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.

The washer is making a very loud noice and i noticed slight smell of burning during cycle! The drum seems very unstable too! Could this be the drive belt? Is this fixable or am i looking at a new...


Sounds like the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from inside, if it feels rough, or it is noisy or rumbling, then the bearings habve fauiled.
Probably better to buy a new washer.

Final spinning cycle makes very loud noise.


sounds like you have the dreaded bad tub bearings. Does it sound like an aircraft taking off? Open the door and lift the drum and see if you feel any play.
I don't know your technical ability, but you can match up bearings and a seal and repair it ( frigidare will only sell you the complete drum with bearings) but its a big job as appliance work goes. You will have to decide how to proceed from there as far as fixing it or buying a new one.

Machine drum makes loud noice in the spin cycle. Makes the same sound that a top-loading machine makes when it goes out of balance. Help.


  • Hi,
  • Try these:
  1. Balance the load
  2. Level the machine
  3. Inspect the water pump for a blockage
  4. Inspect the coupling
  5. Inspect the transmission
  6. Adjust the drive belt tension
  7. Check the motor bearings
  8. Check the drum brakes
please rate my suggestion...

Front loader making loud noise with spin cycle


It may be something that was in the wash and fell thru the holes in the inner drum. Check all the plastic agitators and make sure they are all secure and an attach bolt has not backed out of one and rubbing the outer tub. It will wear a hole in it fast if it is.
Usually when the bearings go bad, it gets very loud on the spin cycle, like a loud roar and sometimes clothes will have rust or grease stains on them.
I just replaced my tub bearings on my Frigidare and spent about $60. They are all pretty much the same. On mine they only list the complete rear outer tub assembly with bearings, but you can knock the old bearings and seal out and match them up at a bearing supply house or you can buy online. Online seems much cheaper. If you buy bearings, make sure you get ones with a -2rs on the end of the part number. ex. 6308-2rs. They are sealed and hold up much better in water environment.
I would give it a try, the junk man doesn't care if it comes in pieces or one big piece.

There are a couple online articles that can probably help you. Do a google search for 'washer rear tub bearings"

Loud spin cycle with SAMSUNG WD J1255 loose bolt???


How old is this machine? Almost all the time this noise its the main bearing. You have a inner and outer drum, the outer drum is suspended on shocks and the inner drum which is only supported by the spindle going thru the bearing on the rear of the outer drum. I have seen many of these wear out. Also I have seen the main bolt on the drum pulley shear off.

During spin cycle started making loud noise now drum feels loose DURING SPIN CYCLE DRUM SOUNDS AS IF IT'S HITTING SIDE.. FEELS LOOSE WHEN I PUSH IT AROUND FRIGIDARE GLTF1040ASO


ckd your warranty papers sounds like rear drum support(spider) has broken will require new basket and rear drum half est cost 400-600 spider is not a separate part and rear bearing is probably damaged that too is not a separate part and require rear tub replacement
