LG WD-8074FHB frontloader washingmachine, vibration during spinning

Hi,
My washing machine create loud noise and vibration during spinning. Machine levelling is good. Spinning without load is oke. With full load, banging the body and machine moved. I didn't see anything wrong inside the machine. A year ago I replaced bearing and after that runs smoothly.
Problem started when I put a quilt inside (machine was shaking), since them we got this problem.
Kindly advise me what can i do?
Thank you
Toni

    I seem to have the same problem as Toni, every time I have a load on the drum inside is banging around and machine stars walking all over the place. You say that the shock absorbers at the base of the unit has come adrift from its securing point. We can't seeing anything at the base is there supposed to be absorbers at the base we can only see the 2 springs on either side of drum could you le me know regarding the base, thaks. Stella.

As happened to me, it could be that one of the shock absorbers at the base of the unit has come adrift from its securing point.

LG Intellowasher 7kg, Model WD-8074FHB - noisy spin cycle


You are right!

Bearings have to be replaced. Replace with the same type and design. All the bearings connected to the washer center shaft has to be replaced at the same time with new set.

Replace the water seals also connected to this. Check the shaft where the bearing sits, for any abrasions or metal damage.

Check the bearing housing also. While carrying out these repairs check the drive belt also. If needed replace it.

If you are happy with the machine outer body and other aspects repair it and re-use it.

Is there a filter in the LG INTELLOWASHER 7kg. If so where is it. The model is WD-8074FHB


its located on the bottom right of the machine front - open the flap and you will see a round filter base. ONLY OPEN THE filter during the last of the spin cycle to clean it, this is when most of the water has been pumped away. Opening it while the machine is off will cause a gush of water over the laundry floor.

Hotpoint VBSR2080WOWW washing machine vibrates with loud noise


hi,
this is a generic problem with top-loading washing machines. when the distribution of load is not uniform, it gives sound when spinning. if it produces noise even after equal distribution of clothes, the problem lies in the suspension. this is not a major fault, and can be put up with, rather than spending dollars on fixing it. this will in no way cause any special wear and tear for the machine.
cheers

Vibration of wash machine


Hi!

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary. If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

LG Intellowasher 7kg 800rpm WD-8074FHB washing machine now makes a very loud noise when spinning whereas before it was completely silent. machine still washes & spins OK but the noise is very loud and...


It could be that the springs have become lazy (stretched) and not supporting the spinning weight as good as they once did or as happened to me one of the shock absorbers at the base of the unit has come adrift from its securing point. Replacement parts are easily available but you will need someone strong to fit them with all that new tension.

LG Direct Drive WM-16220FD loud vibration during spin cycle


the pump hose is knocking if you can unplug the machine and tilt the machine on its back you can see the hose get a cable tie big one you can cable tie it down that would stop it from moving that's why its knocking if the pump is not on that side then your suspension leg is on its way out meaning you will have to call your local second hand shop to have a look but be for you do have a loo your self save money
