My LG3360 washing machine is making a rattling noise when the drain pump operates. See here in test mode.

It is working, but noisy. I want to confirm the part # for the pump, and also wonder if I should disassemble and see if something is just stuck in the impeller or if it just needs to be replaced.
thanks for the advice.

That model number is incomplete. Please post the complete model number from the machine's model and serial identification tag.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

That would usually be a first step, yes. Check for foreign object(s) in the pump.

Thanks Dan O. I've ordered one, will have it on hand in case it's not debris. Would rather not open it up more than once if possible!

The new pump fixed it.

The old pumps impeller was loose and not sitting flat.

A foreign object may have gotten into the pump and damaged the impeller.

Thanks for the follow up.
