Hi,

It sounds like your main bearing has gone out. It's quite an expense to fix and generally isn't worth fixing even if you do the repair yourself as the parts run about $600 by themselves and it takes about 1/2 a day to replace them. You can't replace the bearing itself so you have to replace the rear half of the outter tub and the inner tub.Check your motor coupling, it is between the motor and transmission,made of rubber and plastic, if it is not broken and you heard a lot of screaching ,i would say it is your basket drive tube-could have gotten worn down on the bottom around the clutch brake area! Better purchase a used basket drive tube,install it with a new clutch and it will start working for you.

Thank you !!

Is there an external thermostat that can be used for this and there is a vibration noise, any suggestions?


I'm not aware of a wall thermostat for this heater, because it does not have a Millivolt Control. As far as the vibration is concerned, does it just occur when the fan is on? If so the fan or the fan motor may be loose. Or the fan itself is out of balance. As make sure the fan housing is properly attached to a wall stud or studs.

Washer shakes terribly in spin cycle


Does the floor or the walls shake? If they do you have to beef up the flooring under your washer, with blocks between the floor joists, piers, or sistering of the joists. If there is no shaking of the floor or walls, and your washer is solid on the ground, leveled and not rocking, then it is your washer. Lg has problems with too much vibration in their washers. Check to make sure that your lint filter/coin catcher is clean. Open the door in the bottom front, put a towel down to catch the water, Unplug the washer, and unscrew the large plastic screw that is the filter for your washer. If this has debris in it clean it out completely. Look in the hoses also, if your water drain is restricted by lint or coins or other debris, the washer has clothes in it that are wetter and heavier than they should be, and this will cause sever vibration. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Tub vibrates and hits side walls on spin cycle.


Open the top, and look for worn or broken vibration dampers between the outer tub and the cabinet walls. Shake the tub to help locate the problem areas. Hope this helps!

It shakes so violently, it knocked 2 holes in the wall. During the spin cycle, it also turned completely around backwards!! It's so loud it practically shakes the whole house.


take bottom panel off,check the shocks,if it is making loud noise it's probably spider gear,if you keep using it the boot could rip off and you'll have a flood,get rid of washer it will cost as much to fix washer that you could buy a new one but that's up to you to decide

Washer shaking


first make sure the shipping bolts were removed from the machine, then make sure it is level, then if it still shakes, take your fist and hit it on your head... jk, if you have it on a wood floor, or your floor isnt 100% sturdy, you cant do anything about it besides using anti vibration pads. they wont do that much tho.
