LG WM1480 spinning problem

Hi, My LG WM1480 washing machine is having a problem spinning at or below 1000rpm. Initially it spins fine but when there are 6 mins on the clock it stops spinning and starts refilling with water (through the prewash part of soap dispenser) then empties (but doesn't spin) then refills and empties non stop. The timer sticks on 6 mins. This doesn't happen when a 1400 rpm spin speed is selected - it spins correctly till end of cycle. We have checked the filter and there is nothing blocking it. I'd be grateful for any help.

Unfortunately you will need to have the main board replaced on the unit. Something has happened to the software settings on the main board for that particular cycle/spin speed. The only solution at this point is to replace the entire main board. Hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

Vibration during spin cycle


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.
