MY LG washer is out of balance. I have been told there is a demo mode that can rebalance the washer drum. Do you know how to do this?

The demo mode does not do what you want it to do. Demo mode allows the retailer to demonstrate the wash tumbling without hooking the machine up to water and drain, and show the spin, and allows a servicer to test see those things, plus testing of the display board, water fill, and even the heater if your model has one. Demo mode will NOT "rebalance" the washer drum. Some models have a "Spinsense" setting, and newer models have a "Tru balance" ring, which does a very good job. (no, it is not a retro-fit type drum) Your only solution is to make sure your machine is on a solid floor, level, and all legs making firm contact with the floor. Load selection and load size have a limited effect on un-balanced situations, but The biggest factor here is having a SOLID FLOOR.

The digital timer on the machine will say 1 minute to go, but the machine will run on the spin cycle for 6 to 8 minutes before it finishes. Is there a part I can replace to correct this problem?


Your washer displays an estimate of time remaining in the current wash cycle. That estimate is based on the load finishing without any delays. Prior to going into a high speed spin, your washer "tests" the load balance by either rocking or slowing rotating.

If it senses and off balance condition, it will attempt to "rebalance" the load by itself and then retest, rebalance, etc. until it is satisfied that the load is as balanced as possible. Then it begins to spin. When your washer takes longer than is predicted in the display, it is because of this.

Happy washing...

BRand new installation of 1 year old machine we


hi,

I am a novice at front loaders but it sounds like it needs new suspension parts, namely springs, sounds like the machine had a hard life before you got it. since its used anyways it cant hurt to take the back off and see and study how it works and how the drums suspension works. you can try to find the springs at an appliance store. Im not sure if you can get springs directly from LG. LG's are a pretty good name brand, probably worth fixing..
good luck!

Excessive drum vibration


Yes, look into trading in the Kenmore for one of only two manufacturers that employ a dynamic balance system built into the washer drum. Samsung and LG both use this dynamic balance system that balances the load while it is in motion. They also use a vibration sensing system to modify the time and speed of the spin cycles to minimize any vibration that might still be present. LG has this available on only their upper level models while Samsung's VRT is available on most all models. I believe that both of these manufacturer's are available from Sears.
