Our LG WFT652 worked fine, until today, it's get's through the cycle fine, then gets to spin. The barrel won't spin, but the water does get pumped out. 

 

I pulled the thing apart to see what was happening, and you can see from the video, where the noise is coming from:

Anyone have any idea's on how to fix it?

 

Thanks

Dan

This design is not one that I've seen before.

 

May be more common in markets outside the USA


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

No, it's just keeps emptying out the water, and clicking without spinning for the rest of the cycle.
