Question about LG WM2688HWM TROMM SteamWasher

Load banging when water temperature is being set

I bought my washing machine on Aug 11, 2007. When the water temperature is being set, with short bursts of water, we hear 10 loud bangs up through the pipes to the kitchen above. Then the machine is quiet and runs fine. We have had the Sears guy and the LG guy come and they can do nothing. They say it has to do with the energy saver feature. But no one mentions it when then review the machine. Should I return our machine and try a different model or is there something that can be done.

Water solenoids / the switches that let the water into the machine are electrically controlled, so its either on or off, nothing in between so if your water pressure is set high then the recoil effect of the switch turning off suddenly can cause the pipe to make a banging noise try turning down the water pressure on the house supply to the machine (the tap on the wall) or secure the pipe to the wall tighter so it doesn't flex as much if the machine normally works fine then its not the machines fault hope i have helped, if so rate me please

Why does it take two hours to wash a load of clothes


We have a new machine and a couple of the settings take about that length of time. We have a setting that does a wash load in around 30 minutes and tend to use that. It is a lower temperature and a slightly slower spin speed (1100 instead of 1300).
I believe it is because modern machines only have a cold water fill and no hot so the water has to heat up to whatever the setting is.
Try a lower temperature and spin speed, or if your machine has an "eco" setting, give that a go.

What is the acuwash sensor


Washer temperature sensors and water level settings
The temperature of your washer's water varies with your laundry care needs. Standard washer models typically feature three temperature settings: Hot/Cold, Warm/Cold, and Cold/Cold—and higher-end models often offer as many as six or seven temperature settings. Temperature plays a key role in the effectiveness of your detergent—pairing the right detergent with the right setting for your fabrics and soil is important, as this will help reduce damage, prevent detergent residue, and provide the best wash across fabric types. For the best fabric care, look for washing machines with automatic temperature control (ATC). A sensor will control water temperature and ensure cold washes are above 60 degrees (F) to dissolve detergents, and warm washes do not exceed 93 degrees (F) to help prevent shrinking and bleeding.

The amount of water you use for each load also affects washer performance. Doing laundry is a bit like a science project. You need to make sure you are using the right volume of water, with the proper amount of detergent based on the dirt level of the laundry being cleaned. Too much of one component can result in a less-than-perfect outcome. Standard washing machines allow you to select water levels for different size loads, but some models offer more water-level options. Washers with automatic water levels use sensors to determine load size and adjust water level for best cleaning and rinsing performance. You will generally find these options in higher-priced top-loading washers. A benefit of front-loading washing machines is that most come with this automatic water-leveling feature.

Whirlpool® AccuWash™ temperature control sensor provides a temperature-controlled wash.
