. It's a full load or nothing. It's an energy conservation thing.

I recently moved and the movers removed two bolts from the back of the machine...should I replace those bolts


No do not replace the shipping bolts. I assume you have a front loading washer. The tub is secured by bolts during transport. Then they have to be removed so that the washer will operate properly without damaging the machine.

Many machine manuals are available online. For example, LG washers manuals are available at their site and under more information for models sold by Home Depot (http://www.homedepot.com/Appliances-Laundry-Clothing-Care-Washers-Front-Load-Washers/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1xr5Zbv6h/h_d2/Navigation?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053&omni=c_Front%20Load%20Washers). The LG front loading washers use 4 bolts with retainers. If they are not removed, the machine will have severe vibration and noise. The vibration can damage the unit.

I hope this helps.

(if you have an top loading washer, shipping bolts are less common. If you provide the model of the washer, I'll see if it is one for which I know the shipping instructions.)

Recently moved and now my washer sounds like it is going to take off!


Hi.

If you hear an high pitched noise or rumble that becomes louder when spinning at speed, then you may have dislodged the drum bearing or broken the drum bearing spider.

The part is located at the back of the drum.

Lost or not retained shipping bolts


Just looked at mine (we had to order them before the military would move ours). They are two different sizes, have a long plastic washer (lengthwise), and are - believe it or not - like a lag bolt on the end! A hybrid mess meant to force us to order them, if you ask me. Not sure you should try rigging it, best if you order them, you'll see what I mean when you get them. Sorry, we were in the same boat too. Wish I never bought this LG, but that's for another post.

Washer is shaking violently when it is time for the spin cycle


Check to see if all shipping blocks and bolts were removed. Refer to installation and setup instructions for your model.

I once moved into an apartment furnished with washer and dryer. The washer had worn holes in the vinyl flooring and a neighbor said the previous tenant made her son sit on the washer to hold it down. I investigated and found the shipping bolts were still in place. The tub, which is supposed to be able to swing, was rigidly held in place, so the entire machine danced around the room!

Move


you can reuse the shhipping bolts but getting them back in is a royal pain in the but. if you have help you can have someone open the door to move the tub around so you can line up the shipping bolts to screw them back in. it help to take the top off the washer to help you see where your putting them.
