    I'm having similar problem with a wf-t753a top loader. My problem is that it's not pumping enough water to fill the machine on the rinse cycle, so the wash and spin stages never finish. It is pumping just fine on the initial wash... Am just trying to work out how to pull it apart without breaking it!

    Hi, Please help..

    My LG WTF-6517TC does not rinse and spin. The WASH function is working perfectly but when comes to RINSE, it is not draining any water out. So, I power off and choose the SPIN function, it is also not working and not draining water out. What should i do? Please help....

Following up my comment from yesterday, I took the machine apart and discovered that the black rubber cover on the valve that releases the cold water had perished and cracked, and wasn't opening properly.
I tested the hot and cold solenoids and everything checked out ok. Was just the cold valve sticking.
The wash cycle was working because I was using hot/warm water. As the rinse cycle needs cold water to get started, it was not working and the rinse and spin cycles wouldn't complete.
I have swapped the valves over for now (put the working hot one on the cold side and am using cold water only). It's working while I order a replacement...

    PS: The part number that I needed to replace is 5221EA2001D (aka 5221FA1921V) or A181. I found a non-genuine version for under $50 AUD on ebay. There is also a single valve version Part Number 5221FA1921W.

Why on an LG Front loader does the FE code come on and not on Rinse & Spin?

Here is the LG site for washing machine error codes, you can scroll down and find the FE code there:

The site shows the following:

The FE error code indicates the washer is overfilling. This is usually the result of a faulty water valve.

1. Close both water taps.

2. In order to drain out any trapped water, power the washer back on and press the Spin Speed button until No Spin is selected and press the Start/Pause button.

3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.

Kenmore 80's series top loader only works on wash and rinse cycle

This is a problem with the pump being stuck so the motor cant turn the whole thing. Turn the washer on its side, underneath you can acces the pump, which is connected to the motor by two long clips. remove the pump and take out the colg that caused it to get stuck.

Washer won't drain or spin

top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin
