The machine stops during the middle of a load. I have taken apart the hoses on both sides of the drain pump, thinking there was an upstruction and it was not draining properly, but found nothing. It seems to sound unusually loud during the draining cycle. Any suggestions?

LG washing machines come in a widevariety of models, each with unique features, functions and design. Many of thebasic functions of each model are universal when it comes to running the washcycle. If the washing machine stops in the middle of a wash cycle, the firststep that should be taken is to perform troubleshooting steps to determine thecause of the problem. After the source of the trouble has been established, itcan be resolved in most cases by continuing the troubleshooting process.
1 Make sure the lid is completely closed. Certain partsof a wash cycle will not start if the lid is not closed.
2 Check the load to see whether it isunbalanced. If the washer gets off balance, it may stop in the middle of acycle. Redistribute the clothing so that it is evenly balanced around the drum.
3 Make sure the hot and cold water faucetsconnected to the washing machine are turned on fully. If the washing machine isnot getting enough water, it will not be able to complete the cycle.
4 Inspect the drain hose for clogs orobstructions. The washing machine may stop if it is unable to drain waterproperly. Check the drain pipe that the hose feeds into for clogs or debris.
5 Check the house's circuit breaker panel orfuse box. The circuit may have been tripped or a fuse may be blown. Replace anyblown fuses and reset any tripped circuits.

It sounds like your Door Switch assembly may be faulty. During the cycles, the machine thinks the door is open, so it pauses the cycle.
Can you hear the machine drain? If not, this could be a Drain Pump problem, or Drain filter problem. You will need to remove the panel to access the Drain pump at the bottom of the machine. Remove the Drain pump hoses and clear them out. Make sure your Drain pump is also clear and turns freely.
Does the machine's drum spin? If not, you may have a Motor or Motor control board problem.
It sounds like your pump is pluged up or stop working. You will need to take out as much water as you can. Unplug the machine. From the back side you will see a pump with two hoses. You will need to remove one of the hoses and drain the rest of the water. Then check pump to see if there is any blockage. You might need to remove pump and take apart. It could be build up, nail or small screw. Only simple tools with screw drivers should be needed. Rinse and spin cycle will not work with water in the machine.
It's the same pump but, the click you hear between cycles is a solenoid switching between hoses. Chances are-you have a buildup of debris at the inlet of the pump. I've removed baby socks from them already.
go back to drain pump.. pull pump out ckd the impeller on motor pump shaft there should be a slight resistance when the impeller is turned by hand ..have seen impeller come loose of motor shaft and free wheel
if is an asko remove the top panel and check the triple valve for a faulty solenoid,also remove paddle from inside the drum with a screwdriver in the middle hole and pull toward you,and look inside the black sump hose to see if theres a plastic ball in the hose if so you need to remove it take of front panel/s to get access to the hose.also check for coins in the hoses acting like a valve.let me know and i will think of somthing else
there some simple solutions but may not always work but everyone should try. underneath when the water pump engage with the tub. there;s a white plastic clip press it out and turn the water pump. it will come off the tub. before doing this you should have the washer disconnected. have someone or put something under so the washer won;t fell on you while reaching down. sometimes debris gets stucks on the way from the tub to the pump. it insert your fingers inside once the pump is taken out and if you find debris take it out. put back the pump and connect the washer again. this can be a very simple solution it won;t work all the times. but what if it does. :)
