Hi John.

If the drum is whobbly and making noise, then you may have a bad drum bearing. Replacement is a major repair.

If the noise is rattling, ensure that instead of coming from drum the noise is not coming from a trapped object inside the tub. Foreign objects such as small coin end up in the coin trap, whigh is located in hose to drain pump.

Once you drain down the coin, this will end up being caught by the trap filter.The coin trap is accessed removing the panel at the lower front side of the machine. Be prepared to collect water in the hose with a container. Remember to disconnect power before performing any maintainance.

If instead the problem is the drum bearing, you will get the noise turning in a loud rumble or high pitched noise when spinning.
In that case the repair is done accessing and replacing the drum. Outer panel, belt and part of motor assembly must be disassembled in order to reach the bearing located at the back side of the tub.


Bearing for this model.

Loud humming on spin cycle slow down lg washer

Hi Charlie,

We too have an LG - purchased purely because its "drum is directly driven by a motor" and NOT driven by rubber belts which are slower and can wear and break and are noisy - It is ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL that ALL washing machines on EARTH are LEVEL or else ALL H*LL will break loose! The LG machine is SCREAMING to be LEVELED!
Use a spirit level sitting on top of the machine to check that your LG is NOT sloping is level if NOT then adjust the feet accordingly. Check your machine for level VERTICALLY and also level from FRONT TO BACK. This is a B*STARD of a job to do. If you can't be bothered with it or don't have cash to buy a spirit level then ask around for a local retired handy person who would be thrilled to do it for you in exchange for a few PINTS OF BEER. Also take care that your Washing Machine
DRUM is NOT overloaded or OUT-OF-BALANCE - evenly distribute YOUR WASHING in it. FINGERS CROSSED. ;)

My washing machine shakes during spin mode

The machine must be level or it will shake. There should be feet under the front which screw in and out. Get a spirit level and adjust the feet so it is sitting level front to rear and side to side.
Also make sure it isn't rocking slightly when it's not running - if so screw out one of the feet till it's steady. If you don't have a spirit (bubble) level compare how vertical the sides are to the wall/cupboards etc. However a level is best as even a little lean can make it shudder.
Or your putting too much washing in it!

During the lest spin cycle ,the drum spins like its out of balance, with bad knock , viberation. even after making sure the load is balanced in the drum. even without a load or water, (empty) it still...

The machine sounds as if it might be unsteady. If it only happens on the spin it is probably slight. Try levelling it at the feet, using a spirit level helps enormously to get it level.
