SOURCE: lg washing machine wm1832cw door is locked with

This is most likely due to non-pump out of the water. It could be a plugged filter or a bad pump motor. First thing to do is to get a pan or bucket and open the big screw filter behind the access door at the lower left on front of the machine. All the water will come pouring out, so be ready. Machine will probably unlock on it's own then. (if it is still plugged in) If not, you can take the top off by removing the screws on the bottom of the plastic clips at the back of the washers top. Now, standing in front of the machine, use the palms of your hands to sharply push the top back about an inch, then lift the top off. With machine unplugged, you can reach down to manually relaese the door lock.

SOURCE: I neet o replace drain pump on a LG wm1832cw model

its not easy, but you'll have to lay the washer on its back and take off the crate like bottom panel. Discontect all the hoses. Disconnect the electrical line going to the pump. If you can, try and seperate the pump motor from the housing by unscrewing two screws on the housing, which will seperate the motor from the housing, If you cant get to it, I actually broke the screws on the drain filter housing to get it loose. I secured it back with the other front loading screw and some gorilla glue, shouldnt be a problem. I should at least get another 6 years out of this pump. Good luck.

My LG WM1832CW has no error codes it will agitate but won't spin or pump water,so far I changed the sensor assembly and rotor assembly

Why did you change the sensor & rotor assembly? Did you test them first and found them to be faulty or are you just randomly guessing. If it doesn't pump the water out it will not spin. It has to be empty before spinning can start. So you probably have a drain pump fault. Start by checking if there is a blockage in the pump or hoses.

Lg wm1832cw de error occurs when starting the washing. after multiple tries, it might start

It is a door lock error caused by bad door lock switch or if your door is very hard to swing closed because the hinge is corroded, then the hinge could be causing the door lock to error.

Washer will not spin LG Washer WM1832CW

1. Open back of the washing machine and control panel. Locate two wire harness coming out of main motor and main board. Check the wires for any cuts and harnesses for any corrosion. Fix the cuts and sand the corrosion to fix the issue.

2. Check the windings on the motor by pulling 3-wire connector from main board. Check resistance between each of 3 pairs using multi meter. The resistance should be 8-15 ohms. If one or more pair has no resistance reading then the winding is burned. Replace the rotor winding.
Rotor windings can be ordered from here:

3. If windings are fine then the hall sensor or speed sensor or motor sensor or sensor assembly needs to be replaced. The hall sensor sits on the inside of the rotor winding. Hall sensor has 4 wire connector attached. To remove the hall sensor: Open the outrunner or magnetic rotor from the motor first. Remove a big bolt at the center of the motor by holding the magnetic rotor. Once bolt is removed, the magnetic rotor can be removed by simply pulling it straight out. You may have to wiggle it a bit. Now remove a screw holding a wire going to hall sensor towrds bottom left of the winding. Now remove six inside bolts holding rotor windings to the drum body. The rotor windings are heavy so be careful while removing the bolts. Remove two wire connectors from the rotor windings and pull out the windings. Lay the rotor windings flat facing connector side up. Remove the hall sensor by praying out tabs.

Hall sensor can be ordered from here:
