Question about LG WM Washing Machines
If it spins empty i'd check drive belt (if it has one) or motor. If it just won't spin i'd check the drain hose between tub and drain pump for debris. If no debris i'd check door switch.

SOURCE: Drum Does Not Spin
We had the same problem on a 7-yr. old WFK02401 washer that had been used daily for 7 years. Bosch's approved repair people quoted us $350 for installing a new motor. In fact, all it needed - knock wood - was new motor brushes, for which I paid all of $45, including shipping (or cheaper, if I'd ordered directly from Bosch.) To replace these requires a half-inch wrench and a bit of confidence and common sense. I won't go into all the details, here, except to say that you need to remove just two bolts, unattach the bundle of wires strapped to the motor housing, take out the motor, replace the brushes, and put back the motor. There may be a problem with one of the control modules in the machine - electronics that oversee the washing cycle and turn the motor and other items on and off during same - in which case you may want to find a repair person. I just learned that there is a circuit diagram pasted under the machine's top cover; it includes some resistance values (ohms) that can help with troubleshooting, I believe. Bosch's own repair/service people - third-parties, all of them - are not going to want to replace brushes; they make more money doing entire motors, I imagine. Also, they do not like it when a man watches them work or worse, when a woman (aka my wife) asks them smart questions. They are used to having their way with slightly intimidated and ignorant females - trust us, and pay us. But that's another story.

SOURCE: Washer/Dryer is not spinning
ngfam1 At your service!
Sometimes this can happen when the connector from the transmission to the drive of the agitator is worn and needs to be replaced.Similar to the drive shaft of a rear wheel drive v-8 car!
Could make this sound first, like a knock,knock,knock or klack, klack,klack
OR,SOMETIMES JUST NO SOUND AT ALL AND JUST NOT CONNECTED FROM THE TRANSMISSION TO DRIVE THE ROTATION OF THE TUB!
This means you need parts! and service!
How old is the washer if it is 10 years old or more I recommend being prudish about investing a lot of money in to it!
The newer models are so much more energy efficient, that they save you water,gas or electricity And detergent too!
They can pay for them selves in energy savings in a few years!
If so here is a good company that's found nation wide.
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!

If you have got rid of all the water, and it still will not spin, then the odds are it is the brushes in the motor that need replacing.
Quite a common problem
