Question about LG Washing Machines
When the machine is switched on to commence washing a load, the water filling process is intermittent - ie - the inlet water starts & stops several times before the machine is filled ? This creates a loud water hammer effect in the plumbing pipework ? Is this normal operation for these machines ?

the system which controls water level is an air chamber with a small diameter pipe which goes to a pressure stat. when the correct level is reached, the pressure in the air chamber switches the pressure stat and cuts the water off. the things to look for are: gunge in the air chamber split in the pipe. faulty pressure stat to test, get a similiar length of small diameter pipe and connect it to the pressure stat instead. with the machine filling, blow gently into the pipe and see if the water intake cuts off

it sounds like your water valve is bad or you pressure switch is bad or hose from pressure switch to tub is cloged

The first thing seems to be the timer,or the water level switch. Try filling the washer with water by hand, if it starts to agitate after being filled its the timer, if not it is the water level switch, let me know if you need further assistance.
