Try tipping washer side to side to let the water drain out.If that doesn't work then its a problem with your motor. I recommend getting it fixed by a pro because the insides can be daunting. But if you are tech savvy the wiring guide is on the other side of the button panel and you will need your multimeter.

Lg waveforce washer makes grinding squeeking noise drum hard to trun.


The LE error or fault code indicates that the washer motor is either overheating or has lost connection to the motor control circuit board. Turn off the machine for 30 minutes to let the motor cool down. Then, restart the washer. If the code comes back immediately the motor is not likely to be at fault and so you should check the wiring from the motor to the motor control board. Also, check the wiring and condition of the rotor position sensor, also called a HALL sensor. If the code doesn't come back on immediately, but returns after the washer has run for a while, the motor stator may be defective
The tub bearing also appears to be part of the problem.

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you are hearing a constant grinding sound while your Frigidaire washer, model# ATFB6000ES1, is running. There could be a possibility that your washer is overloaded. Do not overload washer. Stop washer and reduce load. If this does help with the grinding sound, I suggest resetting your appliance. You can do this by either, unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. . I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Error message E27 appears and washer won't operate.


E27 means there is a problem with the door lock. Unplug the machine for 5 minutes and try again. If the error code returns you will need to replace the door lock assembly.


If you have anymore questions please comment me back.

Ok my LG front loading washer agitates but when it comes to spin it makes a very irritating high grinding noise and does not spin. There is no error displayed but that may be because I stop it before it...


I have a similar problem. The washer was showing error code UE, but would tumble when empty in test mode, but would not spin and made a grinding noise. The bolt that attaches the rotor to the motor was loose and the rotor was spinning on the spindle that rotates the drum. I tightened the bolt, and it spins when empty, but still gives a UE error code when full. Remove the rear cover and check the tightness of the center bolt.

My washer began a grinding noise & says


"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

Whirlpool Duet Washer Making Loud Grinding Noise


not nesseccarrily your pump, possible you have a rear bearing going bad, which will sound as if a helicopter is coming through your laundry room. ( noisy pump can be the issue , honestly a better and cheapre problem to have) in order to determine if its apump problem you can remove the lower access panel and unplug the pump then start the spinn cycle, if it still loud the pumpms not hte issue.

hi there,

the grinding noise may be coming from either the pump or you have something caught between the drums.

the f-33 error is the pump drive system error. it indicates that you have lost communication between the CCU board and the pump. the CCU board is the main control board that you see in the front of your washer.

i would recommend that you call a technician to check it out, as you will have to do some checks that require technical knowledge.

How do you fix error F5?


"F5" is a temperature sensor error. The following link explains how to diagnose and correct:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r629462-f05_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

The first thing to try, however, is to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches. If the error code reappears, then you know you have a legitimate error. In many cases, the small connector that plugs into the heat sensor either becomes corroded, or comes loose. Make sure you troubleshoot the washer while it is UNPLUGGED.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.

LG WD-3243RHD Front Load Makes grinding, crackling noise


Fixed!

"LE" code Stator/Motor Error.

It was a simple fix and only cost $17.68 at PartStore.com no affiliation.

Here is the Service Manual

http://oasisappliance.com/products/lg/LGComboServiceManual.pdf

Bonus, it actually completes a wash cycle and does not stick at 6 minutes, drying forever.

Freakin service tech stated it was the Power Control Board, IDIOT!

While I was in there, I cleaned out the heater blower assembly and sensors. They were full of caked on lint and the sensors had debris all over them.

Also cleaned out all the lint and debris around the rubber seal, this will eliminate those annoying mildew oders.

Hope this helps someone, Happy New Year!
