Drum wont turn or empty water


depending on the model, a broken belt is a good possibility. if you hear the motor going, but the bowl isnt moving, that is a sign of a broken belt, it is also possible the motor has failed.

Noisy on spin cycle


It's very difficult to advise on a noisy washing machine because you can't describe noises accurately enough. People often describe the same noises quite differently.

Generally though, if a washing machine is rumbling, and noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings have probably gone.

Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure is a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust.

Other causes of a noisy washing machine are coins and other obstructions inside the water pump. This will cause noise when the washing machine is emptying the water. Coins or other obstructions can get trapped between the outer tub and the inner drum. This would produce a lot of noise on spin as they coins get tossed around inside. Usually, spinning the drum by hand will not reproduce the noise in the case of coins as the coins drop to the bottom of the tub when the washing machine isn't spinning.

A light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand is usually a bra wire trapped between the tub and drum.

A high pitched squealing or harsh noise can be motor bearing wear. This can also be checked for by taking the belt off and running the motor alone.

A knocking noise can be a loose tub weight. This would be worse with heavy loads and would not be present on spin with no washing in. This is because the knocking noise is caused when the tub (or outer drum) shakes about on spin. Without washing inside the drum the tub doesn't move. Another symptom of a loose tub weight is grey concrete dust under the washing machine.

It's very tempting to ignore noises while the washing machine is still otherwise working. Some noises can be ignored as they will not develop into serious faults. Other noises, if left, will cause extensive damage and can end up costing considerably more than if tackled early or these days writing the washing machine off. Of course the problem is that you can't tell which of the categories a noise falls into - so ignore them at your own risk.

.My LG washing machine fills


Hi,
If it fills and empties, that Eliminates The Pump. If no Spin Of the Actual drum, Could Be Belt-Stretched/Snapped. Motor brushes Worn. Or A Problem With the logic board Controller Panel.
Go for The belt/Motor brushes first.

Making noise when running


It can be tempting to ignore washing machine noises, especially if the machine is still working. But washing machine noise is not only annoying, it can also be a sign of serious damage. When armed with a few tips, you can determine what problem may be causing your washing machine to rattle, and what you can do to stop it.
Instructions: 1)Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings. 2)Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.) 3)Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub. 4)Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water. 5)Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers. 6)Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.

I really need more information here, but hopefully the following covers manty of the possible scenarios.

Do you hear a motor spinning during the time the drum should be turning?
If you hear a motor spinning inside the machine then there is a good chance that the drive belt has simply come off. You may be able to just take the lid off michine (My article http://www.fixya.com/support/t1543617-door_seal covers how to do this), hook the belt over the small spindle on the motor and then put it on the big wheel on the back of the drum by placing it over one side of the wheel and spinning the drum to draw it around the rest of the wheel.

Now, if this is the case, you are going to have to ask yourself why it came off. Sometimes this will happen if you had a very heavy load in the machine and the spin cycle threw the machine all over the place, so what was the machine doing on the last occasion it DID work?. Sometimes, the belt comes off because the drum bearings are worn out and there is movement in the drum. To check for this, open the front door of the machine, put your fingers on the drum on the inside and try to lift the front of the drum upwards a little. Bear in mind that there is an outer drum, with the drum that spins inside it and what you are feeling for is the inner drum moving inside the outer one, this will be obvious and "Clonky" if it is worn out. You are not looking to see of the whole drum assembly rocks smoothly inside the chassis, It is supposed to do this. If your bearings are worn out and this has caused the belt to come off, it may well be accompanied by a small, but worsening leak from the back of the machine as the water slowly leaks more and more through the bearing. I'm aftaid that if this is the case, then, depending on the age of the machine it may be time to scrap it. Certainly a bearing replacement is possible as a DIY job, but it is a real pain and not for the faint hearted.
So then, on to the scenario where you CANNOT hear a motor running during the wash cycle when the drum should be turning. This is probably the motor faulting out. Once again, a few checks: does it NEVER run, or will it still spin the washing? Your motor will have up to 4 electrical windings inside it, One for the standard turning motion when there is water in the drum during a wash and up to 3 more that kick in at various stages of the spin as it gets faster and faster. If it still spins, but will not wash, then it is almost certainly a burned out winding in the motor and you have to replace the whole motor. This will cost you (as a rule of thumb) about 25-40% of the cost of the machine when you bought it.
If the belt is on but the motor does nothing at all on any cycle, there might be a loose connection on the back of the motor (A plastic connector block with around 6 wires clips into the back of the motor, check it is firmly in place). Or, the brushes in the motor may be worn out. You can get separate replaceable brushes for most motors. If you can replace an altenator on your car, you can replace a motor on your washing machine, the principle is exactly the same. If you get to the point of taking the motor out, give it a good physical inspection, looking for burn evidence on the wires of the winding, water drip damage AND have a good sniff at it. If you smell that horrible burned wire and plastic smell, you know that the motor is going in the bin.

Drive belt and noises.


your drum shaft is broken this is making the pulley wobble causing the belt to come off and it will also explain the noise. This is a very expensive job sometimes requiring the complete tub to be changed might be time for a new machine
