Your bearings and drum shaft seal are leaking. This is a common problem with front loader washers and it is very expensive to have repaired. If you are handy you can repair this yourself for far less. If you think you are but are not handy, do not attempt. Buy only Japanese made bearings and not Chinese because for the small price difference it just is not worth the chance. Do your research!!!!

Pump makes noise and water runs out of bottom of machine error ob


HI. You may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case, replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

A broken impeller will wobble inside the pump housing, causing loud noises during operation. This is a strong indicator of pump failure. This will, also, cause leakage as well. the integrity of the pump housing will be compromised, leading to this leakage.

Frigidaire tumble action frontload washer loud knocking noises


These are the stabilising blocks. They are there to stop the knocking and noise. You should be able to buy them. Try the manufacturer or go on Yahoo or Google search for wash machine spares. Hope this helps.

Washer is making a loud banging noise..


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

LG top loader slapping noise in wash cycle


Its not the usual problems found on Lg machines. sounds like you have possibly one or more coins being picked up underneath the pulsator. To check, remove pulsator with screwdriver and check .Very possibly you have a bra cup spring caught between the two drums which make an akward sound.

Lg wm1832cw front load washer


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.

Lg WM1812cw makes alot of noise when in spin cycles.


There are always bearings. This model uses a direct drive brushless DC motor so there are no belts and such. Without actually hearing the noise with no load, it's hard to say what may actually be wrong. Any time a motor makes an abnormal noise, you can expect it won't last too much longer. I have the same model so now I'm worried.
