Not pumping out water

I have had the same problems many times with this washer. It is usually something that has made its way into the pump inlet located below the tub. You will need to disconnect the water lines and the power, tip the washer back and access three 8mm screws on the bottom panel located across the front of the bottom panel. You will then see numerous hoses connected with spring clamps. Remove all the spring clamps and disconnect all the hoses. You will have quite a bit of water dump out, but this is normal. Look inside all the hoses to see if there is a blockage. Also feel around inside the openings of a clear plastic container located at the back of the washer. I have found socks jammed inside completely blocking the water flow. In one opening you will see a small white ball...this is normal as it is a check valve and needs to remain in the container to ensure proper operation. If you have not found any blockages in any of the openings, you will need to remove the impeller from the pump motor. As you look at the bottom of your washer, it is located on the right side halfway between the front and the back with two short hoses attached to the plastic container previously mentioned. Remove the two small clips holding the impeller to the motor and you will be able to pull it down. Insert your finger into the opening and ensure the blades inside rotate freely. I have also found a penny stuck inside the impeller in the past that has not allowed the impeller to turn. After removing any obstructions, replace the impeller and reconnect all hoses securely. Hopefully this will fix your drain problems. I have had this washer since 2003 and I have had to follow this procedure nearly once a year. Hope this helps!

I have a front-loading LG washer model WD 80150TP. Recently it makes loud abnormal noise during the spin cycle. Could you please tell me how to fix that problem?

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

For replacement of bearings check for tips on this visual link:

When the pads on the front wear, it will make noise when running. They can be replaced. There is one on the top and one on the bottom rim where the drum turns. You remove the front to access them by removing the screws on the top. Post your model number for diagrams. It's usually stamped on a small tag in a visible location on your appliance.

Washer-Dryer- behind or on top of the control panel. Behind the door. On the lower front or side of the cabinet.

Water leaking and loud noise and rattling on final spin cycle

Turn the drum by hand and if you hear any noises it is the rear bearing. If there is no noise then remove the front bottom panel and take out the coin trap on the pump and check those hoses.

Loud clanking noise when washer is coming to a stop

Noise can come from these areas:
The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:

  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.

  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.

  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top.

Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.

The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).

  • The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly.

  • If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor.

  • The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator, near the front and behind the kick plate. Occasionally the electric motor inside the timer may become noisy. The timer must be replaced to solve this problem.

The bottom of the refrigerator Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”
