Question about LG WM-1832C Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Rubber lining all 'twisted'? on front loading LG washer -- the washer was moved down the stairs by someone -- now the rubber appears all twisted and not lying flat like it was before. Do I need to remove the tub and 'reattach' it?

    ok, reattaching a spring definitely helped with the rubber "twisting", however, it leaks out the bottom of the door. It seem to need tightening somewhere? If I push on the bottom left side of the door (over the 'hinge') it slows/stops the leak....how to tighten?

Sounds like the suspension spring or springs have become detached, or the suspension legs have become dislodged.
Redmove the top to check for detached spring, if o/k, then check underneath the washer, and see if the suspensions are o/k.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.,

My washer is off balance during the spin cycle it jumps, and moves around


With the washer empty, tilt it front a few inches and drop it back down. This will re-level the legs. If it still jumps around, replace the drum snubber, inside the front of the machine. It's a rubber pad that keeps the drum from moving around too much. Snubbers dry out with age.

I have a LG WM0532HW. What are the drum bolt sizes thr.& length


Hello Jeff,

Unfortunately, these are specially made bolts that have threads only on the first section of the bolt, so they can secure the wash drum and not interfere with anything else. You also need the special sleeves for the bolts. I would not try to use standard bolts from a hardware store, as they could damage the wash drum if you overtightened them or they were too long. LG, and most washer manufacturers, don't publish the size, thread count and length of their transport (shipping) bolts, hence the reason they advise to keep them for future use.

So if you're only moving the washer down a set of stairs, you should be fine if you take it easy and either hand carry it with two (2) people, or use an appliance truck to move it down the stairs.

If, however, you're looking to move the washer any distance via truck, etc., you'll want the shipping transport bolts and sleeves to keep the drum and suspension system from getting damaged.

You're best bet is to get in touch with LG customer support and obtain a set of the transport bolts. You can reach them by callling them from 8AM to 8 PM toll free at 1-877 714-7486 and follow the prompts to reach customer support.

Here's a link to the owner's manual for your washer, just in case you've misplaced yours.

LG Front Load Washer Problem


The washer is not leveled correctly.  You will need to adjust the front feet to level the machine.  Run a load of clothes in the washer.  When it gets to the spin mode, check the level of the machine by pushing the front left corner and the front right corner.  If the noise quiets down on either corner of the machine, adjust the legs on that side.
