    Default LG WT1101CW Squeal (no error code)

    Model Number: WT1101CW
    Brand: LG
    Age: 1-5 years

    Our LG WT1101CW started making a squealing noise. Sounds mechanical (bearing) but also like maybe a rubber seal squeaking. Video link with annoying sound attached.

    Hi Kevin,

    Here's the service manual for your model: https://drive.google.com/open?id=19Q...wPrOJfFNhHSQoM

    First read what eesutton did in post#6 here: FIXED: LG Washer WT5101HV - makes loud high pitch squeal during agitate cycle?

    If that's not the case for your model, then the clutch/seal assembly is making that noise.

    This is the clutch/seal assembly for this model:
    Clutch AEN73131403

    I was thinking it could possibly be the clutch. Crap...and of course this unit is out of warranty. The repair seems pretty straight forward; just take a little time.

    Thank you for all the useful information!
