Question about Washing Machines
If this noise only occurs when the water is entering during the fill stage(the very first part after initiating the machine. And when the first spin cycle has completed and begins to refill for a second rinse. Then it would be worn out inlet valves or the electronics are playing up. To check which one it is put a multi meter across the terminals of the inlet valve and measure the resistance. A Value between 800 - 1200 ohms means the valve is working and the electronics become suspect. Another method for diagnosing this problem is detailed in this PDF http://moustachedor.free.fr/lg/LG-1259.pdf Go down to the QC test section and test Each system until you discover the noise. If the noise does not become evident please reply. I suggest always have an experienced professional do all work on and in appliances This is not a recommendation mearly an informative documentation

Testimonial: "Thank you for the quick response Matt. I have my husband looking into the inlet valves. Just to be clear, it makes the noise only when water is entering the tub after the washer has already filled and water is spraying down from inside the washer. There is no noise when the water is entering the washing machine itself and filling with water. Again thank you so much for your help. I will let you know if you solved our problem, I'm hoping so!!"

If you begin dissassembly from the tub down, you wil come to the transmission with the spindle sticking out of it. If you undo the bendable tabs all around the transmission it comes apart in two halves. Careful, its full of oil. The spindle has a plastic gear bolted to the bottom of it. It meshes with other gears in the tranny. It has sheered teath and is making the noise.

If I understand correctly, the washer made a sound in the spin cycle but didn't actually spin the clothes dry?
If so you may have something in the pump that is not allowing it to pump out. Disassemble the pump and make sure it is clear of any debris.

It doesn't spin
If your washer won't spin, check these:
It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

hi, i would suggest the timer/programmer is faultyas it is ok on the other cycles, the noises you have described may have caused some damage,

It could be that the springs have become lazy (stretched) and not supporting the spinning weight as good as they once did or as happened to me one of the shock absorbers at the base of the unit has come adrift from its securing point. Replacement parts are easily available but you will need someone strong to fit them with all that new tension.
