Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
The machine uses a recirculation pump and it is likely that it is where the noise is coming from. Drain water from the machine then unplug it. Open the pump filter door at the front left bottom and pull the small plug on the left of the filter cap. It is the plug for the sump drain hose. Remove the plug and drain the sump water before removing the filter to avoid flooding your floor.
Remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter and reach the recirculation pump impeller on the right to check if something is stuck in there causing the noise or the impeller itself is scraping the housing.
You can also activate the QC Test to check the working components one at time and determine where is coming from. Press and hold the SPIN SPEED and SOIL LEVEL buttons simultaneously then press the POWER button. The buzzer will sound twice, all lamps turn on, and the door locks up indicating that the QC Test Mode is activated successfully. Press the Start/Pause button repeatedly to cycle through the test modes.
Refer to the table below for the test steps, the parts tested and activated, and the display shown during the step.
