In Topic: LG Washer WM2101H Making Grinding Noise - Won't Spin

29 March 2012 - 03:35 AM

The repairman showed my husband that the bolt had worked its way loose and the middle opening of the rotor was partially worn down - I shut the machine off initially as soon as I heard clanking but it must have been loosening over time without making that much noise. So he ordered whatever new parts it needs and will be back in a few days. We are SO lucky that we are still covered by the warranty. Even so, there is no guarantee it will work right after repair. I have to leave the door open all the time. My husband had closed it and it already started to smell musty. Thank you guys for the info and if we ever need to replace the parts ourselves, I'll make sure we come to your site.

Thank you, Sensei. My husband found the receipt this morning and that he had gotten an extended warranty, through Home Depot. They will come out on Tuesday, and we'll see what they say. I am afraid if we start working on it it might void our warranty. However, at least we know that if we do need a rotor, how much they are charging versus how much we can get it for through you will be helpful to know. You don't think they will try to rip us off, do you?

I see that we got this washer in June 2009 so we are just skating in under the three-year expiration, thankfully. I have used this washer for a minimum of one load of laundry EVERY DAY since we got it, usually more like three or four loads since we are an animal rescue family, so I can't really complain too much. It has been rode hard and put away wet many times - except that I always make sure the door is left open for at least four hours if there is not another load going right in. We have had no problems even though I see I have been using too much detergent and I was using Downey for our clothes (fortunately not for all the loads of towels for the animals) So I guess we have been lucky, up to now.

So glad there is a site like this to give us a clue when things go wrong. Thank you!
