Could be the main bearing.

I believe.... that there is a spider like clasp that goes around the rear of the drum. This has a rod which comes out the back of the spider and is inserted into the main bearing. This bearing is like a circle of metal so that the rod slides into it and can spin.

If the machine is not spinning balanced properly then this rod/spider or bearing may be broken/worn. My repair man told me it would cost 120$ and 2-3 hours work. I'm going to look at it myself and see how hard it is to replace the bearing (which he said needs to be very accurately in centre.).. .

LG Tromm Steam Washer Cycle is complete and the stuff is so wet that they have to wrung by hand to even put they on a clothes line. Can washer be put on spin only? How?


call a technician as it indicates that the cycle from rinse, spin is not progressing to spin only
rinse,spin is a low speed spin to facilitate the rinse and to balance out the clothes ready for the fast speed spin cycle

Lg wd8074fhb will not rotate drum on was or rinse


LE=Load Error CE=Cycle Error
Unplug at socket for two hours will reset the Error Sensors. The sensors are there to prevent overheating of the motor and the possible risk of a fire.
Load Error is linked with too much weight in the drum. Cycle Error is limked with an uneven load.
If it happens again, unplug for two hours to reset the Error Sensors.
Hope this helps.

Washing machine shuts off before cycle is finished now it will not last one min. on before it shuts off...what to do?


We have a front-loading LG washer. Today, I took a look at it when it was beginning the spin cycle because it sounded a bit different. I noticed that it was beginning to spin and would stop because [I believe] it was detecting a strong off-balance. It would then try to spin in the opposite direction and the same happened. After two more attempts, it automatically shut off with no warning nor error. We set the washer to wash and spin again and I began to work on balancing it. After adjusting the feet and waiting for the spin cycle again, it continued successfully because of the reduced off-balance. I'm not sure if there are other reasons that would cause the washer to turn off. This is the only one I have come across so far.

Spin cycle - washer is shaking and jumping


Try to relevel the unit. Another suggestion is use the cycle for delicates (the spin cycle is slower). If it is still out of balance and shaking one of the dampers may have broke

LG Washing Machine stops spinning in mid cycle


IE:

• Water supply is not adequate in
area.
• Water supply taps are not
completely open.
• Water inlet hose is bent.
• The filter of the inlet hose clogged.

Solution:
Check another tap in the house.
Fully open tap.
Straighten hose.
Check the filter of the inlet hose.

UE:
• Load is too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The appliance has an imbalance
detection and correction system. If
individual heavy articles are loaded
(bath mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, after several
attempts to restart the spin cycle the
machine will stop and the error code
will be displayed.

Solution:
Add 1 or 2 similar items to help
balance the load.
Rearrange load to allow proper
spinning.

Balancing


This type of thing should not be required. Front load washing machines (well, topload too i guess) will balance themselves out for the spin cycle unless the machine is grossly overloaded.

Good luck.
