Hello everyone... I've happened upon this site after my really nice LG washer dryer combo has worked silently and flawlessly for 18 months or better, from purchasing new.
Now out of warranty, I have to locate the cause of an odd symptom recently starting:
The dryer is making a high pitched whine during drum rotation. The whine starts immediately upon starting of drum rotation and continues. As soon as I noticed this, I've stopped using the machine.
It displays no "errors" or codes, although I've not tried any diagnostic modes, if they exist.
All functions seem to work ok. I would just like to find the cause before causing further damage, if, for example, I had a bad roller causing a "drag" on the drive motor.
I need to locate the service manual for this machine, although I have no luck thus far.
I would love to hear thoughts or experiences on the cause of this, if anyone has had any.
We have had great service thus far, and the wash/dry is superb with the set.
I have good general trouble shooting skills from my mechanic background. Currently the machines are stacked inside a closet with very good venting outside, only 2 elbows to exit and 10 feet of run... I will bring the dryer out and hook up an extension cord so that I may run the machine open if need be to diagnose.
Look forward to any help,
Thanks all for reading! DLEX3001W
