Hi,

This will be either the motor bearings or the main drum bearing.

To find out, you need to take the back off, remove the belt, and spin the drum and motor by hand, and see which one squeeks.

My bet is the drum bearing. Good if it is as it's cheaper than a motor.

Look online for replacement parts HERE

You need to check if it is the right part for your machine, and may be cheaper elswhere.

It is a job for a competent DIY'er or technician. If you are unsure, employ the services of a domestic repair technician.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Loud humming on spin cycle slow down lg washer


Hi Charlie,

We too have an LG - purchased purely because its "drum is directly driven by a motor" and NOT driven by rubber belts which are slower and can wear and break and are noisy - It is ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL that ALL washing machines on EARTH are LEVEL or else ALL H*LL will break loose! The LG machine is SCREAMING to be LEVELED!
Use a spirit level sitting on top of the machine to check that your LG is NOT sloping is level if NOT then adjust the feet accordingly. Check your machine for level VERTICALLY and also level from FRONT TO BACK. This is a B*STARD of a job to do. If you can't be bothered with it or don't have cash to buy a spirit level then ask around for a local retired handy person who would be thrilled to do it for you in exchange for a few PINTS OF BEER. Also take care that your Washing Machine
DRUM is NOT overloaded or OUT-OF-BALANCE - evenly distribute YOUR WASHING in it. FINGERS CROSSED. ;)

Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine


Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

NAV6800AWW - noisy


hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
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.

Loud screaming sound during spin cycle


The screaming noise is probably from a dry bearing in the motor, it will probably come and go and shouldnt cause to much problem, they are supposed to be self lubricating but sometime they run dry.
