Question about LG WFT1071TP Top Load Washer
Check the lid cover. At the edge, there is a plastic housing some sort of a magnet. This is the magnetic sensor for lid cover open protection.
If the magnet is not there, place a magnet at the position on the washer where the housing will come in contact with the washer when lid is close.

I noticed there as a space on the machine closure and figured that the magnet must have fallen. I just removed a magnet from one of my bathroom cabinets and placed it as indicated in the answer above and voila! Back to business. Thanks for the help!

I got the same problem that first answer is the best answer but i solve this by different method first you have check about wire system because sometimes rats cuts wire and all of the stuff. Then open the back control panel area(where name and model type printed) there is a black colour little box, when lid open and close there is a connector with the lid and box. short both end of that little box and it will fix the all

I tried one small fridge magnet without success; I tried another, slightly bigger, fridge magnet and that didn't work either. Finally I tried an even larger fridge magnet and it worked! Hurrah! Thank you so much

I had the same problem (wash & spin indicators blinking & continuous beeping). So changed the magnet, but still it didn't work. I tried several techniques, but couldn't succeed. So I called a technician. He came and opened the control panel cover & repaired within two minutes. He charged me (LKR 2500/- in Sri Lanka, which is equivalent to 20 USD). Basically what he did was, there is a small sensor (little larger than the size of the magnet) which senses the magnet on the lid when the lid is closed. If the magnet doesn't come near the sensor, this sensor cuts off the power supply to the machine. Since this sensor wasn't working he just simply short circuited it- by passing the the power supply over the sensor. How to locate the sensor ? This small rectangular shaped beige colored sensor is located on the side of the mother board (when it's fixed in the washing machine's mother board cavity) very closer to the location where the magnet on the lid touches the operating panel.
