I replaced my drain pump motor on my washing machine (LG WM2277HW) about six weeks ago because the tub was not draining. It worked fine after. Now it is doing the same thing. Could it be a bad motor again or is it something else? Also there is a loud humming noise coming from bottom of the washer near were the drain motor is? Thanks
It is unlikely for the drain pump to fail after 6 weeks, although it can happen. The first thing that you will want to check is to make sure that there is nothing clogged in the drain pump that would cause it to not run and would cause the vibration noise. If there is something clogged then you will want to test the unit by putting it into a diagnostic after the pump has been cleaned. If the pump does not pump the water out then it may have been damaged by the debris.
