LG washer pounding noise
We just bought an LG front loader and were having huge problems with water hammer as it filled - the whole house seemed to shake (we have high water pressure - separate issue) I just want to post here as I spent a long time searching and I found a simple way of fixing it just before I returned the machine. Buy a water hammer arrestor - basically it is a shock absorber for water pressure.
I bought two (from amazon just as my local hardware store did not have them; for about 10-15$ each)and the problem was gone.
but there may be better/cheaper ones out there - I just did not have the inclination to spend more time on it.
Since I often search here first and I was unable to find a posting, I wanted to mention this to anyone else with this issue as it is really easy to fix, but really frustrating while it is happening.
