LG WM2101HW - Wash Drum Hitting Washer Door

13 March 2011 - 06:29 PM

Hi, my new LG washer has a problem during medium rpm spin cycles. The wash drum is either moving too far forward and hitting the door due to lack of shock damping or there is too much air pressure being created when the drum moves, which pushes the door open till it is stopped by the locking latch. It is very loud and not normal. I've tried small, medium, and large loads and they all do it. Although, more with small to medium loads. I am leaning towards the excess air pressure cause because I hear a ton of air noise and I have been watching the spin cycle and taken rough measurements. I haven't read anything like this problem online. My fried has the same unit and has never had the problem. It's odd.

I noticed there are some "bellows" in the design diagrams that appear to vent the drum as it moves and essentially acts like an accordion. It looks like there is the primary vent on top, the hose for the dispenser which could act as a vent, and maybe one vent on the bottom of the drum connected to the drain pump. Is there any way these could have been installed incorrectly, or maybe become blocked? Has anyone heard of this before? The LG washers are pretty much all the same design, so this should be a common problem assuming the unit was built properly, which is why I am leaning towards an assembly issue or something. Thanks for reading.

LG WM2101 washer bleach dispenser not completely flushing

08 March 2011 - 02:58 PM

Hi, I just bought a LG WM2101 and the bleach tray doesn't flush completely, which is surprising. I have watched the operation of the machine and it seems the bleach portion of the tray is only filled once, which starts the siphon action to drain the tray. There is a decent amount of bleach/water mix left in the tray and I'm concerned colored clothes will be affected on the next load. Is this a common?

I can confirm I have, what I believe, is good water pressure. Water does indeed fill the tray and I do not fill the bleach tray above the max line. I would be surprised if there is an obstruction since there are water strainers on the water inlets. I'm surprised the machine doesn't fill the tray twice just to be sure.

Thanks, Rob
