Lg f1443kd6 won't spin after being moved without transit bolts

Just moved and moved our washer, the LG F1443KD6 without the transit bolts in place, when tried on any cycle the machine will wash , but as soon s it gets to spin cycle it sounds like its powering up to spin, wobbles the drum , then just , cuts out , leaving the cycle stuck and just going round in the drum , and the count down timer stuck on the same amount of minutes, with wet washing in limbo ... whatever cycle the machine is put on it won't seem to be able to continue to the end cause it gets stuck at the spin , please can you advise, has being moved without the bolts damaged the drum balance ? do you think this can be solved Fairly easily

SOURCE: washing machine problem

That means that there is either a problem with the belt, or with the drum bearings.

The machine should be inspected by a technician.

If you want to get repairs for your appliance you can call the number listed on the owner manual.

SOURCE: drum does not spin

We have an LG TROMM with the same problem, 3 years old as well. We bought the extended warranty (Huge waste of $$$$).  So far they have determined it is not the motor or either of the control boards.  We think it might be a relay switch or possibly the brake.  Good luck with yours, we just went out and bought a new washer.

SOURCE: maytag washing machine gets out of balance

Maytag uses an auto balancing mechanism, based on the rear legs. These legs should move freely. Lay the machine on its side, and try to move the rear legs. If they won't move and appear rusty, then spray penetrating oil on both legs and move them until they move freely.

Pull the bottom panel off (if don't have access to the drain pump) and open the pump. I'll bet it's clogged.
Washers won't spin if they can't get all the water out...hope this helps.

Drum doesn spin


If this product is new, you will need to take out the carriage bolts located in the back of the machine.

Carriage bolts are meant for the shipping process to prevent the drum from moving while in transit. Most manufacturers use between 2-4.

Check your product manual for details on the removal of the carriage bolts

I bought a second hand LG washing machine - actually looking brand new. But when its on the spinning cycle, its spinning out the door? What might be the problem. LG 7.2kg WD-10160FU


Check that the "transit bolts" are not holding the tub to the body. They are there to stop the bowl from bouncing around during transport.. Located at rear.... To check, see if you can feel easy movement between bowl and cabinet..If the bowl movement is restricted, unscrew the 'bolts'...Good luck....Nomess

LG front loading washer: recently moved to a new house and laundry room is on the 2nd floor. Re-installed the shipping bolts in the back of the washer that secures the drum prior to moving the washer. But...


Make sure machine is level and all four leveling legs are solidly touching floor at the same time. Make sure leveling leg locking nuts are screwed up to lock legs in place. Check floor for firmness. (try bouncing up and down in front of washer to see if the floor has excessive give.) You may need to re-inforce floor. Wash larger loads. On bulky items, use a lower spin speed. You can re-spin at a higher speed after cycle is complete if you want them spun out better. (some models have a pump and spin only setting, on others, just turn on the power and then only touch the spin speed button to select a 14 minute pump and spin only cycle, then touch the start button.) The only other thing is that the new LG washers use a balance ring now, which makes the machine perform much smoother. (I know because I gave my old LG to my son and replaced it with the newer model, which now runs much quieter, in the exact same location as the old one.)

Lost or not retained shipping bolts


Just looked at mine (we had to order them before the military would move ours). They are two different sizes, have a long plastic washer (lengthwise), and are - believe it or not - like a lag bolt on the end! A hybrid mess meant to force us to order them, if you ask me. Not sure you should try rigging it, best if you order them, you'll see what I mean when you get them. Sorry, we were in the same boat too. Wish I never bought this LG, but that's for another post.

Reducing the noise when the washing machine is on spin cycle


Nothing is wrong w/ the unit. It must be solid on the floor with no movement in the feet relative to the flooring or it will rock when spinning. Floor is simply not solid enough. Use slower spin speed to alleviate issue or relocate it. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.
