If tub is banging around it could be dampers, but if it's a scrapping sound then something is caught in the inner tub and at hi speed it touches the outer tub.

SOURCE: Problem with LG WD-8023FB washing machine

Hello sir,

  1. If a washing machine is rumbling, and very **isy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  2. A**ther drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is **t always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.
  3. Loud **ises when turning the drum by hand can also be caused if the drum itself splits, or the spider at the back of the drum has come away from the drum, is corroded or even broken. This would **rmally be a loud **ise on each revolution of the drum whereas the **ise when drum bearings have gone is constant all the time the drum is turning. Lifting the drum checking for excessive play can often reveal a broken or loose drum spider which sometimes only occurs at certain points round the drum (the spider has three arms and is bolted to the drum at three points)
  4. Coins or other obstructions trapped inside the tub under the drum can make horrendous **ises as they get tossed about on spin. They often don't make the **ise unless laundry is in though. Look out for obvious dints and creases in the drum itself as evidence of a coin or similar stuck inside although be aware that it only shows there's been an obstruction in at some point and the coin could have fallen into the sump hose or filter and **t actually be the cause of the **ise at this time
  5. Other causes of a **isy washing machine are coins and other obstructions inside the water pump. This will cause **ise when the washing machine is emptying the water. Coins or other obstructions can get trapped between the outer tub and the inner drum. This would produce a lot of **ise on spin as the coins get tossed around inside. Often, spinning the drum by hand will **t reproduce the **ise in the case of coins because the coins drop to the bottom of the tub and lay flat when the washing machine isn't spinning
  6. A light scraping or ratchity **ise when the drum is turned by hand is commonly a bra wire trapped between the tub and drum. They can often be removed from underneath with the sump hose taken off. It's always worth checking that the wire isn't poking through one of the holes in the drum which can be pulled back out from inside the door. It's rare, but I've retrieved 3 or 4 this way over the years.
  7. A high pitched squealing or harsh **ise can be motor bearing wear. This can also be checked for by taking the belt off and running the motor alone.
  8. A k**cking **ise can be a loose tub weight. This would **rmally be worse with heavy loads and would **t be present on spin with ** washing in. This is because the k**cking **ise is caused when the tub (or outer drum) shakes about on spin. Without washing inside the drum the tub doesn't move. A**ther symptom of a loose tub weight is grey concrete dust under the washing machine. Warning: These days most washing machines have plastic tubs and over tightening a tub weight bolt can easily shear the bracket resulting in a new tub being required. Try loctite. Often, once a tub weight has come loose the plastic tub is damaged anyway especially if it isn't caught early e**ugh
  9. Sometimes a badly worn drive belt can cause a surprising amount of **ise. I've even come across some where i was convinced the drum bearings were gone until I took off the belt and spun the drum by hand to find ** **ise.

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.

SOURCE: my washtub makes a lot of noise in the spin cycle

there are shocks inside the machine that damper the vibration, one or more has failed, they can be replaced if you are a good do it your self er, if u have to pay to fix it replace not worth the cost of repair. the repair requires taking off all the panels to access the inside. and check cost of dampers and compare to cost versus replacement

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.

Hi my LG 7.5 kg (10165fu)front loader washer has just stopped functioning. It shows on screen a big "CL".What do i do? Pls help. Griffiths


CL means that your washing machine's CHILD LOCK is ON. You can find two buttons Temp and Options in the panel. Turn ON the machine, press these two buttons together for 3 seconds and thats it. It might have a little kids face above a lock key, inbetween the wash and rinse buttons, hold these for 3/5 seconds and it should work

LG WM3987HW Washer Spining very wild


I've just uploaded a service manual.

relevant info pasted below: --

Regulate a specific spin speed that generates excessive vibration and noise as follows:
1) Put an unbalance part (rubber) inside of the drum.
(this is a special weight that service people use. It clips into the drum. If you don't have it, throw in about 4 to 6lbs of damp laundry.)

2) Start the QC test mode (Refer to section 7-2).
7-2 says turn the washer off, then press 'spin speed' and 'soil level' at the exact same time. Then, while holding both buttons, press power to start "QC test mode"

3) Press Delay Wash button, then ' tst ' is displayed on lcd
4) Press the Spin Speed button repeatedly to select Extra High.
5) Press the Quick Cycle button, the spin speed is displayed.
6) Press the Start/Pause button.
7) Press the Beeper button repeatedly to set spin speed (600, 800, 1000, 1200 rpm) and check if there is vibration
and noise.
8) If there is no vibration and noise, increase the spin speed by pressing Beeper button.
9) If there is vibration and noise, rotate the Cycle selector knob clockwise to reduce the Spin Speed (reduce by 50
and 100 rpm). In case of 600 rpm, it can not reduce the spin speed.
10) If vibration and noise are reduced, press the Quick Cycle button to store (2 beep sounds).
* If you want to return to factory default spin speed setting, repeat above steps except step 9)

My lg washer shake s alot when it is spining and makes a loud noise please can you help


The washer needs to sit on a solid foundation for this to work. When the washer is spinning a load of clothes, push the corner of the washer till the noise or vibration quiets down. When it does quiet down, adjust the leg below to reduce the noise.
Good luck

During spin, machine moves!


Hi,

Did you remove the transport rods from the back of the unit? this will cause the unit to jump around a lot when it goes into the spin cycle. Also make sure the feet are all level and the unit doesn't rock from side to side.
