Lg Front Load Washer (wm2455hg) Noisy And Sick

bryanpaul52 :

how do you mean noisy ? in spin ?

Customer: Whenever spinning even when it does the initial load sense where it spins around
Customer: It sounds like a growling
Customer: And it's hard to push the drum around when its off
bryanpaul52 :

okay, when you do turn the tub by hand does it make noise then too ?

Customer: Let me see ....
Customer: No
Customer: Washer says it has a inverter direct drive whatever that means
bryanpaul52 :

if this is hard to turn by hand you may have something between the inner and out tub. (like a sox or something small) can you remove the top of the machine and see if you can see anything in the drum ?

Customer: No is it possible to send photo. Basically there is a rubber seal with two folds one which runs next to where you put clothes and something could fall in there but I don't see anything and no way to take top off that I see
Customer: actuallysee actually now it's not very hard to turn
Customer: sorry autocorrect is going crazy
bryanpaul52 :

okay so its not hard to turn ?

Customer: not as easy but not hard as I thought
Customer: itthought it doesn't want to make it up and over
Customer: And when the washer is on you can hear a slight squeaking noise
Customer: okaynoise okay I'm sorry it's not hard to turn
bryanpaul52 :

alright,what I would check first is the drain pump.
