    If you lift the lid mid-spin cycle, do you see the basket was spinning ?(possibly a bad coupler) Can you see the bottom half of the agitator moving? (possibly bad agitator dogs) Drop me your model number (lift the lid and it will be in the rear ceneter where the top and lid come together) and the results of these tests so we can get you taken care of.

I have an LG top loading washer, model WT4870CW. During the wash cycle the machine makes a grinding noise. The noise does not occur during draining and spin cycles. Any idea what could be the issue?


Is your agitator moving back and fourth, when on wash cycle
Could be your plastic agitator spline is stripped,

Take it out and check the plastic teeth is not worn inside.

Making an awful ratcheting noise during aggitation and spin cycles


Under the agitator there is a rachet mechanism that works the agitator. If it is stripped, it will skip until the next good tooth.. when it fails entirely the agitater will stop going back and forth. Its nylon and age along with overloading hastens its dearg.. If you can get the parts you can replace it yourself without difficulty. There is a single bolt in the center of the agitator top . Remove and loft agiyator straight up.

NAV5800a top loader washer


The inside of your agitator became worn, and possible strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. The loud noise mustly occurs during the spin cycle. If you hear this loud noise your load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.

Agitator fall off and knocking noise during spin cycle


there should be a rubber washer with the bolt. if it is missing the bolt may back of during agitation. also the threads on the transimision may be stripped. Some Green lock tight found in most hard ware stores should help. the knocking noise is probably due the agitator coming loose.
