Clunking banging noise


It may be something stuck in the drum, ie a bra wire, which would have extra weight on it whilst the clothes are wet. If this is the case, it will need looking at sooner, rather than later, as it will just be causing further internal damage

It sounds like the spider arm supports in your washer has failed. The spider arms hold the stainless steel wash drum to the axle. You need to stop using the machine immediately since the wash drum is flopping around the plastic tub. It is an expensive fix. The replacement drum/spider can cost over $300 with shipping. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace. Sorry.

Clunking noise


The clunking noise may be a broken weld on the drum.  Every time it turns and passes through the guide wheel supports, it makes a thunk thunk noise.  You will need to have a qualified LG technician diagnose the problem correctly but that's what it sounds like.
