SOURCE: Problem with LG WD-8023FB washing machine

Hello sir,

  1. If a washing machine is rumbling, and very **isy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  2. A**ther drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is **t always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.
  3. Loud **ises when turning the drum by hand can also be caused if the drum itself splits, or the spider at the back of the drum has come away from the drum, is corroded or even broken. This would **rmally be a loud **ise on each revolution of the drum whereas the **ise when drum bearings have gone is constant all the time the drum is turning. Lifting the drum checking for excessive play can often reveal a broken or loose drum spider which sometimes only occurs at certain points round the drum (the spider has three arms and is bolted to the drum at three points)
  4. Coins or other obstructions trapped inside the tub under the drum can make horrendous **ises as they get tossed about on spin. They often don't make the **ise unless laundry is in though. Look out for obvious dints and creases in the drum itself as evidence of a coin or similar stuck inside although be aware that it only shows there's been an obstruction in at some point and the coin could have fallen into the sump hose or filter and **t actually be the cause of the **ise at this time
  5. Other causes of a **isy washing machine are coins and other obstructions inside the water pump. This will cause **ise when the washing machine is emptying the water. Coins or other obstructions can get trapped between the outer tub and the inner drum. This would produce a lot of **ise on spin as the coins get tossed around inside. Often, spinning the drum by hand will **t reproduce the **ise in the case of coins because the coins drop to the bottom of the tub and lay flat when the washing machine isn't spinning
  6. A light scraping or ratchity **ise when the drum is turned by hand is commonly a bra wire trapped between the tub and drum. They can often be removed from underneath with the sump hose taken off. It's always worth checking that the wire isn't poking through one of the holes in the drum which can be pulled back out from inside the door. It's rare, but I've retrieved 3 or 4 this way over the years.
  7. A high pitched squealing or harsh **ise can be motor bearing wear. This can also be checked for by taking the belt off and running the motor alone.
  8. A k**cking **ise can be a loose tub weight. This would **rmally be worse with heavy loads and would **t be present on spin with ** washing in. This is because the k**cking **ise is caused when the tub (or outer drum) shakes about on spin. Without washing inside the drum the tub doesn't move. A**ther symptom of a loose tub weight is grey concrete dust under the washing machine. Warning: These days most washing machines have plastic tubs and over tightening a tub weight bolt can easily shear the bracket resulting in a new tub being required. Try loctite. Often, once a tub weight has come loose the plastic tub is damaged anyway especially if it isn't caught early e**ugh
  9. Sometimes a badly worn drive belt can cause a surprising amount of **ise. I've even come across some where i was convinced the drum bearings were gone until I took off the belt and spun the drum by hand to find ** **ise.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Quiet Wash - Wash Cycle not holding water

Since your washer worked fine while in Germany and now is exhibiting this problem at your new home, you may want to double check how it was installed. I suspect you may have a problem known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

http://vr2020.cn/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

This could be a simple situation where the drain line on the washer is not installed correctly. There are minimum height and length requirments on the drain line. In addition, make sure the stand pipe you have the drain hose inserted in has a proper air gap to allow draining. All of this is explained in the link provided.

I hope this information is helpful to you. The majority of the situations arise from improper installation and is not an operaitonal problem with the washer. If, however, you double check everything and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

My Mom is 90 yrs old and lost her machine instructions. The model is front loader WD 80250 NP ( now 4 years old). Can I down load the manual? My other question is: On the Cotton cycle does the programme...


Home Depot Sales Associate-

You can find the manual for the product here.

http://www.lg.com/levant_en/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=WD-80250NP&matchedModelCode=NOT_MATCHED&searchEngineModelCode=WD-80250NP&initialTab=documents&targetPage=support-product-profile

The unit is designed to only operate properly with a hot and cold faucet connection. The exception is if it has a cold wash cycle and you are operating it on such. (that model should not) Also, once you set the cycle, you should not manually interrupt the cycle to change to the desired portion of the cycle. Front load wash units take longer to run due to the usage of less water. They also need high efficiency detergents to operate properly and cannot be overfilled with detergent.

Your description of a soap lather sounds like you are using the wrong detergent and in the wrong quantity. HE only.

When going to wash with my GW11 it stops during the was cycle and the cold and hot water light blink and the machine beeps


Hi just read your posting.Now, when the hot and cold lights flash at the same time it means that you are not getting enough or no hot or cold water.Remove the cold and hot inlet hoses from the machine end and put the ends into a bucket.Now turn the taps on to see if you have water coming out the hot and cold hose and if the water pressure is adequate.Try a cold fill on the wash cycle and see how it goes.please reply and let me know if there is water coming out of the hoses at a good pressure and also what water temp do you select on the wash cycle.Looking forward to your reply.

My Kenmore washing machine trickles water out very slowly during the rinse cycle only


Hi, Remove the inlet hoses and clean out the screens inside the inlet valve. Most of the time it is the cold water that gets plugged up. Because you state the rinse cycle is filling slow, I believe the cold is your problem.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Cold water Washes


It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.

During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Zanussi WJD1667W not drying at all


Hi,

I've got this machine, and all washer dryers tend to have two heating elements and it sounds to me that the heating element for the drying side of the machine's functions needs replacing. You could probably find a cheap element for the machine somewhere and get it fitted for a small sum.

Let me know if this rectifies your problem

LG Tromm WD 12270 RD washer and dryer


Hi, I don't know how to fix your problem, Lia, unfortunately, BUT wanted to say "Thank You!!" for mentioning that you can get the washer to run through the cycle by rotating the drum and switching to cold water wash! We'd tried unplugging, leaving it unplugged overnight even, but the code/beeping started immediately after plugging back in. I'm kind of longing for an old-school washer right now, thinking of all the things that can go wrong with the newer digital-age computerized ones :-) If you see this, please share what you did to solve your washer problem! Hoping it's not too expensive to fix...or I should say to GET it fixed :-\

Some magic happened today!

I got the thing (wd-12331ad) to dry without having to run a wash first!

Also, I seemed to get it to do a spin only run...

The way to get it to dry :
-----------------------------------
(for a set time - I've not managed to get any of the auto-dry settings to work)
from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the "Dry" button 'til "Time" lights up
>>> press "Dry" again to get the desired duration
> press the spin button 'til the spin speed shows blank/ the RPM light goes out.
> press "Start/Pause"

It will then dry for the number of minutes specified!

Not perfect, I know but that's serious progress from where I was before; having to re-run a wash cycle to get it to dry anything...

Something to note:
- The machine worryingly sounds like it's starting to fill with water when you start the "Just Dry" program which scared me at first. BUT it stops after a second or so (I think it's just cleaning out the detergent tray so it doesn't bake any leftover powder)


For "spin only" from machine being off:
-------------------------------------------------------
> press the power button.
> press the spin button
>>> if you press "Start/Pause" now you get a 13 minute 1200 spin cycle
>>> press the spin button again and then "Start/Pause", it seems to drain itself for 1 minute
>>> pressing spin repeatedly, cycles through the spin speeds.


Things I don't know:
----------------------------
- I don't know if you can combine spin and heat.
- I don't know whether the auto-dry programs are available
- I don't know what other programs are available from the "Dry"/"Spin" buttons

...So if anyone does any experimenting, please let us know the results, you never know, we might end up with a half way useful set of instructions! I'm starting to think the machine's not half as bad as it seems when following the manual alone.

Hope that helps.

Cold water continues to run during entire wash cycle


Adrea, sounds like you need a new valve. When it's doing this leaking, unplug the washer. If it's still leaking you know for sure it's the valve. Part number for the model posted is 22002360. Catriver..post back.
