Uneven Flopping Noise

This dryer is 1.5 years old and lately has started to have an uneven flopping noise when the tup spins. The dryer is level. When we were looking into the tub, we noticed that it was separating at one of the seems (like the spot weld had came undone). Anyway, just checking to see if there are any solutions.

    We have the same problem - uneven flopping, or thunking, noise when the dryer is operating. Our dryer is just over 1 year old. Any advice for solving this problem is greatly appreciated.

    I am experiencing the same problem stated above. My dryer is also 1.5 years old. It definitely appears that the spot weld has come undone on one end. I spoke with LG customer service and the best they did was give me the name of local repair shops. If your dryer is not more then 3 months out of warranty it might be possible to have LG fix it (at least that is what the customer service rep implied). Good luck.

    Same here - dryer is 1 1/2 years old, but bought it at Best Buy with an extended warranty. Will check back in after he comes in on Friday and tells me what the problem is!

After 6 weeks of complaining the dryer was finally repaired. They replaced the drum and roller kit. LG did extend my warranty. I live in rural AL and all the service locations I called refused to do warranty work for LG. Apparently they don't pay their bills in a timely manner. I'll never purchase another LG appliance. Good luck to you all..

The drum has a broken weld and needs to be replaced.  Call LG to grant a one time extended warranty to address this issue.  This is a defect problem with their drums.

Why is my tumble dryer making a loud banging noise when on its a white knight model CL3A


Most of the time a tumble dryer will work like a dream but, as with all appliances, occasionally there will be technical problems.
If your tumble dryer is making a banging, whining (or other strange noise) it's best to diagnose and sort out the problem. It could be the result of a number of things, but what you certainly don't want to do is ignore it.
Here are the most common reasons for your tumble dryer making odd noises.
Coins and keys
One of the most common reasons for a banging, rattling or clanking is keys or coins left in pockets - so always check them before you put any clothes in the tumble dryer. More often than not you won't hear anything until the dryer cycle is in full spin.
Uneven surfaces
If the dryer is vibrating or shaking during spinning, check to make sure the dryer's sitting on a level surface. If it's fitted with height adjusters on the front legs, adjust them accordingly to ensure the machine is level as this will often reduce or eliminate the banging sound.
Drum bearings
If the tumble dryer is noisy when its turning and the whole appliance is shaking and rumbling, it could be indicative of a problem with the drum bearings, which help the wheels turn freely and easily.
The drum
If the banging noise is continuous when the drum is turning then it might be problem with the drum itself. If the noise is a metallic one, it could be the result of the drum scraping on something inside the machine. You could always check the drum visually for any marks or dents.
Motor bearings
If the tumble dryer is emitting a high-pitched screaming or whining noise it could be a sign that the motor bearings are wearing out.
Tension pulley wheels
If there's a squeaking noise coming from the dryer it could be the result of wear on the tension pulley wheels. This occurs more frequently on older models...or try this link..

Six-year-old Frigidaire stackable front-loading washing machine turns on, fills up with water, but makes a loud noise during the spin cycle?


If it is a banging or uneven sound, your tub and unit is not balanced any further. The tub could be off of the pulley/bearing supports and needs professional attention.

Washplate problem Kenmore Elite Calypso washer


Hello genny2626
Welcome,

You said,your 6 year old Kenmore elite top loader's wash plate doesn't seem to go through its proper motions. When the lid is closed and the washer has filled and the agitating cycle begins, you can hear a vibrating noise as if the plate is trying to move on the gentle cycle, but when the lid is opened, nothing has moved at all. The drain and spin work fine, and the machine goes through an entire cycle without error messages, but the clothes aren't clean. You said, you have heard a lot of horror stories of how expensive these washers are to repair, so would like an idea of what's wrong beforehand.

Here are a list of common vibration noises


Noisy, vibrating, off-balance

 Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed
against the corners?
The washer must be level. The front and rear feet must be in
firm contact with the floor. Check that the locknuts are
tightened. See “Level the Washer.”
 Is the floor flexing, sagging or not level?
Flooring that flexes or is uneven can contribute to noise and
vibration of the washer. A ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) piece of plywood under
the washer will reduce the sounds. See “Location
Requirements.”
 Is the load balanced?
Evenly distribute the load in the washer basket and make
sure the height of the load does not exceed the top row of
basket holes. See “Starting Your Washer.”
 Do you hear clicking or other noises when the cycle
changes from washing to draining or spinning?
When the drive system shifts or the washer basket settles
between cycles you may hear noises that are different from
your previous washer. These are normal washer noises.
 Is the washer gurgling or humming?

Is the washer level? The wash load
should be balanced and not overloaded. The washer must be
level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts
tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the
Installation Instructions.
Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with
cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions.
• Are the gears engaging after the drain and before spin, or
is the upper part of agitator clicking during wash? These
are normal washer noises.

Let me know if any of these are the solution!

My Magtag Performa washer has been shaking in the spin cycle very violently lately. The floor has not changed, so I can't blame an uneven floor. I'm assuming the belt may need to be tighten or replaced. ...


first I would check your drain pump.. you may have something blocking the water flow... this will cause the water not to fully drain and your machine will have a out of balance load...a loose belt will just slip and make noise,,,

there is a panel in the back you can remove to check the drain pump...let me know if this is helpful...

A flopping noise


I've had the wheel bearings go out 2x on my '01 .. and the noise starts out similar to a flopping noise. Its kind of hard to describe - but if it seems to be coming from just one side of the car - I'd have that checked. It's not too terribly expensive.
