Page 31 seems to have a service bulletin for this.
Just to keep this thread alive as the LG nightmare does not seem to be going away.  I had the same experience with my LG WM3570HWA.  There was enough information on this thread to give me the courage to take a look under the hood.  What I found was just like everyone else, my bottom counter weight on the washer floor.  I did not replace with washers but just made the bolts very tight and added loctite.  I have had this washer for 3 years brand new and it has always made some type of noise during the spin cycle.  Recently the sound has become much worse, our machine is on our second floor and I swore it was coming through the ceiling.  It also grew legs and walked around our laundry room.  Long story long, this reattachment of the weight fixed everything (makes me think the weight was never properly on the machine from the store), prevented a service call or new purchase and the machine has never ran so quietly!  Thanks to everyone that posted this similar problem and the the solution!
Dishwasher Repair / Dishwasher keeps running
« Last post by rkious1 on December 14, 2019, 09:24:02 PM »
Got a Dishwasher that the customer says runs all night long and when he gets up its still running. He opens the door and steam rolls out. The model is 665.12783K310 and its built by Whirlpool . I have the service manual and not much stands out in it. My guess is sensor or board but going to see if anybody has ran into it on this series.
I believe you need the 675806 pump and impeller kit. It includes a new seal.
I couldn't figure out how to edit the above post I made, but here is an update:

I re-checked the leak for quite a while & several start-stop of the machine, hoping for clues.
When the machine has water in the tub and it is off, there is no leak.

But when the motor starts, either in Wash or Drain, water sprays under the machine for less than half a second, then stops. It isn't enough to make the floor wet, just a brief, light mist.

Looking under the machine, there is a black disc at the top of the motor. I think the water is coming from above that disc, but below the tub. I apologize, but my eyesight is poor, so I can't verify.

Going back to the parts diagrams, I am still lost a about which seal is bad. And, I haven't re-investigated the groaning noise yet.

Thanks Again for helping & sharing knowledge!
Hi All!
I have a Kitchenaid KUD1230BWHO dishwasher from about the mid 1990's (Before Whirlpool bought Kitchenaid)

When the unit pumped to drain last evening, the pump made a loud, groaning sound. Then the sound quit & it pumped fine.
Today, I looked under the unit and turned the pump on. Water sprayed from around the motor. (I have poor eye sight, but I think the motor fan was throwing the water.)

On Line, I searched for a seal for the leak problem and bearing for the loud noise, but got myself very confused. There are several seals for this machine's motor area and I sure can't figure out which one is the one to replace.
As far as the loud noise is concerned- There are no foreign objects stuck in the pump, so my guess is there is a bearing to replace. Again, I had no luck finding a part related to the noise. (I did find a whole, new pump but it was over $600.00. We'll skip that option for this machine.)

Without seeing the unit in person, do you all know what parts are required, or do you have any tips for me to use in diagnosing?

I sure appreciate the help and education.
Enjoy Today!
PS: By coincidence during yesterday's drying cycle, a door spring broke with an enthusiastic Bang! Curse of Friday the 13th? (Also my wife's birthday. Ouch!)

This situation on improper vent  piping is getting to be bad news. I took back a dryer since the folks who bought it complained it would not heat after one day of use. In checking the thermal fuse it was open. I replaced it and told them they would have to revise the vent piping at their house  or it would happen again. These fuses are costing me about $15 and I wondered if any one has a cheaper source of these thermal fuses that are reliable.

You can always bend the post of the ground block back and take the ground block out and remove the Square 1/4 flat fine thread nut that sits inside the block and take it to a Big Box store and match up the nut to the bolt but make sure it sits back in block flat o Cec you replace it after you find the correct bolt. Most importantly it MUST be tight when you place the plug on it. Failure to tightened it all the way will result in burnt wire / burnt block or worse. Dryer could not heat or turn on also with improper tightening of the block nuts and bolts.

Sounds like a bad transmission. You can always try replacing the neutral drain kit. But my moneys on the transmission. Well worth fixing or replacing trans.
