What can be the cause of this.

Hello. We just moved our LG washer WM2010C* into our basement. It is draining directly into a waste pipe a little less than 8 feet from the floor. The washer won't drain completely when we run it now. We've checks the filter and all is clean. We drained it manually at least 7 times now. We raised the washer about 6 inches.. not sure if raising it more would help. Have you heard of this issue before?

We spoke about our Maytag washer LAT9356AAE. Had trouble with belts which were recently replaced. The tech who came to the house pointed out that we had a drain that put too much strain on the machine pumping uphill from the basement to the drain above. He replaced the belts. I put in a new catch basin on the floor with a sump pump to pump up to the drain so the washer only has to pump at the level of the washer into the catch basin. When I started the washer for the first time since the belt replacement, the belts made a little noise, I guess breaking in and getting seated? Then they quieted down and I did about 6 loads successfully. Now I'm getting no spin and an intermittent croaking noise on the spin cycle, probably from the center belt?

I bought a Kitchenaid french door/bottom freezer 10 days ago.

I bought a Kitchenaid french door/bottom freezer 10 days ago. It runs very very loud, in fact I can hear it from upstairs. I contacted them immediately and was told this is normal, these refrigerators run loud! Unacceptable, then I don't want it, so disappointed. It sounds like my sump pump running. I called again, told me the service man will look at it but if deemed normal noice I will have to pay for the service call. This is crazy!
