    Thank you Mobilian



    My washer is 6.5kg top loader so this is probably not the manual for mine as the pics are of a front loader

    The loud humming might be the use of too much soap. The motor over amps if suds are present. Control picks that up. Trys to correct problem and overheats itself eventually failing all toghether.

    Does urs have the magnet underneath the lid. Fall off easily, may have been what u found. If so glue another in its place this may? help with the noise, keeping lid down better. Goodluck, I just fixed another problem on mine

FLC271W2 washer squeal during wash cycle


LOUD NOISES IN washing MACHINE;

LOT OF THINGS TO CHECK, THE BELT LOOSE OR WORN, THE CLUTCH, THE TRANNY, THE BEARINGS BOTH TUB SEAL AND BEARING, THE REAR DRUM BEARING,
THE DRIVE PULLEY- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley might be worn out, cracked, loose or bent. Remove the drive pulley and inspect it carefully. If it is damaged or defective replace it.
THE TRANSMISSION, THE MOTOR COUPLER, THE MOTOR DRIVE BEARINGS,
THE DRIVE MOTOR- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive motor bearings may have worn out. Washer motors are normally almost silent when they run. If the motor is run without a belt hooked up to it and it's loud it will have to be replaced.


If the washer is making a loud noise the drain pump might be going bad or might have something caught in it. Remove the drain pump from the washer and inspect it carefully. Look for anything that might be caught in it, a piece of wire, plastic, etc. If nothing is wrong with the pump, but it's still noisy it will have to be replaced.

Lg wm2277 does not drain or spin


if it does not drain it will not spin humming noise is probably something jammed in the drain pump if youre machine has a clean out you can access the inlet to the pump and clean out the debris from there if not you will have to pull the hose off . if you bail as much water as you can from the tub and tilt the machine back at a good angle it will be possible to get to the pump without having to get a shop vac to clean up the water after words.

The problem is with the spin cycle, its stops just hums as time ticks by and stops. Had to empty manually to drain water. Its a 5.5 LG fuzzy logic machine, any idea which part this may be?


Open the access door at the lower left on front of the machine. Use the hose there to drain the water out of the machine. Unscrew the big knob there and pull out the attached filter. Clean out filter and replace. If filter was clear, replace drain pump motor.

Water can't drain out properly


hi
i think all the fuzzy logic machines have an electric pump so it is maybe not running to pump the water out or i have had problems with the electronics that run the pump

Cl error


From Terybul:

I took the cover off the drain pump and found a penny lodged in it. Please note this is a new drain pump and motor combo that I replaced on the machinge approx 5 months ago. The original pump is solid and you can't take it apart to clean it. If there is a piece of clothing in it, you can try to pull it out. I did this before when I had the original pump, but it never worked the same ... it made a loud humming noise when spinning. I bought the replacement piece off e-bay for about $70. It was fairly easy to install. The new pump is easy to take off and check ... it has only 4 screws. Try to drain the machine as much as possible and have several containers ready to catch the water or you will have a flood ... see note 1.

Before you do all this, check the external drain hose ( the hose from your washing machine to the drain in your wall) was clogged with a penny. The original external drain hose has a valve that keeps water from coming back into the washing machine. On an occassion one year ago, I found a penny that had lodged in the valve and kept it from draining and thus the "FL" code.

Note 1: A good way to drain your washing machine is to take a hose pipe and put it in the top of the machine and then use a manual air mattress pump (in reverse mode) on the opposite end of the hose that you put outside. After several pumps on the air mattress pump sucking the water through the hose, you will create a suction that will keep flowing until much of the water is out of your tub. Be ready with several containers to catch the rest of the water when you take the hoses off the pump.

Note 2: Check pockets well to keep things from getting into the drain system. Use a delicate wash bag (a mesh bag) to wash undergarmets, hose, hankerchiefs, and other thin items that might get sucked into the drain system.

Noisy


usually a noisy machine means either the main bearings have gone or the motor has got damaged/worn in some way. to check the main bearings try lifting the drum with the hand from inside or rotate the drum with the hand to see if the rumble can be felt. i cannot think what else would cause a loud humming though.
