Hello,

My LG Steam washer (W2487HWMA) began making a whining noise during the wash cycle. The noise is not present during spin cycles. With the washer turned off, I can spin the drum slowly and re-create the noise. It almost sounds like the drum is rubbing against rubber. Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance!

Check that model number again.  It's probably WM2487HWMA

 

Reach up at about the 10:30 position in door boot and check for a piece of clothing stuck there.

The model is correct as you have it. I left out the M.

Nothing stuck in the door boot. The washer is fully dry now and the noise is gone. So it clearly only makes the noise when it is wet.

Channeling Brother john63, our LG laundry professor emeritus in absentia:

 

It's an unusual symptom---possibly an early indicator of bearing failure.
 
The Bearing Seal may be rubbing (disintegrating).
