Question about LG Washing Machines
Hi ,my LG washing machine was working well for 20 months.Only few days back it got stuck at the spin point.How to solve this problem??..
Probably faulty switch knob, need to replace the switch or else you might burn out your motor if it shorts out.

I had same problem, the bowl is supported by (2) large springs from the top & two telescoping shock absorbers underneath.
I inverted the machine, found a large hollow retaining plastic bolt had falled out of the shock absorber,causing the bowl to be out of balance & the drive belt to be missaligned.
I reinstated the plastic retaining pin/bolt then tried the machine again.
Now the damn thing refuses to wash or spin.
I'm not happy.

You are right!
Bearings have to be replaced. Replace with the same type and design. All the bearings connected to the washer center shaft has to be replaced at the same time with new set.
Replace the water seals also connected to this. Check the shaft where the bearing sits, for any abrasions or metal damage.
Check the bearing housing also. While carrying out these repairs check the drive belt also. If needed replace it.
If you are happy with the machine outer body and other aspects repair it and re-use it.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the quick reply Ambari, that's exactly what I wanted to know. Atleast I'll some idea if the repair bloke is pulling a swifty. Cheers"
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.

Your pump/filter is plugged. (E4) There
is a round door on the lower front of the washer. There is a small hole near
the door. Put a small screwdriver blade in the hole, push in just a little, and
you can rotate the door clockwise, the door will come out and you can get to
the problem. When the water is drained
in machine the door is open able.
Immediately facing you is a black connector, about 4 inches (10cm) in diameter. When you unscrew this, all the water left in the washer will spill out onto the floor. Use a plastic bag to catch this or a small pan.(later models have a drain hose?) The black connector unscrews counterclockwise, and takes quite a few turns. Once you have it out, you'll find the source of your clog. Remove it, clean out, screw the black connector back in. You can check with rinse, if you want to make sure there are no leaks. Put the door back on and rotate. I will try to come back to you re. the wash, wash.
Pl rate me 'very helpful' for the free help, thanks!
