LG WT4801CW making loud noise.
Posted 19 July 2013 - 02:30 PM
The noise sound almost like a deep screech or low pitched grinding. It only seems to occur during the wash cycle and not that I have noticed during spin or rinse cycles. I'll post the link to my YouTube video below. I am not well versed at dismantling and repairing washing machines. I'll break a dryer or car or small engine or computer down all day long, but I just don't have much experience with washers.
I wasn't sure if the unit would still be covered by any manufacturer's warranty or if I would be better off letting a pro look at it or do it my self. Or if repairs are too costly, buy a new one (which I'd rather not do).
If any other information is needed, please let me know and I'll be happy to oblige. It may be a little hard to hear, but around 30 seconds into the video it really starts up. There is basically two types of noises, one really loud and one that happens a few times in the video, but the very end you can start to hear it if you have trouble finding it during the video.

What's the serial number of this washer?
Try putting the unit into Test Mode and see if it will do all the operations. Video any weirdness.
