LG FRONT LOAD WASHER WON'T SPIN OR DRAIN

HI WE HAVE A 3 YR OLD FORNT LOAD LG WASHER.
WM2277HW. THE MACHINE HAS BEEN UPSTAIRS WHILE WE ARE REMODELING THE BASEMENT. LAST NIGHT AFTER I COMPLETED MOST OF OUR LAUNDRY . THE MACHINE STARTED TO MAKE A VERY ANGRY NOISE LIKE " HGNNN". IT WILL FILL WITH WATER BUT WILL NOT SPIN TO RINSE OR DRAIN. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
THANK YOU BY THE WAY I CALLED LG THEY SAID IF I COULD FIND MY RECEIPT THEY WOULD REPLACE THE MOTOR AND EXTEND MY WARRANTY I CAN'T FIND MY RECEIPT..MUCH TO MY GRIEF.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION , TRICIA

Pretty easy fix with a couple of strong backs. Get some pillows, lay machine on its side opposite of the lint door so pump can be seen from bottom. Unscrew cover, then 2 remaining screws that hold pump assy to machine frame. 3 screws hold motor to pump housing that is now pretty easy to get to. mark wires and disconnect. My guess is once you have motor out yo will likely find an offending coin or something. What happens is lint screen eventually needs cleaned, but something like a coin will rest on top of it and when you remove screen by default it will fall into tube to the pump, just has no where else to go, and it's a murphys law thing. Since pump is brushless, the coin likely does no harm except mess up your day, Reverse process, Wash away

Well , depending on where and when you pruchased the unit you should bve able to call the dealer and get a copy of the bill of sale, but as afar as your problem its quite possible that you havesoemthing stuck in you drain pump not allowing the water to drain and the machine will not spin without draining water first. in the lower left corner you ll find the drain acess, drain your water first then open that catch and look for foriegn debris.(i.e sock, screw/nail/ bra underwire)

    I am thrilled! I just read this thread, went to my washer(which would not drain or spin), pulled out the drain filter, cleaned out what appeared to be plastic tape that he blocked the filter, and my washer is working again! Thank you so much for the advice!

HI, YES I DRAINED THE TUB BY OPENING THE BLACK CAP..ABOUT A BUCKET AND 1/2 CAME OUT.
THE LITTLE RUBBER HOSE DIDN'T DRAIN ANY WATER.
MY HUSBAND TOOK OFF THE BACK AND THERE WAS A HALF TOOTH PICK STUCK IN AROUND THE LITTLE WHITE FAN LOOKING PIECE.
WHAT IS AN IMOELLER? CATCH ASSY?
I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH THOSE TERMS.
THANK HYOU FOR YOUR HELP.

either drain pump itself is broken or something jammed in between the pump housing and pump impellor. the drain hose itself or pump cleanout cup (behind lower left access panel) may be clogged too.
