Question about LG WD-12126RD Front Load Washer / Dryer
Has a knocking noise in the spin cycle in the last couple of weeks. Can you help? Tub turns smoothly by hand - no bearing noises when turning by hand. Slight forward to aft play in drum.
This can be a symptom of drum bearing wear. A quick check for wear is to see if the inner drum moves up and down relative to the fixed outer drum. It should only move a minute amount. If it moves more than a millimetre or two, it is probably worn bearings.
You can obtain bearing kits for most makes. See this very useful link specific to an AEG model, but it is a good general reference: http://www.eveshamsquash.co.uk/appliances/aeg_bearing.html
Also see an excellent article by Chris Tran on Hoptpoint WMA series bearing replacement, at http://www.christran.net/washingmachine1.htm
If it is making unusual noises while washing too, check there is not a bra wire or similar object trapped half way into one of the drum holes. A high pitched whine is sometimes caused by the motor bearings (but most brush/commutator motors whine a bit anyway on higher speeds, it is normal). Oil sparingly so as not to contaminate the carbon brushes.
Hope that helps...........
