LG Front Loader WD10020D is really loud on spin cycle
« on: May 26, 2014, 12:20:16 AM »
I have an LG front loader model WD10020D which is just over 4 years old. All of a sudden its become extremely loud during the spin cycle, it sounds like a jet taking off. It doesn't make any other banging noises so I doubt something has fallen in and it's level on the floor. Its happened during the past few washes, some large and some smaller so I know I'm not overloading it.

I'm trying to work out if its a problem with the DD motor (covered under warranty) or not before I go through the hassle of getting an LG technician out.

Open the door, put one hand on the SS inner tub and the other on the plastic outer tub and see if you can move the inner SS tub up and down with the outer plastic tub staying in place.
Report back.
