LG WF1801TP no spin + noise

Hi, I may have 2 unrelated problems or just one: 1) Washmachine started to be come noisey. I believe is the draining pump. 2) Washmachine agitates but will not spin. I hear a vibrating noise when it is in spin cycle (draining pump?). I do not see the belt spinning when the machine is in spin mode. I do not receive errors saying the lid is open (not being able to find a lid switch is really bugging me, trust me I am a little handy). Wash, drain, fill: all seem to be working. Does anyone know of an online service manual or have a solution that does not require special tools (tell me about special tool repairs too). thanks, Stuntman

Re: LG WF1801TP no spin + noise

I've had a similar problem on a few occasions with this model of washing machine. The first time I had a repairman come out and he found a dime in this little black box which connects to the drain hose at the bottom of the machine. I watched him fix it the first time and have had to do it a few times after myself. Both times it was a dime that had slipped through and caused an enormous racket when the machine tried to go into spin mode.

Re: LG WF1801TP no spin + noise

I have the same problem with my LG top loading washer. I removed the belt and let it spin again, the motor worked well . So i figure that the problem must be mechanical, maybe the leaver that is suppose to engage the tub for spinning is not engaging. If I had a manual maybe i could fix it , but for now I know where the problem is and have to check with service tech.

LG WM2101H won't dry until many cycles

Won't dry? I guess you mean spin enough water out? Depending on age, warranty, It sounds like a worn or bad drive belt or possibly a problem with the discharge pump not working properly.

My LG Wahining machine is making a rattling noise and will not spin or drain.

For the washer to spin, it must first drain the water out of the tub. Since you are hearing a rattling noise, and your washer will not drain, most likely the problem is the drain motor itself. The impeller wears out on the shaft, and start to wobble, and make a vibrating/rattling noise.

Top load washer about 8 years old- Problem 1 = during the finial rinse/spin the tub will not fulling drain and leaves clothes very wet...had a service call replaced the pump, however stills does not drain...

most likely its the electronic board, easy to change. if you can use a second hand one out of a known working machine- see how that goes- it will probably cure the noise problem

F21 error on kenmore he2plus washmachine. Door locks. Due to no spinning and water remaining in the machine? I run the rinse/drain&spin program (15 minutes) several times. it stays at 15min remaining...

"F21" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

LG WF-17014PP will not rinse or spin

check the pump, there is probably a small piece of cloth in there like a sock. This happens all the time. When the motor cant turn the other direction, the locking mechanism to the gears wont engage to do the spin cycle. Turn the wsher on its side, the pump should be easy to remove, they are fasten by two long clips. get back with me if this solves the problem

One of 2 things may be causing the loud noise.  Either the rear bearing on the drum has failed and will need to be replaced (very expensive) or the drain pump has a bearing problem and is making a very loud noise when it is draining (not too expensive).  Either way, you will need a qualified LG technician to diagnose and repair the problem.
