    I had the same problem. The sound became worse and worse until it eventually gave up the ghost. I had it fixed (out of extended warranty by a few months unfortunately) only to have it start again a month or so later. The guy I had fix it said that many front loaders have this problem because of the heaviness of the loads. I've just bought a new machine (one of the water-saving top loaders).

    The washing machine makes a loud noise and vibrates so much at the beginning of the spin cycle that it wanders around the room. Presumably the damper units have worn and as these look like friction dampers I wonder if there are some “new improved” replacement units available that use viscous damping?

    Taking the machine appart I found teh drum spider had corroded and cracked. Prior to the banging and jumping we were getting a lot of problems with the machine not emptying and bits of corroded material in the filter. This was causing the machine to not spin out during its cycle

It could be that the springs have become lazy (stretched) and not supporting the spinning weight as good as they once did or as happened to me one of the shock absorbers at the base of the unit has come adrift from its securing point. Replacement parts are easily available but you will need someone strong to fit them with all that new tension.

LG Intellowasher 7kg wd-8015c is leaking from underneath


the drum.........which you pop ya washing in.......hangs via 2 spring under the machine lid..........if 1 snaps........you will get more noise......and maybe water leaking via the door seal as the drum wont sit level.........
remove lid then look either side for 2 springs.......
if 1 has snapped its an easy fix.......take you about 1/4 of a hour to do.

cheers

LG Intellowasher 7kg, Model WD-8074FHB - noisy spin cycle


You are right!

Bearings have to be replaced. Replace with the same type and design. All the bearings connected to the washer center shaft has to be replaced at the same time with new set.

Replace the water seals also connected to this. Check the shaft where the bearing sits, for any abrasions or metal damage.

Check the bearing housing also. While carrying out these repairs check the drive belt also. If needed replace it.

If you are happy with the machine outer body and other aspects repair it and re-use it.

Is there a filter in the LG INTELLOWASHER 7kg. If so where is it. The model is WD-8074FHB


its located on the bottom right of the machine front - open the flap and you will see a round filter base. ONLY OPEN THE filter during the last of the spin cycle to clean it, this is when most of the water has been pumped away. Opening it while the machine is off will cause a gush of water over the laundry floor.
