Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My LG front load washing machine makes a loud buzzing/vibration when I think it is trying to fill up with water. Prior to this problem water was leaking from underneath when the washing machine was filling up. It seems to spin ok and when I checked underneath the machine there was one small black hose that was not connected, but I could not find a spot whre it would connect to.

Rick...this sounds like a problem with the fill valve or the water supply to it. The buzz should be a valve opening. I assume you have noted no kinked water hoses.

First, set the machine on either hot or cold water wash and try to fill the machine. Then do the other. That will tell you which of the two valves is not performing. Now that you know which one is malfunctioning, turn the water off at the spigot side and then remove the hose from the back of the machine for the non-functional feed. Turn on the spigot on to see if you are getting water flow. If not, check for a clogged filter washer on the spigot side. If so, do the same on the machine inlet valve side. If both are clean, replace the valve...it is jamming.

I don't know what the black hose you describe is. It may be an overflow drain.

i think the problem that you have is one of the electric coils from the entrance valve from water. Check if there the vibration comes from there.

If this is a front loader it could be the up/down motion causing machine to vibrate against the floor. You can pick up some cushion pads for front load washer and dryers at the dealers to go under the four corners of the machines.
