If the tub spins freely with no power on and makes no noise, chances are the problem is coming from the hall sensor (sensor assembly) which is located on the stator. The part costs around 20$ the part number is 6501KW2002A

    It could be one of two things, hopefully the lesser of the two.

    1 could be you have something stuck in between the two drums, maybe a bra wire of something,



    2 it could be that your bearing is going. The good news on that is if your unit is less than 5 years old the parts are covered...labour on the other hand is not.



    to check for the bra etc, you can remove the front panel and then remove the heater and go through there or if no heater go through the bottom hose connection at the tub, drain it first though.

How do i repair a lg washer that makes a grinding noise when slowing down from spin cycle


It sounds as if the tub bearing on your machine is faulty. To replace this bearing one needs to basically strip down the entire machine.
Not a job for a novice.

LG Tromm WM2277HW during high speed spin makes noise


I had exactly the same symptom...grinding noise only during high speed spin cycle.

I took the top and back panels off to see how the drain hoses etc. connected. Not wanting to take it apart further, I eventually just took the washing machine outside (I knew I was going to be dealing with water!), pulled the debris catcher front side bottom, and let rip with a garden hose inside the drum with the catcher out (leaving an open drain that could flow unimpeded).

Water flowed quickly out of the open drain, and lo and behold, a small drill bit came out with the water flow. This bit, presumably had gotten through the drum grating, and was resting on the bottom of the housing, scraping and grinding when the drum was spinning.

Grinding Noise when Washer Attempts to Spin


It is probably the same problem because it is trying to drain during the spin cycle. My machine sounded as though a chain wis clanking, the solution was removing a coin caught in the drain pump. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.

Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!
