hey all
today i got this beautiful 3 year old LG 8.5/4.2kg direct drive washer dryer. (NOT STEAM). it works, but when it washes it makes a noise but its not the motor. it sounds like a pump and i think its the water circulation pump because it doesnt spray much water out when it does. has anybody had this problem before? i'm look at replacing the watrr circulation pump

I would suspect a lint buildup is the cause of the problem.  Examine the water path prior to replacing the pump.

Try cleaning the filter, if the problem persists then the circulating pump and/or the pipe leading to the spray maybe blocked.

Never had this problme with my LG WM12220FD which is about 4 years old now.

All the best

I would love to have one of these to play with or keep as a backup machine.   Hoping that someday an American sized 220v combo will surface once again.

thanks guys
i bought this machine mainly to use as a second dryer as i have a whirlpool heavy duty and its not really worth drying smal loads in it. and to my benefit i remembered i have a maintenance contract that i can have the machine fixed under. needs a new door boot (a small piece broke off so that is why the owner sold it) and because its been standing the drain pump takes a while to kick in.
but its an excellent machine. very energy efficient, super quiet and a very good capacity (can hold a king size duvet)
