Question about LG WFT1071TP Top Load Washer
Following up my comment from yesterday, I took the machine apart and discovered that the black rubber cover on the valve that releases the cold water had perished and cracked, and wasn't opening properly.
I tested the hot and cold solenoids and everything checked out ok. Was just the cold valve sticking.
The wash cycle was working because I was using hot/warm water. As the rinse cycle needs cold water to get started, it was not working and the rinse and spin cycles wouldn't complete.
I have swapped the valves over for now (put the working hot one on the cold side and am using cold water only). It's working while I order a replacement...

This is probably a lid cover open protection. Check to see if there is a magnet on the cover, positioned almost to centre (slightly to the right) at edge of the cover. There is some sort of plastic catch to house the magnet. If it is not there, place a magnet at the corresponding area on the washer where the plastic catch will touch when the lid cover close.

No you just need to get the drain hose up higher...the water is siphoning out and is either caused by the end of the drain hose still in water and not having an air gap or the hose is not going up higher then the top of your washer...
Lifting the hose up should give you an air gap and get the hose high enough to stop the siphoning...

Testimonial: "I am extremely impressed that this won't cost a call out service fee. . . and looking like a bimbo. thanks, heatman!"
Have you already check your drain clean out? If it's not draining, you'll need to manually drain the washer, via the small hose that pulls out, once it is drained you can unscrew the large clean out filter, and see if anything is caught up in that area.
If all that is clear, it's most likely, you'll need a new drain motor. Also, did you notice if your getting a "OE" error code on the display?
