    Most common repairs needed to fix a LG washer

    Suspension Rod Replacement

    When the suspension rod in the washer is damaged, worn or broken, the wash tub will vibrate excessively and may bang loudly against the sides of the washer cabinet. This is because the suspension rod will no longer have the ability to support or stabilize the tub. A damaged or worn suspension rod can lead to excessive damage to other components of the washer, so have a Sears Home Services technician inspect the washer and replace the rod if needed.


    Electronic Control Board Replacement

    A malfunctioning electronic control board can lead to various failures in a washer. This is because the board serves as the brain of the washer, controlling crucial components such as the water valve, drive motor, drain pump, and cycles. If the electronic control board fails, the washer may not power up or display the cycle status. Additionally, it might fail to fill, agitate, spin, or drain. In some cases, a shorted board may emit a burning smell.

    Fan Replacement

    The fan ventilates the washer tub to help prevent smells, mold and mildew in the washer. A dead fan will cause odor to build up quickly inside the washer tub. Mold and mildew can develop inside the washer tub and around the door boot when the fan stops running after the spin cycles ends. Vibration from the washer could indicate a problem with a fan bearing or fan blade, and should be examined by a Sears Home Services professional.

    What to expect when you experience an LG washer vibrates issue

    How is the vibrates problem fixed?

    Correcting most vibrates problems usually involves replacing the suspension rod, electronic control board or fan. However, there are many potential causes, so a thorough diagnosis is key to fixing the problem. An accurate diagnosis is essential to understanding how much the repair will be.

    Sears Home Services recommendations for a washer that vibrates

    When the washer vibrates it can be for many reasons. To avoid replacing unneeded parts we recommend having a Sears Home Services professional perform diagnostic tests to identify the root cause of the problem. Our technicians are experienced at diagnosing all types of washer failures.

    What to look out for with a washer vibrates diagnosis

    Diagnosing modern appliances without proper knowledge and training can be difficult. Without using proper diagnostic techniques, fixing your washer problem will only be achieved through changing parts on a hunch. Appliances, especially in the last 10 years, have become extremely advanced, and many models have electronic parts that are difficult to test. DIY repairs on the latest appliance models are becoming increasingly difficult.
