Question about LG WM2487HWMA Front Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

No one seems to be able to answer this question

There is a styrofoam ring that goes around the rim opening on the underside of my washer. is this part of the ''packing material'' or is it supposed to stay on. LG says remove. Installer says it does not get removed. Installation instructions only mention styrofoam packing material that goes up into the space that is to be removed. Is this ring part of that? Still having vibration problems and wonder if this is part of the problem.

I would guess that it would have to be removed as it would prevent the barrel moving freely and would be causing it to vibrate the machine.

Is there any way to clean INSIDE the toilet bowl rim? I don't mean under it, I mean inside, where mold seems to have formed.

the underneath of the rim is not completly open but a series of holes to direct the water flow
the best way to clean in that area would be to put some quality cleaner ( bleach or such like ) in the cistern water then flush the toilet
do it a couple of times and see if it improves the situation
talk with an accredited plumber as the problem may be in the water supply allowing the mould to grow
it takes water and moisture for the growth of mould so it may be a leaking stop washer in the cistern that is the real culprit
as after a flush that area of the bowl dries out and mould will not start

Red Ring Of death Fix (X-BOX 360)

I have found that there are several ways to fix RROD (red ring of death). When i repair this problem i have found that placing #8 washers on the underside of the mainboard, before reinstalling the x clamps works very well. It seems to only last a few months before RROD appears again. So I have started to install #8 washers to the underside and in between the heatsink (aluminum grate placed on top of Processor to disipate heat) and GPU (located under shorter of the 2 heat sinks), with a fair amount of heatsink paste Seems to last longer. It makes installing the x-clamps very difficult. So even if the x-clamps do not snap on keep them lined up and screw them tightly into the metal shell the mainboard is placed into. I hope this helps a few people with this problem and Good Luck. Direct quetions and concerns to

How to install the shipping bolt for maytag lat2500 washer?

Hello Phyllis,

The way Maytag did that was by a plastic ring that fit in the lid rim it was deep enough that it would fit inside the top rim of the outer tub cover locking the tub into place. If in your area their is a small independent shop that sells and services Maytag appliances they may have a extra one lying around in the back,if not a peice of styrofoam shaped to fit under the lid and into the tub it would lock the tub into place for shipment.

Washer leaks during spin cycle. my daughter pulled the drum out of alignment temporarily while pulling a comforter out of the washer. the door seal is intact although there is a wire ring that came out...

The spring goes around the door seal it needs to be stretched around the small lip that holds the seal in place. The spring is where you grab it with needle nose pliers. the spring goes on the bottom. You will see where the rubber seal has a wider spot this is where the spring should be right at the 6 o'clock position. This is a little tricky to do the first time trying but keep at it you will get it.

During the spin cycle my new admiral washing machine shakes and walks away basically, any suggestions?

Mean machine is it not? Basically if you tip this washer over to move it into position without putting in that styrofoam packing block in the tub then the snubber ring will shift out of position. So you must reposition it and that is no easy task. The washer must also be perfectly level and if it was on a rubber pad and cement floor would be better. Grab the insides of the tub and raise it up slightly, bump the base around to center the snubber ring. It might take more than one person.

Hello. W/D here.

It's actually pretty easy to get it back on when you know the trick.

Since it has leaked on you, you may want to remove the seal off of the rim closest to the door and clean the rim and the sealing surface. The seal has a molded lip that fits on to a raised formed rim, and it gets pressed on snugly before the ring and spring are added. You can seat the seal by pressing on it all the way around with the palms of your hands.
To install the ring:
Start the ring 180 degrees from the spring, placing it in the groove behind the seal face. (You want to make sure that the seal is pressed back into place first). Work the ring on around the seal, until you get to mostly just the spring remaining. Now lever the spring over the lip and into the groove, using a small screwdriver, being careful not to damage the seal with the screwdriver.

Best regards, --W/D--

Water is leaking from the door

That ring goes around the front door boot. There is a black rubber seal that goes around the entire basket and door. That ring seals it. There is a small lip at the edge of the seal that the ring sits on. What you will want to do is put the ring around the seal and use needle nose pliers to stretch the spring attaching it to the other end. It is a pain to get it attached. After you attach it you will want to make sure you have a proper seal around it so feel around it making sure it is in that lip. If you have any other questions let me know and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad I could help you out.
