Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

2 Answers

I have a LG wm2277hw washing machine. the drum will spin a little and then make a scaping sound like friction. The drum has a lot of play in it. Is there a hard plastic washer or shim that wears out. The pump filter had grey pieces in it.

Sounds like your drum bearings and seals are shot, you will need to replace the rear outer drum ***'y and possibly the shaft/spider; (if the shaft is rusted to the inner bearing races). in any case; it's not a cheap and easy repair.

The symptoms that you describe sound like the spider or support arms of your washer has failed. It the part that holds the wash drum true in the plastic tub. It's a rather difficult job to replace the spider since the washer has to be taken apart to get to the spider. Fortunately, LG does sell the spider, instead of making you buy a new spider and drum. You may need to also replace the plastic tub parts if they are too damaged to be reused. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace.

Remove back cover and check for a loose nut that holds the rotor. you may have to replace the rotor( is the cover that holds the magnets). Not the stator (which is the motor.)

Lg tromm wm2277hw will not spin


Press the SPIN SPEED and SOIL LEVEL buttons simultaneously to enter QC test mode and check the frequency of the water level, if the display shows 248 or more:
NO: Check the sensor switch assembly and also the pressure hose, replace either if faulty.
YES: Press the START/PAUSE button twice while in QC test mode and check whether the drum spins at low speed, this is normal.
If no reaction from the drum at all the the main PWB assembly board will need replacing.

LG Tromm Model WM2277HW washing machine not operating right


It is possible that the drum is off center, shifted in the alignment and had a friction at the base of the drive. It is possible that there is bearing failure or there is a fault in the drive. If you experience that there is friction manually even with a hand turn then the assembly must be reset. check this link for tips: Bearings

Our LG Tromm Washer is struggling to spin. Humming sound in the beginning and then displays LE on the panel. Heard it may be the Stator Sensor/Part. Any Advise please!!!


Definitely the Stator/Sensor/Hall switch. Go to http://www.mcminone.com and order part number 6501KW2002A (if your machine is model number WM2277HW). Remove rear panel, remove three retaining screws for sensor wires at left bottom of drum, remove drum outer retainer bolt in center, stator assembly is now exposed. Remove bolts holding stator assembly (I think there were six) and replace switch assembly by lightly prying tab locks off of stator. Press on new switch and reassemble...

LG Tromm WM2277HW during high speed spin makes noise


I had exactly the same symptom...grinding noise only during high speed spin cycle.

I took the top and back panels off to see how the drain hoses etc. connected. Not wanting to take it apart further, I eventually just took the washing machine outside (I knew I was going to be dealing with water!), pulled the debris catcher front side bottom, and let rip with a garden hose inside the drum with the catcher out (leaving an open drain that could flow unimpeded).

Water flowed quickly out of the open drain, and lo and behold, a small drill bit came out with the water flow. This bit, presumably had gotten through the drum grating, and was resting on the bottom of the housing, scraping and grinding when the drum was spinning.
