Washer noise
« on: March 26, 2010, 11:02:28 AM »
Thanks JW for the info,I've replaced the drive block and nut and now all is good,machine working like a new one.Thanks to uou guys and this site.

Guys, it looks like i have the same problem.  Could you estimate for me how much the parts will cost?  Washer is 11 years old and pretty inefficient.  If i can fix for "cheap", i will.  But it might be better to get a new one.

Model LSQ8243HQ0

Hi gradyholt,

I have split your reply into a new topic and referenced the other topic you replied to.

Is the model number of your washer also, WTW5200SQ0 if so we can look up some part numbers for you and post them.

If your model number is different please post your model number so we have the correct information.

Hope you find our site helpful.

I think you may have missed a "3" in your model number.

Maybe it should be LSQ8243HQ0

Here is a topic with some info and photos about agitator dogs that maybe helpful.

yep.  missed a 3.

when i get to spin cycle.  agitator works good.  however, it makes a loud screeching noise each time the agitator "resets".  just an awful and loud grinding noise.

Check the dogs and take a look at the top of the drive block under the agitator and let us know what you find.

dogs are good.  they seem to catch when i spin the top of the agitator and are not stripped.

i assume the drive block is the piece sticking out from under the agitator.  nothing seems off there either.  the top of the drive block does not seem worn and i don't see any metal shavings anywhere.

So everything works ok other then it making the screeching noise?

Exactly when is it making this screeching noise?

works fine.  the screech/grind started during the spin cycle at the end (after the rinse)

A couple things I would look at that could make the noise.

1. Clutch
2. Something in the pump or tub that is rubbing or scrapping.

hmmm.  clutch...  i think i might have my name on something more like this:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/LG+-+3.5+Cu.+Ft.+5-Cycle+Super+Capacity+Washer+-+White/9215903.p?skuId=9215903&productCategoryId=abcat0910002&id=1218060486665

it's 12 years old and frankly pretty inefficient.  plus, clutch price and the fact that i really don't know what i'm doing... 

thanks all for your help.  hopefully i can put this guy back together...appliance spring dropoff day is in 2 weeks ;)

take care.
