Question about Washing Machines
Why does it bercomes noist and shakes and moves.LG Washing machine front loader WD-8013F
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.

Hi all you poor owners of this heap of junk, i have one too with the same problems, the shaking and moving around the bathroom was stopped by welding a 1/2 inch long piece of 1 &1/2 inch dia pipe to a 2 inch square flat plate of steel then putting double sided sticky tape beetween the plate and the floor
where you want the front rubber legs to sit, this stops it from running around the floor but it still needs to adjusted to have the
same on the front two legs to stop the shaking.by leaning the machine back a bit also helps to stop it leaking so bad while filling, it is only from the condersation from the hot water going in and the poor design of the soap drawer not allowing the water to run back into the washer which can be fixed by cutting the lip off
the bottom wher the drawer slides in then running a bead of silcone in the crack between the front cover and the inside piece
then another one on the front edge to run the water back into the washer. hpoe this helps. bryan.
