Without actually being able to hear it, this is a bit difficult, but first unplug the machine and shake the tub by hand. Squeaking now = good, minor problem like a shock absorber or loose part/ unbalanced machine. No squeak now = rather bad to very bad.
Rather bad would be an object between the inner and outer tub (usually a scrapping sound)
Very bad would be the shaft from the "spider" has seperated. (uncommon, but sounds likely in your case) the spider is the drive shaft and the three arms (normally fused as one solid part) which drives the inner tub. Replacement is at least a two hour job, if you've done one before, and it's still a pain to do. The first step is to remove the large nut at the center of the "hub cap" (the direct drive motor's rotor) If that does not come off, you have to use an angle grinder or something similar to grind or cut it off. The shaft would need to be replace anyway if the shaft has seperated from the spider arms. (be careful not to damage the "hub cap" (motor rotor) Then the rotor is removed, the bolts behind it removed to remove the motor's stator (all those electrical coils) unplug the plugs to the stator, and now the real fun begins. You have to remove the entire outer drum from the machine, seperate the two halves of the outer drum so you can remove the six bolts holding the spider onto the inner drum. Re-assembly is no easy job either, especially lifting the tub assembly to hook the springs back on. On a difficulty scale of 1 - 10 for this washer's repairs, this one is a 10. I would not recommend this for a do it yourselfer.

Testimonial: "thank you for your help, we noticed that if we pull the drum forward and turn it by hand the squeak (like a birds loud tweet) vanished but then when let go and turned by hand its back "

Lg tromm washer leaking from front door

We have the same problem with our LG washer. Don't think the door can be adjusted but I'm not for sure. I think the gasket is wore out but haven't checked on fixing the problem yet because it barely leaks.

My lg 7KG 1405F model in does not complete the washing cycle stops at rising (oe) is the code

OE is drain error, which means that the machine has detected that the water level is not lowering quickly enough...Probable cause is a blocked pump filter...Check via small door at floor level..Unscrew pump cover and clear filter....Remember that all water will drain from this point, so drain machine first...Leaning the machine back can help...Good luck....Nomess

It showing cl on the screen


Thanks for using FixYa. CL means child lock, it might have got locked. Try pressing "dry" & "spin" together for a 10 seconds or until the CL disappears. Also try pressing "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.
If this doesn't work then try pressing "options & select" till the light goes off.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Never heard of that; I would try a new door latch as I have never had a bad control issue with the operation of the door latch. There is no real way to test it. I can getb you the latch if interested. I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks
