WM won't spin after sleeve got caught in door

Last week a shirt sleeve was caught in between the door and the drum. eventually the seal gasket and the sleeve entangled and the whole load created a gigantic knot. after getting the laundry out and getting the gasket and the sleeve seperated i had to 'install' the gasket again and tighten it down with the wire (this was easy).

however, our washer won't spin anymore now.

i have a hard time believing that a technician has to come out (in our case for $ 85) just to diagnose it as this seems to be a common 'safety hazard' with front loading washing machines that something gets caught between door and gasket...

is there a safety feature like a switch or fuse that just needs to be reset or do you guys think that it blew the engine?

anyone with any ideas?

thanks...

I had this happen. The drive belt had come off. Just take off the bottom panel from the back and reattach the belt.

When washing and water is running water runs out through the front door


If the machine is working alright otherwise , then there is an alignment problem on the door or your seal gasket is worn out. Since this is a mechanical failure it must be inspeccted before we can confirm on the fault. If you find the gasket worn out or the sides cut along, then it needs a replacement. The same type of gasket is available from different sources, try the LG dealer or the appliances hardware shop. If there is any hinge problem on the door remove and adjust. The door must close and seal well. Hope you can sit in front of the door and look carefully to logically confirm and repair. Hope you get this right. Good day

Burn marks on clothing


The front felt drum seal may be bad. It is attached to the front panel, around the door.
Check and or replace the rear drum support it has worn down the ball and cup support. It will soon begin making a grinding/squealing noise.
When it wears and drops down the gap is greater at the front around the felt seal. Laundry gets caught in the gap and scorches.

WM won't spin after sleeve got caught in door


If the w/m washes and drains now but doesnt spin then almost certainly the spin side of the motor has gone faulty. Im assuming the jambing up of the clothes took place while spinning, it would only take a short while to become faulty if the drum wont turn. If so, a new motor is needed. If the drum tries to turn half heartedly then check the 16micro farad capacitor.

Wm1832cw door seal re-installation


If you haven't gotten a solution yet, I did this myself. It is pretty hard to remove the spring that is holding the gasket in place. Once you do that, just replace the gasket and reattach the ring w/spring.

Front Load Washer Seal


you will have to take off the front off washer to put it back correctly.

remove the top panel 3 screws in top rear
remove the bottom panel 3 screw in bottom front
remove the top led control panel 3 screw or more along front lip
if you disconnect any wiring mark it well .
now the front of washer can be removed with or without the door (your choice)
careful with the door lock wiring.
be sure to unplug the washer.
while you are in the innards its a good time to wipe around the drum any buildup of soap etc..
and to clean the filter trap in the bottom access tube below drum.

Dryer is leaving brown streaks on cotton clothes


To all victims of the brownish colored streak marks: I share your frustration!!! I have the same problem with my dryer which started when my dryer was only 3 or 4 years old - - totally unacceptable for an expensive top of the line dryer! A repair guy showed me how the brownish streak marks come from the felt liner which goes around the drum. Look inside your dryer for the beige or tan colored felt which sticks out around the circular drum. If you rub the felt with an old white t-shirt or paper towel, you will see the same brownish colored marks. My repairman recommended getting the felt replaced eventually, but until then, he gave me the following tips which really help avoid getting the streaks: For white or light colored clothes susceptible to the brownish streak marks: I dry these items as part of a very lightweight dryer load - with just a few other lightweight items. By doing a small lightweight load, clothing is less likely to get caught up & rub against the felt edges. For example, I dry 4 light colored men's dress shirts with 2 or 3 other lightweight shirts. OR for white or light colored athletic "dry fit" type athletic apparel, I dry 6 - 8 total lightweight shirts/shorts. If I throw my white Nike top or white pair of summer pants into the dryer with all my "whites", they will be doomed to getting brownish streaks due to the heavy load pushing them against the darned felt liner! Whenever possible, I wash susceptible items on permanent press to avoid wrinkling, then hang dry. Prior to putting these clothes in the dryer, I also "pre-clean" the felt with an old white cotton t-shirt by reaching into the dryer and rubbing along the felt edges until I'm not getting as much brownish color on the t-shirt rag. For a permanent fix, call a repairman or see the following do-it-yourself YouTube video on "Dryer Repair - Replacing the Lower Front Drum Felt Seal": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoYP_YsGP68 . I have a repair person coming today to fix 2 other appliances, so I'm finally getting my dryer fixed, and I will post an update soon.
